Milwaukee mayor calls his niece the real hero

Email

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett says his niece, Molly Barrett-Flood, is the real hero.

Barrett spoke for the first time about being attacked while he tried to help a woman near the Wisconsin State Fair last weekend.

Barrett spoke in his front yard, with his hand bandaged heavily and cuts obvious on his face.

The mayor's assailant could be charged Friday.
