McCain Supporter Ashley Todd Made Up Story About Being Attacked

The blogsphere was abuzz with a story that a McCain supporter was attacked by a black man because she, well, supported Senator John McCain for President.  A photo got out and went international that had Ms. Todd with a black eye and a kind of red "B" branded into her right cheek.  

Even as it went out, some expressed skepticism, of all and unexpectedly, the clumsily right-wing blogger Michelle Malkin called it early:

I’ve reported on the great lengths that warped attention-seekers have gone to in perpetrating fake hate crimes, including beating themselves up, carving swastikas on their dorm room doors and walls, locking themselves in bathroom stalls, and burning down their own houses.
Which is why I’m not jumping up and down with outrage over Drudge-promoted story of a McCain volunteer claiming to have been attacked by a black man whom she accused of carving a “B” in her face after spotting her McCain bumper sticker.
She refused medical treatment after reporting the incident to police. Why on earth would she do that?

And yep, she made it up.  She said she was attached at an ATM; cameras didn't pick up her image at the ATM.  The "B" on her face -- as you can tell -- is backward, as if someone (her?) stamped it on her face in the mirror.  

Here's a general rule, folks.  Anytime a woman, and more specifically a European American woman claims that she's been attacked by a Black man and that incident is tied to a major event such that it would give her a lot of attention, your best counter-action is to disbelieve the story until a lot of credible evidence comes in.  

Why?  Simple.  She elected to drag negative images of Black men into her claim.  That's done so much -- seriously -- that it in itself should be a crime.  I think Todd believed she would get more attention by saying that and of course the police reacted to her cries for justice.  

Now they're pissed and she's being charged with making a false police report -- and maybe more.   Not a good situation for this 20-year old woman. Which begs the question: she's just 20; what kind of parents and friends does Todd have in Texas that would cause her to want to point a false finger at Black men?

That's the unanswered question.
