Spirit Airlines Capitalizes on Blago Conviction

They’re at it again! Less than 24 hours after former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was convicted on 17 felony corruption charges, Spirit Airlines has sent an e-mail ad that features a Blago doppelganger behind bars with the tag line, "We got these fares and they're f-ing golden."

The ad goes on to say the fares are “from only $17 each way, based on roundtrip purchase.”

Only members of the Spirit Airlines Fare Club are eligible for the reduced fares on select travel dates. Time is short -- the offer ends Wednesday at noon central time.

The ad on Spirit's web site also says, "We are guilty of selling seats but don't expect this sale to serve much time... Get booked now!"
