Clemens trial: Jury selection resumes

Del Quentin Wilber continues to report on the Roger Clemens perjury trial.

After a three-day hiatus, jury selection resumes Monday morning in the trial of Roger Clemens, the former star pitcher accused of lying to Congress about taking performance-enhancing drugs.

Before we start exploring the nitty-gritty of today’s crop of potential jurors, I thought I would point out a story that ran Sunday about the selection process.

Among my favorite moments so far, all reported in that story, were the response of Roger Clemens’ attorney to a potential juror who said she was a Redskins fan; a juror who said baseball players all spit and scratch themselves; and another who disclosed only going to Nationals Park to catch the opera.
Oh, and federal prosecutors have asked many potential panelists to rate their sporting zeal on a scale of one to 10.
