Jammie Wearing Fool
UPDATE 10:25 p.m.:
Ace of Spades
If you can claim you were just trafficking in hateful symbols and statements to “raise awareness,” you get off scot free. Even if your hoax winds up tearing up a university over the false allegations and costs tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in investigations.
UPDATE 10:35 p.m.:
In an interview with The Hatchet Monday evening, Marshak said she only drew the final three of six swastikas on her door in an attempt to highlight what she characterized as GW’s inaction. …\
“I wasn’t looking to create this, sort of, insanity,” Marshak said in a phone interview. “I was’t looking to become a media darling. I was just looking for acknowledgment from University that someone drew a swastika on the door.”
