Weird! Troubled College Station Woman Makes Up Story about Getting B Carved in Face

24 October 2008 at 1:41:07 PM

I missed out on this weird story of race-baiting yesterday. A woman from College Station said she was working in NY as a field rep for College Republicans, and that she was at an ATM getting out money when she was robbed. Not only robbed but she said that because the robber saw she had  a John McCain bumper sticker that he punched her in the back of the head, knocked her down and carved a B on her face.

So... turns out she was LYING. No idea why. Except that she appears to be a liar anyway. From the Bryan-College Station KBTX.

Police say they did not take the photo of Ashley Todd that is gaining internet notoriety. The photo depicts a 20-something female with bruises under her eyes, and a red "B" on the right side of her face.


Pittsburgh Police say Todd refused medical treatment. A MySpace page linked to a 23-year-old Ashley Todd of College Station says "lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off."

So she confessed. It's all a hoax. From KDKA Pittsburgh

Investigators did say that they received photos from the ATM machine and "the photographs were verified as not being the victim making the transaction."

This afternoon, a Pittsburgh police commander told KDKA Investigator Marty Griffin that Todd confessed to making up the story.

The commander added that Todd will face charges; but police have not commented on what those charges will be.   

I could make an Aggie joke here but it's not funny tthat this lying Republican would use race baiting to try to garner sympathy for McCain.

Just a wee bit more

Todd, who is white, told police she was attacked by a 6-foot-4 black man Wednesday night. She initially told investigators she was attempting to use a bank branch 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 said she gave him $60 and he walked away.

Todd claimed that the man then spotted a John McCain bumpersticker on her car, grew angry, knocked her down and said: "You are going to be a Barack supporter.''

She claimed he sat on her chest, pinned her hands and scratched the B, backwards, on her face with a dull knife. The story started falling apart when police detected inconsistencies in the story and administered a lie detector test. The backward B also seemed like a tip-off, too - a mirror-job, perhaps?

"They just started talking to her and she just opened up and said she wanted to tell the truth," Bryant said. "We have robbers here in Pittsburgh, but they don't generally mutilate someone's face like that. They just take the money and run."

P.S. From the Executive VP of Fox News

If Ms. Todd’s allegations are proven accurate, some voters may revisit their support for Senator  Obama, not because they are racists (with due respect to Rep. John Murtha), but because they suddenly feel they do not know enough about the Democratic nominee.

If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.

Well, There ya go.

They may not charge the woman because the police believe she probably has mental issues.   Yeah.

P.P.S. Seems that the McCain campaign was pushing the story to local television stations before the story was verified.

P.P.P.S.One more link from The Nation Personally, I think she did something stupid, like walk into a door and then, talking with her girlfriend, decided to make up a story about it.
