Man who said 'fuck yourself' to Cheney selling tape on eBay

RAW STORY

The emergency room physician who told Vice President Dick Cheney to "fuck yourself" was selling a video of the incident on eBay, and the price rose to nearly $700 before it was removed by administrators, RAW STORY has discovered.

The eBay bidding page was found here.

On the removed auction page, physician Ben Marble, wrote about losing his home in Hurricane Katrina.

"A week or so ago I experienced the single most traumatic week of my life," he wrote on the eBay posting.

On his way out from examining the wreckage, Marble said that he encountered a long line of cars.

"Suddenly a long line of dark cars pulls up and they start honking at me to backup to let the long line of cars through the barricade that supposedly no one can drive through," he added. "I waved a middle finger at the caravan. I drove the extra 20 minutes and finally made it back to my former house filming video of the destruction along the way. A few minutes later I overheard a neighbor say that Dick Cheney was down the street talking to people."

"Right in front of the destroyed tennis court I used to play on Dick Cheney was giving a pep rally talking to the press," he claimed. "The Secret Service guys patted us down and waved the wands over us and then let us pass."

"I then took a picture of him and then yelled 'Go Fu* Yourself Mr. Cheney ....Go Fu* YOURSELF....Go Fu* Yourself...you asshole.' I had/have no intention of harming anyone but merely wanted to echo Mr. Cheney's infamous words back at him. At that moment I noticed the Secret Service guys with a panic stricken look on their faces like they were about to tackle me so I calmly walked away back to my former house."

Marble said he was later detained.

eBay was not available for comment.
