"A federal jury Monday convicted Rod Blagojevich
of sweeping corruption, putting an end to a tragicomic legal and political drama that brought downIllinois' showy and would-be populist former governor.
"In its 10th day of deliberations, the 11-woman, one-man jury convicted Blagojevich of several shakedown attempts, including allegations that he brazenly tried to sellPresident Barack Obama
's oldU.S. Senate seat in 2008. The decisive verdict came less than a year after the first jury to hear the case found him guilty of one criminal charge but deadlocked on the rest."
