Dear Member of the
Andy Martin Petition
Thank you! We made political history in Illinois!
The corrupt political Republicrat “Combine” that controls Illinois politics only managed to file slightly more than 5,000 valid signatures for my Combine opponent, insurance company doctor Steve Sauerberg (he filed a total of 7,000 names but some were invalid).
We filed the legal maximum: 10,000 signatures. We had more valid signatures left over than any of my primary opponents managed to collect in total! I owe it all to you.
I have scheduled an appreciation reception for all of you who submitted 100 or more valid signatures.
The reception is scheduled as follows: The Grotto, 1030 N. State Street (Newberry Plaza), Chicago, Wednesday, November 28th from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. The food is on me. (There is a cash bar.)
Petition circulators are the unsung heroes of the Illinois political process. So far as I am aware this is the first time in history that any statewide Republican candidate has scheduled a special appreciation reception for petition circulators.
Unlike the Republicrats, who are composed of rich heirs to inherited fortunes, crooked politicians, lobbyists, and the lawyers who serve all of them, our organization is made up of the salt of the earth, ordinary citizens who came together and were molded into a campaign team.
The Chicago Tribune has called me an “absolutely brilliant campaigner.” I know how to organize a campaign. You proved it all over again, by making a powerful statement with your mountain of petition signatures. I am proud to have worked with all of you.
Your petition signatures are going to help work miracles in Illinois politics. First we are going to win the primary on February 5th. No one expects us to win; when we do, the corrupt system and its media sycophants will be shaken.
Then we are going to rebuild and reform the Republican Party, to make it a party that welcomes and serves all the People of Illinois and not just the privileged few. I believe in a strong two party system. Today Illinois suffers from a 1-1/2 party structure.
Finally, we are going to score an upset victory in November, 2008 and remove the Combine’s senator in Washington. He is the finest public official that money can buy. He is for sale to the highest bidder, if you are rich enough to afford him. I am not for sale to anyone for any sum of money. I work for the People of Illinois, not the Combine, not the special interests and not the crooks who have embarrassed us at home and abroad.
You must respond by e-mail (preferred) or phone by Friday, November 16th to see if your name is on our list, so we can plan definite arrangements. I hope you can make it. Dress: coat and tie for men, appropriate for women. We hope to take pictures.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for your outstanding service.
With all best wishes,
