No surprise that federal jurors in the Rod Blagojevich corruption trial haven’t reached a verdict yet after five days considering they have 24 counts to sift through.

Wednesday will mark the start of the sixth day of deliberations. Don’t be surprised if a verdict doesn’t come til Friday at the earliest, and more likely, next week.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that 11 of counts center around an alleged plan to sell the senate seat vacated by President Obama.

Also on Wednesday, attorneys in the case will meet with the judge to talk about the possibility of jurors considering seizing Blago’s property if he’s found guilty, the Associated Press reported.

Meanwhile, Sun-Times columnist Michael Sneed reports that the ex-governor spent Tuesday celebrating his daughter Amy’s 15th birthday.

“The family is being very low key and pretty much staying behind closed doors,”a source said, according to Sneed. “Rod is still jogging, he is not writing a book about his trial experience and other than talking to his lawyers . . . no friends are visiting. After all, all his friends testified against him.”
