Illinois Republicans rally behind Andy Martin’s criticism of John McCain

Mark Kirk’s effort to use Beltway endorsements to compensate for Illinois opposition backfires

(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.

The Anti-Andy Martin said...


Mr. Martin has fabricated the story of the so-called "Stolen Tapes". The tapes which he refers to are NOT and have NEVER been his property.

ADR Productions was hired by an individual from another state back in March 2009 to film what was titled "National Conference on Barack Obama's Missing Birth Certificate and College Records". The conference turned out to be Mr. Martin talking before 4-6 people in a hotel room in Washington, DC. He outlined his conspiracy theory on President Obama and the State of Hawaii. He announced a boycott of Hawaii and it was over.

Mr. Martin was not a part of the contract between ADR Productions and the client. After ADR Productions fulfilled the contract obligations with the client, Mr. Martin requested that the video footage be edited further to his likings. ADR Production refused to contract with Mr. Martin to work on his project.

Now, keep in mind that the production company owns "Intellectual Property Rights" to anything they film and the original contract was not with Mr. Martin.

Mr. Martin would not take a hint when his calls and e-mails kept going unanswered by ADR. He then started threatening the company with frivolous lawsuits and complaints with the BBB and Consumer Protection. He claims he is the owner of the tapes in question. ADR Productions had no choice but to send a registered letter to Mr. Martin asking him to leave them alone. The owner of the company then had to file a "Peace Order" against Mr. Martin. This is when it got crazy.

Mr. Martin was so upset that he was refused services and issued a peace order that he went off the deep end with a concocted story about how he owned this video footage and it was stolen by the owner of ADR. He claims that the owner of ADR Productions, it’s client, the judge who issued the protective order and the Washington Post, (for covering the story), are all Obama Operatives and now Mark Kirk Operatives working to destroy his run at the Illinois senate in 2010. This reads like a Robert Ludlum book.

This is strictly Mr. Martins way of drawing attention to himself in a time where he is feeling neglected by the world around him. Don’t forget, only 4-6 people showed up to hear his so-called “National Conference”. I would feel neglected too.

The bottom line…Martin has proven he is not playing with all 52 cards in the deck. The tapes are just ramblings of a “mad man” and the tapes belong to the production company which has a great reputation among it’s customers and the Washington Metropolitan area. It was just unfortunate that ADR Productions got involved in the project from the start.

This story really is not as sensational as Mr. Martin would like it to be. I do believe the readers of this information are smart enough to figure out fact from fiction among all of Mr. Martin’s writings and ramblings.

God Bless America.
