(Newser) – Rod Blagojevich is going to prison, and what better way to honor the former governor than by selling seats. No, not Senate seats, airline seats. Shortly after Blagojevich's sentencing, Spirit Airlines launched a "seat-selling" sale, the AP reports. Customers can escape Chicago for just $14—equivalent to the number of years Blagojevich faces behind bars. But you "don't have to live in the Big House" to score the deal, the airline says.
