SHARE Ex-Blago attorney running for Jesse Jackson Jr.'s job? Undecided until he’s through with public corruption trial

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.
