6. This time the jury was probably screened more carefully by the prosecutors

to insure that Blagojevich serves time. The first try was a failure. Takes these prosecutors twice. I think Blagojevich did very little that was actually illegal. Somebody needs to keep a close eye on Rahm Emmanuel. That is my personal opinion.
Meanwhile, in my opinion, the Daly brothers organized the Chicago parking meter deal which deserves to be investigated.
Two governors jailed for corruption -- Siegelman and Daly. Meanwhile, far more serious corruption that has nearly bankrupted the country continues unpunished.
This was a show trial, and it took them two tries. I wonder who was on that jury.
I don't know Blagojevich, and I suspect I would not like him if I did. But why is he going to jail while Bush and Cheney (who "accidentally?" shot another man) are not serving time for their role in torture? As far as I know, Blagojevich did not actually do much of anything.
Please correct me if you know of anything Blagojevich did other than talk about the committing the kind of corruption that passes for government in our country every day.
Exchanging favors. Isn't that what fuels our democracy at the highest levels? Blagojevich was all too direct in talking about that fact.
