"Politically Motivated" Mutilation - Real or Hoax?

10/23/2008 7:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ashley ToddPittsburgh law enforcement sources tell TMZ they have serious questions about the authenticity of the alleged victim who says she had her face cut by a politically-motivated attacker.

We're told there are several things about the alleged attack that don't add up. A Pittsburgh PD official says they are conducting a "thorough investigation" and have not determined if the alleged attack is real or a hoax. But we're told there is definitely a level of skepticism.

As we reported, the alleged victim claims she went to an ATM and when she turned around, a large dark-skinned man took the money she withdrew. She says when he noticed she had a McCain/Palin bumper sticker on her car, he became enraged, knocked her down and cut a "B" in her face.

We're told the woman refused medical assistance at the scene and said she would go to the hospital the next day.

The investigation continues.

The backwards B reminds me of when Geraldo was attacked and carved up by Nazis.

8 states are now filing lawsuits to see Obama's birth certificate. What is he hiding?! The people will not tolerate a thugocracy!

Look closely at the photo. This is definitely a hoax, as the "B" is backwards. If you were cutting a "B" into someone, the straight edge of the B would be on the left, not reversed as it is on her face.

She carved that "B" in her face while looking in the mirror... which explains why the "B" is backwards.

All of you McCain support are so stupid. I can't believe that you are so ignorant!!!! Ignorance is not bliss people! All of you jerk heads should show your birth certificates, move to Russia and leave this country to the REAL TRUE AMERICANS...I'm sure that you feel pretty upset with what I just said...Now feel the rest of the REAL AMERICANS who don't dwell in the world of dumb republicans who are so far out of touch from the real people of this country. I'm sure that mommy and daddy got you everything you want...GROW UP! Pay taxes, bills, rent, groceries and gas then talk about how great life will be if a republican was in the white house. It won't be good and the republicans who posted on this site are true haters!

southern gal    

my2.5cent makes the important observation: backwards B. Only way to get a backwards letter, if you're doing it to yourself, looking in a mirror. This woman is crazy, dangerously crazy, and should be locked up.
