McCain Mug Victim's Blog Postings
Pre-attack, McCain volunteer blogged from 'wrong side of pittsburgh'
OCTOBER 23--Shortly before a John McCain campaign volunteer was reportedly robbed at knifepoint and had a 'B' carved in her face after her assailant noticed that her car carried a McCain bumper sticker, the woman blogged last night that she was 'Stubbornly searching for a bank of america to avoid ATM fees' and had somehow ended up 'on the wrong side of pittsburgh.'
Ashley Todd, a 20-year-old Texas college student, told cops that she was robbed of $60 by a 6' 4' black man who weighed about 200 pounds. Todd claimed that when her assailant noticed the McCain sticker on her vehicle, he punched her in the head and carved the letter on her right cheek (a battered Todd can be seen at right).
Shortly before the reported 9 PM attack, Todd updated her Twitter page with a post noting that she was, 'Stubbornly searching for a bank of america to avoid ATM fees.' Soon after, she blogged, 'Pretty sure I'm on the wrong side of pittsburgh.' Three hours after that update, Todd wrote, 'Oh the blog I will be making soon...Its been a rough night.'
A screen grab of Todd's Twitter page--which was linked from her page on a College Republican National Committee web site--can be found here. At about 6 PM (est) tonight, Todd's Twitter page became protected and was no longer publicly available. (1 page)
