The jury is out, literally. Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich today was convicted today on 17 of the original 20 counts against surrounding the allegations he tried to sell President Obama's Senate seat after the president resigned to begin the presidency. Blago is still claiming is innocence, but the writing is the on the wall, he'll be going to jail for a long time. The 10 counts of wire fraud he was charged with could lead to 200 years in jail alone. Being a high level person though, he'll only be jail for 10-20 years, if even that. When his sentence is revealed, you'll find it here.
