Is Pat Hughes “too busy” again?

(CHICAGO)(October 27, 2009) Pat Hughes was “too busy” to vote for most of his adult life. He was “too busy” to declare himself a Republican until 2008. And Monday, October 26th “Too Busy Hughes” was apparently “too busy” to file his nominating petitions for United States Senator.

The “Smoke Filled Room Nine” “Christian leaders” who endorsed Hughes in August, and who had shrunk to 'six' individuals by mid-October, were dumfounded to learn their candidate “missing in action” at the State Board of Elections.

“We are promising a fair and impartial investigation,” Andy Martin pledged tongue-in-cheek. “We will find Pat Hughes and we will rescue him from whatever is holding him back from filing his petitions. Who knows what evil has befallen Hughes?

“Was Hughes discouraged by the lack of financial support for his campaign, and the ‘disappearance’ of promised contributions? Was he discouraged by the on-again, off-again ‘Ditkagate’ controversy that left is reputation in tatters? Was it the chaos within his own campaign? Did Mark Kirk bribe Hughes to withdraw, with Kirk’s mountain of ‘dirty dollars’ from lobbyists and special interests? Where is Hughes?

“I was outside the Board of Elections at 4:45 A.M. Monday. Other statewide candidates were already in line (or else had ‘sitters’ holding down a place for them). But there was no sign of Hughes.

“If Hughes does not surface soon, my campaign is prepared to offer a reward to ascertain his whereabouts. Unless, of course, Hughes is ‘too busy’ and does not want to be disturbed by the messy process of voting and running for office,” Martin noted. “If ‘Too Busy Hughes’ is alive, we will find him.”
