The saga of the Illinois governor who tried to sell Obama's former senate seat to the highest bidder has, perhaps, come to an end. An Illinois jury spent 14 days deadlocked on 23 of the 24 corruption counts facing ol' Rod Blagojevich, but they all could agree that, yes, he could be convicted of "making false statements" to the FBI.

Priceless quote that sums up the situation in Chicago: "Mr. Blagojevich, 53 and a Democrat, was the fourth Illinois governor in recent memory to face the possibility of prison."
