Cops Hook Up McCain "Attack" Victim

10/24/2008 12:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The woman who claims a big, bad Barack supporter allegedly used her face as a human Etch A Sketch has taken a lie detector test ... and Pittsburgh cops are still skeptical about her story.

The woman claims she was at an ATM earlier in the week when a big dude noticed she had a McCain/Palin bumper sticker on her car. She says he attacked her and carved the letter "B" in her cheek.

As we first reported, cops had serious questions about her story. Now we've learned they conducted a polygraph. The results have not been disclosed, but a PD official says her department is "still dealing with inconsistencies with her statements."

Here's what we're wondering -- why did she decline to go the the hospital when it happened, saying she'd get around to it another day?

Smells like salmon.

26. 77. I found this snippet at a news site, it was published about 30 minutes ago

"Now police say that evidence from the ATM that she reportedly visited did not match her account. And now she has changed her story, admitting that he assailant did not see a McCain bumper sticker on her assault, and adding to he account a sexual assault and losing consciousness. "

The entire story is at http://www.editorandpublisher.com/eandp/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003877727

Her story is falling apart

Just watch - she'll be on the McCain campaign bus with Joe the Plumber, McCain and Sarah Palin - they can call it "The Fake, Fraud, and Liar's tour." Just another example of the desperation of the Repubs to do anything BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO LOSE!!!

Wow IT doesn't swell or shows signs of red eyes from eye concusions.
IT's skin is tough. Scrape IT with a knife and it doesn't cut or scab. Just a smear of red coloring.
My guess is that IT gets beat up a lot.
I think IT should allow me to pop her other eye so she matches for Halloween.
I think she's the Anti-Christ. I've read about this in the Bible. We should shave IT's hair and look for the 666.

If this was a black woman attacked by a white McCain supporter there would be no questioning her story. This is blatant racism on the part of the media and the cops.

Consistently, since world war two, Democratic administrations have averaged higher economic growth, higher personal income growth, and lower unemployment than Republicans. All of them. Every time. No matter whether you measure with lag times or not.

To Poster # 21 (Pee): you're right, the letter "B" does look backwards if it is written upside down. To do this, the "big black man" would have to have thrown her down, and some how managed to be angled on the right side of her body with his entire body UPBOVE HER HEAD. Think about it...someone writing a PERFECT letter UPSIDE DOWN on the side of someone's face would have to be ABOVE the head level which would leave her LEGS and ARMS FREE. How difficult would it be to write a PERFECT "B" upside down on this woman's face with her LEGS AND ARMS wailing frantically in the air and against the pavement and against the attacker as he's obviously not using his body weight to hold her down ? my guess ? near IMPOSSIBLE ! On a side note: having had a black eye or two in my life, there is not only SWELLING AND BRUISING, but the whites of the eyes would have many, many broken blood vessels. I'm just sayin...

I am a McCain supporter and I will admit that this young woman's story is hogwash. Don't assume that all Republicans are like this loon. Michelle Malkin is as conservative as you can get and she blew the whistle on this story. Besides, what about your bogus "Kill Him" story? You liberals are such hypocrites.

"fyi," GREAT ARTICLE. i wish i could post it in times square or make it interrupt everybody's television shows. because it is true, the media is LYING, and more than half the country is lapping it up. it's despicable. OPEN YOUR EYES PEOPLE.

oh, and about the story. yeah this chick's probably lying. but what does that have anything to do with the mccain campaign or republicans as a whole? and if it is true, it shouldn't affect obama negatively either. i don't believe this particular story, but believe me i live in a heavily populated capital city where most likely less than 10% of residents will ever vote republican, and threats from obama supporters ARE REAL. it's not obama himself, it's his followers. you will get your windows smashed, your tires slashed. that's why i don't even have any stickers or buttons or t shirts this year. it's pretty scary.

This is too sad. Regardless of political agenda, this woman's a fraud - plain and simple. Morton Downey Jr. must be laughing in his grave, thinking someone else was stupid enough to pull the same stunt he did - and think anyone would believe it.

Pittsburghers never believed her from the beginning. Bloomfield is a part of town that is alive all day and night because there is lots to do there, someone would have heard or saw something..she should have said blogged "Picked the wrong neighborhood to blame!!"
