(CNN) -- A Pennsylvania woman told police she was attacked at an ATM in Pittsburgh by a robber who became angry when he saw a John McCain bumper sticker on her car, a spokeswoman for the Pittsburgh Police Department said Thursday.
Police cannot confirm whether a man attacked this woman because she had a McCain sticker on her car.

Police cannot confirm whether a man attacked this woman because she had a McCain sticker on her car.

Public Information Officer Diane Richard said police cannot substantiate her story, however, and the investigation is ongoing.

Richard said the 20-year-old told investigators a man approached her Wednesday night at an ATM in the city's East End, put a blade to her neck and demanded money.

She said she gave him $60 and stepped away from him, Richard said.

She further stated the man "punched her in the back of the head, knocking her to the ground, and he continued to punch and kick her while threatening to teach her a lesson for being a McCain supporter," according to a police statement. [...]


What's the big deal? The crook was only putting into practice Obama's "Spread the wealth" philosophy. Hey... the IRS has guns and badges. Maybe he is in training to become an IRS agent.

What's the deal with the backwards "B"? Criminals are not very bright, I guess.

It sounds like a crime of opportunity. Get her money, then express your political views with fists. She did this wrong. What she should have done was THROW the money then RUN AWAY SCREAMING in the opposite direction.

That was my initial thought before ever seeing this article. It just seemed wrong somehow.

Police: Campaign Volunteer Lied, Injured Self

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

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ― Police say a campaign volunteer 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.

At a news conference this afternoon, offiicals said they believe the woman's injuries were self-inflicted.

Ashley Todd, 20, is now facing charges for filing a false report to police. [...]

The B is backwards because when you are looking in a mirror, carving a B into your face, it will look as if it's going in the right direction.

What has more than likely happened here is that she has:
A) Gotten into a fight with a boyfriend and is trying to cover it up or
B) Is seeking attention

My fear is that people will immediately seek justice on all shiny-toed Africans because this young white girl has said she's been abused. Now, I could be completely and totally wrong on this, but I doubt it.

And, I'm not discounting this because I support Obama, I'm saying this because I support the truth. Think about this...could you successfully carve a perfect backwards B into someones face? For it to be as perfect as it is, she would have had to stay perfectly still. No screaming, no clawing, no thrashing...nothing. Can you imagine? If someone tried to carve a letter into your face..wouldn't you fight? I sure as hell would.

I admit, the backwards "B" was very suspicious. I immediately thought of Morton Downey Jr..

I am sincerely hoping that the McCain campaign does not politicize this incident. It would come back to bite them in the butt HEAVILY if proved wrong before the election. Instead of losing by a few percentage, it will be a loss by a double digit or more.

Exactly. Since he and Palin have both already spoken to her, who knows what they have said in the time that has lapsed. I'm hoping they were smart enough to keep it quiet until more facts emerged.

When I saw the "B", I thought of Tawana Brawley. She had backwards writing on her as well.
