Rick Mercer Liberal Leadership Auction


With the top bid for his Liberal leadership kit auction sitting at an unrealistic $16 million, comedian Rick Mercer is beginning to wonder if the gag has gone a little too far.

The host of CBC’s Rick Mercer Report will be on the hook for an eBay seller’s fee when the auction ends Tuesday. The fee is a percentage of the selling price and is charged to a seller as soon as the auction closes.

If the auction ended with a $16-million selling price, Mr. Mercer would owe eBay at least $240,000 in fees.
