#Blagojevich juror: Ex-gov's testimony was insulting

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Rod Blagojevich's jurors sat down with the Chicago Sun-Times Tuesday and they talked about their take on the ex-governor's testimony.

They didn't believe him.

And Blagojevich's words made one juror, Karen Woj­cieszak, 64, of Tinley Park, downright angry.

"We had heard seven days of Mr. Blagojevich's 'blah, blah, blah,' " Wojcieszak said. "I don't care if he grew up poor on the North Side of immigrant parents. We're all immigrants unless you're a Native American.

"He really cheated the people of Illinois, or tried to," she continued. "He took an oath to do what was best for the people of Illinois and he didn't do it. So we'll have another governor in jail."
