As if losing for the second tome to Republican Scott Walker in last night’s Recall elections wasn’t enough, Democratic challenger Tom Barrett was slapped in the face by a women while he was greeting supporters.
No word on whether this woman was in fact Scott Walker in drag. Or maybe the slap was intended for Scott Walker for him secretly ending Wisconsin’s version of the Lilly Ledbetter Equal Pay for Equal Work Act for women.
UPDATE: The woman seen slapping Tom Barrett was not Scott Walker dressed in drag. She was a supporter of Mr. Barrett who was upset that he conceded the loss to Scott Walker so early while people were still standing on line to vote. When Barrett was asked about the incident, he told reporters that the woman asked him if she could slap him for giving up so early. Barrett told the lady that he would prefer a hug instead and when he leaned forward to hug her, her hand forcibly introduced itself to his face.
Barrett admitted congratulating Walker on the win after he was determined to be the projected winner… less than an hour after polls in Wisconsin closed.
