    McCain supporter robbed, assaulted

    A knife-wielding man robbed a McCain-Palin campaign volunteer and etched a “B” into her face after he saw a McCain bumper sticker on the woman’s car, Pittsburgh police said.

    Ashley Todd, 20, of College Station, Texas, was using an ATM at Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street in Bloomfield just before 9 p.m. Wednesday when a man approached her, put a knife to her throat and demanded $60, police said.

    Todd handed the man $60 she had in her pocket and stepped away from him, investigators said. The man then noticed the bumper sticker on the woman's car, which was parked in front of the ATM. The man became very angry, made comments to Todd about John McCain and punched her in the back of the head, knocking her to the ground, police said.

    "He continued to kick and punch her repeatedly and said he would teach her a lesson for supporting John McCain," said police Chief Nate Harper.

    The man then carved the "B" into Todd's right cheek. Todd, who isn't familiar with the area, drove to a friend's house nearby and told her friend she wasn't sure of the exact location where the robbery took place but remembered a green sign above the ATM. The friend called police and the officer met them on Cypress Street in Bloomfield, police said.

    Todd's friend offered to drive her back in the direction she came from to look at ATMs until she found the right one, police said. A police officer followed until Todd pointed out a Citizens Bank ATM at Liberty and Pearl, police said.

    She declined medical treatment at the scene and said she would go to a hospital today.

    Todd declined to comment.

    "She is a volunteer for the McCain-Palin campaign," said campaign spokesman Peter Feldman. "Sen. McCain has reached out to her via telephone and has spoken to her and her family,” as has McCain’s running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Feldman said. “Out of respect for her privacy we're not going to comment further."

    Democrat Barack Obama's campaign released a statement saying: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the young woman for her to make a speedy recovery, and we hope that the person who perpetrated this crime is swiftly apprehended and brought to justice."

    Police described the suspect as black, about 6-foot-4, and said he was wearing dark-colored jeans and a black undershirt.

    The ATM has a security camera and investigators are trying to watch the video, police said.

    First, let me say that, I am voting for John McCain and Sarah Palin, and I AM PROUD OF IT.

    NOW, let me also say that this story smells. So before ANY of the liberal pimps start with the BS that this was a put up job by the John McCain camp, I think this girl was looking to get in the news. Everybody wants to be on Youtube.

    I don't know how smart she is but she could even be working with the obama people. If it turns out that this did NOT happen, the liberal pimps will all jump in and say that John Mccain put her up to it.

    The letter on her face looks BACKWARDS. If you look at someones face and draw the letter B on THEIR right side, the vertical line in the letter would be on the left. Closer to the ear. The two rounded parts of the letter would be nearer the nose. Look at the pic.

    She doesn't look old enough to remember Morton Downey. Maybe the person that thought this one up is. Some people will do anything to get on TV.

    Richard, you are correct. The position of the letter does matter. Look at the pic again. Does the letter look like this one?

    The letter looks backward on the girls face in the pic on the news.

    You never thought of that drawing huh bill(freeziggy).?

    Went into the bathroom and tried to draw it on your own face didn't you? Does it look the same as the girls face in the pic?

    Used lipstick didn't you? You should have known better. I can't help you with what will take it off. Jeeeeez bill(freeziggy), does somebody have to take care of you ALL the time?

    Don't wory about it. When you go to work tomorrow, just tell the guys that you put that B on your cheek to show your support for obama.

    I don't know if she just wanted to make the news or what, but the Bloomfield section of Pittsburgh has certainly gone down in the past few years.
    Most Pittsburghers would now be doing banking at night in that area. Bulge.

    I agree Bulge. I remember when Bloomfield was a rally nice part of town. We would go over to Dell's and order their pizza. We were their last month and had their lasagna. I have to admit though it's the best around!..Zig

    Well, try thinking outside of the box.

    If she was knocked ot the ground and beaten, he could have been standing over her, with her head at his feet. Then the way he carved the 'B' would make sense. I've seen worse.

    I've visited my sister in Pittsburgh. Why the hell anyone would stay there on their own accord is beyond me. It's a prison made of buildings, high priced beer, and flesh.

    "You guys, especially JBrooks are so f'n stupid. I'm going to stick around and stick it to him and his kind all the way to the end of the elections."

    It SHOULD read:

    "I LIED, I know I promised that I wasn't going to post anymore , but forget that promise. I'm going to stick around and stick it to him and his kind all the way t the end of the elections"

    Your "kind" does a lot of that don't they

    Kinda like obama himself aren't you. Promise something, get called on it, and then change it.

    I am ignoring this issue. I think it's very possible this is an attempt at recognition by a disturbed individual.

    If it was actually done by an Obama supporter, they're not very competent.

    Looks like she may have staged/faked it.

    1. Glad it is/was not the case. I also hope we never get to this type of violence on our fellow man for a different belief.

    2. Still sad that this young lady has issues to try to perpetrate (sp?) this whole thing. What she didn't realize is that now SHE is in BIG trouble with the law.
