"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

Listened to the jury foreman on a radio talk show this morning. He said that as far as the two most onerous indictment charges (racketeering/conspiracy), the vote was consistently 11-1 to convict. The lone holdout wouldn't change her mind.
He also said that he believes the government should retry Blago on the hung jury counts. The prosecutors told the judge that the government will indeed retry the no verdict counts, and a hearing is scheduled next week to set a new trial date. This bodes ill for Blago. The Chicago Feds have a conviction rate of 95%. Blago will be sentenced for lying to the FBI - and any other additional guilty verdicts - at the close of the retrial.
