ANDY MARTIN: Mark Kirk’s lawyers get caught in a lie

Illinois corruption-fighter Andy Martin caught Mark Kirk’s lawyers in a lie. In a heated Monday morning hearing in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Kirk’s attorneys, who are trying to keep Martin off the ballot, admitted they had lost contact with their “client” Andrew Heffernan. Heffernan faces possible criminal charges for violating federal election laws by falsely claiming he was interested in opposing Martin, when Heffernan was only a front man for the Republican Party. Federal Election law makes it a felony to engage in “conduit” political activity in federal campaigns.

Corruption fighter Andy Martin says that DuPage County Republican sex fiend Brien Sheahan admitted in open court he and John Fogarty, Jr. are basically conducting fraudulent litigation against Andy

Andy Martin was in the Circuit Court of Cook County Monday when Republican sex fiend Brien Sheahan admitted he was not communicating with his own “client”

Martin is working to put an end to the fraudulent Illinois campaign practice of “fronts” and “shams” used by Pat Brady and the Illinois Republican Party to conduct election litigation on behalf of Mark Kirk

Martin says that Tuesday afternoon he will hold the first of his new series of “Bunker Buster” news conferences.

(CHICAGO)(September 21, 2010) Illinois Reform Party U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin, whose “Bunker Buster” news conferences and political advertising earlier this year opened the door for national media to destroy the political career of Closeted Congressman Mark Kirk, will launch new attacks Tuesday on Kirk and the corrupt leadership cadre of the Illinois Republican Party.

On Saturday, Martin helped trigger massive demonstrations against Glenn Beck’s presence in Illinois on behalf of Pat Brady and other corrupt Republicans.

“There is a massive disconnect between ‘Illinois Republicans’ and the Illinois Republican Party,” Martin says. “Most Illinoisans who vote Republican are honest, hard-working, God-fearing citizens. They are pretty good conservatives. But the management of the ‘Illinois Republican Party’ is nothing but a bunch of crooks, led by Pat Brady and his sleazy staff, including legal masquerader Brien Sheahan.”

Brien Sheahan is the DuPage County Republican factotum who was engaged in a scandalous sexual relationship with a married Republican official; Sheahan reportedly got married recently to deflect rumors that he is gay.

“Most Republicans do not realize that when they contribute their precious, hard-earned money to the Illinois Republican Party, Pat Brady is siphoning off that cash to pay Brien Sheahan $35,000 a year for serving as ‘General Counsel,’” Martin notes. “John Fogarty, Jr. also profits from cash which contributors believe will be used to fight Democrats. Brady, Sheahan and Fogarty are looting the Republican Party for their own political and personal enrichment. The rest of the office staff of the Party is not much better, if at all.

“I am working on behalf of good Republicans, not the crooked cabal of ‘Republicans’ that is part of the bipartisan ‘Combine of corruption’ in Illinois politics.

“Monday Mr. Sheahan was caught in a lie, in open court, on a transcript. Sheahan told Circuit Judge Robert Bertucci that Sheahan had ‘not been served’ with Martin’s appellate materials. As required by state law, I was serving Sheahan’s ‘client,’ not Sheahan personally. Sheahan didn’t even know what the statute required. Sheahan’s confession was recorded on tape as well as being taken down by a court reporter.

“We now have conclusive evidence that Andrew Heffernan, who faces federal prison because of his fraudulent election affidavits and blatant perjury before the Illinois State Board of Elections, no longer communicates with Sheahan and Fogarty. Heffernan has belatedly realized that he is being used as a ‘chumbolone’ by the higher-ups in the Illinois Republican Party. Heffernan is committing the actual crimes, by lying abut his relationship to Sheahan and Fogarty as well as by lying about Heffernan’s real role as a stooge ‘objector’ for Illinois Republican Party leaders.

“What was the General Counsel of the Illinois Republican Party doing in court Monday claiming to act as the ‘attorney’ for someone who is supposed to be an independent ‘citizen objector?’ Obviously, Heffernan now realizes he has been used, and he could go to jail, while Sheahan collects $35,000 a year from the Republican Party for doing nothing. It is sleazy.

“But the real majordomo of sleaze in Illinois Republican circles is Mark Kirk, the ‘Closeted Congressman’ who is famous in Chicago’s ‘Boys Town’ for his escapades as a ‘gay blade’ in that neighborhood.

“Last year I told Pat Brady if he ran a crooked primary on behalf of Kirk, he and Kirk would pay for it this November. Brady ran a crooked primary, and they will be paying for it between now and November 2nd. Tuesday we drop the first ‘Bunker Buster.’ There are plenty more to come,” Martin says. “And the great thing: all of my evidence and accusations are truthful. I have a proven track record of breaking news and telling the truth about Kirk. Mark Kirk, on the other hand, uses lies to promote himself; I am using the truth to demote him.”
