Blago Lawyer Won't Pick Up the Phone

Sam Adam Jr., a former defense lawyer for R. Kelly, is now working for Rod Blagojevich, the embattled Illinois governor. What's his advice for his wiretapped client? Don't pick up the phone!

Given that the Feds had been wiretapping Blago, Adams wisely refused to talk to Roland Burris on the phone. Burris, the man whom Blagojevich controversially picked to replace Barack Obama in the Senate, allowed that the fact was "curious" when testifying before an Illinois House panel which met to discuss Blagojevich's impeachment for allegedly trying to sell Obama's seat.
