Reporting with Natasha Korecki, Dave McKinney and Abdon Pallasch
Rod Blagojevich has left the Dirksen Federal Building after learning that the jury in his federal corruption trial may be deadlocked on some or all of the counts against him.
The ex-governor kept unusually hush-hush as he left the building, walking past a huge crowd of media without saying a word. He did pause briefly outside to shake hands with well-wishers.
"Thank you," Blagojevich waved as he got in his car.
A few paces behind, Blagojevich's lawyer Sam Adam Sr. was asked, "Did you understand that note?"
"No, of course not," he said.
