Disgraced President’s Desk For Sale In Westport

If I had a desk belonging to the only President of the United States to resign, I probably wouldn’t want to sell it.

If I did want to sell it, I probably would use a high-end auction house. I probably would not put it on Craigslist.

And if I did put it on Craigslist, I’d probably put “NIXON’S DESK!!!!!” in the headline — all in CAPS, with plenty of exclamation points!!!!!

I’m just sayin’.

But right there on the New York Craigslist is this:

Gorgeous mahogany desk — $1450 (Westport)

And the photo:

But not until you read the text do you find (verbatim):

Mahogany desk. Spectacular.

This desk was president Nixons. I do not have a certificate of authenticity. But if you are interested and come see the desk I would be more than happy to tell you the story.

It’s 72″ x 36″ x 30″. The condition is “like new.”

And here’s the Craigslist map, showing where it’s located:
