ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) - A suburban Chicago storage facility is auctioning off seven vaults worth of files, photographs and other items that belong to former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's campaign fund.
Among the items up for bidding Thursday is a life-size statue of Elvis.
Joe Saverino, an executive at Boyer-Rosene Moving & Storage in Arlington Heights, says Friends of Blagojevich hasn't paid thousands of dollars in fees it owes the company. He says he put aside some items that appeared personal and will try to return them to Blagojevich.
The former governor was convicted this week of lying to the FBI. A federal judge declared a mistrial on the other charges against him.
