PITTSBURGH (AP) - A former John McCain campaign volunteer has
been arraigned on charges she falsely reporting that a Barack Obama
supporter robbed her and scratched a "B" on her cheek when he saw
her McCain bumper sticker in Pittsburgh.

Twenty-one-year-old Ashley Todd, of College Station, Texas, has
completed her first interview to enter a probation program for
first-time offenders under which her record can be expunged.

Because she is trying to enter the program, she didn't enter a
plea at her arraignment Wednesday in Allegheny County Court. A
judge must decide if she will be accepted into the program at a
hearing May 22.

Authorities say Todd claimed she was attacked in late October,
then admitted making the story up. She was found in need of mental
health counseling.
