“Attacked” McCain Volunteer Admits to Lying about Incident


Police sources tell KDKA that a campaign worker 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.


This afternoon, a Pittsburgh police commander told KDKA Investigator Marty Griffin that Todd confessed to making up the story.

The commander added that Todd will face charges; but police have not commented on what those charges will be.

I wonder if the right-wing freak-out over this story will end, or if will they just make up something else to try to scare voters?

Todd is reprehensible, but probably is a good poster child for the GOP mindset in this campaign.

  1. Now, this is complete speculation on my part. I think the reason that it happened was out of desperation because of the prospect that someone (who in her mind) is not “one of us” winning the election. Either that or she has something going on her life that she felt the need to do this.
