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:

“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.
