MARK KIRK’S SENATE CAMPAIGN FACES CHARGES OF ILLEGAL CAMPAIGN ACTIVITY IN CONJUNCTION WITH ANDY MCKENNA AND “COMBINE REPUBLICANS”
MARTIN IS ASKING A SANGAMON COUNTY COURT TO ORDER THE RNC TO PERMIT HIM TO ACCESS THE PARTY’S “VOTER VAULT”
MARTIN SAYS THE ILLINOIS STATE FAIR UNLAWFULLY TRIES TO STIFLE DEBATE ON “REPUBLICAN DAY,” AUGUST 20TH
(CHICAGO)(August 17, 2009) A Sangamon County Circuit Judge has set an emergency hearing for Wednesday, August 19th on a lawsuit filed by Republican U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin against the Illinois State Fair and the Republican National Committee [hearing details below]. Martin has set a Chicago news conference for August 18th to explain his accusations.
Insurgent “Internet Powerhouse” Martin charges that the Republican Party is illegally denying him access to the RNC’s “Voter Vault” to thwart his corruption-fighting campaign for the U. S. Senate. Andy claims the Illinois Republican Party’s leadership is controlled by a corrupt bipartisan “Combine.”
Finally, Martin’s case, filed in Sangamon County Circuit Court, Springfield, Illinois, seeks a court order permitting his protesters at the State Fair’s “Republican Day” to reflect the split in the Illinois Party.
The Circuit Court hearing on Martin’s Verified Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order will lead off two days of conservative Republican Springfield-area demonstrations and confrontation by Martin and his supporters.
Wednesday evening Martin is expected to picket Springfield’s historic Pasfield House Inn where Republicans are meeting; Thursday will involve conflicts over “Republican Day” at the Illinois State Fair. [details to follow] Martin is establishing a “Conservative Fighting Camp” to confront his opponent, “infanticide” Senate candidate Mark Kirk.
"There are two Republican Parties in Illinois,” Martin says. “There are the Republicans who live and work on Main Street; conservatives who are raising families and struggling with the economy. And there is the ‘other’ Republican Party of wealthy business leaders, known as the bipartisan ‘Combine’ of corruption that controls the nominal machinery of the Party through dishonest members of the Republican State Central Committee.
“I represent Main Street Republicans; Mark Kirk is the candidate of the Daley Machine-dominated ‘Combine.’
“I am being harassed for exposing Republican, as well as Democratic, corruption in Illinois. But Republicans cannot win in 2010 by being two-faced about crooked government. Unfortunately National Chairman Michael Steel was elected Chairman with help from the ‘Combine.’
“I asked Steele to open the RNC’s Voter Vault database because the Illinois ‘Combine’ is denying me access. The Voter Vault is supposed to be available to Republican candidates on a nondiscriminatory basis. Steele and his counsel refuse to respond. They are kowtowing to the Combine-controlled faction of the Party.
“Likewise, the Illinois State Fair seeks to limit debate and confrontation on what the Fair calls ‘Republican Day.’ I managed to work out protest procedures with the Chicago Police Department on Chicago’s crowded streets and sidewalks without the need to file a lawsuit. The Illinois State Fair is trying to stifle political dissent on state-owned land. The entire State of Illinois is a racketeer influenced corrupt organization. Even the State Fair.
“As for Mr. Steele, he can blab about ‘reform’ all he wants; as long as he is keeping corruption-fighting candidates from accessing the Voter Vault, he is voting with the Chicago Combine and against the People of Illinois,” Martin charges. “The Voter Vault belongs to Republican candidates nationally; it should not be under the control of the corrupt ‘Combine’ in Illinois.”
Martin’s Verified Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order is posted on the Internet as a separate release.
