About that mutilated McCain campaign worker.... [updated with video goodness]

It's bullshit.

It would be truly horrid if it were true, but it's not.
Police sources tell KDKA that a campaign worker has now 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 [...]

Investigators did say that they received photos from the ATM machine and "the photographs were verified as not being the victim making the transaction."

This afternoon, a Pittsburgh police commander told KDKA Investigator Marty Griffin that Todd confessed to making up the story.
Lying Republicans who smear their opponents are, since the days of Lee Atwater, par for the course.

Here's the problem. The story is out there now and not everyone knows she made it all up. Be sure to enlighten anyone who has heard it.
