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.

    rod was found innocent the first trial and the second was not justice. any political person especially those who have a humorous personality make statements out of the blue. mostly to seem to just dare themselves to do it. i hope the judge will not sentence him for any time to do. rod is a good person and very interesting with his politics . hang in there rod ……nat
