Wow!

The jurors in the corruption trial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich sent a note to the judge that they might be deadlocked on some counts.

The jury is asking for guidance if they can't reach a unanimous decision even though they have made "a reasonable attempt."

The judge will be sending a note back to ask for clarification on which counts they are undecided on.

They are on the 11th day of trying to reach a verdict.

Blago pleaded not guilty to 24 accounts, including charges of trying to sell or trade President Barack Obama's Senate seat.

Shady, shady!

    This guy is as guilty as the day is long,



  2. 2

    Well I hope he gets off - if he's guilty so is Rahm Emmanuel and Obama. Blago was in way over his head - Chicago politics are rough business. What a mess - the Chicago Machine prepped BO and foisted him upon our country - shame on them.

    This stinks to high heaven. Deadlocked? Is that equal to payoff?



  4. 4

    I really don't care what happens to this loser. I just want to hear more tapes of his semi-hot wife talking dirty.

    With any luck at all, the creature who makes his home on Blago's head will not attack any members of the jury poo.

    I hope he gets off too! I LOVE Blago! I think he pissed people off and they went after him. If he's guilty, so is EVERY other politician out there. He did a lot for IL!

    so here's the deal from someone in the chicago legal profession..neither the judge nor the attorneys have any idea what the jury could be talking about because the note was so vague. they could be deadlocked on issues involving his brother rob, or actual acts committed, etc. but they're not deadlocked on all charges and the judge specifically sent them a note back saying that being hung on a few charges won't cause a mistrial..if they choose to convict or acquit on others, those rulings will stand regardless of the deadlocking on others. its not all or nothing, its piece by piece

    Who cares. He was excellent on the Apprentice and Obama never did his senate

    Who cares. He was excellent on the Apprentice and Obama never did his job as a Senator anyway. He was and still is campaigning. Rod may or may not have tried to sell the Senate seat but Obama sold out long ago - sounds about equal to me!

    If they jail Blago and he knows too much, he could write a book. I'd love to be a fly on the wall. On second thought, I don't care about Blago, but it's apparent that he's a fighter, either way.
