    Rep. Anthony Weiner Hits Glenn Beck, Goldline for "Unholy Alliance" to Sell Gold

    Rep. Anthony Weiner today criticized precious metal dealer Goldline, Inc. for using what a release from his office described as "aggressive sales tactics, conservative spokespeople and rhetoric to sell over-priced gold coins to unsuspecting consumers."

    Goldline is associated with talk radio and Fox News host Glenn Beck, who has often mentioned it on his Fox show and radio program. Goldline is also sponsor of the radio show.

    Weiner accused Beck and other conservative spokespeople (among them Mark Levin and Fred Thompson) of using "their shows to prey on the public's fears of inflation and socialist takeovers while actively promoting the purchase of gold coins as insurance against this purported government overreach."

    "Simply put, Goldline is little more than a gold peddler posing as an investment advisor, an unfortunate byproduct of the Tea Party movement," Weiner's office said.
