Menendez Jury Deadlocked on All Corruption Charges

I guess Menendez' YOLO rhetorical question, "What is a Senator?," really swayed the jurors.

After days of deliberations in New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendezís federal trial on corruption charges, jurors announced Monday that they were deadlocked on each count of the indictment.

U.S. District Judge William Walls ordered the jury to keep deliberating, though the impasse is a promising sign for Menendez.

The embattled Democrat faces 20 years in prison if convicted. He previously vowed not to resign if convicted, and Senate Democrats have given no indication that they would join with Republicans in voting to expel him from the chamber.
