Rod Blagojevich Trial Day 40: Jury deadlocked


The jury in the Rod Blagojevich criminal corruption trial on Thursday starts Day 12 of deliberations--though that may be the wrong word to use at this point. On Wednesday, the jury told U.S. District Court Judge James Zagel they were deadlocked. Zagel wanted more specifics on if they were deadlocked on everything or just some of the counts. The Sun-Times Natasha Korecki over at the Blago Blog analyzes the cliffhanger.

The Sun-Times Blagojevich trial team story on the deadlock is here.


What the heck are they confused about, this jerk is as guilty as anyone I have ever heard of. If they don't convict him then they have let another crooked politician get away with murder.

Wow. 11 days and this is all they got!?

Follow the money!
