As reported on q13fox.com:
KIRKLAND, Wash. — A woman who claimed in a Facebook post that she was a victim of a sexual assault and that Kirkland Police responded but did not investigate, made it all up.
Police say the woman, who they did not identify, admitted she fabricated the entire event. She told police she posted the false claim because she was “distraught over the recent election.”
No charges have been filed.
Made up stories of hate crimes and attacks on women have run rampant in the news and social media in the week since Trump’s election victory. Some of the false report filers have been charged by police.
