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.

It's a good thing lynching is against the law. Or alot of black men would be dead right now,because of the word of a white woman. Now don't all of you feel really dumb and stupid for going along with this woman's story.How many people have died on the word of women like this?

I'm for Mccain and I love Pittsburgh. This is just an example of really stupid people in the world. There are stupid people everywhere who support all different people so don't say it is because of where shes from or who she supports. I'm sure there are some nutcases like this who support Obama too *cough*cough*ayers*cough*cough* Im just kidding people please don't take this too seriously.
P.S. I'm not talking to anyone particularly so noone get offended please.
