Hmm, I can see "disappointed." Maybe even "a little surprised." But did Rod Blagojevich, the former Illinois governor facing a stack of corruption charges, really think he was going to get completely clear of the prosecution?
Of course, a lot of the jurors really seemed to like Blago. From the Sun-Times:
A fourth juror — who had laughed at many of Blagojevich’s jokes on the witness stand — said she tried to give him every benefit of the doubt but that the evidence was overwhelming.
“He proved himself guilty beyond any reasonable doubt,” that juror said. “He kept saying ‘Do it!’ ‘Push it!’ ‘Get it done!’ That’s where he crossed the line.”
