Auction held today for luxury items bought by Jackson Jr.

An auction will begin today for luxury items once owned by convicted ex-Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.

The U.S. Marshals Service is selling a dozen items that Jackson bought with campaign funds.

He pleaded guilty to those charges, and will spend 30-months in prison.

His wife, Sandi, was sentenced to 12 months after pleading guilty to tax fraud.

The auction includes fur coats and capes, along with pictures of Michael Jackson and Bruce Lee.

A guitar that was believed to have been signed by Michael Jackson and Eddie Van Halen has been removed from the auction after questions came up about its authenticity.
