Though Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was only convicted on Monday, a company is already trying to profit from the situation.
Low-budget carrier Spirit Airlines has an advertisement on its website touting "f-ing golden" low fares.
That refers to allegations jurors convicted Blagojevich of Monday -- that he tried to sell President Barack Obama's vacated U.S. Senate seat.
FBI recordings captured Blagojevich saying his ability to name Obama's successor was "f---ing golden" and that he wouldn't appoint someone for nothing.
The website commercial features a man with thick black hair similar to Blagojevich's trademark hair. It adds, "We are guilty of selling seats, but don't expect this sale to serve much time."
The Miramar, Fla.-based airline includes flights to the Caribbean and Latin America.
