Patti Blagojevich is suing a Chicago radio station for allegedly making fun of her husband in an advertisement.

The ad campaign ran last year on CTA buses and trains, and on billboards in the Chicago area.

Mrs. Blagojevich claims WIQI-FM used a likeness of her husband in the ad.

The former governor, Rod Blagojevich, is currently serving a 14-year sentence at a Colorado prison for corruption.
