CHICAGO (Reuters) - A jury in Chicago on Monday convicted former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich on 17 of 20 counts in a corruption trial, including on charges he tried to swap President Barack Obama's former Senate seat for personal gain.

 

Blagojevich, a two-term Democrat thrown out of office in 2009, was found guilty on all but three counts of attempting to secure personal benefit and campaign funds in exchange for appointing a senator to fill the seat vacated by Obama after he was elected president in 2008.
