Reporting with Natasha Korecki
Judge James Zagel's just questioned a juror who is a registered nurse at Children's Memorial Hospital, which prosecutors have accused Blagojevich of shaking down for campaign contributions.
The man works full time at the hospital. He told Zagel he talked about the case with his coworkers during last year's trial, and knew Children's Memorial was involved.
"From the viewpoint of the prosecution, Children's Memorial Hospital is a victim of this offense, and from the viewpoint of the defendant in this case, it was not, in fact, victimized," Zagel told the juror. "Which means there's an issue about the place you work. Would that affect your ability to be fair and impartial?"
"I don't think so," the man replied.
