FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

SENATE CANDIDATE ANDY MARTIN RECEIVES ENTHUSIASTIC SUPPORT FOR HIS CRITICISM OF SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN

ILLINOIS REPUBLICANS REJECT “BELTWAY ENDORSEMENTS” FOR MARK KIRK

(CHICAGO)(August 30, 2009) “The story behind the story of my criticism of John McCain is as interesting as the letter to McCain itself,” Andy Martin said Sunday. “Here is a sampling of positive support for my letter to McCain:

I totally agree. & I’m a staunch republican.
—–
I totally agree with your observations of McCain’s behavior in 2008 & 2009 – it’s time for him to go as it is nauseating how much he has been sucking up to Democrats since last years’ defeat! Keep up the great work!
—–

This is excellent. I will be passing this around to many, many churches and religious organizations across the State. Keep one like that coming about once a week.
—–

“And, of course,” Martin continued, “some people did not like what I had to say; the truth stings:

Please remove me from your e-mail list…State Representative JoAnn Osmond and delegate for John McCain.

“What is the bottom line? Please consider four (4) points that my supporters feel are important.

“First, we are in this race to defeat Kirk. That is not an easy task. Kirk is disliked all across Illinois, but he is trying to lie his way into a primary win. He is an Obama stalking horse in the Republican Party. Obamicans are giving Kirk Beltway cash to defeat opposition from Illinois Republican Party primary voters.

“Second, Illinoisans are rejecting outside influence from Beltway insiders. In fact, Kirk’s ‘endorsements’ from Beltway bandits make my case precisely: Kirk is not the candidate of Illinois Republicans, he is the representative of the Beltway to Illinoisans. Kirk and his Washington backers have democracy backwards.

“Third, my campaign is the only credible statewide campaign with a chance of defeating Kirk. I am in second place, a strong second (which is why Kirk-Obama keep attacking me). Moving into first place will not be easy. Kirk has a lot of ‘dirty dollars’ to spend.

“We do not have the money we need. But we are the only campaign with the structure and order and credibility to catch Kirk by February 2nd, or to even spend campaign cash if we receive it. Period.

“Fourth, although we are going to run a tough campaign, we have always offered to run a fair campaign. My earlier letter to Chairman Pat Brady has not elicited a response. I asked Brady to run an honest campaign so everyone could feel there had been a fair fight and support the winner. Brady has not responded. Brady is an avowed Kirk supporter.

“Nevertheless, despite Brady’s support for Kirk, we remain open to negotiating the conditions for a level playing field in the primary and a fair campaign. I am not going to break down Pat Brady’s door, but my own door is always open to negotiation and conciliation.

“Finally, you may be interested to learn that the toughest debate about the McCain letter came within in my own campaign. We had a series of conference calls to discuss how critical the letter to McCain should be. I did not want to tone down the language. John McCain is living in a Beltway dream world; so is Kirk. We need to send Washington’s Republican Party hucksters a strong message: stop trying to buy and broker the people’s right to vote with the corrupt cash of Beltway insiders. Illinoisans won’t buy it.

“Mark Kirk has no support in Illinois, no political support and no meaningful financial support. He is a career politician who represents Washington to Illinois, not Illinois to Washington. On February 2, 2010 we will change that orientation and put Illinoisans first.

“Please join my campaign and support us financially. Kirk has millions. Our campaign treasury would not even pay for the lobster and liquor Kirk is buying on Sunday. We need financial support.

“But just because we don’t have the cash, doesn’t mean we don’t have the heart. We will defeat mark Kirk and launch a New Republican Party in Illinois on February 2nd,” Martin stated.

Andy Martin slams senator John McCain for endorsing infanticide, gun control and surrender in Iraq

August 29, 2009

Martin says McCain’s Sunday endorsement of Mark Kirk is an act of infamy that will lead to McCain’s defeat by Arizonans in 2010. “McCain is not all there,” Martin says. “Or if he is all there, there is no ‘there,’ there.’ McCain is an embarrassment to the future of the Republican Party. Perhaps it is not surprising he is in bed with Mark Kirk.”

Re: Endorsement of Mark Kirk

Less than a year ago, I remained a loyal Republican and voted for you despite your disastrously incompetent campaign for president. I am therefore deeply disappointed to see you coming to Illinois to endorse Barack Obama’s favorite Republican for the U.S. Senate, my primary opponent Mark Kirk. The progressive incapacitation of your judgment which you manifested in 2008 appears to be worsening in 2009.

Maybe it is time for the people of Arizona to retire you in 2010. I plan to ask them to do so. Based on your endorsement of Mark Kirk it is clear you are incapable of being an effective representative for the future of the Republican Party. In rejecting your 2008 campaign, voters showed more insight and intelligence than some Republicans may have anticipated.

At the beginning of September, 2008, barely twelve months ago, you had a narrow lead. Then, as the nation confronted an unexpected economic crisis, you collapsed. First you were “Mr. Indispensable,” and had to “suspend” your campaign. Then you were the useless adjunct at a White House meeting. Finally, after fumbling away your narrow lead, you “unsuspended” your campaign and returned to the campaigning, all within 96 hours. Watching you implode was a sad spectacle.

Like almost every American I respect your wartime service. Taking the oath of enlistment was also a proud day for me. But just because you served honorably decades ago does not mean we have to respect your irascibility, flawed judgment and embarrassingly obvious political incompetence. There comes a point when we have to separate the wartime service from the peacetime reality.

I respect your right to endorse a three-legged dog for senator. That is a privilege you defended for every American. I also do not believe in rigid orthodoxy. There should be room for reasoned debate in the Republican Party.

But the problem with Mr. Kirk is not that he is an independent Republican, but rather that he is an extremely liberal Democrat.

In my opinion, you have never shown any shame or remorse for your pathetic performance as a presidential candidate last year. Today you keep hogging the camera and keep blathering on, without any apparent reflection on your dismal performance barely a year ago. Now you are coming to Illinois to try to sell a Democrat to Republican primary voters. At the end of your career, your lack of judgment is making you look like a doddering idiot. You can rest assured I will come to Arizona and tell Arizonans you need a well-deserved rest. It is time for you to step down from politics.

Take a look at Kirk’s record:

1. You have a strong Second Amendment voting record. Mr. Kirk is more anti-Second Amendment than even Barack Obama. Kirk is currently sponsoring some of the most anti-gun legislation pending in Congress. Do you endorse Kirk’s proposals? Of course not. Are you going to ignore them?

2. You ran as a pro-life Republican. Mr. Kirk voted for infanticide. Do you now endorse infanticide, or do pro-life issues have no current role in your politics, until you start running for reelection in Arizona? Abortion is a complex issue and I grapple with it on a regular basis. But I do not have any doubt that Kirk’s support for infanticide is rejected by almost every American. How can you expect Arizona voters to reelect an old man who can’t even keep the issue of abortion straight?

3. “The surge.” Barely a year ago, you were endlessly attacking Barack Obama for opposing the “surge” in Iraq. Mark Kirk was—if my memory serves me correctly—a Republican in Congress, and he voted against the surge. If, Kirk, who claims to be an “intelligence officer,” was so wrong about something which you presented as straightforward as the surge, how could you support an opponent of the surge and expect us to have any confidence in Kirk’s judgment? Or your own?

Was it wrong for Obama to oppose the surge, but all right for Kirk to do so? Are you really that two-faced? If so, now you know why no one outside the Beltway trusts people like you or Kirk.

You were right on the surge, Kirk was egregiously wrong. Another one of “McCain’s forgotten issues?” Do you have memory problems, Senator? Or does your mendacity know no limits?

4. Mr. Kirk refuses to release his military records. I have asked him to sign a waiver to expedite release. We all know where you were during the Viet-Nam war. We saw you come home.
There is no doubt of your heroism and commitment.

But what about Kirk? He recently claimed to have been a “warrior” in two wars. Sadly, Mr. Kirk is an armchair warrior with a Walter Mitty complex. Kirk dishonors the proud uniform of a Navy officer. Now you are assisting him in dishonoring the uniform you wore with such distinction. It is a sad day for the Navy when an authentic Navy hero endorses a Navy imposter.

If Kirk had a genuine military record, instead of a vacuous paper maché career that he has used to preen at Navy expense, I would be the first to salute him. But I asked him to waive privacy issues so his record can be made public, and he has refused. Kirk is an imposter and your endorsement makes you a party to endorsing an imposter. For shame.

5. Sadly, you are not the only person with memory problems. Mark Kirk has been in congress for almost a decade, and he has served as a career politician for decades. But like the French prefect of police who “discovers” gambling in Casablanca, Kirk only “discovered’ corruption in Illinois last month, when he announced his campaign for Governor of Illinois. Oh, I’m sorry, he said he was running for Senator, on a platform based on fighting corruption in Illinois state government.

Actually, you have fought corruption in Washington. I saw no evidence that Kirk was ever at your side. Kirk has never criticized Barack Obama, or criticized any corruption in Washington. He won’t take on the crooks right under his nose, but he wants us to believe he will be a long-distance corruption fighter in Springfield? Kirk’s arguments are an insult to the intelligence of any sentient voter.

Kirk is part of a “Combine” in Illinois, a two-party corruption machine that controls the careers of both Democrats and pliant Republicans. Before you endorse Kirk tomorrow, I will offer you a challenge: try and find any newspaper clips or stories in which Kirk attacks Illinois corruption or the Combine before July, 2009. There are none.

Kirk says he wants to “clean up Springfield,” but he is running to serve in Washington. But of course, like yourself, Kirkie will say or do anything to keep their face in front of the
media.

6. Finally, Kirk has rumors swirling around him that are going to allow the Democrats to bring down his candidacy next year. Illinois has a history of senate candidates with personal embarrassments. That is why Kirk’s operatives have been trying to harass and disrupt my campaign. They are terrified that the Democrats are following what I say, so they can unload on Kirk next summer.

Returning to my original observation, many loyal Republicans voted for you. I also led a media operation that sought to expose the truth about Barack Obama’s past; my efforts cost him millions of votes. In spite of yourself and your incompetent tactics, we almost elected you president.

But since making an old fool of yourself in the last campaign, you have shown no remorse or shame or embarrassment. You act as though your own role in the campaign has been erased. Instead, your cowardly operatives want to “smear the woman,” Sarah Palin, who carried water for you last year and is now seduced and abandoned in 2009.

During the 1952 Republican National Convention, Illinois Senator Everett Dirksen made an immortal remark about one of the candidates. Dirksen said “You led us down the road to defeat.” The same can be said of your own embarrassing behavior in 2008. You led us down the road to defeat. You led us down the road to defeat unnecessarily and incompetently. And almost immediately you were hogging the limelight again. No shame, no reflection, no remorse for your doddering performance.

As you come to Illinois to endorse a man who wants to confiscate guns and kill living babies, and who voted against your beloved surge, I prefer to close my admonition with something Joseph Welch said during the Army-McCarthy hearings and direct that ancient remonstrance at you: “Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you no sense of decency?”

Your coming to Illinois to endorse a Democratic party stalking horse running in the Republican primary is an indecent act. I hope the people of Arizona put an end to your political career next year. You are an embarrassment to yourself, and to the United States Senate. It is time for you to go, and it is time for you to reconsider and not come to Illinois tomorrow. Your appearance with Mark Kirk is an act of infamy that will shadow your own reelection campaign.

Respectfully submitted,

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

SENATE CANDIDATE ANDY MARTIN FILES SUIT AGAINST ORCHESTRATED CRIMINAL ACTIVITY ORIGINATING IN MARYLAND AND DIRECTED AT HIS SENATE CAMPAIGN IN ILLINOIS

MARTIN SAYS THE CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE IS OVERWHELMING THAT HE IS THE TARGET OF UNLAWFUL HARASSMENT BY EITHER MARK KIRK OR BARACK OBAMA’S OPERATIVES, OR BOTH

“BIRTH CERTIFICATE TAPES” HAVE BEEN STOLEN BY MARK KIRK OR BARACK OBAMA’S OPERATIVES, CANDIDATE SAYS

MARTIN SAYS THAT IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY MARK KIRK IS A STALKING HORSE FOR BARACK OBAMA

(CHICAGO)(August 27, 2009) The liberal Washington Post finds itself snared in a major Illinois and Washington political scandal as a U. S. Senate candidate in Illinois files suit against the Post and one of its reporters.

“The Washington Post is now directly implicated in what is clearly criminal activity directed at me in Illinois, and being orchestrated from Maryland,” Andy Martin announced Thursday afternoon. “The lawsuit has been turned over to Federal Express and will be filed and docketed Friday morning. The Post will owe the people of Illinois, as well as its own readers, a full explanation.

“When I tell people in Illinois that the Washington media are corrupt, and are controlled by agents of Obama’s dirty tricks squads, they have a hard time digesting the enormous sleaziness in Washington. Well, now we have criminal activity in Maryland being used to harass my campaign in Illinois.

“Why? Because Mark Kirk and/or Barack Obama’s operatives or both are terrified I am going to win Obama’s former U. S. Senate seat and shut down his socialist regime; Kirk is just a stalking horse for Obama in the Republican Party.

“They have stolen my tapes in which I discuss Obama’s missing birth certificate and missing college records,” Martin said. “Someone is awfully interested in preventing those tapes from seeing the light of day. Now that everyone—everyone—is in court, a judge can sort out the facts and law. I am confident we can prevail.”

The lawsuit includes defendants in Maryland, the Washington Post, Oklahoma, Florida and Illinois.

Washington Post linked to criminal harassment of Illinois U.S. Senate candidate

August 24, 2009

Andy Martin says Barack Obama’s dirty tricks operation is trying to block release of Martin’s tapes which analyze in detail the defects in Obama’s birth certificate and college records. Obama’s ongoing obsession with Martin confirms Martin’s claim that Obama fears Martin in the U. S. Senate. “This looks like a Rahm Emanuel/David Axelrod/Mark Kirk slime effort that is backfiring big-time,” Martin said. “This is a mini-Watergate: missing tapes, criminal activity, media cover-ups. What a menu.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

(CHICAGO)(August 24, 2009) The liberal Washington Post finds itself snared in a major Illinois and Washington political scandal as a Post reporter claims he was “tipped off” by a crooked Maryland businessman concerning a fraudulent lawsuit the crook filed in a Maryland court against Illinois corruption-fighter Andy Martin.

“The Washington Post is now directly implicated in criminal activity directed at me in Maryland,” Martin announced Monday afternoon. “I spent hours on the phone with a reporter. Gradually, some of the truth emerged. My letter to the Post is part of this release and is self-explanatory. The Post owes the people of Illinois, as well as its own readers, a full explanation.

“When I tell people in Illinois that the Washington media are corrupt, and are controlled by agents of Obama’s dirty tricks squads, they have a hard time digesting the enormous sleaziness in Washington. Well, now we have criminal activity in Maryland being used to harass my campaign in Illinois. Why? Because Obama is terrified I am going to win his U. S. Senate seat and shut down his socialist regime.

“I was the first one to predict that Obama was a new Chavez.
Every accusation I made about Obama has been proven true.

UKSq2oJ0W1c&feature=related

“My work with Fox News is still roiling the media. Sean Hannity was ‘silenced’ a couple of weeks ago when a program he wanted to rebroadcast was shut down by Rupert Murdock’s Obamathugs. Hannity meekly complied. The truth suffered. So much for Fox News.

“My Washington, DC conference on Barack Obama’s missing birth certificate has now been targeted by the thugs in the White House. They are trying to suppress my tape with criminal activity using a small-time crook like Scott Shirley. The Washington tapes are being suppressed because Obama is obsessed with my research into his past.

“The Washington Post was asked to ‘muddy the waters’ by using the typical Obama approach, smearing Andy Martin with irrelevant information instead of focusing attention on the missing/stolen tapes. Well people are wise to Obama’s smears, and the Washington Post’s smears are only going to focus attention on the theft of my property, the missing tapes.

“Obama’s efforts to harass me and undermine my senate campaign have now corrupted the Washington Post. We have the most exciting ‘reform’ Republican campaign in the nation and it driving Obama’s Chicago crime syndicate hoodlums in the White House crazy. The mainstream, pro-Obama media are promoting Mark Kirk, but Kirk is being rejected by Illinois voters. I am going to be the Republican candidate against the Obama regime, and I am going to defeat the Democrat,” Martin said.

Martin anticipates filing suit against Obama’s dirty tricksters Wednesday in an Illinois court.

Mr. Emilio Garcia-Ruiz, Metro Editor
Washington Post
via fax (202) 334-

Dear Ms. Spayd and Gentlemen:

I spent several hours today on the phone with a Post reporter in the Rockville bureau. Originally he told me he had wandered into court this morning and seen an interesting case. Not aware that he was lying, I then faxed him 85 pages of material.

After I indicated I would be contacting you to involve the Post in a major political scandal he called back and claimed his “source” was “Scott Shirley.”

Post Reporter Dan Moore called back and gave me more “fill” concerning the story. His latest version is that he got an e-mail from someone who claimed he had filed a “peace bond” in Montgomery County against a candidate for U. S. Senator in Illinois, and then gratuitously started exhaustively investigating the candidate’s past going back 40 years. Hmmm..

Morse then claims to have “researched” the story by digging into my past and contacting people with obscure relationships to me, none of which matters even remotely bear on the Maryland litigation. Hmmm, again.

Clearly, the Post has either been duped or is being knowingly and willingly used to publish a smear article on me, over the suppression of an Obama tape that was prepared in April concerning his missing birth information.

In other words, because of Mr. Morse’s machinations and his initial lack of candor, the Post is now part of the story. Unless you believe he got an e-mail from someone telling him to write a story about what is facially a fraudulent proceeding in Maryland, and Morse just went off and started investigating. Hmmm, again.

I have asked the Montgomery County State Attorney for a criminal investigation. You need more reporters on this story; Morse is now part of the scandal.

In order to get at the relationship between your reporter and Mr. Scott Shirley, I will be naming the Post and Morse as defendants in a lawsuit arising out of the fraudulent judicial proceedings in Rockville. The Post is now in this miasma up to its neck.

You are welcome to have another reporter, or your legal department, contact me. Mr. Morse is welcome to call me, provided you are on notice he is a potential defendant along with the Post. I do not expect to get to the Shirley/Montgomery/Morse lawsuit until Tuesday, and it may not be filed until as late as Wednesday.

Please understand that I am not suggesting Mr. Morse asked me about anything that is not already in the public domain. What was interesting is that he did “research” orchestrated by my political opponents as part of “researching” a story about an obscure mope, Scott Shirley, who was paid $335 to tape a conference, by virtue of which the Post has now become the pivot in a major political scandal involving the Post and someone inside Obama’s dirt diggers/mud merchants.

Mr. Morse taped most of our conversations, with my consent, and I think you will find listening to the tape informative. I am sure you will be having someone transcribe the tape and I would appreciate a courtesy copy of all of your transcripts.

Please get back to me at your earliest convenience. If I do not hear from you or your attorneys, I will assume you admit the essentials of my allegations and expect to defend the Post in an Illinois Court. (The Post does business in Illinois and is subject to personal jurisdiction there.)

I am flattered that my political opponents go to such extreme lengths to smear me. Now that’s a real story that you should be covering. Maybe Howard Kurtz should investigate why some jerk in Rockville was allegedly sending e-mails to a Post reporter soliciting news coverage for an Illinois U. S. Senate race, and a Post reporter simply fell for the lure, or so he claims.

My friends, we have a mini-Watergate on our hands.

I am suspicious of why the Post would not object to being used as a foil in such a smear operation.

Happy listening (to the tape).

Sincerely yours,

ANDY MARTIN

In the light of his professional fraud, should Hughes step down as the right-wing candidate or U. S. Senator?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

ANDY MARTIN SET TO FILE PROFESSIONAL FRAUD CHARGES AGAINST PATRICK J. HUGHES AT ILLINOIS ARDC

HUGHES IS NOT LICENSED TO PRACTICE LAW, BUT CONTINUES TO BE LISTED AS AN ATTORNEY ON HIS FIRM’S WEB SITE

(CHICAGO)(August 24, 2009) “Pat Hughes” announced last week that he had decided to catapult from volunteering at a pregnancy crisis center to national office. Mr. Hughes has a lot to learn about statewide politics and national office. The first rule: don’t lie. People will tolerate almost anything but lying.

Hughes was “nominated” for his role as a “conservative candidate” at a secret meeting of “conservatives” in Bloomington, Illinois on August 8th. Mr. Hughes’ backers may be embarrassed to learn Hughes is no longer an attorney.

Hughes’ “conservative” backers may also be surprised to learn Monday morning that we will be filing professional fraud charges against Hughes for holding himself out as an attorney after he is no longer an attorney.

During the 2007-2008 presidential campaign, Republicans and conservatives made a big issue (first reported by Andy Martin for http://www.ContrarianCommentary.com, see also “Obama: The Man Behind The Mask”) out of the fact that Barack Obama had surrendered his law license and was no longer eligible to practice law or hold himself out as an attorney.

Illinois Republicans now have an “Obama” of their own: Patrick J. Hughes.

Mr. Hughes, of course, is welcome to run for office even though he is not an attorney. But he is not eligible to lie to Republicans and the public about his status:
https://www.iardc.org/ldetail.asp?id=629694044

Mr. Hughes surrendered his law license, no doubt as a result of conflicts arising out of his role as “General Counsel” at Ocean Atlantic Realty:
http://www.ocean-atlantic.com/team/index.html

Questions: [1] If Hughes is not a licensed attorney any longer, is he still “General Counsel” at Ocean Atlantic? [2] When did he stop being General Counsel at Ocean Atlantic, and when did he surrender his law license? [3] How can he be a General Counsel if he is not a licensed attorney? Questions, questions.

Mr. Hughes owes Republicans prompt and full disclosure of his “questionable” professional status. He should also hire an attorney (a real, licensed attorney, not a bogus attorney such as himself) to advise him how to respond to the professional fraud charges we will be filing on Monday.

Mr. Hughes also claims to be a “real estate developer.” If so, just what real estate is he developing? There is no record of any real estate developing he is doing on his own.

Surely Hughes is not going to base a campaign for statewide office on his calamitous association with “Westbury in Yorkville,” Illinois:
http://www.ocean-atlantic.com/
projects/geography.php?region=2

Westbury is mired in litigation because it has not been built.

Bottom line: Mr. Hughes is engaging in professional fraud and malpractice by allowing his firm (former firm?) to list him as a “General Counsel” when he is no longer licensed to practice law in Illinois. We are going to ask the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission (iardc.org) to impose sanctions on Hughes because of his misconduct.

And this guy wants to run for U. S. Senator? What are the names of the jokers who “endorsed” his candidacy and asked county chairmen to support Hughes as a “mainstream Republican?” Hughes has disgraced himself and his backers within days of announcing.

FOOTNOTE: Because of my corruption-fighting activity I have always been controversial. There is no secret about that. Some judges respect and admire me, many others despise me. But I keep exposing crooked judges, and they don’t like it. So I keep generating controversy.

In 2008, Barack Obama unleashed his dirt diggers and mud merchants on me. All they could come up with was 25 and 35 year-old disputes in which I was the victim of retaliation for exposing corruption in the courts. If you want a senate candidate who has been vetted by the best—the Obama smear machine—I was investigated by Obama’s smear merchants. They found nothing they could use except old controversies involving my exposure of political corruption. I’m proud of that fact.

By comparison, the fact that Mr. Hughes would play games with his professional status marks him as a complete political moron. He should quit before he endures further embarrassment and makes laughingstocks out of the “Smoke-Filled Room Nine,” who have now made fools of themselves by recommending his candidacy. Mr. Hughes needs to get a good lawyer to help with the ARDC problem. (I know one in case he asks.)

And now you know why they call http://www.ContrarianCommentary.com “The Internet Powerhouse.”

You also know why Mark Kirk trembles every time he hears my name.

You also know why Andy McKenna is no longer Chairman of the Illinois Republican Party.

Not bad for a corruption fighter. Over forty years after we began, we still nail the bad guys.

We have a hammer, and we’re ready to head for Washington.

And now you know who you should support as the Real Republican for U. S. Senator. It isn’t Kirkie.

Who do you want to tackle Mark Kirk in the primary?

Illinois Republican leader Pat Brady is asked to hold open primary for U. S. Senator

August 23, 2009

Andy Martin says there should be a “housecleaning” at Republican Party headquarters. Martin says illicit Republican Party support for Mark Kirk has created a toxic situation that will lead the entire ticket to defeat in November, 2010. Martin says he is the best candidate for Senator because his leadership role is being challenged by both extreme right-wing and extreme left-wing Republicans who oppose his candidacy. “I’m the man in the middle,” says Martin. “The real Republican.”

Pat Brady
Illinois Republican Chairman
205 W. Randolph Street
Chicago, IL 60606
via fax (312) 201-0181

Dear Pat:

I would like to extend my best wishes on your selection as Chairman of the Illinois Republican Party.

I am sure we are going to have our differences in the days ahead, possibly even strong differences of opinion. But we should be able to disagree on an agreeable basis.

Andy McKenna could never do that. McKenna was unalterably opposed to me. In the end McKenna’s hostility towards me cost him his chairmanship. The “Combine” pulled the plug on McKenna’s embarrassing tactics after he forced me to sue for access to the State Fair and national Voter Vault. The Combine was specifically named in my Sangamon County lawsuit. Five days latter, McKenna was unexpectedly and surprisingly gone.

On Thursday, “Republican Day” at the Illinois State Fair, a circuit judge all-but-referred to Republican leaders as “trailer trash.” He called the Party’s management a “trailer park.” Pretty strong words from an otherwise reasonable and mild-mannered judge.

People across the state are noticing the mistreatment I am receiving from the Republican Party leadership, all of which supports Mark Kirk. Voters don’t like the gratuitous abuse inflicted on me one bit. Take it from the judge.

But there is a high compliment in all of the abuse directed at me by Mark Kirk’s supporters and the state party. Kirk’s backers are attacking me because I am the only alternative to Kirk in the primary. While so-called “conservative leaders” fuss and fume on the sidelines, the senate primary is a two-man race between “ultra” left-wing Kirk and “ultra” moderate conservative Martin.

I get jabbed from both sides. The extreme but impotent right met in Bloomington recently, in secret, to choose their “conservative” candidate, because they were afraid their inexperienced patsy would look like an embarrassment next to me.

In other words, Kirk’s supporters and the extreme right were using the same tactics for the same reason: both groups are afraid of my campaign for senator. They know I am neither left nor right. I am a Republican.

Kirk’s extreme left-wing supporters know where the threat to their candidate is coming from. It isn’t coming from “conservative leaders.” It is coming from conservative candidate Andy Martin.

At the County Chairman’s meeting in Springfield, out of the blue and without any provocation on my part, the Party’s resident in-house thug Randy Pollard launched into a diatribe against me. Why? Because Pollard is backing Kirk. And Pollard knows what people across the state know. I am the only real challenger to Kirk.

Kirk’s supporters realize I am the man who can, and probably will, defeat Mark Kirk and bring about the eventual collapse of the Combine. I represent a slightly different version of Peter Fitzgerald, updated for 2010 instead of 1998.

Back to the State Fair. The effort by Republican attorneys (Brian Sheahan, etc.) to have me arrested at the Fair especially disgusted the judge. I stood my ground against McKenna’s weenies such as Sheahan, the police backed off, and the judge ruled in my favor. Not bad work, wouldn’t you agree?

If anyone doubted my legal skills, they got a good demonstration in Springfield. Could Mark Kirk walk into a new courtroom and successfully argue a constitutional claim? He went to law school but no one seriously thinks he could be a lawyer.

Illinoisans are looking for my kind of honesty and openness; Democrats, Republicans and independents crave a real, authentic, tough guy as their U.S. Senator. Someone who can and will stare down the Beltway bad guys, the profiteers, the poseurs on both sides of the political spectrum and the patsies who want to apologize for America’s greatness and generosity? Mark Kirk? It’s silly, isn’t it? After ten years in Congress, Kirk is an embarrassment to Republicans.

As a result of the outrageous attacks Kirk’s supporters launched on me I will file an amended complaint naming new defendants and seeking money damages for the disruption I endured. There was no reason for the harassment by party leaders. Nevertheless, those attacks appear to have backfired.

The individuals who were harassing me unwittingly proved my case. They proved that Kirk’s supporters are afraid of Andy Martin, and no one else. The other “candidates” were allowed to march in and babble for a few minutes. I was too much of a threat to Kirk for Pollard & Co to allow me to speak to party “leaders.” Mark Kirk brags that he has fought in “two wars.” He sure acts timid when Andy is in town.

Maybe Kirk didn’t really fight in two wars. Maybe he just imagines he’s a great fighter. In fact, Walter Mitty and Mark Kirk even look alike. Look at the decade old picture he uses on his congressional web site.

When the circuit judge heard what Republican leaders had done to me at the State Fair, at the second court hearing in two days, he denounced the party’s machinations to silence my campaign. Kirk’s de facto lawyer, John Fogarty, was not a happy camper when he left the Sangamon County Courthouse. Just ask him. He was a whipped puppy. Kirk was fuming. Kirk and Fogarty will be even more unhappy when the lawsuit is amended.

You are an experienced lawyer and you know that when a judge sees an attorney reneging on a settlement reached just the day before, the judge will become very angry, very quickly. That’s what happened Thursday.

The Republican Party’s “General” Counsel (another Mark Kirk-style war hero?), Brian Sheahan, is another nitwit lawyer who needs to be replaced. Sheahan appears to have ginned up the efforts to insult the judge. Sheahan helped embarrass the party with his ridiculous “criminal complaint” against me. Great lawyer that Sheahan. And now he wants to be elected to the General Assembly? What a joke.

It is time to clean house at Republican Party headquarters and get rid of all of the phonies, hangers-on and do nothings. Get them off the payroll. No state party employee has yet paid a price for losing. Make them pay for the defeats Republicans have endured over the last two elections.

Likewise, why should I have to sue for access to the Voter Vault? Who made the decision to lock me out? As a new chairman you should throw open the doors to the Voter Vault and admit the mistake in denying me access.

Does anyone really think denying me equal access to the Voter Vault is going to “save” Kirk? Is Kirk really that weak? That endangered? Is Kirk so precious he’s made out of porcelain? (I happen to think Kirk is that weak. Do his supporters secretly agree with me? Good question.)

If you or a representative wants to talk settlement, I am all ears. Otherwise, we will keep pursuing the Party in court.

You know that I am a firm supporter of SB 600. Direct election of the State Central Committee would in time change the party, but most of all direct election would democratize the Party. The manner in which you were appointed just a couple of hours after McKenna’s resignation suffers from a lack of legitimacy, precisely because the people who chose you are not directly accountable to the voters.

Want to make a big difference and start off your leadership with a bang? Let’s do a news conference and announce your support for SB 600. Nothing would give you a bigger boost. And boost party unity as well. The Democrats do just fine under the same procedures as SB 600; why are Republican leaders afraid to face the voters?

I realize that you support my opponent for Senator. I respect your personal right to support whom you wish. That doesn’t mean that you and I can’t work together, even closely together. We can.

If you call on me for assistance, I will be there to help. What’s wrong with having forty years of insight and experience on your side, along with an independent, “contrarian” viewpoint?

Now for Kirk. Here’s the bottom line. If you use party resources to rig the primary and nominate Kirk, no one will support him in November, 2010. [If you want e-mails from Republicans promising this boycott, just ask. We have them. You and I know no one has to prod people to be against Kirk.]

Kirk is political dead meat.

Tell Kirk he is now on his own. Cut him loose.

People are increasingly wondering whether the Combine chose “Clunker Kirk” as a foil to elect their real choice, Giannoulias, senator. It sure looks that way. Kirk is probably headed to where he truly belongs, an appointment in the Obama administration.

Andy McKenna did tremendous damage to Kirk’s fragile candidacy. Every time McKenna would undermine me, I would ratchet up my opposition to Mark. McKenna energized Kirk’s opponents. If you step into McKenna’s shoes and make the IRP offices and SCC a Kirk campaign headquarters, you will not help Kirk.

Biased leadership never endows the beneficiary with legitimacy.

I sincerely believe Kirk’s candidacy is doomed, and I sincerely believe his political strategy is completely misguided. Don’t tie your leadership to Kirk’s campaign. You don’t have to be stuck with him. If Kirk can’t win an open, honest primary, he can’t beat the Democrats. Face the facts.

And don’t be fooled by the so-called pollsters. Who was the presidential frontrunner in 2007? Rudy Giuliani. He didn’t even make it to the first primary. Some pollsters.

I stand ready to help you, in public or private. Just ask.

I am hard worker. I am a tough fighter. I have over forty years of broadcasting and media experience. I am an honest man who believes in helping Americans achieve a better life. I want a militarily and financially secure nation. And I have a proven record of producing positive action and standing up against corruption. Does Mark Kirk have my record? Be real. That’s why Kirk trembles every time he hears my name.

Put me to work on your team as your next United States Senator.
Let’s win this one for the Gipper. And let’s send Obama a message he will never forget.

Best wishes,

ANDY MARTIN

ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEWS CONFERENCE TODAY IN CHICAGO

ANDY MARTIN CHALLENGES MARK KIRK’S SENATE CAMPAIGN TO “STOP PLAYING POLITICS” WITH HEALTH CARE

MARTIN SAYS KIRK IS TRYING TO CONDUCT A “STEALTH” TOWN HALL MEETING MONDAY, WITH LIMITED ACCESS IN A SMALL SPACE

ANDY SAYS THE ONLY “HEALTH CARE” THAT THE OBAMAS HAVE SHOWN ANY INTEREST IN IMPROVING THE HEALTH OF MICHELLE’S BANK ACCOUNT

(CHICAGO)(August 22, 2009) Internet Powerhouse and U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin will hold a news conference today to demand that Mark Kirk open his “town hall meeting” August 24th to the public and stop playing politics with health care.

“Americans are concerned, legitimately concerned, with the health care establishment,” Martin charges. “The University of Chicago Hospital System was paying Michelle Obama a third of a million dollars a year for ‘community outreach.’ Did Mark Kirk ever protest? Did he attack the giveaway of health dollars to Michelle Obama? Kirk said and did nothing? Kirk’s ten years in Congress: wasted.

“Kirk could have attacked Obama for focusing his prior ‘health care’ initiative on the health of Michelle’s bank account. A third of a million dollars for Michelle’s do-nothing job was not a bad payoff. He is afraid to do so. Kirk is part of the problem, not part of the solution.

“Kirk was afraid to stand up to Michelle Obama and fight to end her third of a million-dollar bonanza. Michele Obama’s fat paycheck was coming out of the paychecks and pocketbooks of poor people in her own South Side neighborhood. Wealthy, educated yuppies such as the Obamas were getting rich milking the system for big salaries, while ordinary citizens were denied adequate care.

“But despite the fact that Republicans realize some change is essential, they are afraid to take on Obama. I will stand up to Obama and tell him he will not be allowed to impose socialized medicine on the American people. I was the first to predict Obama’s socialist revolution, right on Fox News:
http://www.citizensinaction.ning.
com/video/obamas-dark-past

“When has Mark Kirk ever stood up to Obama? On the contrary, Kirk is Obama’s favorite Republican. Kirk backed Obama on cap-and-trade. Rahm Emanuel has promised Kirk a job in the Obama administration when Kirk loses his senate bid. Who believes Kirk will stand up to Obama and fight socialized medicine? Certainly no Republican thinks Kirk has the ‘right stuff.’

“People already trust me to stand up to Obama. I have a proven record of tackling Obama’s lies and distortions. I will not be Obama’s ‘favorite Republican’ in the U. S. Senate.

“Kirk’s ‘town hall’ meeting was announced at the last minute, surreptitiously, to a favored few. Kirk has not invited the public in to hear his ‘pap’ talk. Why not? He’s a candidate for statewide office.

“Kirk wants it both ways. He wants to pretend that he is for ‘reform,’ but he is afraid to stand up and stare down Barack Obama. Kirk is neither a fighter nor a leader,” Martin says. “Let him open his doors on Monday, August 22nd, and let him see what people think of his timid proposals for reform.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

A SANGAMON COUNTY CIRCUIT JUDGE’S RULING IN A “COMBINE” LAWSUIT WEDNESDAY MAY HAVE TRIGGERED ANDY MCKENNA’S SURPRISE RESIGNATION

ANDY MARTIN’S LAWSUIT TARGETING MCKENNA’S “COMBINE” CORRUPTION AND DIRTY TRICKS MADE MCKENNA TOO TOXIC FOR CONTINUED COMBINE SUPPORT

THE BACK STORY ON HOW THE “COMBINE” “COMBINED,” TO DEPOSE MCKENNA AND SET THE STAGE FOR MARK KIRK’S DOWNFALL

(CHICAGO)(August 22, 2009) There is more than a possibility that Andy Martin’s lawsuit filed last Friday against Andy McKenna, and the corrupt “Combine” of which he is a member, caused the Combine’s leadership to pull the plug on the hapless McKenna.

By Thursday, the same lawsuit had led a Sangamon County circuit judge to chastise the Republican Party’s lawyers for muzzling Martin and violating an agreement with the Court to allow Martin to participate in Republican Day at the Illinois State Fair.

McKenna thought Martin’s lawsuits were jokes; now McKenna has personal experience that lawsuits have consequences. He’s outta there. The poor little rich boy paid the ultimate price.

Andy Martin said Friday, “Andy McKenna left Illinois politics the same way he entered: marinated in dirty politics and overwhelmed by his own incompetence. McKenna first came to my attention when he used a Crime Syndicate hoodlum, Andy Raucci, to harass me in 2003. Six years later, McKenna was still harassing me and my campaign. Only now he’s disgraced and discredited and I am still a major candidate for the U. S. Senate. Clearly, I had more mojo than McKenna.

“Kirkie-boy is McKenna’s embarrassing legacy to the Republican Party. McKenna’s abuse of his leadership role to support Kirk’s campaign blasts a big hole in the Kirk operation. My guess is that with McKenna gone, I will be able to pull an upset and defeat Kirk in the primary.

“Kirk has no doubt been promised a job in the Obama administration, by his best bud Rahm Emanuel. It was amusing to see Kirkie dumping on his Obama friends Thursday. Kirk can’t even lie convincingly. Or maybe he lies too well.

“Ultimately, the ‘doctrine of unintended consequences’ will make my campaign the major beneficiary of McKenna’s removal as State chairman.

“At the end of the week: I am still a leading candidate for U. S. Senator, Mark Kirk campaign’s is seriously weakened through the removal of his unscrupulous supporter, and the Combine feels endangered. Not bad for a week’s work,” Martin said. {His lawsuit was filed last Friday, August 14th.]

FOLLOW-UP:

There was considerable comment on http://www.TheCapitolFaxBlog.com over what happened in Sangamon County Circuit Court Wednesday and Thursday.
http://thecapitolfaxblog.com/2009/08/21/
judge-calls-il-gop-trailer-trash/

Here is my response, posted on the blog. It may help you understand why the judge ruled in my favor, and why he was disgusted with the slimy lawyers representing the Fair and Republican Party:

A couple of clarifications may be in order to your active web post. First, the reader who suggested there was a deal reached Wednesday for my presence at Thursday’s Republican Day is correct. We reached an amicable settlement on Wednesday. Part of the deal was that I would forego a bullhorn, and only use my own voice. I honored the deal. Republicans reneged. That was why the judge was so angry. (The claim I used a bullhorn is thus completely false.)

Second, for the writer who says he “was there” when I said Kirk would boil partial birth aborted babies in oil, I was obviously saying that in a tongue-in-cheek manner and poking fun at Kirk’s support for partial birth abortion. If you are for killing living babies, as Kirk is, how does it change the context if you ridicule such a position by comparing it to boiling babies in oil? Killing living babies is killing living babies. I seem to remember the satirist Jonathan Swift used similar exaggeration. Lighten up. (Unless you are afraid the partial birth abortion supporters don’t care what happens with the dead babies’ “carcasses.”)

I am sorry some of your readers do not like me. Most people who know me view me as a reasonable person. But I respect your readers’ right to free speech. Now if only the Republican Party would respect my right to free speech, we would not be embarrassed on February 2nd by Mark Kirk as our senate candidate.

And yes, my web sites and blogs are filled with anti-Kirk remarks. Kirk’s ridiculous campaign as a “Republican” for statewide office is the only issue in the primary. In the not-so-humble opinion of Republican Party leaders, they believe I am the strongest candidate to defeat Kirk. Why do you think they are censoring me and trying to undermine my campaign? Because I am a chumbolone like the other “senate candidates” they allowed to speak in Springfield? No. They are seeking to muzzle me because I am the only option to beat Kirk.

If I do defeat Kirk, I am probably the only Republican who can also go on to defeat Giannoulias. Who do you want in Washington? Andy or Alexi?

The theme of our Springfield operation was: “Get Real.” (Our Springfield brochure is available on request.)

Your readers are always free to contact me with their opinions.

Finally, I also have the highest respect and admiration for Judge Kelley. He is an extraordinary talented and decent jurist. The judge dealt exceptionally fairly with all parties at the hearing on Wednesday. We all left smiling that a deal had been reached. The judge became angry on Thursday when Republican lawyers reneged, and a slimy lawyer for the Department of Agriculture, Margaret Van Dijk, as well as Republican John Fogarty, insulted the judge’s efforts by telling Illinois State Police there was “no court order” for my presence at the Fair and filing a false criminal complaint against me.

When parties settle a case by agreement, the Court usually does not enter a formal order. Judges trust lawyers to be honest with the court and each other. Fogarty and Van Dijk lied to the Court and to the State Police. They will be held accountable.

As soon as I arrived at the State Fair, Fogarty violated the earlier agreement with the judge. The lawyers lied; the judge was angry. Case closed.

Republicans are also giving Kirk access to the party’s Voter Vault, and denying me access. The court battle goes on.

And no, no one is going to be sued for voicing his opinion on TheCapitolFax blog. I sued because they were denying me free speech. The judge said Wednesday I had filed a valid lawsuit. Why can’t some of your readers respect the fact that the judge ruled in my favor and respected my legal acumen, and respect me for fighting to open up the Republican Party and fight for the free speech rights of everyone?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

A SANGAMON COUNTY CIRCUIT JUDGE THURSDAY COMPARED REPUBLICAN TACTICS TO A “TRAILER PARK” BRAWL AS ANDY MARTIN BEAT MARK KIRK IN COURT TWO DAYS IN A ROW

KIRK’S DEBUT IN AN “UNCONTROLLED” ENVIRONMENT ENDED IN PANDEMONIUM AFTER A SECOND COURT DEBACLE FOR REPUBLICAN LEADERS

MARTIN NOW PLANS MASSIVE CLAIMS AGAINST KIRK’S CAMPAIGN CASH FOR CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS, WILL SEEK FREEZE ON KIRK’S ASSETS

MARTIN SAYS REPUBLICAN LEADERS ARE SOLICITING FRIVOLOUS SENATE CANDIDATES TO PROTECT KIRK AND CONFUSE VOTERS

REPUBLICAN PARTY’S “CLOWN SHOW” SEEKS TO SHROUD KIRK WITH CONFUSION AND “BED SHEET BALLOT”

(CHICAGO)(August 21, 2009) A visibly angry Sangamon Circuit judge Thursday chastised Republication Party leaders for seeking to silence U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin. The judge compared the Republican tactics to “trailer trash.” “I feel as tough I am overseeing a trailer park,” Chief Sangamon Circuit Judge Patrick Kelley said in an emergency hearing. The court protracted Andy Martin’s free speech rights for the second day in a row.

“We are extremely encouraged by the judge’s ruling,” Martin said. “We are now going to convert a lawsuit that was started as an injunction case to add claims for money damages against Mark Kirk’s campaign cash as well as others. Kirk may be raising millions in dirty dollars, but we are going to seek a freeze on those funds while the lawsuit is pending.”

Republican Party lawyers tried to terrorize Martin while he campaigned against Kirk Thursday at the Illinois State Fair’s “Republican Day.” Martin stood his ground and in a second court hearing in as many days, Martin prevailed fully on his arguments that Republican leaders were unconstitutionally trying to muzzle him.

“We settled the case on Wednesday,” Martin said. “And they reneged on Thursday. The judge was visibly angry. A crooked series of Kirk lawyers involving Brian Sheehan, John Fogarty and Department of Agriculture attorney Margaret Van Dijk tried to renege on their deal by using the Illinois State Police as fascist bully boys to harass me. The behavior of the State Police was deplorable.

“Van Dijk told me Brian Sheehan has ‘filed a criminal complaint against you.’ Sheehan was trying to undo the Wednesday settlement negotiated by his own attorney! What a joke.

“I was surrounded by approximately ten (10) state police, including a Captain, a Lieutenant and 8-10 other state troopers. Why are these men and women not out catching crooks? Why are they being used as fascist storm troopers to silence Kirk’s election opponents? We will be filing Freedom of Information demands and joining the State Police in the reconstituted civil rights conspiracy.

“The Director’s Lawn became an armed camp as police surrounded and shadowed me. I said that we should go back to court, we did, and the judge agreed with me completely. He rejected Fogarty’s claim that there were ‘too many’ Republican candidates to permit me to campaign. He rejected Fogarty’s claim that there was a ‘free speech’ area a mile away from the Republican Party, saying ‘don’t go there, we resolved that.’

“Acting as a proxy for Mark Kirk, the Republican Party lost on all of its arguments. The judge asked ‘Why don’t you just let Mr. Martin speak?’ Republican lawyers said they would not.

“I pointed out that I had been attacked at the hotel by the Party’s new thug-in-residence, Randy Pollard, who launched an unprovoked diatribe against me. Pollard is drawing a Party paycheck while simultaneously serving in a conflict of interest situation as leader of the ‘Clownty’ Chairmen’s Association. Pollard’s conflicts were evident Thursday’s fiasco.

“The judge appeared to be shocked and dismayed by Mark Kirk’s tactics. He saw right through what they were doing. Some Republicans are trying to use bullying behavior to intimidate me from exposing Kirk in the primary election for what he is, a crooked congressman whose senate campaign is being fueled by liberal news media and corrupt campaign financing,” Martin said.

Martin expects to file his amended complaint seeking a freeze on Kirk’s campaign cash next week.

“It is very clear that Kirk is now trying to confuse voters and protect himself from meaningful campaign scrutiny by creating his own bogus ‘bed sheet ballot’ of opponents; Republican leaders have adopted a ‘clown show’ strategy, where anyone who claims to be a ‘candidate’–except me of course–is automatically allowed to speak and used to confuse voters with a ‘bed sheet’ list of ‘candidates.’

“This clown circus is Kirk’s effort to cloak the primary in a plethora of frivolous ‘candidacies,’ so he will not face meaningful primary scrutiny. I believe Kirk’s tactic is going to backfire,” Martin says.

“Republicans refused to let me speak, Kirk’s only opponent who has previously run statewide, and who carried or nearly carried 40 counties just last year, and received a quarter million votes:
http://www.elections.state.il.us/ElectionInformation/VoteTotalsList.aspx?officeid=4266

“But they found time to listen to a progression of delusional ‘candidates’ who have never run for any office, let alone statewide office, and have not even registered with federal authorities. Republican leaders are making a farce of themselves.

“Is there a message here? Republican leaders are trying to protect Kirk from a real primary by creating their own bogus bed sheet ballot of confusing ‘candidacies.’ The effort will fail and ultimately destroy Kirk’s stillborn campaign. Kirk is a disaster waiting to happen. But he will ‘happen,’” Martin concludes.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 20, 2009

U. S. SENATE CANDIDATE ANDY MARTIN WINS MAJOR SANGAMON COURT SETTLEMENT

(Springfield, IL)(August 20, 2009) Sangamon County Chief Circuit Judge Patrick Kelley agreed Wednesday to supervise a settlement between Republican U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin and the Illinois Republican Party. Martin had sued the Party for discriminating against him in preparations for the Illinois State Fair.

An attorney for the Illinois Republican Party agreed to place Martin on the same basis with other senate candidates. The lawsuit alleged that Party employees had refused to deal with Martin’s representatives “on the advice of the Party’s attorneys.”

“Well the Republican Party’s lawyers were in court Wednesday,” Martin stated. “And they agreed to take back their advice to Party employees to stop dealing me with me and my supporters. We will have full participation at the Illinois State Fair.

“The Court agreed I had filed a proper lawsuit,” Martin said after the settlement was announced. “The judge conducted settlement negotiations in chambers, and we were able to achieve with the help of a judge what Party leaders refused to concede without a court case.

“It is unfortunate that party leaders put the court and the party through an unnecessary lawsuit.

“How party leaders can justify discriminating against a candidate that carried or nearly carried forty (40) counties last year, and won almost 35% of the statewide primary vote (240,000 votes), escapes me:
http://www.elections.state.il.us/Election
Information/VoteTotalsList.aspx?officeid=4266

“No wonder people are suspicious of the Republican Party’s leadership. They are trying to silence my candidacy while promoting others who have never run statewide such as Mark Kirk.

“The liberal news media and corrupt Associated Press are trying to pretend a candidate who carried 40 counties last year doesn’t exist. I consider that a compliment. Someone considers me a threat. That’s how they treated reformers in the old Soviet Union. They erased their existence.

“No other candidate has my credentials as a campaigner and as a corruption fighter. No one. I’m proud of my forty years of integrity and independence.

“Unfortunately, yesterday’s settlement is only a partial settlement. Michael Steel is still forcing me to sue him to obtain access to the RNC’s ‘Voter Vault.’ Why? Judges are getting tired of the Republican Party’s harassment of my campaign.

“The Republican Party agreed to stop discriminating against my campaign at the State Fair, and to allow me the same access and treatment as other candidates. They have not agreed to drop all resistance to my powerhouse campaign for the U. S. Senate.”

“The chief judge said he would be sitting Thursday to hear any disputes over Wednesday’s settlement,” Martin said. “I hope there will not be any. I would like to go back to campaigning for votes and stop being forced to file lawsuits to obtain my basic rights.”
