McCain Backer Attacked, Mutilated in Pittsburgh

10/23/2008 7:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ashley ToddHere's what went down with the McCain/Palin supporter who was allegedly attacked in Pennsylvania last night.

According to Pittsburgh cops, around 9:30 PM last night, Ashley Todd was robbed after she went to the ATM. The victim says during the robbery, the assailant saw the McCain/Palin sticker on her car and became "enraged." He struck her and knocked her down, and allegedly carved a "B" on her cheek.

The assailant is still at large. Police tell us all they have is a description -- a man, 6'4", with dark skin and dark clothes.

A McCain spokesman confirmed to TMZ Todd volunteered in McCain's Pennsylvania office.

UPDATE: Anthony Pugliese, Pennsylvania state chair of the College Republican National Committee (of which Todd is a member), tells TMZ, Todd is "shaken up" but is doing OK. Prior to the attack, Todd was doing phone banking at one of the McCain offices.

This is just terrible. If people go to youtube and look at Obama's ties to his cousin Odinga in Kenya. He helped him run for President with Change signs. People were killed when he lost..They will see the violence to come. Please vote for McCain. At least the USA will be safe.

I think this story is full of it!
Racism, ignorance is what you supply. Your polls concerning politics always leans to the right.
Shame on you TMZ. McCain is losing the election.
I can see that you will be willing to do anything not to have your Taxes raised.
Your Taxes will be raised, making you pay your fair share.
