State tells lawmaker gold is for fools

Jerry O’Neil wrote the state legislature asking to be paid his annual $7,000 salary in coins because constituents in his district told him he wasn’t doing his duty to uphold the U.S. Constitution, which O’Neil and Gold standard supporters say requires the government only print gold-backed money.
