The weird “B” and Twitter activity had a lot of us suspecting that this would come. She didn’t hold out long:

Pittsburgh police said a 20-year-old woman who originally said she was robbed and assaulted at knifepoint in Bloomfield because of her political views made the story up.

Ashley Todd — who has a backward letter “B” scratched into her right cheek — confessed to faking the story and will be charged with filing a false report, Assistant Police Chief Maurita Bryant said at a news conference Friday.

Todd, of College Station, Texas, admitted there was no robbery or attacker and said she had prior mental health problems, according to Bryant.

We’re looking at some sad and stupid decision making by Ashley. Her actions won’t help her cause, can’t help but fuel more racial tension, and the impact will be felt the rest of her life. Hopefully, she’ll get the help she obviously needs.

Update:
She’s catching a whole bunch of heat, from liberals and conservatives alike, on Twitter. You can watch the outrage scroll by on Summize.com.

    By the time its all over, the country is going to witness a lot more attacks by Whites on Blacks (Verbally, physically or Otherwise)than Blacks on Whites. I thought the Republican Party was the “Moral” party.

    In any event, I can´t see any brilliant mind in the Republican Party making mince of his/her brains to think this one out.

    I´d rather this is a “plant” of the Democrats in order to generate this opinion and introduce the racial issue in the campaign, something we can “ALL” do without
