When the jury deliberations for disgraced and impeached former Illinois Governor, Rotten Rod Blagojevich, drug past the second day, I told my spouse a juror has been bought.

See the link for Fox News confirmation. One lone hold out hung the jury eleven to one (11 - 1).

My next prediction: the Feds will retry and an untainted jury will find him guilty on all counts.

The real losers again are the taxpayers of this disgraced state. Crooks seem to really succeed in this state. What a shame it is there are so many slow learners here.

Sissy:

1 juror on only one count... what we don't know is what the score was on the other 22 counts. The disgrace is that Fitzgerald and his team, with all their resources came up nearly empty handed, when they gloated about how they were going to readily put him away... I'm sure he got an earful after the lone verdict.

Blago got his money's worth from Adam Sr & Jr.

regards,

Jay

Obama was a featured player in this whole issue. Since the Obama history is a mystery they had lots of practice fixing the outcome for Blago.

Blago can't keep his mouth shut which may be a fatal mistake.

In today's Tribune... it was 11-1 on the Senate Seat sale count, they remained far apart on the others...

The only other state more corrupt than Illinois is New Jersey.
Why the people of Illinois keep electing corruption is beyond
me. I recall when the Illinois Secretary of State died of a
heart attack in the mid-80's. They found over a million bucks
in cash in his apartment. It all starts with the Chicago machine.
One of these days they'll hopefully get Mayor Daley.

Unfortunately the Chicago and surrounding area has more population to vote in these bottom dwellers than the rest of the state. What is wrong with the voters of Chicago and its surrounding areas beats the shit out of me.

They're city people. They think instead of hunting and killing animals you should go to the store and buy the meat where they make it.

They flush the toilet and the nasty goes away. If they had to fix their own vehicle they would have a stroke. Hammer and nail are foreign to them, replaced with doublle bubble and steak houses.

Most of them suck on the public teat or slop at the public trough in one way or another.

And they have an appetitie for bullshit, because they swallow a lot of it every election.

Disclaimer: Not all of them are like that, but enough to ensure that the bullshit will continue.

I would like to know the whole story We never will..Wonder who Blago was going to sell the senate seat to..Could it have been Jessee Jackson Jr by any chance..The shoebox politician was Paul Powell He had the money in shoeboxes in his closet when he died..Almost like the louisiana politician that kept it in the freezer..Could Rahmn and Osamma and Resko add anything to this mess??
We are only getting about 20% of the story..Why not play all of the tapes..The government sure did a lot of leaking of the evidence and tried to use the court of public opinion..The media is owned by the politicians..They don't report the news they just tell stories..Never let the facts get in the way,,The Chicago way that is.We will just blow another 30 million for the retrial..The taxpayers can afford it..Let them eat cake..

Here is a question for you, Heard yesterday they have set aside 30 mil for a new trial. Now the feds and staff are all ready on payroll, judgeand all court people except the jury are already getting paid. So where does the 30 mil go?

If I was on the jury, I would have said not guilty until the suppressed evidence implicating Obama was also brought up. Why throw one rat off the cliff when the whole "rat pack" could have been driven over the edge.

I agree with GunDr..What was the hurry to arrest Blago..We could have learned what rat was going to take the cheese..Jessee.Lisa Madigan.Maybe one of the mayors hand picked relatives.Sellers need buyers..Maybe the government has a list of buyers..I'm sure they do.

Based on news reports the 1 juror hung the jury on many counts. The news also went on to say that the juror was a past state employee. Several of the other jurors stated that the juro that hung the jury would want" to see a video of one person shooting another" before convicting some one of murder. At this point it's a mute point Blago is a convicedt felon why spend any more with a retrial?
