CHICAGO (AP) — Mink capes, Bruce Lee autographs and Michael Jackson memorabilia that belonged to Jesse Jackson Jr. will be sold to the highest bidder to help ensure the former congressman pays his debt to society in full.
The U.S. Marshals Service starts selling 13 items Tuesday in an online auction. Proceeds go to help repay $750,000 in campaign funds that the Chicago Democrat illegally spent over several years.
Jackson was also sentenced to 2 ½ years in prison at a hearing in Washington, D.C., last month.
Among the items being auctioned is a guitar signed by both Michael Jackson and Eddie Van Halen.
Prosecutors say Jackson also spent thousands of dollars on mounted elk heads. Those are not listed as the objects being sold this week.
