Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, a Democrat who was ousted from office after federal corruption charges were lodged against him, has lined up two more of his three allotted attorneys and may seek approval of a fourth at next month's hearing in the Northern District of Illinois. The ex-governor has hired Chicago criminal defense lawyer Samuel F. Adam and his son Samuel E. Adam, said attorney Sheldon Sorosky, who has served as Blagojevich's lead attorney since the federal complaint was filed in December.
