The jury in the retrial of ex-Ill. Gov. Rod Blagojevich is still working way.

On Thursday, on the fifth day of deliberations, the jury asked U.S. District Judge James Zagel to clarify legal language in jury instructions on 10 wire fraud counts, eight of which deal with allegations that Blagojevich tried to sell the Senate seat vacated by President Obama, USA Today reported.

USA Today reported that it was only the second note passed to the judge from the jury of 11 women and one man since deliberations began last Friday.
