Gifts for people who have everything: Jesse Jr. loot to be auctioned off by feds

Looking for a gift for someone who seemingly has everything? How about buying that person a piece of Chicago corruption history?

From CBS Chicago:
You will have a chance to buy the items Jesse Jackson Junior and his wife Sandi illegally purchased with campaign contributions, but you’ll have to be patient.

The list of items is extensive and includes flat screen TVs, fur coats, a fedora worn by Michael Jackson, a $43,000 gold-plated Rolex watch and more.

Once the Jacksons are sentenced, all those items, including the stuffed elk heads and the celebrity memorabilia , become the responsibility of assistant U.S. Marshal Belkis Sandoval in Chicago.

“We notify the public of which items are going to be for sale,” said Sandoval.
The Jacksons will be sentenced this summer.
