ANNOUNCEMENT OF FRIDAY NEWS CONFERENCE IN CHICAGO
INTERNET POWERHOUSE ANDY MARTIN ASKS ILLINOIS SUPREME COURT TO ALLOW HIM TO DEFEND THE ILLINOIS CONSTITUTION AGAINST DEMOCRATIC PARTY PREDATORS
MARTIN CHARGES THAT WLS-AM DEFAMED HIM AND THAT CHANNEL 7 ANCHOR RON MAGERS IS TRYING TO SMEAR MARTIN WITHOUT AFFORDING ANDY ANY OPPORTUNITY TO DEFEND HIMSELF
“MEDIA SMEARS, CROOKED MADIGAN FAMILY POLITICS, SOMEONE HAS TO STAND UP AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION,” SAYS ANDY. “I’LL DO IT.”
“I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING POLITICAL CORRUPTION IN ILLINOIS FOR OVER FORTY YEARS, AND THIS IS THE BIGGEST CASE EVER,” SAYS ANDY.
“I WANT TO MAKE IT CLEAR I AM DEFENDING THE CONSTITUTION OF THIS STATE, NOT ANY INDIVIDUAL AND NOT BLAGO PERSONALLY”
MARTIN CHARGES “MADIGAN FAMILY” WITH “PIRATE POLITICS”
(CHICAGO)(December 12, 2008) Constitutional scholar and Internet powerhouse Andy Martin will hold a 5:30 P.M. Chicago news conference today, Friday, December 12th to announce that he will ask the Illinois Supreme Court for permission to appear in and defend Governor Rod Blagojevich from the predatory political manipulation of the “Madigan Family.”
“Sleazy and crooked politics in Illinois fell to a new low today when the ‘Madigan Family’ joined with the Obama Gang in trying to stage a coup against the incumbent Governor.
“The issue is no longer whether Rod Blagojevich is right or wrong. The issue is whether our Constitution can come under assault by predatory politicians in the Democratic Party.
“I first met and worked with Abner Mika forty-three years ago when he was a reformer in the Illinois legislature. Abner has now become the follower of a ‘cult’ involving Barry Obama. I am saddened that Ab has now become an Obama doormat and that he is joining with Lisa Madigan to stage this outrageous political coup. I would only point out that Mikva held very different views about removal from public office during the impeachment of Bill Clinton.
“It is not my role to defend Blagojevich personally. I am sure he will have counsel. But I am asking the Illinois Supreme Court to allow me to defend the Constitution of Illinois against the predatory politicians of the Democratic Party.
“What the latest attack on Blagojevich means is that the ‘Madigan Family’ is trying to cut a deal to seize a U. S. Senate seat in conspiracy with Lt. Gov. Pat Quinn, and to short-circuit the democratic process of impeachment. This is Illinois ‘Pirate Politics’ of the first order. How is Madigan’s self-interested use and abuse of public office any different than Blagojevich’s?
“Lisa Madigan’s filing in the Illinois Supreme Court is utterly and completely frivolous. She may be a good politician, and she may have a powerful daddy, but she is obviously an incompetent lawyer. And she has taken along with her a bunch of mendacious Democrats.
“Republicans have a duty to defend out limited and divided government. Today Lisa Madigan has joined forces with Barack Obama to stage an attempted coup against an unpopular incumbent. There is a right way and a wrong way to remove a public official. Pirate Democrats chose the wrong way.
“I will be asking the Illinois Supreme Court to disqualify Lisa Madigan and to strike her petition as having been filed in violation of a naked conflict of interest on her part,” Martin will state.
“Finally, I also note that Ron Magers went on WLS-AM yesterday and slimed me. If Mr. Magers wants to attack me, he should do me the courtesy of allowing me to defend myself. WLS told me they were not interested in allowing me to defend myself against his false claims. For shame. Media smears are apparently part of an orchestrated campaign to take down the governor and anyone who stands up against the dirty politics on all sides of the Democratic Party. I will stand up for democracy and our Constitution and Mr. Magers and Channel 7/WLS-AM be damned.”

URGENT APPEAL: The Committee of One Million to Defeat Barack Obama is raising money for the ongoing fight against Barack Obama.
“Our ability to continue to defang and defeat Barack Obama after Election Day is directly dependent on the generosity of every American. The Committee of One Million to Defeat Barack Obama limits itself to $100 maximum contributions for political action, and unlimited donations for persons wanting to support our legal action (court costs, fees, travel, etc.); there are no bundlers, fat cats or illegal contributions. Obama is opposed to everything America stands for,” says Executive Director Andy Martin. “But while Obama has raised almost a BILLION dollars, his opponents have raised virtually nothing. Americans can either contribute now, or pay later. If we do not succeed, Obama will.”
