EVANSVILLE – Federal agents seized two tons of copper coins featuring Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul and 500 pounds of silver during a raid on the headquarters of a group seeking to dissolve the Federal Reserve.
Agents also took records, computers and froze the bank accounts at the “Liberty Dollar” headquarters during the Thursday raid, said Bernard von NotHaus, founder of the National Organization for the Repeal of the Federal Reserve Act & Internal Revenue Code.
“They’re running scared right now and they had to do something,” von NotHaus told The Associated Press on Friday. “I’m volunteering to meet the agents and get arrested so we can thrash this out in court.”
“They raided right after the Ron Paul shipment got in. I thought that was amazing,” von NotHaus said. “It isn’t endorsed by Ron Paul, even though Ron Paul is a friend of mine. It came as a total surprise.”
