Illinois Jeweler Selling Senate Seats

As Gawker pointed out, a Chicago furniture store is running ads claiming that it “sells more seats than the Governor.” Now a local jewelry store is literally selling Senate seats, as beautiful charms!

The store, Pettet Jewelry in Peoria, is offering the charms “for sale with a donation,” whatever that means. For only thirty-five dollars, you can own a sterling silver Senate seat charm, which will surely amuse every single person you ever meet. Call us when you can buy a charm of Blagojevich’s hair.
