Republican Mass Hysteria in the Age of Obama! How to Protect Yourself.

Taylor Garrett

You may remember back in October of 2008, a month before the Presidential election, when a 20 year old woman named Ashley Todd claimed she had been robbed of $60 when a man became angry when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on the victim's car. The attacker then punched and kicked the victim, before using the knife to scratch the letter "B" into her face, claimed Ms. Todd.

Turned out to be false.

Now another Republican has come forward and claimed that a similar attack occured on him because he is a Republican and because of his association with the the right wing columist Ann Coulter.

Ashley Todd - Stage Name

As you may have heard, Taylor Garrett, the gay Republican cast member from The A-List Dallas, claims he was assaulted on Friday night in Dallas by someone who carved “Fuck Coulter” into the side of his vehicle.

This marks the second time in six weeks Garrett has reported being targeted for his association with conservative commentator Ann Coulter and for being a gay Republican. Last month, Garrett alleged that a rock with a threatening note attached was thrown at the window of his Dallas Design District apartment. Some bloggers have alleged that Garrett falsified the report about the rock as a publicity stunt in advance of the premiere of The A-List Dallas.

And when you think it can get any worse American Idol host and lead singer of 70's rock band Aerosmith Steven Tyler now claims the same thing happened to him.
