The online auction site eBay jumped the gun by hawking memorabilia of John Cardinal O’Connor the minute it was learned that he died.  When contacted by the press, William Donohue said “It’s in very poor taste.  They should have at least had the decency to wait until after the funeral.”  He went on to say that “This is a cheap exploitive move to make a quick buck.  I’m not against the auctioning of these items, but there should be a waiting period.”
