Blago Guilty

Of course, it's only on a count of lying to the Feds.

A federal jury today convicted former Gov. Rod Blagojevich of only one count against him: lying to the FBI. Jurors said they were deadlocked on the other 23 counts against the former governor, and all four counts against his brother Robert.

Blagojevich, who faces up to 5 years in prison, pursed his lips and shook his head slightly.

Patti rested her head on the chair in front of her and shook her head no several times.
Blagojevich looked at her with an annoyed look on his face.

This is similar to the charges that Martha Stewart was found guilty of and Blago will likely receive roughly the same amount of time. The Feds have said they intend to try him on the other charges so we may have this circus.

Fitzgerald should have waited until Blago actually "sold" the US Senate seat. Intending to do something may be a crime under some circumstances but one juror did not agree.
