Police: McCain volunteer made up robbery story


PITTSBURGH (AP) – “A John McCain campaign volunteer admitted Friday she made up a story of being robbed, pinned to the ground and having the letter “B” scratched on her face by a black man in a politically inspired attack, police said.

“On her third day of questioning, Ashley Todd, a 20-year-old college student from College Station, Texas, “just opened up and said she wanted to tell the truth,” said Maurita Bryant, assistant chief of the police investigations division.

“Todd could provide no explanation for why she invented the story, police said. The woman told investigators she believes she cut the “B” onto her own cheek, but did not provide an explanation of how or why.

“Police said the woman reported suffering from “mental problems” in the past, and that they do not believe anyone put her up to the act.

“Dressed in an orange hooded sweatshirt, Todd left police headquarters in handcuffs late Friday on her way to court, where police said she was to be charged with making a false report to police.”

The last 30 seconds are for you Ray… lol!

A Brand New Me!!!

since posting “not in your obama shirt” and adding an official obama “change we can believe in” magnet to my car, i have been changed! well… i’ve been convicted to… been forced to… act right!
i can’t yell out my car window in anger with my obama magnet on my car
i can’t get in the fast lane and purposely slow to 50 mph, then slooooowly sip my mocha so the rear driver can see
i can’t hold my car horn for more than 3 seconds at the idiot… errr… fellow citizen who cut me off
i can’t take up two parking spaces and make someone else park three rows away cause i’m to lazy to straighten up
all of these things would bring shame to the obama magnet that i so proudly paid my $5 for! it’s a brand new me!!!! 🙂
