(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.
She was probably hired by the McCain campaign to destruct voters from the real issue facing Americans.
More republican lies.
Interesting tactic. Was it supposed to drive people into the McCain camp? All it may have done is give voters a clearer view of some of his supporters.
What are the details behind this? Another website is reporting it's a McCain campaign worker. I had my doubts about this story when I first heard about it on CNN.
This woman needs help and send her to some mental ward for evaluation. If she is stable she gets charge. If this is somethng like Joe the Plumber who is now an instant celebrity, and blaming Obama... this is dirty pool... When I heard this last night I thought Mmm,another McCain stunt... Remeber Joe The Plumber. Police are not that dumb, she lied...
Now another stunt flying back into his face...
I guess Fox News and the New York Post can stop airing/printing her picture every five seconds.
She should be charged with making a false report and whatever else they can charge her with.
Y was this woman trying to blame an imaginary african american for
nothing. This should not be happening, unfortunately, many african
americans have fallen victim to such lies, such as false rapes and so on.
Such people are a disgrace to human dignity!!
What exactly was the purpose of that?
Her name is Ashely Todd a McCain volunteer who tried to invoke race in its worst form. CNN where's the full story?
Oh my! Now the crazy Repugs are cutting themselves and using their racist idiologies in an attempt to back it up. This is one of the reasons McCain is losing – no one wants to be connected to many of these idiots who support him.
I knew it.....
The real story is the man that was shot 3 times for wearing an Obama Shirt.....now that is the truth
I hope that everyone who said the racist and deragatory comments on the blogs about the "supposed attacker" will apologize to Barack Obama and their supporters. Just like the Susan Smith story.....
McCain and Palin showed poor judgment in calling this woman before they knew the facts.
I already knew when the story broke yesterday.
Another example of GOP lies. Yes I am linking her to McCain and Bush.
This republican desperation is getting to be a little sickening. Anything to distract from the issues concerning our nation. And she is from Texas, a state where most folks just don't tell lies. 🙂
PLEASE get out and vote!!!
Suprise, Suprise, everything that has anything to do with the horrible McCain campaign is a lie. It must be the "trickle-down effect"
Come on CNN you can do a bigger retraction than that. You didn't even mention that she is the woman with the 'B' on her face.
Unbelievable. Just one more example of what republicans will do to gain attention. I hope this young lady learns a valuable lesson.
thot so! another distraction that gets into the news before being "Vetted"!
Sheesh, what WON'T , the McCain campaign followers and the Campaign itself do to try and win the election.
This lady is a scumbag...and a liar, gee I think I see a trend here!!
OBAMA/BIDEN 08! 12!
CLINTON 16! 20!
THE TIME IS NOW!! GET OUT AND VOTE!! DO NOT BE SILENCED!!
WHAT THE EFFF"… ANOTHER MCCAIN STUNTS… THIS IS UNREAL!
I EMAILED THE STORY TO SO MANY OF MY FRIENDS WHO ARE OBAMA SUPPORTERS AND SO AM I…
We all agreed that was horrible and who did this should be punished to the fulliest.
McCain and Palin called this girl earlier today to express their sympathy.
I'M DONE WITH THE MCCAIN/PALIN STUNTS…THEY ARE ALL LIARS AND CAN'T BE TRUSTED!
THE ELECTIONS CAN'T COME SOON ENOUGH FOR ME!
hope she gets jail time
Republicans lie?! Who knew... shocker!!
She works for the McCain campaign...of course she lied.
