Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has found a new method of raising cash by signing Dr. Seuss books that he didn't write.
In a fundraising email that was sent on Thursday, Cruz said that he had signed 175 copies of Green Eggs and Ham.
"I'm reaching out to supporters like you first, before we post this anywhere else," the email states. "Look at this as your 2021 'cancel culture collectible' from Ted Cruz."
"Donate $60 right now, and we'll send you a signed copy of Green Eggs and Ham!" the message continues. "This ridiculous cancel culture is off the rails. It is infuriating."
The email adds: "Your support will help us fight back against the 'woke' mob in our country and the Democrats doing their bidding in Washington."
In 2013, Cruz read Green Eggs and Ham on the Senate floor in an effort to filibuster President Barack Obama's health care reform legislation.
