Missing Apollo 17 moon rock worth $10m found in Bill Clinton's files (worth up to $10 million)

An Apollo 17 moon rock missing for 30 years and believed to be worth up to $10 million has turned up in files belonging to Bill Clinton. The valuable rock was one of 50 presented to each state after the 1972 space mission.

NASA has found that since the rocks have been distributed, a very low percentage - which are encased in acrylic and mounted on a plaque along with the intended recipient’s flag - can actually be located.

The rock, believed to have a black market value of up to $10 million, 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, said 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 moon rock, which is in a plastic container, had fallen off the plaque,' Mr Roberts told NBC. 'The archivist immediately knew what he had discovered.'

In the same box with all the missing “w” keys from the White House computers, no doubt.

I guess that explains the bulge in Hillary’s pantsuit as she was walking out of the White House that last day.

Wrong. Bill used it when he couldn't find a cigar.

Yeah, this sets up for Clinton jokes but did anyone read the story? Was found in a box in Arkansas that was probably from when his office was packed up after he lost in 1980.

Can’t you just see the guys packing up the office - “hey boss, what do you think this is in the plastic?” “Shut up and put it in the box - who cares?”

If the Arkansas state government really has a rock worth $30 million, lost in a file box, they should definitely hock it on Pawn Stars and use the money to give the overtaxed citizenry a break.

And, the moon rocks given to the other 56 states should also be sold at auction. We need the money. Times are tough.

And Hillary’s old Whitewater files. Ahh, the good old days— when the occupant of the White House was too busy with the interns to proactively try to destroy the country.

"I'm bringing in Buzz Aldrin, my moon rock expert. If it's real, he'll know right away...Okay, Buzz says it's real, but Bill, I can't give $10 million. That's not going to happen. I'll give you $200,000. I'd love to have it, but it's a specialized item..."

Is that what was in Sandy Burglar’s pants when he was being “sloppy”?

Has me thinking of the missing "Rose Law Firm' records that mysteriously showed up, on a table in White House, family quarters.

This rock has probably been a benign looking paper weight on Hillary's - or Bill's - desk. Something that needed to 'out itself'; however; should a Campaign materialize with Clinton name on it.

Do wonder, what Michelle has her hands on, thus far. . .what is in her 'wish book'. Besides more diamonds, pearls and designer clothes. . .

If they are worth 10 million, couldn't we crank the Apollo program back up and start transporting some of these rocks to pay off the deficit? We might only need a ton or two.

Probably sandwiched in between some old porn magazines and some stale cigars.

If Bill had been on the ball it could have been found at Maxie’s Pawn in down town LR!

Thanks for the reminder! That was as mature as the leftist media accusing Lazio of viciously attacking Hillary with a piece of paper at one of their debates.
