Jackson Jr.'s Minks, Michael Jackson memorabilia up for auction

It's no mounted elk head, but Michael Jackson and mink coat fans can get their hands on former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.'s stuff pretty cheap. The former congressman was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison last month for misusing $750,000 in campaign funds to buy lavish items like sports memorabilia, mounted elk heads, fur coats and Bruce Lee autographed items for himself and his wife, Sandi.
