ANNOUNCEMENT OF SUNDAY NEWS CONFERENCE IN CHICAGO
Andy Martin will seek disclosure of “Solo Crime Family” source of political funds; money laundering and federal election law violations are apparent in “Solo” actions
“Candidate X” will also be the target of lawsuit to disclosure source of money laundering in seeking State Board of Elections petition records
(CHICAGO)(November 8, 2009) Republican U. S. Senate candidate and insurgent “Internet Powerhouse” Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference Sunday, November 8th to announce that he is preparing to file a lawsuit Monday in DuPage County to force the disclosure of funding for the “Solo Crime Family.”
“Someone who claims to be named ‘Solo’ is laundering money for an undisclosed U. S. Senate candidate,” Martin says. “I had not planned to challenge anyone’s petitions myself, but the surreptitious action of someone, in financing a mystery-man ‘Solo’ to copy the petitions of six (6) senate candidates tells me we are looking at political dirty tricks.
“We have had to go to condition ‘red’ to protect against election fraud. Sunday afternoon I hired an election attorney to defend the electoral process from criminal activity.
“Attacks by someone directed at six campaigns, excepting Pat Hughes and Mark Kirk, raise obvious suspicions. I have been told who is behind this scam, but out of an abundance of caution I will sue the ‘Solos’ and use my best efforts to definitively ascertain which one of them is behind the criminal activity.
“Federal law is very different than Illinois law. Under Illinois law, virtually ‘anything goes.’ Under federal law, when a federal (e.g. U. S. Senate) candidate transfers money out of their campaign account to purchase State Board of Elections petition files, the expenditure for that service must be made directly and not through a nominee to conceal the candidate as the source of cash. Hiding the source of cash is money laundering.
“Federal disclosure requirements were mandated as a result of money laundering during the Watergate conspiracy.
“We now have a mini-Watergate on our hands. An unidentified campaign gave someone who claims to be ‘Andrew Solo’ a large sum of cash to copy petitions at the State Board of Elections. Who was the source of that cash? I contacted the Solos and they refuse to respond. I am entitled to assume from the Solos’ silence that there is criminal activity going on.
“The ‘Solo’ phone number I was furnished was (630) 963-4170 in case anyone wants to check for themselves.
“A candidate who will engage in criminal activity as part of the petition process, and recruit others to aid and abet in criminal activity by seeking to money launder expenditures through his associates, needs to be disclosed. Period.
“Sadly, it is obvious that Republicans are as prone to criminal activity in politics as the Democrats,” Martin said.
