My Left Nutmeg:

Given the time-sensitivity of this matter, we request that the GAO urgently examine the following aspects of this case and provide its findings/recommendations as quickly as possible:

* Would Mr. Fox's service as Ambassador, if unpaid, be considered "voluntary service" within the meaning of 31 U.S.C. § 1342? If not, why not?

* Is there a conflict between statutes when it comes to Mr. Fox providing "voluntary services"? If so, how should they be reconciled?

* If the United States Senate defeats the nomination of Mr. Fox, would Mr. Fox's recess appointment continue through the current session of the Congress, or would it be terminated?

Can you help us out?
