64. I think he has enough to convict right now. I think they are working for more.
I think they are scrambling at this point to get enough to try and convict on the Senate thing. I have no doubt they'd like to get him on it, but just having a tape of Blago talking about selling that seat is not gonna be enough (I don't think, anyway) for them to get a conviction.

Tony Rezco (remember THAT name?) has given them a LOT, according to the rumors, and if there are any bodies buried he's in a position to know where they are (figure of speech only--I am not accusing anyone of murder!) As a fundraiser for Blag, he is certainly somebody that Fitz was interested in turning.

There was a lot reported in the media during Rezco's trial that was thrown out here during the Primaries as damning to Obama. What the Illinois folks kept saying at the time was the unnamed politician they were talking about was not Obama--that there was nothing there--but that Blago needed to be worried.

When they DO finally go after the conviction my prediction will be they settle for the basic corruption, conspiracy, and graft charges with maybe some mail fraud or insider trading thrown in for good measure.
