Blagojevich leaves the courthouse to boos and cheers

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


A huge mob scene formed downstairs. Dozens and dozens of people stood watch outside the courthouse and inside -- waiting to hear news of the verdict and to catch a glimpse of Rod Blagojevich.

The former governor left the courthouse minutes ago after proclaiming the prosecution's case -- which he estimated to cost millions of dollars -- a waste of taxpayer money.

Blagojevich worked the crowd, shaking hands, doing high-fives with the crowd and waving outside to the dismay of his wife, Patti, who yanked him by the arm and told him to move it along.

The prosecution is now addressing the media.
