Yesterday I posted a story entitled "Robber Carves 'B' on Face of McCain Campaign Worker," which recounted how a mugger had carved the initial B on the face of a 20-year old, female McCain campaign worker, after seeing a McCain bumper sticker on the victim's car. Pittsburg police now report that the story, which had been reported by WTAE TV ThePittsburgChannel.com, was a hoax, made up by the campaign worker. She has been charged with making a false report to police.
I have removed the original story from this blog. I apologize to our readers.
