Matt Drudge in his classic journalistic nose for the news, may have jumped on a story before the facts came out. Shocking!!
Front page of Drudge Report states:
MCCAIN VOLUNTEER 'ATTACKED AND MUTILATED' IN PITTSBURGH...
Unbelievably, Matt Drudge in an effort to sensationalize and politicise an attack of a women in Pittsburgh, may have gone after a story that didn't happen.Courtesy of Ben Smith of Politico:
Skepticism in Pittsburgh
The police are skeptical:
Police planned to administer a polygraph test to Ashley Todd, 20, because her statements about the attack conflict with evidence from the Citizens Bank ATM where she claims the incident occurred, police said.

What does the backward letter B carved in her face mean? Could the attacker be dyslexic or ....used a mirror in which the B was actually done backwards? Why not an O? There was no sighting of the attack in the ATM camera...so in the words of the great Matt Drudge...developing.
If this indeed was a real incident, I hope they do catch the criminal and prosecute him to the fullest. I just thought it was so Drudge to jump to the conclusion about a story like this. Matt never lets the facts get in the way of a right wing story!
