McCain Volunteer Says She Was Mugged, Had 'B' Cut in Her Face A John McCain volunteer says she was robbed at knifepoint Wednesday in Pittsburgh by an attacker who cut a 'B' into her face after noticing a McCain bumper sticker on her car. The Republican presidential nominee has since called the volunteer, 20-year-old Texas resident Ashley Todd, and spoken with her and her family. Todd was working at a nearby phone bank before she was apparently attacked near an ATM machine.

I know that. I see what you are saying. I just wanted to point out my intentions as well. I know that no one is generalized by a group action or idea. I base it on what I see.

Ok- point noted. Just be aware, I consider myself left and I do not accept these types of actions. I also realize that there are lots of unfair attacks being made by both sides not just the right and not just the left. I hope that helps re-instill a little more faith that not everyone who leans left considers the right wing to be insane and violent!

I am not condemning an entire party. I am condemning the media first off. Second off, whoever did this, third, the people who have been complaining ad nauseum about supposed things said here and there.

GS- I do read this blog. I ignore most of the igorant comments (i.e. the ones where ppl accuse others needlessly of inciting hatred). People have a right to condemn one's word's and actions. My problem with your statement is that you condemn an entire political party. If this girl was in fact attacked (and I only say if because of the reports that are now coming out- in fact I did give her the benefit of doubt when I first read the story), the person who attacked her, should be punished and reprehended by both parties. However, I will not sit here and have one side (and I don't care which side it is- repubs/conservatives or dems/liberals) be stereotyped based on that person's actions. There is a lot of wrong done by both sides by indviduals (note- individuals, not the entire party). However, I am glad I made you laugh! We all need to laugh and lighten up a bit more :)

True is right, it's going to be true or it's going to NOT be true, but either way it's sad. I admit that there are some questions raised, but I don't want to believe that anyone is sick enough to do this to THEMSELVES. I realize that could be the case, but until we know for sure I'm withholding judgement. Keep in mind also that it may have just been a RANDOM attack (Still just as vile and wrong) and that she is "playing it up" for the campaign. It's not right, but there are a MILLION possibilities of what actually happened here.

That's interesting to me because I was recently listening to some police officers who readily admitted that they are very jaded because they do get a fair deal of false reports, so they begin to question everything.

Being a fan of the Scarlett letter alone is not an issue, but the fact that she's marked herself with a Scarlett Letter makes me suspicious. I realize that I may come across as being a bit mean spirited, but this makes me angry. My first response to the initial story was anger toward the attacker. I know people who have had their cars keyed because of their campaign stickers and I think it's outrageous to act out in this manner. The police who have questioned her - who know more about this case than any of us are very suspicious, I am just following their lead.

Whoa, whoa whoa, NYf.... Take a step back. You've got to be freakin' kidding me. I can't believe I read that. You wanna know where the anger is coming from? Do you read this blog? There have been countless talk about the gop mobs at rallies, and Palin inciting hate blah blah blah. I really am laughing right now. I can't believe you wrote that. It just shows we see what we want to see.

She could have been lying down or lying about something else. I'm not saying it's not suspicious; I just think some people are awfully quick to pass judgment.

Citizen just posted an update. She had a twitter account as well and supposedly updated her status on there about "lying". I can't pull it up because it keeps saying it is "loading". Like I said in the recent Citizen post about this, that is only circumstantial but it just adds to the suspiciousness of it. Along with the ATM camera not meshing with her story and other things.

(That wasn't directed at you, TS. I know you are just questioning it, not saying for sure that it happened or didn't.)

Look a little more closely at that MySpace page before judging her. The Scarlet Letter was listed as one of many books she likes. (I have that listed on my Facebook. I better take it down in case I ever get attacked.) The dying from a political assassination was a silly quiz she took.

I feel bad for her either way. Either she got mugged and beat up, or she's a sicko who faked it. I have to admit her story seems fishy, but who knows?

It bugs me that crazy people like this go to these lengths to make a Political statement. I can't wait until November 5th.
