CHICAGO -- Ousted Gov. Rod Blagojevich has spent another two hours on the witness stand at his retrial on corruption charges.
Blagojevich stepped off the stand at midday Friday after focusing on allegations that he tried to shake down a racetrack executive by withholding his signature on a bill that would benefit the horse-racing industry.
Jurors have been sent home for the Memorial Day holiday, and Blagojevich will take the stand again when the trial resumes Tuesday.
As he did on Thursday in his first day of testimony, Blagojevich frequently veered off-topic. The judge intervened several times, telling him to just answer the question at hand.
Blagojevich still hasn't addressed many allegations, including that he attempted to sell or trade President Barack Obama's old Senate seat. Blagojevich denies any wrongdoing.
