Not sure what to say about this but, wow.

After tonight’s tough defeat for Wisconsin Democrats a supporter slaps defeated Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett for conceding while votes were still being counted.

As the news report explains, the women asked Barrett if she could slap him for conceding while the final vote tally was still being counted. Barrett said he’d prefer a hug. She went for the slap.

Watch.
