There’s no “B” is “hoax”

Police confirm mugging story is a hoax.

Update by Pitbull: I wrote last night that I hoped this was not a hoax, but in the end Michelle Malkin’s instincts proved correct once again. This kind of behavior is so despicable and vile, whether it comes from the left or from our side, whether it’s the story of the Duke Lacrosse players being falsely accused of rape, or this sad, misguided idiot who probably thought the publicity would help McCain. My fervent wish is that Ashley get prosecuted for whatever local crime she committed when she filed a false police report.
