Retiring South Carolina AFL-CIO leader bashes Haley pinata

Here's the latest example of viciousness toward SC Gov. Nikki Haley -- the outgoing president of the South Carolina AFL-CIO, Donna Dewitt, beats up a Haley pinata at her weekend retirement party.

Watch the video here.

The Columbia Free Times reports that the national organization is embarrassed.

“Do you think we can get this video pulled,” asked a national AFL-CIO official in an email to Palmetto State union sources.

The author of the email also worried the video might get “picked up by tea partiers, maybe even Haley herself, to attack labor again.”

Haley seems to provoke unnatural loathing from her political opponents and has been the subject of a number of false stories and accusations, stretching from a rumored IRS investigation to allegations of infidelity.

That's helped lead to her demise as a potential Veep possibility and now she rarely even cracks the top 10 in VP power rankings.
