A Wisconsin woman who supported Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in the recall election against Gov. Scott Walker gave Barrett a little slap on the face Tuesday night after his concession speech.
According to WISN, the woman was upset Barrett conceded as people were still casting their votes.
Barrett — who didn’t want to talk on camera — told Sater the woman asked him if she could slap him for conceding and he offered to hug her instead.
“He said the woman actually asked him, ‘Can I slap you?’ She was upset about him giving the concession speech while she still felt there were votes to be counted,” Sater said. “He looked at her and said ‘I’d rather you hug me’ so he leaned down thinking that she was going to hug him and she slapped him.”
“That was sort of the end of the little spat they had going there. But the mayor really was just stunned that she’d actually reached up and slapped him. She was just upset — some of the passions of the evening coming out about the results here, the Democrats losing,” Sater added.
