ANDY MARTIN DEMANDS BARACK OBAMA STEP DOWN AS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE

June 14, 2007

“GHOST OF REZKO” HAUNTS OBAMA CAMPAIGN; “SOFT-CORE” CORRUPTION STAINS “BARRY O,” PROMPTS HIS CAMPAIGN STAFF TO LIE AS SUN-TIMES FURNISHES NEW EVIDENCE OF REZKO-OBAMA LINKS

(CHICAGO)(June 14, 2007) Chicago-based Internet journalist, broadcaster and media critic Andy Martin will hold a news conference Thursday, June 14th at 1:00 P.M. to demand that
Barack Obama step down as a presidential candidate “because Obama has brazenly lied to the American people” about his links to Illinois influence peddler and indicted alleged extortionist Tony Rezko.

Martin’s demand on May 15th that Michelle Obama resign from Wal-Mart supplier Treehouse Foods prompted Barack Obama’s wife to step down from Treehouse shortly thereafter.

“Last November 16th I asked to appear before the United States Grand Jury to testify about the extensive links between Barack Obama and indicted influence peddler Tony Rezko,” Martin will charge. The Chicago Sun-Times’ latest disclosures confirm more of the basis for my testimony.

“Wednesday, June 13th’s Chicago Sun-Times exposed yet another layer of links between Obama and Rezko.

“Plainly put, Obama lied when he claimed his contacts with Rezko were innocent and that he was simply a ‘boneheaded’ naïf, the ‘Obambi Defense.’ He lied when he said he had no idea about Rezko’s real estate activity.

“It is simply not credible that Obama and his senior law partner and Rezko were all holding hands without knowing what was going on, and that Obama was writing letters on behalf of his ‘community’ for Rezko. Obama’s earlier story was that he ‘knew nothing’ about Rezko’s real estate shenanigans. Now the Sun-Times has published a letter on Obama’s senate stationary boosting Rezko. Will wonders never cease? Obama has what Illinois Republicans would call a ‘Jack Ryan’ problem, i.e. damaging disclosures to come after the primaries next year.

“We don’t need an African-American Bill Clinton in the White House, who thinks that he has a ‘license to lie’ as he seeks the nation’s highest office. Obama has cruelly lied to his supporters about his links to Tony Rezko. He is hoping that his ongoing ’modified limited hangout’ through press agents will allow him to tough it out.

“Obama’s response to the latest disclosures about his links to Rezko were more of the same: hiding behind campaign press assistants. Barry needs to come clean.

“The Democrats may be paying footsie in their presidential ‘debates,’ afraid to ask each other tough, penetrating questions, but the ‘Ghost of Rezko’ will not soon depart from Obama’s presence. Not only has Obama lied to the American people, he has lied repeatedly and sought to misled flaccid journalists about his years as a practicing lawyer in Chicago, when he dealt in the same kind of soft-core influence peddling and corruption as countless other attorneys and state legislators.

“When Tony starts to sing, he’ll be singing ‘Barry Obama’s Song,’” Martin says.
