    Pittsburgh Police: McCain Worker Robbed, Attacked

    PITTSBURGH, Pa. (CBS) ― Pittsburgh police are investigating after a volunteer for the Republican campaign says she was attacked by a mugger who became enraged after seeing a John McCain bumper sticker on her car last night.

    According to police, the 20-year-old woman said she was robbed at an ATM at the corner of Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street in the Bloomfield area around 9pm Wednesday after leaving a Republican phone bank.

    The woman told police that the suspect, described only as a dark-skinned African-American man about 6'4", stole $60 from her and became enraged after seeing a bumper sticker supporting Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain on her car.

    The woman said the suspect punched and kicked her before knocking her the ground.

    The McCain camp tells CBS station KDKA-TV that the victim is a 20-year-old Republican from Texas.

    According to a campaign spokesperson, after seeing her bumper sticker supporting McCain, the suspect said, 'Oh you're with McCain, you're with the McCain campaign? I'm going to teach you a lesson.'"

    After repeatedly hitting, kicking and threatening the woman, the McCain camp says the suspect carved a "B" in her cheek for "Barack" Obama.

    According to the police report, the officer confirmed that he "observed the wound on the right side of [her] face.

    The unidentified woman reportedly declined immediate medical attention last night but said she would go to the hospital today.

    The suspect ran off after the attack; but police are hoping that footage from bank surveillance camera may help lead them to the suspect.

    In an official statement the McCain campaign says: "We're shaken up by this. It's sick and disgusting."

    Yes, but he hasn't taken our PDAs away yet. If she'd been carrying, she could have taken another piece of scum out of existence.

    Not the first violent physical attack of an Obama supporter against a McCain supporter and won't be the last. However, I have yet to read about (although it has probably happened) about a McCain supporter in the US attacking an Obama supporter physically.

    ETA: Barack did say in a series of campaign stumps about a week ago that he wanted his follower to "get in people's faces".
    Bob Owens @ Bearing Arms (paraphrased): "These people aren't against violence; they're very much in favor of violence. They're against armed resistance."

    Agreed. That was my first thought when I heard the story. "Why the hell wasn't she carrying?"
