Campaign Worker Todd Lied About Attack

The girl all over the news and blogs of all kind that claimed a black man attacked her outside of an ATM and then carved a “B” in her face made up the whole scenario. Ashley Todd lied. All I can say is that the lovely and honorable Michelle Malkin was right on this issue and I apologize for questioning her instincts on this case. I do however stand by my position that the Pittsburgh Police needed to fully investigate the alleged attack and Kudo’s to them for doing a great job! They found the real culprit in this case and it was Ahsley Todd.

Over at KDKA they have this report on it…

Police: Campaign Volunteer Lied, Injured Self
Ashley Todd told investigators today she "just wanted to tell the truth" -- and was neither robbed, nor attacked

Todd, 20, is now facing charges for filing a false report to police

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; now she's facing charges.

At a news conference this afternoon, officials said they believe that Ashley Todd's injuries were self-inflicted.

Todd, 20, of Texas, is now facing charges for filing a false report to police.

Todd initially told police that she was robbed at an ATM in Bloomfield and that the suspect began 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.

Investigators asked Todd to return to the police station today for more questioning and to help them release a composite sketch of the suspect.

When she did, police say she admitted that she made the whole thing up and that it snowballed out of control.

Why did Ashley Todd make this attack up? Did she think this attack would motivate people to vote for McCain? Did she think this whole thing out before lying about this attack? Did she think out the consequences if her story was proven false by the police? Did she think about the racist side to her false accusation against black people? An imagined attacker had to be black? Why? Why couldn’t it have been a white guy?

Ashley Todd makes me sick to my stomach. When she began this charade her intention was clear on race baiting and somehow firing up hatred and discrimination against black people to support her candidate, John McCain. In the long run she has put a dark spotlight on her candidate for President. It leads you to ask how many other McCain campaign supporters are willing to commit a crime to try and damage the voters faith in Barack Obama? I’ll let the police handle the incidents as they have occurred and allow them to report the truth behind the crimes.

Gotta love Julia Roberts BJ!

I don't know what Ashley Todd was thinking but whatever it was, it was based in poor logic. Did she think she would not be caught? It doesn't make any sense to me and you are right, she needs help. What normal person would scar there face for life like this? Scary if you ask me.

I'm guessing we will see the ACORN post as soon as you write it Paulie and post it on your site. I'll be glad to link to it as an opposing opinion...:)

you won't be seeing at..voter fraud is as wrong as filing false police reports..yet I have yet to hear any condemnation of it..

Interesting that we have not seen ACORN in Worcester doing a voter registration for our disenfranchised..yah think it is because Mass is already in the bag for Obama? The taxpayer funded organization only seems to be in states where it is close....
