If there was any doubt, PA is officially fiesty right now…

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A union official on Tuesday described Republican Sen. Rick Santorum as “the anti-Christ” on issues affecting working people. Pete Matthews, president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, Council 33, made the remarks during a luncheon speech before union retirees.

“I kind of refer to him as the anti-Christ, but I guess I’m not supposed to say that, but that’s what he’s about,” Matthews said, claiming Santorum lacks a record supporting working people. Santorum’s opponent, Democrat Bob Casey, spoke at the same luncheon but did not arrive until after Matthews’ speech…

Last month, Bill George, president of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, apologized for having said in a newspaper interview that some see Santorum as an Adolf Hitler.
