A U.S. Supreme Court decision reversing the jury verdict against McDonnell has given fresh hope to one-time public officials convicted elsewhere. With varying success, ex-politicians from one-time Chicago Mayor Rod Blagojevich to former U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez to two former top New York state lawmakers have tried to use the high court's ruling in McDonnell to at worst win a new trial and at best force an end to their prosecutions.
