A campaign worker who claimed she was the victim of a politically-motivated attack in which she was beaten, kicked and cut, now admits that she made the whole story up.Of course, the whole "scary black guy" theme is still there, too.
According to Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard, Ashley Todd, 20, told investigators today that she 'was not robbed and there was no 6'4" black male attacker.'
Todd initially told police that she was robbed at an ATM in Bloomfield Wednesday night and that the suspect began beating her after seeing a John McCain bumper sticker on her car.
Todd claimed that the mugger even cut a backwards letter 'B' in her check.
Back when the incident was fresh and being pushed as an example of how wild the Obama supporters are, the Executive VP of none other than Fox News wrote:
If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.From his blog to voters' ears.
