ANNOUNCEMENT OF SATURDAY NEWS CONFERENCE IN LAKE FOREST
ANDY MARTIN SAYS MARK KIRK’S “CORRUPT CASH” IS UNDERMINING THE ENTIRE REPUBLICAN PARTY
MARTIN SAYS “NO CANDIDATE SHOULD BE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST AT ANY REPUBLICAN PARTY EVENT DURING A PRIMARY”
(LAKE FOREST, IL)(September 25, 2009) Republican U. S. Senate candidate and insurgent “Internet Powerhouse” Andy Martin will confront Mark Kirk at a function of the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Women’s Republican Club Saturday, September 26th.
Martin charges that Mark Kirk’s tainted “Beltway Dollars” from Washington lobbyists are corrupting the 2010 primary. “Why are Republican leaders disenfranchising an entire group of Senate candidates to favor Mark Kirk?” Martin will ask. “Because Kirk paid Republicans $50,000 in ‘corrupt cash.’ Kirk is the new George Ryan.”
Martin will be in Lake Forest soliciting signatures for his campaign and attacking Kirk for engaging in “pay to play” with the corrupt leadership of the Illinois Republican Party.
“I have some questions for Markie Kirk,” Martin says. “I am delighted we have both been invited to the Women’s Republican Club function, so I can confront the Markster with his bribery of Illinois Republican leaders. Previous episodes of pay-to-play destroyed the Republican Party. Some so-called ‘leaders’ have not learned their lesson. They are back grabbing Kirk’s ‘dirty dollars.’
“People say Kirk ‘raises a lot of campaign cash.’ Of course he does. He sells his vote to Exelon and other special interests. It’s easy to raise money if you’re a thief. You steal from working people and sell their vote to the highest hedge fund bidder.
“Republican Party leaders are rigging campaign events, harassing opposing U. S. Senate candidates and in general acting more in conformity with Iranian ayatollahs than traditional level-playing-field Republicans. They are having a ‘Convention’ Saturday in which only Kirk is allowed to speak, and in which the other Senate candidates opposing him are being silenced.
“Americans are dying in Afghanistan to protect this kind of sleazy politics here at home? I don’t think so. This would not be happening if John McCain was still alive.
“The Illinois Republican Party has been corrupted by Kirk’s Kash. For shame.
“On Saturday Mr. Kirk and I will discuss why he can’t be a credible candidate for statewide office when he engages in pay-to play. Lake Forest could be a very interesting place this Saturday evening. Mr. Kirk owes every Illinois Republican answers. I aim to ask the questions.”
Martin will conduct a 4:30 P.M. news conference on the west side of the Lake Forest Metra station to attack Kirk and his pay-to-play machinations.
