Todd, who is white, now says she was knocked unconscious and doesn't remember being cut. She now says she only discovered the wound later. "

She also stated that the guy sat on top of her chest to cut her. If she was unconscious then how did she know that?

Sounded fishy from the start. A guy who’s trying to get away from a robbery sees her bumper sticker and returns to attack her? Unlikely.

Yeah. She probably cut up her own face, hoping it would become a big story.

Good grief.

Didn’t see that one coming /s. I’ll bet she’s got pictures of David Hassellhoff all over her wall. Or maybe Obama. Maybe she’s mad at him because he doesn’t read her twitters. PSYCHO!

As I recall from another story I saw this AM, she said she and her friend had trouble locating the correct ATM.

“who is white

Race was integral to this story, and she’s the one who made it so by claiming her attacker was black and that he was reacting to her McCain bumper sticker.

"Receipt?"

Ohhhh, good point. If she took out the $60 (which she claims she did) a receipt (or even her bank account) would show date/time/location.

Have the police gotten around to checking the bank records? At the very least, they’ll know where the card was used and when.

It is fortunate for this young woman that she probably was not really attacked - a real knife wound would have been very ugly, and this looks more like a scratch from a nail file. However, it is unfortunate for our McCain that she is a *probably* a nutcase willing to fabricate a story about a racially/politically motivated attack, because the media will only focus on this story, and not on the real attacks that ARE taking place out there.

I’d *almost* be willing to say that she’s a MoveOn.org plant - she’s been allegedly involved with Ron Paul’s campaign, and he was heavily (albeit unwittingly) underwritten by MoveOn in their unsuccessful version of Operation Chaos. That being said, if this young woman’s story turns out to be untrue (as it is beginning to appear it is) then we should throughly vet her to see if she is working for MoveOn.org in an attempt to undermine McCain...

Definately a hoax from the beginning.

Crimini --- just what the McCain campaign didn't need - a 20 year old hoaxster making racially tainted, unfounded charges of violence.

She's cost him a lot of votes with this stunt.

The “B” looks like it was carved upside down, consistent with a “mugger” holding her face up and carving it looking at her down from the top of her head.

It still does not pass the smell test.

(Maybe the mugger was a Boston Red Sox fan, upset that they lost to the Tampa Rays. Hence the carved “B”) /sarc

Whatever votes she cost him will be made up with the votes McCain gains with the thousands of people that heard the story and believe it did or COULD happen...This story and the resulting oversaturation by the media defending Obama will only serve to further paint him as the “black candidate”...

Doesn't the police report say Right cheek? That means the photo being circulated may have been her photo she took by pointing the camera at a mirror.

Makes as much sense as any of the other supposition going on...

Ah yes, those Sox fans are so ... so ... so radical! This kid is either making this up as a publicity stunt she hoped woul dget her attention like Joe the Plumber is getting, or she was put up to this. With the media floating in Obama septic tank, the public will never know the truth at this point.

Yes it would.

Has anyone else mentioned this?

I would think the police would have asked for one in order to pinpoint the location.

If there is no receipt, then her bank would have all of that information, because it appears on the bank statement.

The bank statement would name time, date and ATM number/location.

Bank video might be from the wrong ATM?

Also, inner city police could be obamatrons and doing everything in their power to discredit her.

For the sake of all, I hope it’s true.

If this really happened it is a shame, and I feel bad for her.

If this does turn out to be fake, it will make our side look as loony as they say we are.

Bank records can confirm whether or not she withdrew money.

No, her right cheek would be on the left side of the photo. In anatomy, left and right are from the patient’s perspective. The “B” is backwards.

I seem to recall that the "victim" was using a mobile communication device of some kind to do texting while she was on the road. The communication company can tell from the signals received approximately where she was located while she was transmitting a signal. This evidence may also indicate that she was not where she was claiming to be.

Didn't anybody learn anything from the O.J. slow speed pursuit?

Only if someone else was holding the camera and pointing it right at her. If she was pointing the camera at a mirror, then snapping the photo, it'd reverse...

Dunno... I'm withholding judgment until I hear more. Unlike pretty much everyone else, for or against...

From her MySpace page:

she is a RON PAUL fan, says one of her favorite books is the "Scarlet Letter", and after taking a political quiz gets the answer:

How Will You Die?

MY RESULT:Political Assassination

Your obsession with power will eventually be the end of you when you’re shot down by members of your own cabinet.

Rough way to go. We recommend writing up a good will, and shredding any documents that might paint you as a shady character.

If that's her MySpace page, take note of this interesting quote at the top:

"Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her cloths off, but its better if you do."

She enjoys lying, and she doesn't sound like the type of voter who would support McCain/Palin. (Plus, her spelling and grammar skills are lacking.) ;-) She comes across more like MoveOn.org than a Republican.
