Fox VP: Hate crime hoax means McCain’s campaign is ‘over'

Since the "attacker" sat on her chest (as she said) to carve the "B", then either he was dyslexic or she's a liar and carved the "B" in a mirror.

The moral of this story for all you corp. media idiots who thinks "Drudge rules", never trust him as a source for anything ever again.



From Think Progress:

Following the Drudge Report’s lead yesterday, news organizations picked up the story of a McCain campaign volunteer in Pittsburgh named Ashley Todd, who said that a black man mugged her, sexually assaulted her, and scratched a “B” into her cheek because she had a McCain bumper sticker on her car. The police quickly pointed out “inconsistencies” in her story. Todd has now confessed that she made up the story. On his blog yesterday, Fox News Executive VP John Moody, who is a Pittsburgh native, wrote that the incident’s credibility was inextricably tied to McCain’s campaign:
[snip] If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.

Yesterday, before Todd had confessed, the McCain campaign put out a statement about the incident, saying, “We’re shaken up by this. It’s sick and disgusting.”

Moment of truth, indeed.

This McCain thing needs to be arrested and charge with trying to incite a riot (at the very least). This race-baiting, which is what it was, will go down and a turning point in how people perceive the rethugican lunatic fringe
