Okay, first, the facts as I understand them
-Obama becomes president-elect
-Blago is caught by the feds saying "I have this thing, it's (bleep)ing golden."
-Blago goes on the View, touches the women on the shoulder to show the audience he is human, various comments surface about his hair. He also mentions
in a round about way that he is not allowed to call a witness to the stand, namely Obama and Emmanuel.
Blago gets arrested
The media runs stories on Blago's case, mentions that he is making inappropriate nosies in court, the judge has to silence him; he also brings his
children to court
The court verdict is in: out of the 24 counts against him, the jury is hung on 12, does not deliberate on 11 of them, is guilty on one charge of lying
to the feds, supposedly 5 years ago, and the issue the media flouted, the selling of the senate seat, was a hung jury 11-1, with one woman being the
lone dissenter who "just didn't see what we all saw," said one jury, Erik Sarnello.
So, the prosecutors will retry the case, which is laughable since that means they have to dig up new dirt on him, otherwise they risk putting him in a
double jeopardy situation, making this court case almost as ridiculous as the federal government vs. Arizona, but that issue is a tangent, so sticking
to this Blago case, the question is, what do you see as happening in the future? Will he be convicted? Will Blago dish out some dirt on Obama and Tony
Rezko's ties, possibly also involving Rahm Emmanuel, or is Blago just going to get a slap on the wrist due to another "lone dissenter" and that
will be that?
