Andy Martin: The Man Who Brought Down Mark Kirk and Destroyed Kirk’s Political Career
Palm Beach, Florida news conference Friday June 4th: “Tea Party ‘Takedown’”
“Tea Party Terminator” Andy Martin says Mark Kirk’s political career is over. Thursday Kirk was weeping to Chicago newspaper editors that he “misremembered” by lying about his military record. “Kirk did not ‘misremember’” Andy Martin says. “He suffers from the psychological disturbance of ‘stolen valor.’ Kirk is still lying.”
Andy Martin ran broadcast advertising across the state of Illinois this past January exposing Kirk’s military frauds. Martin placed letters from the Pentagon on http://www.MarkKirk.us. “For Kirk to claim he ‘forgot’ his lies is just another line of lying. Kirk lied when he said he was in Afghanistan in January ‘fighting for [Andy Martin’s] rights.’ Mark Kirk has a mental disturbance,” Martin says. “Mark Kirk’s political career is over. He is a closeted gay man that systematically and deliberately lied to Republican primary voters, and was supported by a Chicago media conspiracy of silence.
“It was not until media outside Chicago started exposing Kirk’s lies that Chicago’s corrupt media grudgingly began to tell partial truths about imposter Kirk.” Martin promises to expose more military lies about Kirk and notes Kirk has not yet addressed his bogus claim he was a “CIA agent.”
“WLS-AM’s ‘Don and Roma’ should be run out of town for their lies, misrepresentations and promotion of a military imposter,” Martin says. “Don and Roma have been promoting Kirk-the-imposter to their audience for years, and slighting honesty Republicans in the process.”
PALM BEACH [CHICAGO] NEWS CONFERENCE: Friday, June 4th
Chicago crime fighter Andy Martin is the “man who brought down Mark Kirk”
Tea Party sympathizer Andy Martin “takes down” another crooked Illinois politician and notches another win in his 44 year corruption-fighting career
“Mark Kirk’s political career is over,” Martin says. “Kirk has a mental disorder”
Illinois political corruption expert Martin was the first person to systematically investigate, analyze and disclose Mark Kirk’s stolen valor and closeted personal life.
“How sweet it is,” Martin says. “I told the ‘Tea Party truths’ about Kirk and the morons in the Illinois Republican Party establishment attacked me. Now these losers are stuck with a homosexual military fraud to run as the head of the Republican ticket. Tea, anyone? Delicious.”
“What about Kirk’s claims to have been a ‘CIA agent?’” Martin will ask Friday? “He still hasn’t owned up to that big lie.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
ATTENTION DAYBOOK/ASSIGNMENT EDITORS
ANNOUNCEMENT OF FRIDAY NEWS CONFERENCE IN PALM BEACH
Andy Martin says he promised to take down Mark Kirk after Kirk won a rigged February primary; the takedown is continuing with new blockbuster disclosures about the corrupt congressman notwithstanding Kirk’s Thursday “cry-in” to liberal Chicago newspaper editors, all of whom previously endorsed Kirk in February
In another of his Walter Mitty exaggerations Kirk also claims to have been a “CIA agent;” is he still “misremembering” that claim?

(CHICAGO)(June 4, 2010) Chicago crime fighter and anti-corruption crusader Andy Martin will hold a Palm Beach news conference today, Friday, June 4th to claim credit for ending the political career of military imposter/closeted homosexual Mark Kirk.
“Much as the Chicago Tribune and Sun-Times hate to admit it, I took down Mark Kirk,” Martin will state. “Alexi Giannoulias’ campaign used my campaign advertising and research as a starting point, and followed through with their own research. I provided the pointers on both Kirk’s sexual misrepresentations and on his inflated military career. I filed a DADT complaint against Kirk. It’s all out there on my blogs. Kirk can read it and weep.
“I beat the newspapers at their own game, by telling the truth about Kirk while they were lying to their readers. Lynn Sweet, the Sun-Times hack who appears on MSNBC, was a cheerleader for Kirk; she’s now exposed as a complete loser. Kirk had the temerity to tell the bogus Chicago media at the Union League Club in January that he was in Afghanistan ‘fighting for Andy Martin’s rights:’
“What ‘fighting’ did Mark Kirk ever do? He repeatedly claimed to have ‘fought in two wars.’ The man is a complete fraud. His crying fest to editorial writers on Thursday was just another step in his ongoing fraud schemes. Kirk hopes he can salvage his political career. Kirk is Kaput. Deal with it, Kirkster.”
Martin exposed Kirk’s homosexuality and military fraud in radio ads that were broadcast across Illinois beginning on December 28, 2009 and continuing through February 1, 2010. Listen to the ads at: http://www.andyforussenator.com/andys_ads.htm.
[Two of the spots are on the web site, the others are being restored.]
Martin created a media firestorm as Chicago media tried to demonize Martin for telling the truth about Kirk in Martin’s radio ads. Martin also documented his claims of military fraud concerning Kirk by posting documents on Martin’s own anti-Kirk web site [www.MarkKirk.us] showing Kirk had never served in Afghanistan.
“For forty-four years I have been fighting political corruption in Chicago and Illinois politics. The only thanks I have received is a continuing smack in the face from the media. Chicago media have lived a lie for the past half century. Media lies keep crooked Illinois politicians in power. Rick Pearson, a creepy writer at the Chicago Tribune, is a Kirk sycophant. Pearson is now disgraced and exposed for his own corruption.
“I have always worked to find the facts, and searched for the truth, and I did so during the 2009-2010 primary election. But when the truth and facts hit Chicago’s airwaves on December 28th, once again media attacked me for exposing Mark Kirk as one of the greatest frauds in American political history. So far, local media have barely played ‘catch-up’ and only scratched the tip of the iceberg of Kirk’s military fraud. Kirk is 100 times worse than Connecticut’s Richard Blumenthal. Blumenthal lied a few times. Kirk lied about his entire career, for over a decade, over and over again, in his congressional materials, his campaign materials, everywhere and in every aspect of his public career.
“When my senate campaign started broadcasting the facts on December 28th, Chicago’s media morons responded by attacking me for telling the truth about Mark Kirk. What losers. If ever there was an ‘I told you so’ moment in American politics, this is it. I warned Republican voters that they were going to destroy the party if they voted for Kirk, but no one wanted to hear the truth. Well, we have more and more and more ‘truth’ about Mark Kirk to come.
“It’s just beginning.
“Kirk’s military fraud and homosexuality are now jeopardizing the entire statewide and local Illinois Republican ticket. I’ll have more to say about that very shortly.
”Ironically, Channel 7 WLS-TV devoted virtually an entire 90-minute broadcast debate in January to allowing its ‘journalists’ to trash me for running ads telling the truth about Kirk. Channel 7’s Andy Shaw and Charles Thomas also owe me an apology. I have a copy of the tape. This is one of the greatest media scandals, and media embarrassments, in recent American media history. The truth was out there in the open, and Chicago media attacked the truth and attacked the truth-teller. Is it any wonder the state of Illinois is dying? That ordinary Illinoisans feel betrayed? In Illinois, the media are as crooked as the politicians.
“Ironically, the only one who paid any attention to me was Alexi Giannoulias. His people were quietly observing my campaign from a distance and taking down everything I disclosed about Kirk. Alexi’s people then did their own additional research and verified the truth of my allegations.
“There is a lesson here for Republicans: pay attention to the truth and the facts. Don’t sweep a candidate’s lies under the carpet and expect to get away with it.
“I promised to take down Mark Kirk, and I have delivered. In my opinion, party loyalty does not extend to promoting political fraud. I support the rest of the Illinois Republican ticket but I will see to it that Mark Kirk is run out of politics.
“There is lots more to come of my anti-Kirk campaign.”
Martin is in Palm Beach visiting relatives. After his news conference he will celebrate with a “tea party at Testa’s” [Restaurant].
