Traficantís Office, Home Furniture Up For Auction
November 22, 2002

Put this on your wish list, a desk that belonged to former Ohio Congressman James Traficant.

The custom-made walnut and marble desk is just one of the items up for auction on December 1st.

The desk even comes complete with the words Property of the House of Representatives inscribed on the inside.

The Jeff Auglin Auction Service will also offer a wooden yoke, a collection of federal duck stamps and several church pews.

The items were collected from Traficant's Washington, DC, office, his Boardman office and his Green Township farmhouse.

Auglin says he expects more than his regular crowd of 100 to 200 people to come out for the auction.

Sixty-one-year-old Traficant was convicted on racketeering charges in April and was consequently expelled from the House. In August, he began serving an eight-year sentence at the Allenwood Federal Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania.
