FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Andy Martin says that HillBuzz.org has failed to deliver on its promised release of “documentation” to confirm their allegations of Mark Kirk’s involvement in a Republican Party sex scandal.
(CHICAGO)(August 4, 2010) Last week a blog that was formerly very closely associated with corrupt Illinois Republican Party leader Pat Brady stated that they had “documentation” linking Mark Kirk to the Illinois Republican Party sex scandal. Read their own words for yourself and see if you agree with me.
Here is what they wrote:
Also this weekend we were provided with documentation on further collusion up the GOP ladder of command that proves members of Mark Kirk’s Senate campaign were complicit in this coverup, in pay grades higher than Roupas. It’s damaging stuff, which we don’t want to hand over to the Media, because the last thing we want to see is Senator Giannoulias. We’re giving Pat Brady until the end of this week to end this scandal by forcing needed resignations in the Cook County GOP. If that doesn’t happen, then we’re going to have to come forward with what we know…and it goes all the way up to Kirk himself.
As of today, HillBuzz.org has failed to deliver on their promise to release documentation if Lee Roupas was not removed as Cook County Republican Chair by last Friday. Roupas is still Chairman and no documents have been released. Since the original link above, the controversy has escalated with claims that Pat Brady has made anti-gay statements, triggering demands for Brady’s dismissal. But still no “documentation.”
Pat Brady is heading for a Republican National Committee meeting in Kansas City later this week. Brady’s defense in KC will be that “nothing happened” and that if anything happened, “it’s been dealt with.” Brady denies making anti-gay slurs.
As my readers know, my integrity is my currency. I publicized the claim by HillBuzz.org that they had “documentation.” That documentation has yet to surface. With me, I follow the truth, and only the truth. I don’t like to point out that Kirk’s critics have failed to deliver on their promise to release documentation, but that’s the fact. What gives?
I would rather be honest and point out a default by Kirk’s critics than let my readers believe I would endorse the tactic of making promises to release information and then failing to do so.
My own independent investigation into the Republican Party’s sex scandal is not linked to HillBuzz.org, and I will be releasing more information today after the Lake Forest Day Parade at a scheduled news conference.
As for HillBuzz.org, it would seem that they have reached a “put up or shut up” point in their attacks. If they do not actually have the Kirk “documentation,” they never should have lied and said they did. If they do have the Kirk documents, then the HillBuzz.org deadline for action has passed, and still no documents.
If you have information about any of this, by all means call my offices and ask to speak to an investigator. In the meantime, I am merely pointing out that someone broke a promise to produce “documentation” if certain conditions were not met, and the conditions have not been met. That’s a no-no in my book.
As of today, Pat Brady and Mark Kirk (and Lee Roupas) have won a round against HillBuzz.org. And that’s a fact.
