The clown show never ends

Tuesday, Nov 13, 2012

* They’re coming out of the woodwork, campers

Sam Adam Jr., the boisterous onetime attorney to former Gov. Rod Blagojevich and R&B singer R. Kelly, told the Chicago Sun-Times Tuesday he is considering a run for U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s seat.

“My wife and I are thinking about it,” Adam told the Sun-Times. “I am a fighter. They may have said I wasn’t qualified, but they can’t say I don’t fight.” […]

Adam said he would have to give up his law practice. He recently set up a new firm with Victor Henderson. The two represent Cook County Commissioner William Beavers, who is to go to trial on Dec. 3. They also represented indicted – but reelected – state Rep. Derrick Smith, a West Side Democrat. Along with Ed Genson and Adam’s father, Adam represented Kelly in an underaged sex case. Kelly was acquitted. Adam gave openings and closings in the first trial against Blagojevich, which ended in a deadlocked jury on 23 of 24 counts.

“Best” Sam Adam, Jr. campaign slogan wins a night of adult beverages on me.

…Adding… Oy

Over the last few months, Blagojevich has fought off boredom with books about former presidents, Adam said.

“He and my father [defense attorney Sam Adam Sr.] now are studying Ulysses S. Grant. He sends presidential books every month, and now they’re up to Grant,” Adam Jr. told WBBM Newsradio.

“Blago is the son my father never had. He’s the intellectual,” he added.

Sam Adam Jr. wins the contest.

    There hasn’t been a new black us rep from Illinois in 17 years, I can’t blame the candidates that will run for coming forward. Will be interesting if halvorson or any other white candidates come forward and try to do what a jewish congressman from memphis did successfully 6 years ago and thats win the seat when several black candidates divide that vote.

    This guy however is a clown.
