Does Hillary Clinton back Lyndon LaRouche’s candidate for U.S. Senate in Texas? Or are some of her supporters just angling for Oliver Stone?

Those questions are flying after the Twitter site @HillaryClinton2016 retweeted LaRouche PAC’s message: “Filmmaker @SeanStone endorses @KeshaRogers2014, promoters her campaign with ½ hour interview.”

Sean Stone is son of movie director Oliver Stone – whose left-of-center politics are well known.

What isn’t known is if Hillary is all in for Rogers – an independent Democrat running on a platform to impeach President Barack Obama.

Rogers, with a second-place showing in a crowded primary field, forced mainstream Democrat David Alameel into a runoff for the party's nomination.

Tuesday’s winner will face two-term Republican Sen. John Cornyn in the fall.

The Clinton2016 site is run by Steve Rosinski, who lists himself on the Twitter account as "former advance man for the Clinton/Gore White House."

Clinton officials could not be reached for comment. LaRouche spokeswoman Debra Freeman said she knew of no connection between the Clinton and Rogers campaigns. (See her full response below.)

Rogers calls herself “the only qualified candidate to take on Wall Street's Alameel and Wall Street's John Cornyn, both of whom are products of the apparatus that has been destroying the country since the assassination of JFK."
