Hillary Clinton sent Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul a signed copy of her book this week, and now he’s putting it up for auction.
The Republican presidential hopeful inscribed Clinton’s book “Hard Choices” with an attack on her leadership at the State Department, which is now listed on eBay for auction, along with a signed copy of Paul’s own book, “Taking a Stand.”
“Your refusal to provide security to our mission in Benghazi should forever preclude you from higher office!” Paul wrote, next to his signature.
“Senator Rand Paul is a big fan of fiction,” Paul spokesman Sergio Gor said in a statement. “Hard Choices is a great example of revisionist history. We encourage everyone to bid and get their own copy now!”
Clinton sent all Republican candidates a copy of her book this week, she announced on the campaign trail Tuesday, saying they could read it to learn how to conduct foreign policy.
Paul’s book is being offered for auction by Victory Store Online, an Iowa-based campaign vendor. It is not clear from the listing who will receive the proceeds of the sale, which does not include the standard campaign legal language surrounding campaign donations, including limitations on who can give and how much they can donate.
The current highest bid as of Wednesday afternoon is $300.
