Per KDKA, McCain campaign volunteer and College Republican Ashley Todd has admitted that she "confessed to making up a story that a mugger attacked her and cut the letter 'B' in her face after seeing her McCain bumper sticker."
Todd joins such luminaries as Francisco Nava, Phil Parlock and Morton Downey Jr. in the conservative culture-of-corruption Fake Assault Pantheon. And to add just the right twist of schadenfreude, a FOX News VP had suggested this morning that if the assault turned out to be a fake, the McCain campaign is "over."
UPDATE: TPMMuckrakler reports that a source at KDKA has singled out McCain's Pennsylvania communications director for feeding the press an incendiary version of Ashley Todd's "story" before the facts had been nailed down.
