The spokesman, Eric Hoffman of the Washington strategic communications firm Powell Tate, said that Goldline's fresh-faced pitchman Scott Carter will be testifying at the upcoming hearings, which he said are currently scheduled for the end of September.

"Scott looks forward to talking to members of congress about Goldline," Hoffman said.

Beck has called the criticism of Goldline "the biggest spin you've ever seen" and suggested it was part of a government plot to deprive mainstream Americans of choices in how they invest their savings.

"They are going to nudge the gold industry out of business," Beck said on his syndicated radio program in July. "They are going to regulate it and regulate it and regulate it, until you won't be able to buy gold anymore. This is what I'm telling you -- they can't have people buying gold. They need to own all the gold. They're going to nudge us. Mark my words."
