TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey assemblyman is calling on a union leader to resign for comparing Republican Gov. Chris Christie to Adolf Hitler during a Statehouse rally.

Communications Workers of America vice president Chris Shelton referred Thursday to the governor as "Adolf Christie" and to Democratic leaders of the Legislature as Nazi generals.

Shelton addressed 3,500 union members in Trenton protesting legislation supported by Christie and the Legislature's Democratic leadership. The legislation would require public employees to pick up a larger portion of their pension and health benefits costs.

Republican Assemblyman Jon Bramnick wants Shelton to resign.

CWA political director Bob Master says Shelton has apologized and the decision on whether he continues in his role is up to the union members who elect him.
