For sale: One used -- bleeping -- Senate seat.

Lots of people are poking fun at Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who's accused of trying sell President-elect Barack Obama's vacant senate seat.

More than a dozen people have posted listings eBay for the senate vacancy.

Of course, the auctions are to make a point, not a buck.

University of Illinois student Matt Platino says he made his posting to be funny and because he's upset with the governor.

One eBay listing notes the senate auction is for "entertainment purposes only."
