Bank of America kills Audit the Fed
by Jim Davidson

Special to The Libertarian Enterprise

The news from North Carolina today. They hired a Congress critter to represent Bank of America—the FEC can probably tell you about how much they paid him. And he gutted the Audit the Fed bill.

Bob Ivry at Bloomberg has the story here:

"Paul, a member of the House Financial Services Committee, said Mel Watt, a Democrat from North Carolina, has eliminated 'just about everything' while preparing the legislation for formal consideration. Watt is chairman of the panel's domestic monetary policy and technology subcommittee."

The evil, nefarious, corrupt Watt is congress critter from the 12th district in NC, which includes Charlotte. Learn about him and his weaknesses for socialism and authority. [here] [and here]

Since Watt represents BofA, it probably does you little good to contact him, but it does his office some harm. Here's how:

In Charlotte, he has an office here:
1230 W. Morehead St., Suite 306
Charlotte, NC
Tel. (704) 344-9950
Fax (704) 344-9971

Picket it. Send him faxes until the machine runs out of paper. Keep that phone line busy.

He seems to live at 515 N. Poplar Street in Charlotte, which the white pages publishes with this phone number: 704-333-3310 You be pleasant if Eulada Paysour Watt, his wife, answers the phone. Don't be rude to her just because she seems to have married a whore.

In Greensboro:
301 S. Greene St. Suite 210
Greensboro, NC
Tel. (336) 275-9950
Fax (336) 379-9951

Again with the faxes and the pickets. Bring a sign. It's the old South so don't be more rude than you have to.

In DC you can reach him here:
2304 Rayburn HOB
Washington, DC
Tel. (202) 225-1510
Fax (202) 225-1512

Again with the faxes. Letters. Phone calls.

Keep up the pressure, but let's be careful with anything but lawful contact by the people to protest his conduct in abusing his power to write up the bill for review by the House. What he's done is exceptionally evil and wrong, abuses his power, and violates his fiduciary obligation to the people he represents and, as head of the subcommittee, the people generally.

But we don't know that he won't respond to candle light vigils in front of his home and offices. We don't know that he won't respond and do the right thing when contacted by phone and fax.

Let's find out. Man or weasel?
