Jury selection resumes in Blago retrial Monday

Jury selection will resume Monday in the second corruption trial of former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich.

Twenty of the 150 prospective jurors were questioned by U.S. District judge James Zagel last Thursday.

Finding an impartial jury for the retrial may be more difficult because of the high profile nature of the former governor's first trial. It ended with the jury deadlocked on all but one of 24 counts.

Blagojevich now faces 20 charges.
