There’s a video clip making the rounds online that shows South Carolina AFL-CIO president Donna DeWitt hitting a pinata with South Carolina governor Nikki Haley’s face on it:
I just got off the phone with DeWitt, who confirmed she was the woman in the video. Did she have any regrets? “I don’t regret it,” she says.
“As you can see, I’m not vicious, I’m not hateful,” DeWitt adds. “I think if we’d had a donkey and played pin the tail on the donkey with her face on it, I guess, it’s a children’s game and I guess people would have gotten upset about that. There was certainly no viciousness. It was all in fun. Although she has bashed unions for quite some time.”
