Fwd: Blago

You know, I almost felt sorry for the guy.  Politicians are corrupt.
Why is that news?   I am sure that there are back-room deals happening
all the time.   The people who hung him out to dry are probably more
corrupt than he is.
I do think it is good to expose it.

Best wishes,
John Coffey

'Jurors who have spent the last 11 days deliberating in the corruption
trial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich have been able to listen
to more than 100 excerpts of wiretap tapes, look through any notes
they took during testimony and refer to some 120 pages of jury
instructions.

All of that, though, may not have been enough to prevent them from
becoming deadlocked.'

I thought a unanamous decision was only needed for death penalty cases…
