Lyndon LaRouche Founded Wikipedia?

You have to wonder (yet again) just what is going on at universities these days. The Lantern, which styles itself as "The Student Voice of Ohio State University", currently has an article on a recent rally for perennial presidential candidate Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr. (Use BugMeNot.com to deal with annoying login nonsense.) Now normally, this would be of no particular interest to anyone off campus, but then in the last paragraph, the paper announces that LaRouche founded Wikipedia.org! This must be quite a surprise to Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger, who everyone else thinks started the web based encyclopedia. In an interesting twist, BoingBoing.com points out that most of the bio information on LaRouche is lifted straight from Wikipedia
