PITTSBURGH -- A 20-year-old woman who was robbed at an ATM in Bloomfield was also maimed by her attacker, police said.
Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard tells Channel 4 Action News that the victim was robbed at knifepoint on Wednesday night outside of a Citizens Bank near Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street just before 9 p.m.

Richard said the robber took $60 from the woman, then became angry when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on the victim's car. The attacker then punched and kicked the victim, before using the knife to scratch the letter "B" into her face, Richard said.

I actually prevented my daughter from putting a McCain sticker on her car because I thought her car would get keyed. Now, I am really glad I didn't let her.

Update: Fox News is reporting that she is a McCain volunteer and that McCain has actually called her to express his condolences on the attack.

Update: On second thought, I hope we can all act sane during this election. Police are now reporting she made the story up. Like I said in the comments, nothing surprises me anymore. Shame on her.
