Update – McCain Supporter Not Attacked

[Note – scroll down for latest update to this story.]

From Pittsburgh television stations KDKA and WTAE:

Woman Attacked At ATM, Assailant Carves Letter Into Her Face

Woman Robbed, Attacked With Knife At Bloomfield ATM

October 23, 2008

PITTSBURGH — A 20-year-old woman who was robbed at an ATM in Bloomfield was also maimed by her attacker, police said.

Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard tells Channel 4 Action News that the victim was robbed at knifepoint on Wednesday night outside of a Citizens Bank near Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street just before 9 p.m.

Richard said the robber took $60 from the woman, then became angry when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on the victim’s car. The attacker then punched and kicked the victim, before using the knife to scratch the letter “B” into her face, Richard said.

Richard said the woman refused medical treatment after the assault, which happened outside the view of the bank’s surveillance cameras.

The robber is described as a dark-skinned black man, 6 feet 4 inches tall, 200 pounds with a medium build, short black hair and brown eyes. The man was wearing dark colored jeans, a black undershirt and black shoes.

Of course it’s the conservatives who are the ugly thugs, right?

Police: Campaign Worker Admits Making Up Story

A Pittsburgh police commander told KDKA Investigator Marty Griffin that Ashley Todd confessed to making up the story & is facing charges

October 24, 2008

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ― 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.

Authorities, however, declined to release the results of that test.

Investigators did say that they received photos from the ATM machine and “the photographs were verified as not being the victim making the transaction.”

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.  

According to police, investigators working on the interview process detected several inconsistencies in Todd’s story that differed from statements made in the original police report.

Pittsburgh Police Public Information Officer Diane Richard released a statement earlier today, saying: “Because of the inconsistencies in her statements, Ms. Todd was asked to submit to a polygraph examination which she agreed to do.”

No photos of Todd are being released by Pittsburgh Police at this time.

The investigation is continuing as officials determine what charges will be filed.


What is it with kids today?

    Uh oh. The reporter described the attacker in the article as a “dark-skinned black man”.
    That reporter is sure to be fired. After all, to mention that the criminal was anything but white in most news articles is considered racist.

    Of course Chris Mathews and CNN will denounce the victim and start pouring over her tax records, job records and anything else of relevance and expose her to the world as a fraud. Can’t have her exposing Obamabot thugs as violent individuals now can they.

  2. 1sttofight says:

    No video, No medical aid after having a B carved on her face?

    Can you spell ASTROTURFING?

    This has Axelrod written all over it.

  3. Steve says:

    I’m not sure I get your point, 1st.

  4. 1sttofight says:

    Why would a 20 year old woman refuse medical treatment for a disfiguring knife wound to her face?

  5. Consilience says:

    I’m guessing this is FEAR on the part of the victim. Thugs…at some point American men are going to have stand up and stop these savages.

  6. Steve says:

    “Why would a 20 year old woman refuse medical treatment for a disfiguring knife wound to her face?”

    I too find that a little bizarre.

    But I don’t see how Axelrod figures into it.

  7. 1sttofight says:

    He is famous for under the radar posting untruths on as many websites as possible just to get the headline.
    don’t matter if it is later proven to be false.

    The more sites that post this and then it is proven to be false, the sillier they look.

    This is a red herring.

  8. Consilience says:

    SG—does seem queer, but I was emailing with a couple people who said in the more urban areas, there are threatening words directed at people with McCain/Palin paraphernalia. My wife and I are packing heat (legally) just to be safe.

  9. Sharps Rifle says:

    If this is how it is before the election, I dread to think of what’ll happen if Ovomit loses…

    McCain staffer says she was mugged, had ‘B’ cut into face
    Thursday, October 23, 2008
    By Michael A. Fuoco, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    Pittsburgh Police are investigating a report by a campaign staffer for John McCain that she was mugged and the letter B was cut into her face following a robbery in Bloomfield last night.

    Police say the 20-year-old woman, who is from Texas, reported that the attack occurred after she withdrew money from an ATM at Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street.

    She said a man armed with a knife demanded her money. She gave it to him and began walking toward her car, which has McCain stickers.

    Although the robber had moved away from her, he became agitated when he saw her car, punched her in the back of the head, pushed her to the ground and carved a B into her face, she reported.

    Police said the woman declined medical treatment at the scene.

    More details in tomorrow’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

  11. Liberals Demise says:

    He cut a “B” in her face because that is as far as his edge-a-makashun took him. See….he can spell “B”! Now then Mr obama….cut this po’ fo a check!!

  12. Consilience says:

    When the anointed thug is defeated, I hope sincerely that if you have any indications of McCain/Palin support that you have firearms and the guts to use them. Hell, if the violence after a sporting event is a bench-mark, what the hell can we expect if the most-high-anointed-chicago-thug-messiah happens to miss the coronation. I firmly believe there will be brutal violence ala third world—for that’s what obama wants for our nation—as pay-back.

  13. 1sttofight says:

    The main question is, where is this woman today?

    Is she willing to give an interview?
    Why didn’t she seek medical help?

  14. Consilience says:

    Hell, she’s in Pittsburgh—and just wants to get home to Texas. Nice comment—B is pretty early in the alphabet, anything further would have been a challenge.

  15. VMAN says:

    Let’s step back and take a look at the thugs on the left. I saw video the other day of ACORN workers in there red uniforms and red caps. They look like Hilter youth. Who has seen the Nation of Islam and the Black Panthers in there Nazi garb. How about that group of high school student chanting for obama in military fatigues. They call the right fascists and Nazis and the truth is that they are just projecting. Let’s not forget that Nazi stands for the National Socialist Party. Hardly sounds right wing to me

  16. gradstudent says:

    It seems to me that she declined medical treatment “at the scene.” It is quite possible that she would seek medical care. I know I wouldn’t want to be in the media spotlight right after getting mugged–especially when it was politically motivated (and the offender was an acolyte of the “chosen one”).

  17. Consilience says:

    If obama is elected—just stand by. Hell, this guy pals around with domestic terrorists. He will use the DOJ to pursue his political enemies.

  18. jobeth says:

    Fox News just commented on this. Even they avoided mentioning this guy’s race. But they said McCail called this girl. Seems she also manned a McCain phone bank prior to this incident.

  19. Consilience says:

    gradstudent, I’m with you. Her name is already out there. I’m not a conspiracy guy, but I’m afraid there’s going to be serious violence after the election—either celebrations (God forbid) or revenge. I bought a new 45 ACP a few weeks ago, and the gun shop was full of people. The owner told me that after the bailout nonsense the guns are selling big-time.

  20. Consilience says:

    Oh, heaven forbid we mention the perpetrator’s race! That would be insensitive. Lord deliver us from these PC weenies who are afraid to speak the truth. You can bet your bottom that if a white guy beat up a besotted obamamanic race would be front and center. Fox is hedging just in case the anointed thug is elected.

  21. 1sttofight says:

    The letter is carved(written?) backwards, ie mirror image.

    Of course there is always Photoshop.

  22. Colonel1961 says:

    Anyone remember the story of the savages that raped, sexually tortured, maimed, murdered and then set afire the two students at UT a few years back? Didn’t think so. Wasn’t newsworthy…

  23. Consilience says:

    We need to start identifying these animals REGARDLESS of race. Race doesn’t define a savage, behavior does. Just observe the behavior of the anointed thugs associates.

  24. 1sttofight says:

    It is a hate crime to accuse a black person of a crime.

  25. notsoyoungjim says:

    Her picture is up on Drudge. Despicable act–but she looks like she’s strong and can take it.

  26. jobeth says:

    It is a hate crime to accuse a black person of a crime

    1st you are so right.

    He’s not a criminal because he’s black, and I am accuse of being racist because I won’t vote for an idiot who happens to be black.

    Go figure!

  27. Kilmeny says:

    I’m a bit suspicious of this (wouldn’t an attacker carving her face make the B face forward, not backwards as in a mirror?) but it’s a fact that the Obama campaign’s deliberate racial stirring is making things very uncomfortable for McCain supporters. I would not be surprised to hear more stories along these lines.

  28. VMAN says:

    Hate is hate!!! white, brown, black yellow or red. Was a hate crime committed against this young girl? I had a friend when I was a senior in high school and we were close friends. He went away to college and when he came back he wanted nothing to do with me because I was white. I don’t know who he fell in with when away at school but they filled him with hate. A sad situation indeed. Did I mention he was black.

  29. jobeth says:

    I’m sure its only because he is dislexic. (snicker)

  30. DEZ says:

    “I’m a bit suspicious of this (wouldn’t an attacker carving her face make the B face forward, not backwards as in a mirror?)”

    We are all wondering that, But I may inject that she may have been on the ground after being punched and kicked.
    My point is that the B may not be backwards, but upside down.

  31. mrfocus says:

    Well if she’s laying on the ground and the guy is standing at the top of her head then the B would be correct.

  32. sheehanjihad says:

    wouldn’t an attacker carving her face make the B face forward, not backwards as in a mirror?) If the attacker was standing over her from a looking down angle, his “B” would look right to him….like his feet were at the top of her head after he knocked her down for being a conservative racist.

  33. 1sttofight says:

    Good point DEZ, but I still think it was painted on, not carved.

    Where is the blood?

  34. DEZ says:

    3 of us make the same point that fast, wow.

  35. Consilience says:

    Pardon me, but why the hell does it matter the perspective of the “B”? This crime was perpetrated by a supporter of the anointed chicago thug AFTER he saw her bumper sticker—prior to seeing bumper sticker it was a simple armed robbery.

  36. DEZ says:

    “Pardon me, but why the hell does it matter the perspective of the “B”?”

    Because its giving a few people doubts that a crime took place.

  37. 1sttofight says:

    Pardon me, but why the hell does it matter the perspective of the “B”? This crime was perpetrated by a supporter of the anointed chicago thug AFTER he saw her bumper sticker—prior to seeing bumper sticker it was a simple armed robbery.

    Ummmmm… The question as to whether this actually happened is still up in the air as far as I a concerned.

  38. gradstudent says:

    1st- wouldn’t she or medical personnel have washed the blood off?

  39. 1sttofight says:

    Those red lines were drawn on.
    Have you ever been cut on your face?
    You will bleed like a stuck hog, and it will leave a whelp.

  40. Kilmeny says:

    True, y’all, and maybe I’m just a suspicious sort. Or possibly have read too much about people who’ve perpetrated “hate crimes” on themselves for attention.

  41. curvyred says:

    Something doesn’t seem quite right with this story, I smell Axelrod trying to stir up fear with a false report, and then say “see our racist those McCain supporters are” with false reports?

  42. DEZ says:

    We are all the suspicious sort Kilmeny. ;-)
    Glad to see you posting again.

  43. Kilmeny says:

    Thanks DEZ, been working on my degree, some days I have barely enough time to skim SG’s articles.

  44. DEZ says:

    If those marks are real 1st, and I think they are.
    The girl is lucky the guy is too stupid to sharpen a knife, or she would have deep cuts instead of scratches.

  45. notsoyoungjim says:

    “Those red lines were drawn on.
    Have you ever been cut on your face?
    You will bleed like a stuck hog, and it will leave a whelp.”

    If the knife is a dull one it’s not likely to draw any blood. If the skin is not taut it would be quite difficult to draw blood especially if she’s just been beat up and has stopped resisting out of pure fear.

    I find it highly ironic that we need to justify her wounds to satisfy anyone. Obviously the police believed her when they filed the police report.

    As far as the reverse “B” perhaps the assailant was holding her down at the shoulders or neck (victim face up) with one hand (facing her feet) and carving with the other.

    All of this is just speculation–as is any commentary that this is a hoax.

  46. mrfocus says:

    He didn’t use a knife. A rock or a pen. And the police saw her so they would be able to call her out on this.

  47. juffy says:

    Maybe….the “B” was intentionally carved backward so that she would see it correctly every time she looked into the mirror.

  48. Consilience says:

    Given the heighten sensitivity this election year (and this happened yesterday), I’m pretty sure this isn’t a hoax or an Axelrod (sp?) stunt. I’m with notsoyoungjim—and a little concerned that folks who frequent this site believe this to be a hoax. I’m guessing the thug who perpetrated this was so busy doing what thugs do, he did have time to hone his blade to razor perfection—odds are, he used some surplus store crap that never has an edge anyway.

  49. artpa says:

    Dont know about the rest of you, but i have a new car and there is no way i’m going to put a mccain bumper sticker on it… in my city it would last 5 minutes before it was vandalized by molotov cocktail or shot at. My life would be in danger if seen exiting it. About 10 miles from here in the Olney section of Philadelphia there is a murder a day, and a few cop killings a year… there are no mccain signs down there,

  50. Consilience says:

    artpa—that’s the kind of hope and change the Chicago thug messiah brings. All that hope, change and diversity. “Let’s celebrate our differences..” This bastard candidate brings violence to a process that has been peaceful since 1789. Change we can believe in…right. Some people aren’t fit to govern themselves—these besotted nitwit Obama followers are in that category.

  51. 1sttofight says:

    artpa, We don’t put up with that stuff where I live.
    Maybe you should think about moving to Alabama.

  52. Consilience says:

    1sttofight—I’m originally from Troy, Alabama—where someone fooling with private property was just as likely to get his a@# whipped as he was to get shot. Good on you!

  53. artpa says:

    1st, unfortunately here in philly county a white guy found carrying would have the war and peace sized book thrown at them and labeled a right-wing vigilante, for young black males, it’s a slap on the back of the hand, kids will be kids. The buses here even have ads on the back telling you its against the law to sell guns on the street.

  54. Consilience says:

    artpa—Move. Hell, they give guns away in the South :))) Sorry to hear the seat of our Liberty is so closed. God bless you.

  55. pinandpuller says:

    If this was perpetrated by a real guy then perhaps he was a victim of the public school system.

    Picture flipped?

    Was he really trying to carve EIB and ran out of room?

  56. Sharps Rifle says:

    artpa: I’m with you. I have a pickup and a car, and neither has any bumper stickers on it. When I go into town, unfortunately it’s often in a heavily black section, and my old pickup had quite a few bumper stickers on it…some political, some ethnic (Irish and Indian) pride. I could always count on it being vandalized at some point and the cops would do nothing about it. “You were just provoking them with those stickers, Sir.”


    If I can’t hold my opinion without some cretinous lowlife gangbanger damaging my property, then what good is freedom of speech? I’m making it a point to avoid going to town on the 4th, just to not risk getting caught in whatever mayhem results from this election.

    And yes, my .45 will be loaded and ready in case it spreads into the country (doubtful, but why ask for trouble?).

    Brilliant—a Rush supporter! I love it—God knows Chris Matthew and Obernitwit will be looking for excuses

  58. Consilience says:

    Sharps Rifle…. why ask for trouble?———————Because this is America, that’s why. Because Americans aren’t afraid of trouble if we’re right. We have a reasonable expectation of safety. Why the hell should we bow to these semi-literate products of public education? Why should we be silenced? IF we don’t stand up, who will? Get a damned bumper sticker and don’t let the thugs intimidate you. Just take old Smith and Wesson, or Mr. Colt along—-or just give the offenders a good ass whoopin—-Lord knows there are many who need one. STAND UP FOR AMERICA! Don’t let the supporters of the Marxist bastard silence you!!

  59. 1sttofight says:

    As G Gordon Liddy says,
    Had you rather be carried by 6 or judged by 12?

    I will take my chances with the 12.

  60. Consilience says:

    1sttofight—Ditto!!!! It’s simply standing up for what’s right. God knows we’ve been in the supine position for way-too-long. Now’s the time; with this bastard anointed messiah. Keep the faith and don’t be afraid; hell, the worst they can do is kill us, and then we’d be spared the “reign” (if he wins, and I don’t think he will)(I believe this bastard anointed messiah is going to be standing Grant Park Chicago on election eve calling McCain conceding—-or calling out his thugs to do violence—-the latter would not surprise me.)

  61. artpa says:

    Don’t get me wrong, i’m armed to the teeth here in my place, having a gun on your person or in your car in Philly county is not good and a permit to carry is practically impossible. If the violence (election day or not) comes inside my threshold, there will be blood, and i’ll probably be sued anyway knowing this place. As a cop friend once told me “better dead than wounded and make sure they fall inside.”

  62. Consilience says:

    artpa—That’s the spirit! God bless you. Just make sure everything works and don’t be afraid. The bastard thug messiah is counting on a certain amount of fear. Fear not.

  63. Icarus says:

    The reason the B is backwards is obvious… the perp was black!!!! (drum-roll, crash)
    Kidding, kidding!

    But I agree (as it stands) the whole thing sounds…. Queerish
    Need more details!

  64. Consilience says:

    Hell, she’s under 25—she might be a besotted follower of the messiah—-but I’m thinking no. I’d like to see a picture after the “swelling”—which was not apparent in the photo provided.

  65. DEZ says:

    Innovative idea, gather all the McCain/Palin bumper stickers we can find and use them to cover Obama stickers.
    Then sit back and watch the moonbats carve on each other.
    Yes its a bad idea, and, no do not do it, we should not become what we have reason to loathe.
    I will still respect others property as long as they respect mine.
    Still I had fun with the idea for a second or two.

    All kidding aside, the punk that robbed and assaulted this young girl is a poster child for the loony liberal left, they beleive in their souls that no mater what you have, they are entitled to take it by any means possible, they are the most narcissistic introverts the world may ever see.
    They worship their sycophantic leaders as messiahs, they have no concept of right or wrong.
    They have no respect for anyone or anything that will not benefit them personally. the world owes them a living, just ask one.
    Liberals are the despots that would topple the greatest nation to ever adorn our planet, all for their own personal gain, they line up to vote for the free stuff, free health care, free childcare, free housing, free, FREE, FREE.
    Free to liberals simply means one thing, the guys and girls getting out of bed in the morning should pay for them to sleep late.
    Ironic how they have the nerve to call others greedy, but irony is lost completely on these self serving twits.
    The liberals will celebrate this POS, and his crimes.
    I will celebrate when someone gets to throw the switch to fry his ass.

  66. Consilience says:

    DEZ—you are spot on. Until we start frying these bastards—in real-time—it won’t seem real. And I mean using due-process according to the Constitution. But most violent criminals sit in jail on death row until the parents/families are dead/approaching room temperature—and then the “sensitive people” come out, the candle night vigil. No, I’m tired of this automatic BS where a death sentence means 10-20 on death row with a political roll of the dice on whether the sentence is carried out.

    Of course, with the bastard thug messiah—we’ll get lots of “sensitive” jurists on the federal courts, which means more violent criminal NOT paying for their crimes.

    Just another reason to vote against the “messiah”.

  67. DEZ says:

    Consilience, I knew my celebration maybe a decade or two.
    With a little luck though, this punk may get nice stay in prison, a prayer rug and told to put his face on the floor and his ass in the air, that should make him a real popular boy on the cell block.
    Oh, did I ever welcome you to S&L?
    Well I am doing it now.;-)

  68. Consilience says:

    DEZ: Many thanks for the welcome. This is a good site, by and large. We’ve been too easy on these criminals—given them too much time in the pokey before the needle/chair/etc. We need a weapon in the hands of every American and training on proper use. An armed population is a marvelous deterrent to violent crime—and we’re going to need if the anointed thug bastard messiah is elected. Keep the faith!

  69. Zeusshiloh says:

    I guess that however this was done, the didn’t realize that Acorn started with an “A” and not a “B”.

  70. Consilience says:

    Zeusshiloh —————————–Lord, of course, we’re dealing with a vast right wing conspiracy!

  71. Eagle334th says:

    This happened in front of an ATM, right? Where’s the CCTV footage? I heard on FNC that she took the picture herself. The next day, maybe? Black-eyes take a little while to appear. Where’s the picture the police took?

    BS came to mind the minute I saw it on the news.

    Oh, and before any new person on here tries to call me a Lib troll, I’d throw up the same BS flag if it was an Obama backer claiming an ‘M’ was carved into their face.

  72. Steve says:

    This is the website of the young lady in question:

    Ashley Todd | life in the field

  73. The Redneck says:

    As far as I’m aware, “medical treatment at the scene” usually means an ambulance.

    If I was hurt in a crime or an accident, but not badly, then I’d refuse treatment “at the scene” simply because I don’t want to pay $200-500 for an ambulance to drive me to the hospital when I can drive myself.

    I’ve got to agree that it at least seemed credible to the cops, but either way I wouldn’t consider refusing treatment at the scene to be suspicious.

  74. brad says:


    1. What black guy would carve a backwards “B” in someone’s face? –Looks like she did it herself in a mirror, that explains why it is backwards.

    2. The “B” is a pretty nice Hevelica Font B, which asks, “Who would sit there and allow someone to brand them in such a nice fashion?” Most people would resist, therefore, the B would not be so clean and neat, it would look more like a Z.

    3. Why refuse medical treatment?

    4. Where is the video? She was at an ATM right? Well, don’t they have anything to prove any of this happened?

    5. It just sounds made up, like the so-called racist screaming people at the McCain rallies, it sounds like those people were planted there, or the “hate” was made up.

    When the police question, and re-question this woman, her story will change, and it will lead to an embarrassing story of McCain supporters crazy enough to go to such lengths to alter an election. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST! Sorry guys, but she may have been robbed, but the other stuff….I don’t know….

  75. BillK says:

    I hate to say it, but I don’t buy it, either.

    The backwards B is the giveaway, IMHO, and that doesn’t look like it’s really scratched.

    Further, why would a robber at an ATM stick around to analyze her car’s bumper, or even know which car was hers?

    Finally, what Obama supporter wouldn’t have carved an “O?” More obvious and, frankly, faster – a “B” takes too much extra time.

    It wouldn’t surprise me at all if this turns out to be some type of “protest” to show “How easily white McCain supporters will blame Blacks.”

  76. Exeter says:

    Looks like the S&L skeptics won this one – Ashley Todd’s story is coming apart. Michelle Malkin’s got the details and all the relevant links:


  77. Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:

    Late to the party again but I thought BS from the beginning of this also. Even with the dullest knife, flesh will be cut while the adrenaline is pumping during a violent confrontation. There is no way that the “B” was done with a knife unless the blade was turned sideways. And as one of the other posters above stated there is no way that the “B” would have been nearly that neat if it was done during a struggle.

  78. wardmama4 says:

    Look at what the Obama campaign of ‘hope’, ‘change’ and ‘unity’ has created – taking both sides of an attack, wondering if there are going to be riots after the election (no matter who wins), wondering if there is going to be a mass sweep of all who are against Obama policies after the election, fear, serious questions concerning Obama’s associates, unusual rise to power, activist organizations connections, possible illegal campaign donations (after promising to keep to the Public Campaign Financing) he now will not disclose 85% of his ‘contributors’, and we are all well aware that this is compounded by a msm that will not even report, much less research this candidate.

    But when you combine his ‘spread the wealth’ comment with anything out of Biden’s mouth and his hubris of building his stage two weeks before the election – I am going to bet we see those ‘poll’ numbers creep ever closer together in the coming days.

    And for someone who is 100% guaren’-damn-teed (thanks Ms Pelosi) of winning the election – that isn’t a good sign – he should be soundly in the double digits – and it is getting worse every day. Not a good sign for the Master of the Universe wanna-be.

    Obama is a joke – among those who came before (Clinton, Gore, Kerry) he is the worst of the bunch and all Americans – but most especially Democrats should be embarrassed that this loser has been put forth as their candidate. However, it speaks volumes for the DNC as to how badly they think of We The People – that they would put forth such a worthless candidate and expect us to be dazzled by an empty suit.

    Personally I have more intelligence, substance and concern for my Country and the World than that. Which is why I don’t vote Democrat.

    I am afraid this doesn’t pass the smell test, either, but I AM thinking of how Obama told his supporters to go out there and “get in their faces!”

    So earlier this week, I took the wrong FDR off ramp AND WOUND UP DRIVING THROUGH HARLEM. Looking where to turn around, after about 20 blocks or so, my sales guy turns to me & says, “So, do you still think the McCain Bumper Sticker Was A Good Idea?!”

    Now, I did suggest that I stop at the next light, jump out screaming while pointing to the McCain sticker, “HEY! WHO PUT THAT HERE!? D’YOU SEE ‘EM?! THIS IS RIDICKILIS!”

    But I didn’t.

    HOWEVER, yesterday while double parked waiting for my daughter ON THE UPPER EAST SIDE DURING RUSH HOUR…

    I popped the trunk, turned the bass way up & bopped while blasting Mark Levin’s bumper intro.

    Liberals hate it when they’re laughed at.

  81. Reality Bytes says:

    An obvious fake! Only a liberal would write B backwards.

  82. Moonspinner says:

    I must sadly admit I am a little skeptical about this story. I was wondering why a “B”? Why not an “O” for Obama. Or if the assailant carved the B why not also an O. So he would have carved a BO for Barack Obama. On the other hand, many women who are mugged, assaulted do go home first I am sure. They are confused, scared, and even ashamed and want the safety of their home rather than the stares of strangers at a hospital. She did go to the hospital the next day I have read. She does have black eyes that look real or maybe it is just a very good makeup job. But if her eyes are that black, then why aren’t they swollen also? Seems like they would be if there was enough trauma to result in those black eyes. I guess we give her the benefit of the doubt, but I will not be surprised if this story falls apart after investigation.

    You were right 1st, appears to be a red herring.

    Police: McCain volunteer changes ATM attack story
    PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh police say a McCain campaign volunteer who said she was held down by a black man who cut the letter “B” in her face has changed her story.

    Police spokeswoman Diane Richard says investigators gave the 20-year-old woman a lie-detector test and are “looking at some inconsistencies” in her story.

    The student, Ashley Todd, of College Station, Texas, initially said a black man robbed her at knifepoint Wednesday night and then cut her cheek after seeing a McCain sticker on her car.

    Police say bank surveillance footage doesn’t show her at an ATM where she says she was attacked.

    Todd, who is white, now says she was knocked unconscious and doesn’t remember being cut. She now says she only discovered the wound later.

    “Police spokeswoman Diane Richard says investigators gave the 20-year-old woman a lie-detector test and are “looking at some inconsistencies” in her story.”

    Is this standard practice?

    I loved all this weapons talk. I’d like for you all to consider what Guitarist Ted Nugent has posted around his property in Michigan, “Trespassers will be SHOT on site…..Survivers will be SHOT Twice!!”
    Gun control is 1 shot 1 hit

  86. Steve says:

    Note that the article has been updated with word that this girl is reportedly now saying she made it all up.

  87. Consilience says:

    Ok, I’ll eat crow; I thought she was telling the truth.

  88. Steve says:

    FWIW, her purported MySpace page says she is a Ron Paul supporter and features no mention of John McCain:

    MySpace.com – Italian Pajamas – 23 – Female – College Station, Texas

    It also bears this thoughtful comment:

    “Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her cloths off, but its better if you do.”

    Well, Drudge’s credibility is going to take a hit–but I still feel like an idiot.

  90. Consilience says:

    notsoyoungjim————————-Couldn’t disagree more…you did what decent people do, you believed someone who seemed credible. That, sir, is virtue; no need to feel like an idiot—that’s character.

  91. DEZ says:

    Consilience, pass me a plate of that crow!

  92. Consilience says:

    DEZ; what a shock. There are some folks over at Michelle’s blog speculating that she was s plant, but I figure she’s just not bright. Sad when you think about it. I’ve an abiding fear there will be enough trouble on election day to spare—and on this, I hope I’m wrong.

    The thug messiah did tell his people to “get in their faces” (I’m a political junkie, but I can’t remember another candidate using that sort of “street” language when urging his supporters), you’ve got to believe a few people will take him up on the advice and then hide behind the thugs encouragement.

    Weird year—I’m afraid we’re witnessing the dissolution of our Republic. McCain will slow the federal train down—-we’ll still have our hands full, but the thug messiah will accelerate the fed’s efforts. These are desperate times, indeed and we can do better, we’re Americans!

  93. DEZ says:

    I wont speculate on her being a plant, But she is a liar that deserves two more black eyes.

  94. sheehanjihad says:

    just another attention whore to me…..nothing more. A dull life, and a strong need for “look at me everybody!”. she isnt a plant….she is the root.

  95. Icarus says:

    Earlier I wrote: “But I agree (as it stands) the whole thing sounds…. Queerish
    Need more details! ”

    Plenty of details now!
    Sounded odd …and contrived… now it’s confirmed that it was.
    At least this proves that myself and others may be hardcore conservatives but are really fair and balanced.

    I did learn about a few others things from this exercise though… ???

  96. 1sttofight says:

    I agree with you SJ, she was just craving some attention. She got it allright, just not the kind she was hoping for. What is the penalty for filling a False Police Report?

  97. sheehanjihad says:

    The penalty is being forced to listen to Nancy Pelosi answer 900 number phone calls with Harry Reid on the other end and Barney Frank’s voice in the background asking where he put his shorts……..

    I saw a full body pic of her on Fox, she was wearing a Tenn Vols shirt, THAT explains a lot to me.

  101. brad says:


    I was right all along. Come on guys, don’t be such a knee-jerk liberal willing to believe everything. THINK! Who robs someone and hangs around long enough to carve an almost perfect “B” in the side of someone’s face? And look at the area? Not exactly a back alley to perform such a thing.

    Anyway, it doesn’t matter to me, because the Republicans and their supporters get a free lifetime pass in my book, because they didn’t spend 20 years listening and hanging around a church filled with raging bigots—then claim they had no idea what was going on. A Harvard lawyer could put 2 and 2 together very quickly, I thought Obama was one of those…..

  102. 1sttofight says:

    This gal is in some serious need of professional help.
