Talk about a slap in the face.

All Mayor Tom Barrett wanted after losing the Wisconsin gubenatorial race was a hug. He got slapped instead.

After giving his concession speech in the race where Governor Scott Walker won his own recall election, a woman came up to him and asked, “Can I slap you?”  Apparently, she was upset about him conceding while she felt there were still votes to be counted, reports Politico.

Barrett responded, “I’d rather you hug me.”  Thinking he had made himself clear, he leaned down and received a slap in the face.

The Washington Times reports that Barrett was stunned and “just simply walked away after that.”
