Secret Service and FBI agents raided the makers of Ron Paul silver dollars, Liberty Dollar of Evansville, Ind., early Thursday in a move likely aimed at stamping out an illegal currency[??!!].
The company started selling precious-metal coins stamped with an image of Paul earlier this year, with the first one made of silver available in July. Part of the marketing for the coins involved a promise that part of the sale price would be donated to the Paul campaign.
But if the raid results in the conviction of anyone involved, it is possible that the Paul campaign may have to return a cash donation made by Liberty Dollar.
I can’t believe that with all the “mints” around stamping out “memorabilia” coins that anyone could take seriously the idea that these things are counterfeit money. I will bet anyone that this raid originated in the campaign headquarters of Rudy Giuliani.
More on the story here.Undermining the US currency??? hardly. But I would anticipate that this raid is gonna pump up Paul’s campaign again.
