Report: Mugger Cuts "B" into Face of McCain Staffer

I thought it was infantile in 2001 when the departing Clintonistas glued the Ws to the White House keyboards.

But the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting something far worse.

Pittsburgh Police are investigating a report by a McCain-Palin campaign staffer who says that she was robbed by a knife-wielding attacker who cut the letter B into her face.

Police say that the 20-year-old Texan reported that the attack occurred after she withdrew money from an ATM, when a man armed with a knife demanded her money. She complied and began walking toward her car, which sports McCain stickers.

Although the mugger had moved away from her, he reportedly became agitated when he saw her car, punched her in the back of the head, pushed her to the ground, and carved a B into her face.

We all know that Sen. Obama wants to misuse the power of the sword to spread the wealth around, but this report raises serious concerns about how far his fellow plunderers are willing to go.

UPDATE: Hot Air has a picture showing the B on the face of the young woman, who is now being identified as Ashley Todd.

Sickos on both sides. Like any religion, race, political atmosphere or heart felt topic throughout history, there will always be hardcore extremists.

While this doesn't suggest Obama supporters are automatically prone to violence, it also doesn't mention anything wrong that a McCain supporter had done.

Why would you even associate by claiming there are sickos on both sides? Is there an incident performed by a McCain supporter we should be aware of?

Cecilia Sherrard said...

The yelling at the campaign rallies? "Kill him!" "Terrorist" etc. What do you call that?

By the way, this woman never went to the hospital and the ATM camera didn't even catch it on tape.

Why Obama was even mentioned because of some crazed mugger's actions is beyond me.

Also interesting, the B in the photo is:

a) carved backwards

b) pretty perfect for someone who had to carve onto the face of a struggling woman.

So, nice try, but Robert Downey Jr. already knows that it doesn't work unless you get it right. Now, if he had used a branding iron? The "B" would be that perfect. But a knife? Um, no.

I've also never seen two black eyes so perfectly bruised without any redness of the eyes themselves. The backwards B really is suspicious considering it was ruled out she was standing in front of a mirror.

And even if it were true, How do we know the guys name wasn't Bob?

Why does this go right to Obama?? (Which is what most call him)

Cecilia, in case you hadn't heard, there is absolutely no evidence to back up the claim that someone yelled "kill him" at a McCain/Paalin rally. NONE. Just like there were no people eating babies in NOLA following hurrican Katrina. Not that the media would ever issue a retraction...

Google it. Total hoax.

Incredible! These comments run from blaming "extremists" ("Sickos on both sides"), to irrelevant, deliberate distractions (unsubstantiated "yelling at campaign rallies"), to casting aspersions on the victim herself ("..perfectly bruised...really is suspicious...").

It's the Moonbat Trifecta!

By the way, I don't think anyone is suggesting that this behavior is in any way typical of a voter for Mr. Obama.

OTOH, if not for the circumstances, it would be amusing to see how criminals are becoming politically active.

Chuck said...

This "kill him" remark was investigated by the FBI and found to have no corroboration whatsoever. It's more likely that it's just another case of a far left reporter faking a news report. Any bets that they worked for CBS?

The Richmond Democrat said...

She has confessed to making this story up.

Interesting to see how this red herring farce revealed the true colors of those who jumped on it. Next question: to what degree was the hoax orchestrated - like Joe/Sam the non/plumber - by the McSame-Flailin' campaign

Cecilia Sherrard said...

Leslie - "how far his fellow plunderers are willing to go."

Tessies Dad - "to casting aspersions on the victim herself"

I think the victim is the accused. "Obama" and his supporters. It's amazing how fast bloggers and starters jumped on this. That's how false rumors start and exactly why the republican campaign is currently failing.

I don't know how anyone who is a rational thinker believed this story to begin with. Some will believe whatever is brought their way I guess.

Good day and good luck!
