Blagojevich inspires 'Bleep'n Golden' hair-care products

Sunday, May 17, 2009

CHICAGO -- Just when we thought we'd heard "bleep'n" everything.

A Chicago-area company is marketing hair products inspired by ousted Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich. The shampoo and conditioner carry the brand name "BLAGO It's Bleep'n Golden!"

The owner of Delta Laboratories Inc. of Elk Grove Village says the idea came to him one night.

Blagojevich was removed from office in January after being accused of misdeeds that include trying to sell President Obama's vacant Senate seat. The brand name refers to a comment he allegedly made about the appointment: "I've got this thing and it's [expletive] golden."

Blagojevich has pleaded not guilty to federal charges. His publicist, Glenn Selig, said he hopes the shampoo "at least passes the smell test."
