"Menendez jury deadlocks, judge orders them to keep trying to reach a verdict"
-widespread headline

i'm sure that Menedez is no different from any other New Jersey political crook...all parties, all sexes, race, age, wealth not a problem.
The important thing is if the jury is hung, that means there is enough time for the new Democratic New jersey governor to appoint a Senator when Menendez flames out. Or would you rather have the abominable Chris Christie appoint one of his pals?

NJ politics strikes me as prone to corruption. But when the Supremes overturned Va. Gov McDonnell's conviction, it seems like they raised the bar for proving corruption (unless IOKIYAR).

I would guess a hung jury now is as good as an acquittal. Post-McDonnell, it seems unlikely they'd go after Menendez again, but what do I know?
