We owe those jurors a debt of gratitude for taking their civic responsibility seriously. They spent hour upon hour listening intently to the testimony and made decisions based upon the evidence--not some emotional response to how "likable" Blago is. Kudos to them for making their decisions and convicting the guy. Ding dong, the wicked self-promoting GUILTY ex-governor is going to jail!

He was a loose cannon. Couldn't keep his mouth shut like the rest of Illinois politicians that played the game better than he did. Many Illinois pols are just as corrupt as Blago but are smarter at getting away with it than he was. Citizens of Illinois will continue to suffer at the hands of leaders that serve themselves before the people. Nothing will change.

This guy fooled us all being elected twice. When I saw him on celebrity apprentice, he defined himself cperfect as a stupid idiot. I really think he has a mental problem because he just doesn't get it !
