(Newser) – For any wealthy Sarah Palin super-fans out there, this could be your chance: eBay is hosting an auction for a private dinner with the former Alaska governor and husband Todd—provided the winner passes a background check. Bidding starts at $25,000, and proceeds go to a charity that provides vets with bicycles, reports CNN. For those who'd rather eat with Karl Rove, the bids start at $7,500. The 10-day auction starts Tuesday.
