Inauguration Tickets A Tough Sell For Would Be Speculators

WASHINGTON D.C. (CelebrityAccess) — Tickets for president elect Donald Trump's inauguration are putting a crimp on the bottom line of some scalpers.

Ticket speculators who purchased tickets to the inauguration, with hopes of flipping them for a quick buck are finding out that at least in some cases, they aren't selling quite as well as they expected.

Yossi Rosenberg, 36, of upper Manhattan, told the Daily News that he acquired two tickets with plans to resell them but has been unable to do so.

"Nobody wants to buy them," Rosenberg told The News. "It looks like I'm stuck with them, I might even have to go."

Compounding matters for would-be scalpers, free tickets to the inaugural ceremony were distrbuted to members of the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. senators to provide to their constituents on request. – Staff Writers
