How About That Juror?
Chicago - The search continues to identify the "holdout" juror who, on some counts at least, prevented the Blagojevich jury from reaching unanimous verdicts to convict.
Jurors who have been interviewed so far will not identify the juror, other than to say the juror was a female.
FOX Chicago News reported that speculation is centering on juror Jo Ann Chiakulas of Willowbrook, after a second-hand acquaintance said that she has been saying for weeks that she would find Blagojevich not guilty.
Chiakulas is a retired director from the Illinois Department of Public Health.
So is this incompetence on the part of Fitzgerald's Office? Or a plant? Or the most obvious, a coincidence of immense proportions? One has to wonder how forthcoming she was on her jury questionnaire.
