ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEWS CONFERENCE
U. S. SENATE CANDIDATE ANDY MARTIN SAYS STEVE SAUERBERG IS HUMILIATING THE ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
MARTIN SAYS SAUERBERG'S "HEALTH PLAN" TO ABOLISH MEDICARE (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES) WILL BECOME DEMOCRATS' "MEDISCARE"
(CHICAGO)(January 28, 2008) Republican U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin will hold a sidewalk news conference Monday, January 28th at 1:00 P.M. to suggest the Republican State Central Committee regain control of the Illinois Republican Party and revoke the "endorsement" of a madcap doctor who wants to abolish Medicare.
"I have been warning that Steve Sauerberg is a nut case and an incompetent candidate, but I did not realize just how nutty he was until I read the Sunday Chicago Sun-Times and saw that Sauerberg wants to eliminate Medicare.
"Sauerberg was 'endorsed' by a State Central Committee that was given no agenda and had no warning of this illegal act. An Independent Legal Counsel who reviewed the facts has come to the conclusion that while the endorsement was technically permissible, financial support by the Party for the Sauerberg campaign was unauthorized and unlawful (ultra vires).
"Steve Sauerberg is going to embarrass every Republican candidate running in Illinois," Martin will state. "His latest crackpot proposal, to abolish Medicare, will become 'Mediscare' in the hands of every Democratic candidate in Illinois.
"The fact that the State Central Committee endorsed this foolishness is making a compete laughingstock of the entire Republican party, and supports my claim that on February 6th when I am the nominee for U. S. Senator I will take steps to effect the prompt removal of the McKenna Family from any connection with the Republican Party.
"The State Committee members have the defensible position that they were not warned of Sauerberg's kooky positions and were given no warning that such an 'endorsement' would be made. Only Rick Pearson of the Chicago Tribune was tipped off in advance.
"By remaining silent, SCC members across the state, in every county and district, are endorsing Sauerberg's crackpot view that the head of the Republican ticket in Illinois will campaign on abolishing Medicare. What a disgrace. What an embarrassment. What a humiliation. Illinois Democrats are probably salivating at the prospect that they could face Sauerberg, instead of me, in November. I cannot let this catastrophe happen. I must win.
"We will have a second major announcement on Monday," Martin stated.
