Have you always wanted to own a piece of recent, sordid history? Well, you’re in luck.
A lot of items that belonged to Monica Lewinsky are up for auction, including a black negligee, several shirts and various letters from her time at the White House when she famously had an affair with President Clinton. The items come courtesy of Andy J. Bleiler, a high school teacher with whom Lewinsky also had an affair. The 32-item collection was submitted by Lewinsky’s former lover Andy Bleiler to special prosecutor Kenneth Starr during his investigation of the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal in the 1990s, the auction house said in a statement. In addition to the clothing, there is a typed letter on White House stationery that is a birthday message from the president to Bleiler — nothing like having your one boyfriend write a birthday card to your other boyfriend. There are also signed photos of the Clintons that Lewinsky sent to the Bleiler and his wife, plus various White House souvenirs — a matchbook, chocolates and M&Ms with the presidential seal on them.
No mention if Bleilers personalized high school science poster from Clinton was included in the collection.
