Scamma Lamma Dingdong

A McCain campaign volunteer who reported that a tall black man robbed her and then cut a "B" onto her cheek after seeing a McCain bumper sticker on her car has been given a polygraph test because of "inconsistencies" in her story, police said.

Among other things, police said photos and bank card information from an automated teller machine where the college student claimed she was robbed do not show her using the machine at the time, police said.

Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard wouldn't release the polygraph results, but said, "we're still looking at some inconsistencies" in the woman's story.

Police said the student, Ashley Todd, of College Station, Texas, who is white, told them she was attacked by a 6-foot-4 black man Wednesday night.

Richard said police have not ruled out that the woman was attacked as she claimed, and said inconsistencies deal primarily with how she described the attack.

"We're just trying to judge the validity of some of the information we received from her," Richard said. "We understand when you are under duress that sometimes you can't recollect things. We're just looking at all the angles."

Among the differences in her accounts are whether she lost consciousness, whether she remembers handing over money and how the man assaulted her, police said.

The report of the attack Thursday prompted the Republican presidential candidate and his running mate, Sarah Palin, to call Todd expressing their concern. Barack Obama's campaign also issued a statement wishing Todd well and hoping the attacker would be swiftly brought to justice.

The Associated Press could not immediately locate Todd or her family.

Ethan Eilon, executive director of the College Republican National Committee, told reporters that Todd worked in New York for several months before moving to Pennsylvania two weeks ago to continue working for the group.

Eilon declined to comment on the investigation Friday or to help The Associated Press contact Todd. In a follow-up e-mail, Eilon said, "We think this girl has endured enough and that this is going to be something for her and her family to work through."

Richard, the police spokeswoman, said police have pictures of the victim and her injuries, but are not releasing them. She said they are "more or less" consistent with a picture that has surfaced on the Internet that show a woman with a black eye and a red backward "B" that looks like a welt or scrape on her right cheek.

"It's not like her cheek was carved out," Richard said. "It's more like a scrape or a scratch."

In her initial account, Richard said, Todd attempted to use the ATM when the man approached her from behind, put a knife with a 4- to 5-inch blade to her throat and demanded money. She told police she handed the assailant $60 and walked away.

Todd told investigators that she suspected the man then noticed a John McCain sticker on her car, became angry and punched her in the back of the head, knocking her to the ground and telling her "you are going to be a Barack supporter," police said in a statement.

She said he continued to punch and kick her while threatening "to teach her a lesson for being a McCain supporter," police said. She said he then sat on her chest, pinned her hands down with his knees and scratched a backward letter "B" into her face using what she believed to be a dull knife.

The woman told police she didn't seek medical attention, but instead went to a friend's apartment nearby and called police about 45 minutes later.

Police have reinterviewed Todd at least once since her initial statement, Richard said.

In the subsequent discussions with investigators, according to the police statement, Todd said she was accosted as she approached the bank and fled her attacker, fell to the ground and the assailant began beating and fondling her.

Police Cmdr. Larry Ross, who is in charge of the police precinct where the attack was first reported, said Todd's story has continued to change.

"I guess she elaborated more when she went down to the bureau headquarters. She added other things to it that we didn't have at first, that she didn't tell the initial officer," Ross said."

The backwards "B" should have been their first clue.

I am kind of surprised that the imaginary black guy didn't also not rape her while he was not writing the backwards letter "B" on her face.

I imagine she asked herself "Over the top?" and actually thought it might be.

BTW: I was going to post on this earlier today. I followed the link given on the picture, which is 'Sarahsarmy dot blogspot'. On the blog is a "fake" prediction that Barack will win the presidency only to be assassinated in the Oval Office in January.

Nice fucking people.

It makes me sick how many fucking liars tell the cops that a black man (or men) did it.
I wish a well known and respected researcher would correlate ignorance and racism in a way that would tie them intrinsically together forever.
And I wish some legislator would make giving false crime reports a hate crime when Black people or other minorities are named as assailants.

bigsis said...

This stupid fuck obviously etched her own ugly racist face in the mirror not realizing the B would come out backwards.

She's a good example of the 25% backing Bush and the Palin/McCain ticket. Small in numbers, large in lunacy. I think when Obama wins, on November 5th the racists will come out of the woodwork with this kind of hate mongering bullshit.

karenzipdrive said...

She is a stupid fuck. And where is she from? College Station, the stupid fuck capital of Texas.
I'll bet the cops will find plenty of suspects. I'd like to punch her in the other eye myself.

HelenWheels said...

jess wundrun: Sadly, later on she added that she was sexually assaulted. Just to add authenticity, I guess. That was just before she admitted none of this happened.

What a freak. However, I'm not surprised because the neocons really do draw the certifiably insane.

HelenWheels said...

Truly, this was the Susan Smith excuse all over again (she's the one who killed her kids and blamed THAT shit on a black man).

HelenWheels said...

I knew it the second I read it that it was a hoax (my comment thread about TWeety slaying Pfotenhauer has it all). The fact that there was no puffiness to her eyes and the whole thing about a mugger taking the time out to be enraged that she's a McCain supporter was so fucking stupid that I realized, yup, combined with a backwards B, this girl is no rocket scientist. And that's the sort of idiotic story a mouth-breather like this would come up with.

FranIAm said...

This is unreal.

McCain has had a shitty day-

Charles Fried.
William Weld.

Hey, Joe the Plumber is single--maybe these two lunatic GOP-plants can hook up.

Keith Olbermann is having a field day on her dumb ass.

karenzipdrive said...

Wow, I just saw this honky liar perp-walked and guess what?
She must have washed off the charcoal briquet she smeared around her eye.
No more shiner.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE put her into a cell with angry chicks who watch the news.
Would that be too much to ask?

Anonymous said...

She the poster child for what McCain/Palin has wrought.

Dusty said...

The backwards B did clue me in from the beginning. She did it herself in a mirror was my thought.

nonnie9999 said...

i've had it! enough is enough! it's time to fight fire with fire. tomorrow, i am going to call the cops and tell them i was assaulted at the drive-thru of a jack-in-the-box by joe the plumber, and he sucked my face with a plunger! makeup won't cover the fucking circles he left on my face!

Dusty said...

LMFAO Nonnie! ;p

HelenWheels said...


LOL x 10 @ nonnie, plunger-face!

nonnie9999 said...

i'm changing my name. please call me nonnie the plunger face from now on. thank you.

HelenWheels said...

Did it make your nose longer and your lips fuller? And your eyes bulgier?

nonnie9999 said...

laugh if you want. just look what the butt-crack bastard did to me! i'm traumatized!

HelenWheels said...

LOL!! First of all, nonnie, I responded on my blog to this... craaaazy.

So i had to delete it. But what I said was, it looks like someone was all over your mug w/3 tiny plungers! LOL!!!

FYI: word verification on blogger has run out of nonsense words. They are becoming actual words. The one I got now is "hones". That's a real word!!! I only had hints before...

Distributorcap said...

nonnie --- you are too much LOL

this is Tawana Brawley without the feces and garbage bag

Nonnie- If you need a witness to testify on your behalf, I saw the whole thing go down in a Vision I had last night.

The "B" wasn't the most revealing clue. It was the Black Eye that looked like it was a week old.

Last time I got a black eye, coincidentally during one of my Visions, I vaguely remember Swelling.

It has something to do with the broken blood vessels.

nonnie9999 said...

thank you, fairlane. that will come in handy when i am looking for a publisher for my book about what i suffered at the hands and plunger of joe the plumber. i am hoping it will be in print before he runs for congress. ;-)
