Submission + - Hackers target Teap Party website ( 3

GovTechGuy writes: A sophisticated hacker attack took down the website of the pro-Tea Party group Freedomworks just as Fox News Glenn Beck was promoting a fund-raising "money bomb" for the site. The group estimates the attack cost them $80,000 in potential donations.
“It’s like the tea party movement’s been hacked,” Freedomworks spokesman Adam Brandon said.
