For all the talk of Jesse Jackson Jr. aspiring to be a U.S. senator or mayor of the nation’s third-largest city, his career wasn’t ended by attempts to amass political power. Instead, it was the former congressman’s desire for flashy items like a gold-plated Rolex watch and furs, and collectibles, such as Eddie Van Halen’s guitar. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)
