Ashley Todd Confesses to Making Up Story of Attack

Update: Todd Confesses to Making Up Story of Attack

A Pittsburgh police commander told a Pittsburgh investigative reporter that Todd confessed to making up the story of the politically motivated attack.

Investigators said the photos from the ATM machine and "the photographs were verified as not being the victim making the transaction." Investigators continued, "Because of the inconsistencies in her statements, Ms. Todd was asked to submit to a polygraph examination which she agreed to do." Todd will face charges, but it's unclear what they are at this time.

Did anyone else see the video she posted about how this janitor (who, you guessed it, matched her description) tore down her posters because they weren't approved?

Couldn't she be just a little crazy with no morals? And I do find it kind of hard to believe that this task wasn't a least a little bit politically motivated.

I don't know. Personally I'd be more inclined to just go with batshit crazy if this were the only thing she'd done. This seems more like she started out telling little lies, non-crazy lies, and kept basically getting away with it (or not having serious consequences) and so she kept doing it. For example, I somehow got on the McCain email list, and one of the first emails I got was an invitation to make phone calls for the campaign from home. You didn't have to go to an office, just go to their website and they'd give you names and phone numbers to call. And it crossed my mind that I could log in and either not call those people or call them and encourage them to vote for Obama or call them and be rude. I didn't, because that's super shady and unethical, it's wrong. Ashley Todd, I think, would have made a different decision, were she me. But I don't think making fake calls is crazy, just really sketchy. I don't think Ashley Todd is crazy, she just has no morals.

I don't know, it still sounds to me like "I'm crazy, and this is just one way I've found to get attention."

Well that's at least two other times she lied in relation to a political campaign. She's obviously just waaaay too wrapped up in it. (I was going to make a joke about any McCain supporters missing from Citizen Sugar since Wednesday night, but I'm afraid it would taken more as a crack against conservatives than how I would mean it as a crack against the insanity of Citizen Sugar generally.)

Does it?

Agreed. But it makes her "this wasn't politically motivated, I'm just crazy" line harder to swallow.

Wow, that's an even less believable story. Seriously, nobody cares if you support Ron Paul. Most people just ask "Who's Ron Paul?". What a nut.

Apparently, she's done something similar before:
In March, Ms. Todd was asked to leave a grass-roots group of Ron Paul supporters in Brazos County, Texas, group leader Dustan Costine said. He said Ms. Todd posed as a supporter of former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and called the local Republican committee seeking information about its campaign strategies. "She would call the opposing campaign and pretend she was on their campaign to get information," Mr. Costine said last night. "We had to remove her because of the tactics she displayed. After that we had nothing to do with her." About a month earlier, he said, Ms. Todd sent an e-mail to the Ron Paul group saying her tires were slashed and that campaign paraphernalia had been stolen from her car because she supported Mr. Paul. "She's the type of person who wants to be recognized," Mr. Costine said.

Jumping in late here. To me, clearly, she's mentally ill. Self-mutilating herself, and making up that hare-brain story?? This woman is unwell.

"If she's going to get help, she should get it with her own resources." Em, I absolutely agree. I think she's wasted enough government time and money.

It's kind of sad that someone chose the election to, well, basically ruin her life. She put her name out there attached to this story, and...well, now she's kinda screwed, isn't she? I also don't care if she gets help. Call me insensitive, but I don't care. I've heard stories about people coming back from Desert Storm and Iraq who weren't able to receive proper disability and adequate counseling...those people need more help from the government. If she's going to get help, she should get it with her own resources.
