What difference does it make? If it can be established it came from 1963 or before, then it is remarkably prescient regardless of who wrote it. If you don't want to attribute to that book, fine, attribute to that Representative's statement in the Congressional Record. It stands very well on its own.

Your argument applies to equally to the bogus Hitler quote which servered to embarass the gun rights movement including Heston and Rush. It too was "true" by the "what difference does it make" standard you use. I do not believe we can anywhere but promoting fakes or forgeries. The truth is sufficiently powerful.
