Ryan Ekvall and M.D. Kittle on the Wisconsin Recall Election and Milwaukee's Crime Stats Controversy

As Ryan Ekvall and M.D. Kittle report, Gov. Scott Walker's campaign shifted the spotlight on Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett after a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel investigation found that, since 2009, the city's police department misreported more than 500 incidents to the FBI as lesser offenses.
