A white woman in Staten Island, New York made false claims that a black woman she didn’t know sprayed her in the face with sulfuric acid — only to recant and admit she sprayed herself.

Inside Edition reported that Lizzie Dunn, a resident of the outer borough, claimed she was attacked earlier in the week at her bus stop by a black woman in her 40’s to whom she denied cigarettes and money.

With her face burning from the acid, she stumbled into a deli near the stop, causing a major panic inside the establishment and in the neighborhood. Soon after, local news outlets picked up the story about the acid-spraying stranger before Dunn recanted.

Police told the New York Daily News that the Staten Island woman “has a history of self-harm,” and her deception was revealed after they began pressing her for more details on her attack claims.

Dunn “suffered second-degree burns on the left side of her face and scalp,” the report noted. It remains unclear whether or not police will charge her with filing a false police report.

Trump teases he may not have a peaceful transfer of power if he loses

Published

President Donald Trump was aghast when he was asked in the presidential debates if he would agree to a peaceful transfer of power.

The moment in the debate came when he dodged the question for weeks, refusing to agree to the long-standing tradition of presidents handing over the reins to the next leader.

"Well, we'll have to see what happens," Trump told reporters during a White House news conference. "You know that."

After weeks of bad press about it, Trump said he would agree to it.

"They spied heavily on my campaign and they tried to take down a duly elected sitting president, and then they talk about 'will you accept a peaceful transfer?' And the answer is, yes, I will, but I want it to be an honest election and so does everybody else," Trump said, adding, "When I see thousands of ballots dumped in a garbage can and they happen to have my name on it, I'm not happy about it."

One Pennsylvania polling place fell under a full out attack on those standing in line to vote and trying to cast a ballot on Saturday.

In a Twitter thread, Behavioral Economist Alex Imas explained that while he was casting his ballot on the outskirts of Philadelphia County, PA Saturday, a parade of semis and other cars surrounded the polling place, laying on their horns.

"I arrived just as polling place opened. Short line. Thought I'd be in and out in 20 minutes tops. Even w/ this short line, it took 2+ hours," he explained.

"Then the next Semi followed, then the 3rd," he continued. "A motorcade of semis, jeeps, and a few sedans drove down the road. All honking. All flying Trump 2020 flags. With people yelling out the window. This motorcade snaked around the polling place the entire time I was there (2 hrs)."

Trump gives 9/11 first responders back the $3.3 million he took from health fund: GOP Congressman

Published

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told Rep. Peter King (R-NY) announced that the 9/11 first responders would get the $3.3 million back that President Donald Trump stole from the program that helped them with medical treatments.

Those at the Twin Towers site in the days following the terrorist attacks breathed in a series of toxic gasses and asbestosis, leading them to have a slew of health problems years later. A fund was set up to ensure that those heroes were always taken care of for the rest of their lives as they suffered through their final years.

“It’s a great victory for really deserving people,” King told the New York Daily News Saturday. "I mean this just never should have happened, but we fought hard, we got it done."
