That’s an oldie but a goodie.
I’m referring, of course, to the 20 year old McCain-Palin volunteer, Ashley Todd of College Station, TX, who claimed yesterday that she was attacked at Pittsburg, PA ATM by a 6’4″ black man — on account of her political leanings.
The story was pushed by Drudge, but a lot of media outlets began to question the veracity of Todd’s story, especially when the ATM records didn’t match her story. After being given a polygraph by the Pittsburgh police, Todd allegedly confessed to making up the assault. (Also after McCain, Palin, and the Obama campaign all called her to apologize for the incident).
Apparently, Todd has lied to authorities in the past. This makes my blood curdle. She needs help.
