Ronald Reagan Blood No Longer For Sale

May 24, 2012

The dream of some deranged conservative using the DNA to clone a perfect president withers away.

A European auction house Thursday canceled the planned online sale of a vial containing dried blood residue said to be from Ronald Reagan after complaints from the late U.S. president’s family and foundation.

The PFC Auction house said in a statement that the seller had withdrawn the item, which was linked to the 1981 assassination attempt on Reagan, and plans instead to donate it to the former president’s foundation.

The statement said the seller, who has remained anonymous, had obtained the vial at a U.S. auction earlier this year.

The decision not to sell the controversial item was praised by the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation in California, which had earlier announced plans to try to stop the sale through legal means.
