McCain volunteer admits to fabricating attack story

Police tell KDKA that a campaign volunteer has now confessed to making up a story that a mugger attacked her and cut the letter B in her face after seeing her McCain bumper sticker. Ashley Todd, 20, of Texas, initially told police that she was robbed at an ATM in Bloomfield and that the suspect became enraged and started beating her after seeing her GOP sticker on her car. Police investigating the alleged attack, however, began to notice some inconsistencies in her story and administered a polygraph test.

  • Initially I was disgusted and angered and wanted to vent over comments. After seeing the picture I withheld judgement as should of some of the usual McCain supporters should have done yesterday. If you don't understand how stupid you looked yesterday, today you should. Although I'm sure as hell not betting on it.

    • The only people who looked stupid were those that assumed from jump st., because they support Obama, that she must be lying. The proper response from anyone is just what the Obama camp did, they expressed sympathy and left it at that. Then let an investigation take its course.

    • It looks to me as though she used a mirror to cut the "B" herself. It is in reverse, if the photos I have seen are correct. (And I may have seen a reversed photo on Fox today. Or if this has been refuted in earlier comments I have missed it.)

      She is a very warped individual who is an obvious zealot attracted to McCain, much like the loony woman who tried to arrest Rove. They are on both sides. But this woman seems lucid enough to just be called dishonest and scheming, intentionally tr More..

    • Actually those who knew from the start that this was BS were right on. The morons were the facist Republiphiles who jump on any piece of crap left out in the trash, no matter how stupid or nasty without checking into things. Anyone having backwards or upside down writing on them (via Tawana) is sadly/rightously suspect due to stupid people not thinking before writing on themselves. No one is disputing real acts of violence such as the attack against a McCain supporter in Manhattan, or on a Ob More..

    • You idiots on the right amaze me...do I need to reference you to all of the reposts of this story that were thrown up on liveleak yesterday and the dumbass ass comments given by the right before they knew wtf was really up? Your side was plain wrong and jumped the gun yet you still deny them doing so? You my friend suffer from republican denial syndrome and should seek treatment...truly pathetic at any cost!

  • Dear Lying Brain-Dead Stupid Fucking Lame-Assed Idiot Bitch from Hell,

    In a tight election with intense racial overtones where I have to struggle on a daily basis with false allegations of racism every time I make a legitimate criticism of my democrat opponent, I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate you making up a completely BS story about being beaten up by a 6'4" black man because you were working for my campaign. Given the fact that historically, false allegations like yours More..

  • That letter "B" looked too well drawn. I knew it! Ha ha! It's funny how "still" she was.

  • You see this is the kind of sh1t that's gets innocent guys locked up for things like rape for 15 years.
    This stupid little b1tch could have ruined someone's life.
    Throw her in the slammer for a while.
    I wonder how many people have been lynched over the years because some little slut's tired of their boy-toy's.

  • Pretty despicable lie, particularly with the racial insuinations she added. This does nothing to improve the image of McCain/Palin supporters who are already seen as kind of loony.

  • Desperation. This is the same fundamentalist BS we see from Islamics and abortion clinic bombers. What they believe is correct, no matter what, with zero tolerance for different viewpoints or beliefs. Poor, brain dead NeoCon loser. She failed to force us all to agree with her agenda. Poor, little failure. Poor, poor little right wing failure.

  • Until now, police were looking for a dyslexic black attacker who carves a perfect backwards letter "B" ... LOL! Turns out, this crazy bitch just did it in her rearview car mirror. She's going to meet some new friends in jail who probably aren't McCain supporters.
