‘Green Eggs and Ham’ signed by Cruz brings in thousands

Some people do so like Green Eggs and Ham–particularly if it’s signed by Sen. Ted Cruz.

The freshman senator recently signed three copies of the Dr. Seuss classic children’s story, which the Bexar County Republican Party auctioned off for at a recent fundraiser. According to the San Antonio Express-News, the three copies brought in a total of $2,800, with the first going for $1,000. 

The couple that spent $1,000 on the first copy said it was a present for their eight-year-old daughter. 

Cruz famously read Green Eggs and Ham on the Senate floor last fall during his 21-hour long, fake filibuster to protest the Affordable Care Act.
