| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Sam Adam Jr., once an attorney to Rod Blagojevich, has said he'd be interested in running to replace Jesse Jackson Jr.
Reached this week, however, Adam said he had a little something he had to take care of first.
The defense lawyer is prepping for a federal criminal trial -- against Cook County Commissioner William Beavers.
That trial starts on Monday.
Adam also represents state Rep. Derrick Smith a West Side Democrat who was indicted for allegedly taking a $7,000 bribe.
"I'm not going to decide anything right now," Adam said.
