Talk about adding insult to injury.
Via Political Wire:
Compounding his loss in yesterday’s gubernatorial election in Wisconsin, Tom Barrett (D) was slapped in the face by an angry woman.
Here’s a close-up of the woman as she goes in for the kill:
Via WaTi’s Kerry Picket:
. . .12 News’ Terry Sater just spoke to the mayor about the ‘slap.’ Barrett said the woman asked if she could slap him for conceding. He said he’d rather she hug him. So he leaned down. . . and got the slap.
Slater reported to his news desk:
“A woman who had been very angry that the mayor had conceded prior to the polls. . . all the votes being counted, rather, she was upset with the mayor. . . she came up and she slapped him and said, ‘How dare you concede, while there are people still trying to vote inside the Ziegler building.’”
