Web sites of 43 U.S. House members hacked, including McCollum’s

U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum was one of 43 House members who had their Web sites hacked last night.

The Uptake reports that the sites were vandalized with profanity and anti-Obama messages, signed “Red Eye CREW” and included the words “FROM BRASIL.”

Minnesota Independent noted that McCollum’s site was still down this morning, and it remained so at 10:25 a.m., with the note that it is currently undergoing site maintenance.
