Behind the Ashley Todd hoax

Over at the American Spectator blog, I’ve got a brief report based on an interview with a source who couldn’t speak for attribution:

There was “never any inkling” that Todd was dishonest or emotionally unstable, the source explained in a telephone interview. Todd reportedly told police that she has had prior mental health issues, but nobody at College Republicans — for whom Todd was one of about 50 volunteers working in this year’s campaign — was aware of that background.

Nor were College Republicans aware that Todd had been kicked out of a Ron Paul group in Texas. I’m thinking that would have been a deal-breaker because — let’s be honest — if you’re too crazy for the Paulistas, you’re just too damned crazy.
