A long-lost, highly valuable Moon rock brought back from the Apollo 17 mission has turned up in the files of Bill Clinton.

The rock was one of 50 presented to each state, and was given to Arkansas while the ex-president was governor. The rock, worth millions of dollars, had been missing since at least 1980 until an archivist found it in old gubernatorial papers. Bobby Roberts, director of the Central Arkansas Library System, told Reuters the archivist opened a box previously archived as "Arkansas flag plaque." The rock and a state flag were originally affixed to the plaque, but the rock had fallen off and the plaque had been misplaced.

The only thing Hill and Clintbilly forgot was to take it with them when they left the White House.

I guess they were so busy packing antique furniture and china into the vans—not to speak of FBI records—that they just plain forgot about it.

Heh. No doubt the moon rock was merely there to weigh down a birth certificate.

The rock, worth millions of dollars

Why do conservatives make such poor investigative journalists/dirt diggers? If he had been a Republican, this would've been all over the front page of the New York Times within a year.

It should have played a role in his impeachment and even today it ought to put him in prison.

Moon rock?

It’s the box of rocks he was keeping just in case he ever had to prove he was the ‘smartest President’ in American history!!
