Girl who leveled a harsh allegation against Mrs. Pence’s school made it up


Perhaps you heard about the sixth-grade girl who told a deeply troubling story of three racist white boys attacking her at a Christian school — Immanuel — where the Vice President’s wife teaches art two days a week.

The story received national attention not just because of the attack, but also because the school has a high-profile faculty member, Karen Pence.

NBC News headlined the story, “Three sixth-grade white boys at a Christian school in Virginia where Vice President Mike Pence’s wife works cut a black girl’s hair, calling it ‘nappy’ and her ‘ugly,’ the girl says.”

The interview they conducted was emotional and one big lie.

Even though it had nothing to do with Karen  Pence, NBC News asked her to comment.

Police in Fairfax County, Virginia, also opened an investigation into the incident.

Turns out, it was a hoax. The school said Allen admitted to making up the entire story, according to The Washington Post, as reported by her family.

“We can now confirm that the student who accused three of her classmates of assault has acknowledged that the allegations were false. We’re grateful to the Fairfax County Police Department for their diligent work to investigate these allegations,” Stephen Danis, the principal at Immanuel, said in a note to parents, according to WaPo.

“While we are relieved to hear the truth and bring the events of the past few days to a close, we also feel tremendous pain for the victims and the hurt on both sides of this conflict. We recognize that we now enter what will be a long season of healing.”

Her family has also apologized in a statement.



  1. Who told the girl to do this. Another case off someone whose whole future could have been destroyed for lie. Her parents I hope have told her it was wrong. .. Now do you wonder wHy no one believes the garbage they lie about our President ,and those near him. .I hope she was made to understand what this could have done to these boys futures .

  2. Send them the bill for the police investigation. Do this every time these hoaxes happen and thy will happen a whole lot less.

  3. When I first heard about this story, I knew it was a lie. Because 12 yo boys (black,white, Asian, etc) do not care a flying fig about girls or their hair. Bishop Swan owes Mrs. Pence an apology and needs to learn to keep his mouth shut until all the facts are presented. Lastly, it is a sin to lie, she should be removed from the school permanently.
