McCain Campaign Worker Hoax

That McCain campaign worker who claimed she'd been assaulted by "a 6-foot-4 black man Wednesday night"? The one who said, oddly, that her assailant had carved a perfect backward 'B' on her cheek, as if using a mirror?

Turns out, the campaign worker made the whole thing up. She mutilated herself.

She's now been charged with filing a false police report. Police also are considering a psychiatric referral. Fox News exec John Moody may need one of those, too.
Before the hoax was exposed, he was predicting, "If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting."
