June 25 (UPI) -- If you ever wanted a piece of presidential scandal history, this may be your chance.

At the same time Monica Lewinsky and President Bill Clinton were engaging in the affair that nearly brought down his presidency, the former White House intern was also carrying on a relationship with a high school teacher from Portland, Ore.

That teacher, Andy J. Blelier, is now auctioning off more than 30 items from the time of the affair, including letters from the president and several clothing items Lewinsky gave to his now ex-wife. Lewinsky was friendly with the Bleliers as a couple while sustaining an affair with Andy Blelier.

“Items owned by Monica Lewinsky, especially relating to the Clinton scandal and Ken Starr investigation are exceedingly rare,” said auctioneer Nate D. Sanders, whose auction house has the items. “This is, to my knowledge, the only collection of this nature to come to light.”

The collection includes a black negligee once owned by Lewinsky, greeting cards from Lewinsky to Bleiler, and even a letter from the president himself:

"Dear Andy: Hillary and I want to personally extend our warmest wishes to you as you gather with your family and friends to celebrate your birthday. As you look forward to the year ahead, please accept our best wishes for good health and much happiness. Happy Birthday!”

The lot description said the items were entered as evidence in the impeachment case against Clinton. There are currently two bids -- with the highest at $2,700 -- for the auction ending late Thursday.
