Rod Blagojevich may have had a minor victory in court when he escaped for now the 23 most serious charges he faced.
But he lost at auction.
Seven dust-collecting crates including pictures, campaign signs, even a life-size statue of Elvis went be up for grabs at the carnival-like auction. A painting of Abraham Lincoln has sold for $600 at an auction of the belongings of convicted former Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Bidding on a giant statue of Elvis started at $3000.
The property belonged to the former governor's campaign committee, "Friends of Blagojevich."
A spokesperson for the northwest suburban storage facility says it has not received a payment from the organization in more than a year.
Boyer-Rosene Moving & Storage plans to donate proceeds from the auction to Children's Memorial Hospital, an institution Blagojevich is accused of trying to shake down for campaign contributions.
