It’s not the real thing, but it’s about as close as most of us will ever get. Iranian-American developer Fred Milani, citing the dismal state of the housing market, is putting his 16,500 square-foot replica of the White House in Atlanta up for sale. “I don’t want to sell, but I will,” he told UPI. The house is apparently in foreclosure. No word on whether the faux-White House comes with a staff of butlers and chefs. But hey, you’ll just have to make do.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
