Our pal Blago

From the Chicago Tribune, on the Blago verdict:

The holdout juror was previously a director of teen counseling at the Chicago Urban League.
Cheryle Robinson Jackson was appointed on October 2006 to be the first female president and CEO in the 90-year history of the Chicago Urban League.  Prior to her appointment, Jackson served in the administration of Illinois Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich, most recently as deputy chief of staff of communications and before that as communications director and chief press secretary, making her both the first woman and African American to hold the position in the state’s history.
 

A political appointee from the Blago administration on the Blago jury.

Do ya think the US Attorney dropped the ball on this one? How did this woman ever get on the jury?
