(CNN) - The date for round two in the Rod Blagojevich courtroom drama could be decided Thursday at a hearing.
Lawyers are scheduled to get together at a Chicago, Illinois, federal courtroom where they could decide the date for the retrial of Blagojevich.
Blagojevich was found guilty last week of lying to the FBI, but escaped convictions on 23 other counts in a trial seen as a partial victory for the former governor.
The jury, which deliberated for 14 days, said it was hung on the counts against him and the counts against the former governor's brother, Robert Blagojevich.
Patrick Fitzgerald should drop it already and don't waste taxpayer money retrying the case.
Blagojevich why don't you use all that energy to do something positive for your future...stop trying to defend the impossible and move on .....with your life ...you did a wrong thing and now you are trying to denied it....when they have phone tapes and conversations that are very convincing.....!
Democratic culture of corruption: Blago, Rangel, Maxine Waters, Spitzer, Edwards, McGrevy, Frank, Dodd, even Kennedy.....on and on and on, they cheat on their wives, their taxes and the american people. Throw these bums out!!!
Why not just cut his hair and save the taxpayers a lot of money.That would be sufficient punishment.
I don't know who came up with the hung jury thing but----
I love Chicago politics.It would make a good soap opera, especially if all the big names who were suppose to testify had to come to court and been called as witnesses as they should have.
When the fail to meat your burdens of proof just hold a new trial.
Botom line is we have the evidence to convict this man but to use that evidence you would have to bring down a few top white house officials.
What a waste of money this time it will be taxpayers footing the bill for his defense.Look the guy is a slimeball but he diddn't do any more than most politicians do all the time including the president.He just bragged a little too much and got caught.Fitzgerald didn't have a case and the jurors saw right through it.You can convict someone in the media but in a courtroom you need facts.
WASTE of taxpayers money! Unless , the federal prosecutors really call the powers to be ( Emmanual and such) which won't happen , because this Attorney General is in the pocket of Obama.
A complete waste of taxpayer money on this witch hunt. There was no quid pro quo, where's the meat in the Government's case?
These attorneys are the biggest idiots, they need to be gotten...what a waste of time and money....just like Bill Clinton's stuff with Kenneth Starr....what a nonsense....These attorneys do not have any kind of business....In India they call "Onion Selling Attorneys". The same is here....no money....just nag....what a pity, America...enough is enough....ok, stop these idiotic Attorneys this stuff...they do not absolutely find any other work....so this.................
Bloggo the biggest dope in politics................and with the dopes we have in politics thats saying something
