NEW YORK NEWS CONFERENCE; Investigation begins into Elena Kagan’s private life in Massachusetts
Obama author and investigator Andy Martin will announce Friday that he is launching investigations into Elena Kagan’s private and professional life in Cambridge, Massachusetts and at Harvard Law School. “Since others are concentrating on Kagan’s ‘public’ record, what little there is, we will focus on her personal lifestyle, and specifically evidenced of same-sex relationships,” Martin says. “I note that the so-called ‘mainstream media’ are apparently doing no investigation in Cambridge. The pro-gay New York Times and others have adopted a ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy concerning Kagan’s alleged lesbian links. They are once again simply prostrating themselves before Obama and Kagan. The so-called ‘media’ are betraying the American people.” Martin is inviting persons with knowledge of Kagan’s personal lifestyle to contact his Internet newspaper.
Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin says that mainstream media are failing to look into Elena Kagan’s private life in Cambridge, Massachusetts
Martin says that in the absence of any public record, Kagan’s private life is even more critical to an understanding of how she would act as a judge

MARTIN INVITES PERSONS WITH KNOWLEDGE OR EVIDENCE CONCERNING KAGAN’S PERSONAL LIFE TO CONTACT HIM BY MAIL, E-MAIL OR PHONE
MARTIN SAYS JUDGES AND LAWYERS ARE ENGAGING IN A “CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE” CONCERNING KAGAN’S PRIVATE LIFE
(NEW YORK)(May 14, 2010) ContrarianCommentary.com’s Executive Editor, Andy Martin, will hold a New York City news conference Friday, May 14th to announce that he will lead investigative teams to Cambridge, Massachusetts to investigative Elena Kagan’s private life and personal lifestyle. “Ms. Kagan’s supporters have said she is not a lesbian and has not lived in same-sex relationships,” Martin says. “If so, we should come back empty-handed. But if we find evidence of same-sex relationships, and I have every expectation that we will, Ms. Kagan will be guilty of misleading the American people by proxy, and she will have to step down as a Supreme Court nominee. Deception by a nominee is completely unacceptable.
“Personally, I don’t care about Kagan’s private life. But as an investigative columnist I am interested in persons who engage in deception and denial, and who seek to defraud the American people. The cliché that the ‘cover-up is worse than the offense’ probably applies to Kagan’s sexuality. If she would simply own up to her private lifestyle that would probably end the matter. But her concealment is creating hydraulic pressure for more extensive inquiry into her past and present personal life.
“Given that Kagan has successfully concealed all of her own views over the past three decades, and comes before the American people as a cipher with no family of her own and no record of her own except holding staff and administrative jobs for others, we have a right to conduct a searching pre-employment background investigation into who and what she is.
“No one today would hire a mid-level corporate executive without a complete background investigation into both the proposed employee’s personal and professional lives. Yet the Senate is apparently adopting the Obama’ administration’s ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ approach to Kagan’s personal life. Why? Is a job on the U. S. Supreme Court less important than a mid-level corporate position? If the U. S. Senate is too silly or too skittish to search for the truth, we are not.
“It is a truism that our judicial systems are ruled by cronyism and concealment. In particular, lawyers fear retaliation from judges if an attorney stands up and tells the truth. That is why our courts are so corrupt and dysfunctional; they are ruled through a conspiracy of silence. Because I do not practice law, I am not afraid to tell the truth. Never have been, never will be.
“We are launching our investigations in Cambridge, and we will scour that city for sources of information and evidence concerning Kagan’s personal and professional life.
“In a Saturday news conference tomorrow we will offer our insight and analysis of Kagan’s efforts to deflect the ‘lesbian issue’ as well as detailing our own ‘hotline’ that will counter the White House’s own pro-Kagan hotline.
“Finally, there is the ‘hypocrisy’ issue,” Martin states. “Kagan made a moral issue of opposing ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’ If the issue is ‘moral’ as she claims, then why is she afraid to stand up and openly profess her own personal solidarity with same-sex relationships? What is her personal morality? Did she hire lesbians to work at Harvard Law School? Did she promote ‘gay’ legal studies and seminars? Good points. But no one knows because the media are engaged in a cover-up and abdication of their responsibility.
“We invite any and every American with knowledge of Kagan’s private life or lifestyle, or years at Harvard Law School, to contact us, either anonymously or by identifying themselves, by e-mail, phone or regular mail. We will sift through the evidence and seek to separate the wheat from the chaff. As I have said in successfully investigating Barack Obama’s past in Hawai’i, we are simply trying to search for the truth and trying to find the facts. ‘Just the facts, ma’am.’”
