Court Halts Sale of September 11 Coins

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer on Wednesday obtained a court order to temporarily suspend the sale of commemorative Sept. 11 coins heavily advertised as being minted from silver recovered at ground zero.

Spitzer said the sale of the silver dollars emblazoned with the World Trade Center towers on one side and the planned Freedom Tower on the flip side is a fraud and he's investigating the claim the silver came from the ruins of the twin towers.

``It is a shameless attempt to profit from a national tragedy,'' Spitzer said. ``This product has been promoted with claims that are false, misleading or unsubstantiated.''...

Oh, really. And running a presidential campaign based on a national tragedy isn't also a shameless attempt at profiting from a national tragedy? Especially when your presidency isn't legetimate in the first place?

and I bet those same folks who bought the 9/11 coins are voting for Bush.
