CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Partaking in what he calls "political satire," Chappaqua resident Gary Murphy posted a mock for-sale sign lampooning news about one of his famous neighbors.

The sign was posted at the intersection of Old House Lane and Route 117, near the home of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton. It pokes fun at the news of Hillary Clinton using a personal email account for work.

The signage purports to offer a used email server with a "clean" hard drive for sale, directing people interested to "See Bill."

Murphy, who has lived in Chappaqua since 2006, says he posted the signage in response to Hillary Clinton's recent press conference, referring to a widely reported gathering she had with journalists at the United Nations.

Murphy described the press conference as "very controlled" and contended there were unanswered questions. He also defended the posting of the signage, arguing it was not meant to be mean.

Murphy, who is a registered Republican but calls both parties a "mess," referred to the email matter as a "serious issue" and wants it to be open to discussion.

The signage was posted at a bus stop, Murphy said, and was only kept up for about 10 to 15 minutes. So far, Murphy said that he has not personally received negative feedback about it.

The parody sign has garnered publicity from an array of news outlets, including The Washington Post and the Daily News.
