No word from the jury as deliberations continue. That means the action in this story returns to the Federal Building cafeteria.
Rod and Patti Blagojevich and their attorneys, minus the Adams, huddle at one end of the cafeteria. The only plug I could find for my phone charger was next to their table (honest), so Rod and I trade running stories for a while.
A Channel 5 producer takes out a pack of Trivial Pursuit cards on the 1980s and the contest is on. The ex-governor does well, especially in the sports and music categories.
At the other end of the cafeteria, Robert Blagojevich, his wife, and son sit with their attorneys. As usual, not a word is exchanged between the two brothers. Their relationship, Robert’s attorney tells me, is nonexistent. Robert does not join in the Trivial Pursuit game.
So the wait goes on, with hopes of a verdict today dimming by the moment.
