Spirit Airlines Uses “Seat-Selling” Sale To Poke Fun At Rod Blagojevich

Just one day after Rod Blagojevich was sentenced to 14-years in prison for his attempt to sell or trade the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by President Barack Obama, Spirit Airlines has announced a “seat-selling sale.”

For a limited time the airline is offering $14 one-way fares from Chicago to seven cities on their flight route.

As the company tells customers, they have to ask quick or miss the “seat-selling” sale. Throwing a little more wood on the political fire Spirit Airlines note that customers “don’t have to live in the Big House” to buy fares.

Rod Blagojevich must report to prison on Feb. 16 where he will begin serving out his time surrounding 18-counts of fraud, in the meantime as I reported yesterday he will be getting his finances in order until that time and spending the holiday’s with his family.

Do you think the Spirit Airlines campaign is mean spirited considering Blagojevich is also leaving behind two young daughter and a wife as he heads to prison?
