(Newser) – Tom Barrett's concession to Scott Walker in the Wisconsin recall vote prompted a minor assault. A supporter smacked the Milwaukee mayor across the face after he made the call to Walker, USA Today reports; apparently she was angry he'd conceded while some voters were still trying to cast ballots. The woman asked permission to hit Barrett, according to a local reporter; he said "I'd rather you hug me." But video shows Barrett got no love.
