Tickets to this month's presidential inaugration given out for free by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) are being scalped online, The Hill reported on Tuesday.
While the practice is not illegal, Congressional members frown upon the scalping of tickets to the inauguration.
More from The Hill:
People looking to make a quick buck off of the inauguration are scalping the free tickets doled out to constituents by congressional offices — including from the offices of Pelosi and Portman — and attempting to sell them for big money on Craigslist.
ITK uncovered hordes of ads, many of them discreetly worded, on the classifieds site seeking to sell tickets to President Obama’s swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 21.
