Both campaigns reached out to this woman and offered sympathy. So stop making this a judgment issue about McCain. The loose cannon crap is ridiculous.PITTSBURGH -- A 20-year-old woman who was robbed at an ATM in Bloomfield was also maimed by her attacker, apparently because of her political views, Pittsburgh police said.According to WTAE's news exchange partners at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Ashley Todd, of College Station, Texas, was using an ATM at Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street just before 9 p.m. Wednesday when a man approached her and put a knife to her throat.Police spokeswoman Diane Richard said the robber took $60 from Todd, then became angry when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on the victim's car. The attacker then punched and kicked the victim, before using the knife to scratch the letter "B" into her face, Richard said.
The McCain campaign really latched onto this particular case. Both McCain and Palin called the woman and her family, I guess to offer their sympathy for the big-bad-obama supporters attacking her. Now, though, it looks like the woman is lying. The police want her to take a lie detector test before pursuing the case further because there are inconsistencies in her story. So, once again McCain is using poor judgment by not vetting before going into something whole hog. He's a loose cannon. Erratic. As crazy as his followers.
