Please limit discussion in this area to local and state politics.

Kyle Wood "retracted the story to allow the campaign he worked for to get back to campaigning instead for dealing with the story." (see article comments)

I'm surprised someone here didn't think of that first! The big question: who sent Kyle those texts??

Obviously! Because saying you faked the attack is clearly less of a distraction than actually having been attacked.

Right?

Thanks for the link. From the Channel3000 story:

According to court documents obtained by WISC-TV, five days after the alleged attack while police were questioning inconsistencies in his story, Wood told police, "You're right -- I did it to myself."

For one of his injuries, to his eye and forehead, Wood told police he used a rock from an aquarium, one that looked most like a fist, placed it in a sock and struck himself with it, according to the criminal complaint.

The complaint said Wood told police he hit his own head against a mirror, causing injuries to his forehead and eye.

The complaint also said Wood used a guitar string to create marks around his neck.


You have to wonder what was going through the guy's head when he was doing all that to himself.

Something along the lines of "Heh heh heh--that'll show them!"
