Update x2: CSJ contributor Monte Lemont got some pictures of Blagojevich when he got home from court. See the gallery below.
Four television helicopters hovered over Ravenswood Manor and a dozen television cameras waited for former Gov. Rod Blagojevich to come out of his home to head to court and hear the verdict on his corruption trial. A crowd of neighbors – or attention getters, it was hard to tell which – rushed him as he walked down his front steps. Yelling, “We love you Rod! You’re the best!” his group of half a dozen adoring fans held off the media until he reached his SUV and drove off to court.
