CBS4 in Denver, Colo., also retweeted at least one message from the hacked “60 Minutes” account, claiming that President Obama is “shamelessly in bed with Al-Qaeda” and linking to Lyndon LaRouche’s political action committee.
LOL LYNDON LAROUCHE apparently has sway outside of small liberal art college campuses & your town's resident political headcase. @60minutes
