(Newser) – If you were locked in a room for 11 days talking about nothing but Rod Blagojevich, you'd probably be a little confused, too. The jurors in his corruption case told the judge today they can't reach agreement on some of the 24 counts against him and wondered what they should do next, reports AP. Blago pleaded not guilty to all those counts, including allegations that he tried to sell the vacated Senate seat of Barack Obama. The judge is seeking clarification on which ones are stumping them before he offers advice.
