The local news here in Chicago just did a story on some of the items the U.S Marshalls service will be auctioning off that belonged to Jessie Jackson Jr. Alot of furs and memorabilia he spent a ton of campaign money on. They show some items on the auction block and one was a Gibson Les Paul signed by Michael Jackson and Eddie Van Halen. At the end of the piece they said the guitar that Jackson paid $4,000.00 for was pulled from the auction site this afternoon because Eddie Van Halen called the Marshalls office and said that was not his signature!! LMFAO!!
Nice to see a crook get taken by another crook!

Jesse claims that all his legal problems (stealing, lying, grifting, conning, conniving, etc.) were because of mental health issues. His wife and him stole over $750K and he got like a 3 year sentence. Anybody else would’ve gotten like 10 years.

WASHINGTON–The U.S. Marshals Service announced today it was canceling an ongoing auction of some of Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s pop culture mementos because of concern about the authenticity of a guitar supposedly signed by Michael Jackson and Eddie Van Halen.

Jackson and his wife, Sandi, both South Side Democrats, were sentenced in August to prison terms for looting his campaign treasury of about $750,000.

The Marshals Service released the following statement:

“The U.S. Marshals Service today canceled the auction of forfeited assets from the Jesse Jackson, Jr., case before the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. After receiving legitimate concerns about the authenticity of the guitar purportedly signed by Michael Jackson and Eddie Van Halen and out of an abundance of caution, the Marshals Service will conduct a secondary review of all the assets. Once the review is complete, a decision will be made whether to repost any assets for sale by auction.

“The Marshals Service takes its responsibility to fulfill the asset forfeiture mission very seriously,” said Kim Beal, acting assistant director for the Asset Forfeiture Division of the U.S. Marshals Service. “Because new information has come to light, we are taking additional steps to review all the items. It is our practice to be diligent about all matters relating to the management and sale of assets.
