The eBay Myth

From ABC News:

In their first post-convention appearance, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., gushed about his running mate Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin with a story that doesn’t quite square with reality.

“You know what I enjoyed the most?” McCain said in Cederburg, Wisconsin, according to ABC News’ Bret Hovell. “She took the luxury jet that was acquired by her predecessor and sold it on e-Bay. And made a profit!”

What a delightful story.

But it’s not true.

She didn’t sell the jet on eBay.

And she didn’t make a profit.
