Jesse Jackson Jr’s Van Halen guitar removed from auction

Former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.’s  guitar signed by Michael Jackson & Eddie Van Halen was set to be part of Tuesday’s auction of his illegally obtained items, but no more, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

Spokesperson Lynzey Donahue said the item was removed after “an Issue came up about the authenticity” of the item, which at $525, was set to have the highest opening bid of any item in the auction.

Other items forfeited by Jackson are still available, including fur coats and capes,as well as Bruce Lee-autographed memorabilia.
