(CHICAGO)(February 22, 2008) Internet editor and columnist Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference today, Friday, February 22nd at 3:00 P.M. to call on Senator Barack Obama to make a full, complete, “honest and truthful” disclosure of all of his contacts and relationship with indicted Illinois influence-peddler Tony Rezko.

Martin will also announce he has asked federal authorities to “Free Tony Rezko” and will release copies of Martin’s letter to the Department of Justice.

“Barack Obama has been lying to the American people, plain and simple,” Martin will charge. “He told the media that Tony Rezko was someone ‘he had known’ in Chicago. Today’s Chicago Sun-Times discloses otherwise. Rezko and Obama went house-hunting together:,CST-NWS-rside22.article

“With all due respect, house-hunting is one of the most personal things people do in life. We all know that. You don’t go house-hunting with strangers or casual acquaintances, as Obama would have us believe. The disclosure that Barry and Tony went looking together raises the closeness of the Obama-Rezko relationship to a hitherto-undisclosed level.

“Obama has been trying to conceal the truth from the American people. It is time for Obama to ‘come clean’ and stop lying.

“On a related matter, I have written to the Department of Justice and Attorney General and asked that Tony Rezko either be freed from confinement or placed in general population. The attempt to psychologically torture Rezko and to deprive him of a meaningful opportunity to defend himself is a disgrace to American justice. It is time we as a nation stopped torturing our own, just as we should stop torturing abroad,” Martin will state.
