ANDY MARTIN: I’m overjoyed by the large protests that greeted Glenn Beck in Illinois
Illinois political reformer Andy Martin launched protests against Glenn Beck’s coming to Illinois as part of an event sponsored by corrupt Illinois Republicans. Martin protested in front of the News Corporation headquarters building in midtown Manhattan where Fox News is located. Saturday night hundreds of demonstrators greeted Beck when he appeared to promote the Illinois Republican Party. Martin is overjoyed by the turnout, which he views as a mandate to continue fighting Illinois’ rigged election laws. Martin is opposing Mark Kirk for the U. S. Senate.

ATTENTION DAYBOOK/ASSIGNMENT EDITORS
ANNOUNCEMENT OF SUNDAY NEWS CONFERENCE IN CHICAGO
Andy Martin is “overjoyed and overwhelmed” by the large opposition to the corrupt Illinois Republican Party’s charade at Right Nation 2010 Saturday night
Martin triggered protests by his warning to Glenn Beck to “stay away” and avoid links to Pat Brady and the other crooks that control Mark Kirk’s Illinois Republican Party
Martin says Illinois Republicans and conservatives are frustrated and angry at the fraudulent election choice they have been given in the “Closeted Mr. Kirk”
(CHICAGO)(September 19, 2010, 2010) Illinois Reform Party U. S. senate candidate Andy Martin, who is fighting to stay on the ballot and is planning to run as a write-in candidate against Mark Kirk, will hold a Sunday news conference to express his jubilation at the vociferous opposition which greeted Glenn Beck Saturday night. Beck’s appearance was delayed because of the protests. Martin is normally a Republican, and he is supporting the Republican Party slate with the exception of the “closeted” Mark Kirk.
“When I started the ball rolling to organize a protest against Illinois Republican crooks trying to raise money by using Glenn Beck, I had no idea hundreds of people would respond,” Martin will state. “Many of the protesters were liberals, but that’s all right. As an Episcopalian myself I was delighted to see an Episcopal priest on the front lines. Liberals and conservatives are angry and fed up with our rigged Illinois election system.
“2010 Candidates were required to file for office a year ago. The world has changed greatly in the last year, but Illinois voters are still locked in with and stuck with candidates who were determined a year ago. This is not democracy. Both Democrats and Republicans need to raise their voices in protest.
“We need an electoral process in Illinois where voters get to vote in warm weather, not in the dead of winter. We need to have candidates who are chosen closer to the general election, not candidates who are required to file for office a year in advance of the general election.
“Chicago media lied during the primary election and ignored overwhelming evidence of military fraud by Mark Kirk. Voters were fooled and rigged again.
“We need to launch a bipartisan crusade. I am not afraid to sit down and talk with liberals any more than I am afraid to sit down with my conservative brethren. If we are going to solve the problems of this nation, we need to come together. For example, we need to rebuild our manufacturing capacity; German manufacturing has shown the way to prosperity and economic stability in this regard. Manufacturing creates good jobs at good wages. Instead of trying to divide a shrinking pie, we need to rebuild an expanding economy where everyone has a fair opportunity to share in the fruits of our financial success.
“I may be a conservative, but I am a conservative who cares about the poor, and not just about the affluent. There but for the Grace of God go I. You can’t be a real Christian without manifesting love for those in need.
“Pat Brady is paying lawyers to keep me off the ballot. Why? He knows Republicans want to vote for me, not the slimy pipsqueak Mark Kirk. Kirk lied about his teaching career, he lied about his role in the cabal that sabotaged the Republican agenda, he lied about his military service, he lies about everything. The man’s entire life is a lie. He is a disgrace to every and any Republican who votes for him.
“There were many honest conservatives who turned out Saturday night at Right Nation 2010, and I respect and admire them. But they are being used and abused by Illinois’ political shysters such as Pat Brady and Mark Kirk.
“Andrew Breitbart was way off base when he taunted the sidewalk protesters. Breitbart had no idea he was being used as a stooge by Illinois Republicans to legitimize their corrupt ‘Combine’ operations.
“I stand with the people of Illinois, and Friday I stood before the ‘Tower of Power’ in Manhattan at News Corporation headquarters and warned Glenn Beck he would be met with protests if he came to Illinois to act as a cover for corruption. He’s better than that. And he was met with opposition. Saturday night, the People of Illinois stood with me,” Martin will state.
Martin has a Monday morning hearing in Circuit Court seeking to reverse the decision of the Machine-dominatedState Elections Board. Martin has filed to run as a write-in if he is kept off the ballot. He joins U. S. Senator Lisa Murkowski in that regard.
