Senator Claire McCaskill's "Damn Plane" Gets Billboards

The independent GOP group American Crossroads put up two billboard ads this week, slamming Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri for a private jet scandal earlier this year.
Posted outside airports in St. Louis and Springfield, the signs read: "Sky-high airfares got you down? Senator Claire McCaskill: Flies in her own jet – and you pay for it!"
McCaskill used to be Missouri's Auditor, so there's a bit of irony about the plane. Several months ago, the Riverfront Times reported that the plane had been listed for sale on Craigslist. The ad was presumably placed by an opposition political operative bogus.

Did she ever get rid of the "damn plane", or was that all talk, too?

As of June 22nd, she had not yet sold it. I haven't heard anything since then, though.
