(CNN) - A Texas woman who told Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, police she was assaulted at an ATM by a man angered by a John McCain bumper sticker on her car admitted Friday she made up the report, the assistant police chief said Friday.
Just a pathetic trick from republican party trying to scare people.
These people are crazy! Is it not pathetic enough that their candidate lies so much, but now the supporters are completely fabricating attacks to imply that Obama supporters beat up Republican White Women?!?! Wow. So sad.
HO/W MANY "PLANTS" WILL THE REPUBLICAN PARTY/ JOHN MCCAIN MAKE TO GET HIM CLOSER/WIN???
THIS SMEELS FISHY JUST LIKE THE WOMAN AT MCCAIN'S RALLY THAT CALLED BARACK AN ARAB?
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, LET THE RIGHT MAN WIN!
nice. Real nice. What's she going to tell her kids when this story is immortalized on Wiki? Rhetorical question.
Of course she was lying.....did anyone believe her ????
McCain and his followers are rabid, desperate, and crazy.
The republicans have gone NUTS!!! And I was a republican for 40 years BUT after the last 8 years of complete insanity, I've donated to and voted for Obama/Biden!!!
I KNEW IT!
I took the picture that was widely disseminated in the media, and had front page posting on the Fox website, and flipped it.
The "B" was backwards if you were looking at her face, but if she had been looking in a mirror it was correctly oriented. I suspected that she had indeed been mugged, but that she added the "B" and the political aspects of her account after the fact.
CNN – you could have done better than this little blurb.
Can Fox news please shut up about this now.
Or is there some conspiracy to cover up the truth? lol
Hope she has to do community service for years for pulling a stunt like this.
Must be one of those 6 pack guys.... doesn't realize that looking in the mirrow would put the letter B on backwards..... that is desperate.. for attention...
The story was obviously bogus from the start. Who carves a backward B on someone's face, other than that person looking in a mirror and carving it herself. That McCain feel for such a transparent hoax and actually called this person demonstrates how desparate he is for a hook. Pathetic young woman; pathetic old man. Sad in all respects.
...just taking the lead from her Party's ticket...made-up accusations are nothing new there...
That is pathetic, I bet she was paid by the McShame campaign to say it in the first place.
INDIANA FOR OBAMA 08!
Ooops I get the point...another GOP's disciple grasping on straws....lol
Not a surprise
Oh, gosh, THAT'S a surprise.
For those who mistakenly think CNN is biased against Obama, they were pretty quick in getting this up (as they should have been).
Desparate, disturbing, and sad!
Not at all surprising, of course, she was lying...she's probably a republican!
6'4, dark-skinned Black man... is that her fantasy?!
This election is making people go insane.
THIS JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE THE REPUGBLICANS ARE. DESPERATE TIMES CALLS FOR DESPERATE MEASURES. HOW PITIFUL. AM SO SORRY FOR THIS WOMAN, SHE NEEDS HELP.
I am not surprised. We live in an age where 15 minutes of fame is sought after by all sorts of people with all sorts of issues – from "Joe the Plumbe"r to "Woman with Bumper Sticker". It doesn't scare me that they seek the spot light in such odd ways, but it does frighten me that they might be registered to vote.
All you can do is shake your head sadly.
Her 15 minutes are up. Prosecute her to the fullest extent of the law. She is a disgrace.
