It turns out that the girl who was “attacked” for her McCain bumper sticker made it up. I have to admit, I bought into it until I saw the first picture after I posted yesterday; there’s no way a knife would have left such shallow scratches.
Police sources tell KDKA that a campaign worker has now confessed to making up a story that a mugger attacked her and cut the letter “B” in her face after seeing her McCain bumper sticker.
What a bizarre thing to do. Usually women who make these things up are college students or college professors. I’m glad the nation can breathe a big sigh of relief in the certainty that Obama’s supporters won’t be inclined to act up if he should lose next month.
