Bitter Vitter shopping free Superdome luxury suites
While the Alabama Crimson Tide was beating LSU 21-0 in the BCS national championship game in the Mercedes Benz Superdome on Jan. 9, 2012, U.S. Sen. David Vitter was entertaining a number of guests in one of the Superdome’s 152 luxury suites—at a hefty cost, LouisianaVoice has learned.
Vitter, who apparently gained access to the suite through corporate largesse, took full advantage of the occasion to charge guests $4,000 per seat, according to one person who was there.
Ticket scalping laws vary from state to state and in Louisiana:
- Tickets cannot be sold at more than their face value price except on the Internet;
- Tickets for university sporting events cannot be sold online by Louisiana legislators or university students;
- Tickets can be resold online at greater than their face value price if approved by both the event operator (NCAA) and the venue operator (the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District).
