On the Subject of Flaming Trousers

From KDKA CBS Channel 2, Pittsburgh: Police: Campaign Volunteer Lied, Injured Self
Ashley Todd told investigators today she "just wanted to tell the truth" -- and was not robbed or attacked
Todd, 20, is now facing charges for filing a false report to police

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ― Police say a campaign volunteer 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; now she's facing charges.

At a news conference this afternoon, officials said they believe that Ashley Todd's injuries were self-inflicted.

Todd, 20, of Texas, is now facing charges for filing a false report to police.
So let me see if I've got this right. A McShame supporter claims a "dark-skinned African-American man" mugged her, then beat her for having a McSame sticker on her car. She claims this happened right in front of an ATM, despite the fact that the video doesn't show anything like that (you'd think she'd realize that ATMs are video-surveilled). She also claims that this mugger carved a B into her cheek, supposedly to make her think of Obama. (Am I the only one thinking this sounds like something out of South Park?)

Now she admits that she's a lying sack of shit, despite nobody really believing her anyhow. And, thanks to her filing of a false police report, she's facing charges.

Hmm... a white woman is suddenly attacked, blames a scary black man, then admits she was lying and is the real criminal. Sounds familiar.
