Airline offers 'slammer sale' in honor of Blagojevich sentencing

An airline is offering passengers a sale in honor of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich being sentenced to prison.

Spirit Airlines, based in Miramar, Fla., which offers flights out of a Chicago airport, said Thursday that it was offering flights for $14, which is the number of years Blagojevich was sentenced to serve in prison for his conviction on corruption charges. 

After he was sentenced this week, Spirit said Thursday  "you don't have to live in the 'Big House' to take advantage of these fares" to among other places, Chicago.

"But hurry... You don't want to get convicted for missing this seat-selling sale!" the airline's advertisement said.

The former Illinois governor was accused of attempting to sell the Senate seat that President Obama vacated winning the presidency in 2008.
