White House Deed Winds Up In Casino?s Hands!
SEPTEMBER 14, 2005, VANCOUVER, CANADA -- The only known deed to exist for America?s most famous address has been bought by Internet casino and poker room GoldenPalace.com for an unbelievable $43.45 through online auction house www.eBid.tv.
While conducting research for his upcoming book ?Night of the Realtors?, in which a Canadian realtor sells the White House, seller David Jenneson discovered that the US Government has no deed recording the property ownership for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
According to Jenneson?s eBid page, he sent a written request to the US National Archives regarding the deed. A two month search resulted in the archives office sending a letter stating they could not find the deed for the White House. After an extensive amount of legal survey and analysis, Jenneson acquired the only known deed in existence.
?The winning bid will acquire a Quitclaim Deed for the famous property, plus a signed copy of my book Night of the Realtors?, said Jenneson on his eBid page.
GoldenPalace.com has a reputation for acquiring unique and extraordinary items through online auctions. Their numerous buys on eBay have made headlines worldwide, and they have received an enormous amount of exposure as a result.
?This unique item is a great example of American pop culture, and we think the Oval Office will make a great poker room,? joked GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. ?This will make a great addition to our collection of eccentric and extraordinary items. People will get to see the deed when we bring it on tour with our other auction purchases.?
Setting the standard in marketing creativity, GoldenPalace.com has devised some of the most exciting and outrageous advertising campaigns in the past few years. Recently, items such as the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Britney Spears? Pregnancy Test, and Pope Benedict XVI?s previously-owned VW Golf have garnered extensive worldwide media attention for the casino.

I think that the White House might be a much more popular place with a casino inside of it. With many more people visiting for tourism every day. And they would get to go inside too! Where will poor Georgie-boy live then? I guess he will move back in with dad.

Yes, GP - now that you own the place - please evict ol' George and let some of those poor stranded people from New Orleans live there until they can get new housing. Doesn't George W. have a number of residences? The hurricane victims have 0 houses, so George W. would still be WAY ahead (unfortunately).

The deed should be given to the White House for archiving. After all, the White House belongs to the American people, NOT the current resident, whomever it might be.

One Word - REZONING. I think there need to be strip club at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. I think its only fitting there be a stripper pole in the oval office. God Bless America !!

GoldenPalace should take over one room...maybe the Oval Office...to store all their weird items they have bought from auction sites, and then let all the people that are Advertising for them, take a tour of their Ovsal Office museum :) *Hint* ((Winks))LOL

I don't think this is a laughing matter! There is no respect or decency left and certainly no common sense.

I think you need to do as the auction says and register it w/ the DC Gov\'t, DC Code 42-406 and see what happends when you put your companies name as the owner of the property (=
