Why, oh why -would you want 30 yr old dried blood from a dead,senile republican?? The tea party freaks would probably try to extract DNA and clone a manchurian candidate...
A vial purportedly containing dried blood from former President Ronald Reagan after a 1981 assassination attempt will not be auctioned online, but donated to Reagan's presidential foundation, officials said Thursday.
The online sale by PFC Auctions, based on the island of Guernsey, a British dependency, drew national headlines -- and a threat of legal action from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation. The foundation's executive director, John Heubusch, called it "a craven act."
"We are very pleased with this outcome and wish to thank the consignor and PFC auctions for their assistance in this matter," Heubusch said in a statement Thursday.
And the seller, who wishes to remain anonymous, said in a statement released by the auction house they "would personally be delighted to see this important artifact put on public display by the foundation."
