Rand Paul auctions off Hillary Clinton's book

Story highlights

  • Clinton said this week she sent her latest autobiography, Hard Choices, to her Republican rivals
  • Paul placed the book -- signed by both him and Clinton -- on Ebay

Washington (CNN)Rand Paul is re-gifting Hillary Clinton's book.

Clinton said this week she sent her latest autobiography, Hard Choices, to her Republican rivals as a tongue-in-cheek way to explain her accomplishments as secretary of state. And Paul, one of those Republicans, is now auctioning off that book, promoting it on his online store as an opportunity to "GET YOUR OWN SIGNED COPY OF A GREAT FICTION BOOK!"
Paul placed the book -- signed by both him and Clinton -- on Ebay, and as of Wednesday evening it had attracted five bids and was available for $300. The auction, which includes a copy of Paul's new book, Taking a Stand, closes just before 2 p.m. Saturday.
    Other Republican candidates have in return offered to send Clinton copies of their own books or said they would read Clinton's if she watched controversial Planned Parenthood videos.
    Paul chose to take a shot at Clinton's record at the State Department on the title page of her book.
    "Hillary, your refusal to provide security for our mission in Benghazi should forever preclude you from higher office!" he wrote in black ink before affixing his signature, according to a photograph in his online store.
    Paul lists the item's condition as "brand new" and its subject as "fantasy."
