His jury may be dead locked..
US District Judge James Zagel received a note from jurors Wednesday, the 11th day of deliberations, saying they had made “a reasonable attempt” to reach a unanimous decision on all counts but could not make a consensus on some.
Judge Zagel called the jury “exceptionally disciplined” and said he would tell the jury it was “permissible” for them to return verdicts on some counts and not on others.
On late Wednesday afternoon, the judge said he wants to consult with the jurors before deciding what happens next. He added that the note did not make it clear regarding which counts the jury count not reach consensus.
He is a politician would not be shocked to see him walk. He hasn't done anything other politicians haven't done they were just better at hiding it. I think he knows some stuff about people hire up than him and even if he is convicted won't serve much time because he will be pardoned. I think his trial was a waste of taxpayer money and he will come out on top like many alleged corrupt politicians like him do.

ACTUALLY, Blago may face charges on TWO counts, as that's all the jurors are able to agree on as of now, and walk on the rest...which will likely equate to a slap on the wrist and a political promotion! *sigh*
