Yep, she made it up. From KDKA Pittsburgh:
A Pittsburgh police commander says a volunteer for the McCain campaign who reported being robbed and attacked near a bank ATM in Bloomfield has confessed to making up the story. Police say charges will be filed. More details to follow.
Note to would-be hoaxers: if you’re gonna try to pull something like this off, make sure that your photographic evidence is at least believable enough to fool someone who’s taken a theatrical makeup class.
Well done. Now you’ll never get hired for any job anywhere ever. Congratulations, your life is over. Schaaaadenfreude…..
