Former Democratic Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich reacted with shock Monday after he was found guilty on 17 of 20 counts, including trying to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacated by President Barack Obama.

"Patti and I are very disappointed in the outcome," the former governor told reporters following the verdict. "I, frankly, am stunned."
