Mark Kirk’s thugs attack Andy Martin at Joe’s Bar
Illinois political reformer Andy Martin promised Sunday night that Republican conservatives would defeat Mark Kirk on Tuesday night. “The people coming out of Mark Kirk’s event looked like they wanted to die,” Martin said. “I am leading the anti-Kirk movement because so-called pro-family conservatives are too afraid to stand up and be counted. But they will stab Kirk in the back on Tuesday. As for Sunday night,” Martin says, “Kirk’s bully boys tried to intimidate me at Joe’s Bar. They failed.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Kirk supporters attack Andy Martin
Chicago Police are called as Kirk’s “boys” attempt to intimidate Martin
Andy stands his ground and tells the truth about Kirk: Kirk is unfit for public office
(CHICAGO)(October 31, 2010) Supporters of military masquerader Mark Kirk attacked Andy Martin Sunday evening and attempted to intimidate Martin from exposing Kirk as a military and political fraud. Martin was outside a Kirk campaign event. Martin’s bullhorn kept broadcasting.
Martin’s loudspeaker reminded Republicans that earlier this year Kirk claimed (and Chicago media supinely reported) that he had come under fire in Afghanistan. Kirk’s claim was a “fairy tale.”
“I saw a lot of big Republican machers traipse into Kirks event at Joe’s Bar,” Martin says. “But Kirk had his ‘Praetorian Guard’ outside to harass me. Kirk’s ‘guard’ was originally disclosed by Lake County’s Colonel Ray True. The Republican big-wigs looked desultory going in, and looked like they wanted to shower on the way out. They looked unclean. They are disgusted with Kirk. They are probably disgusted with themselves as well for being afraid to stand up and tell the truth about Kirk. Kirk is a disgrace to the U. S. Navy and a disgrace to Illinois Republicans.
“Loyal Republicans are faced with an inner crisis: they know Kirk is bad for Illinois but they are not used to dumping a bad candidate and especially an imposter such as Kirk. Well, for me, the truth trumps party loyalty. I don’t agree with every Republican on the ballot, but I am voting for everyone except Kirk. The U. S. Senate is special; Kirk is not.
“Unless and until Republican leaders recognize that the Republican Party in Illinois is its own worst enemy we will continue to lose elections. In a year when Republicans nationally are winning, see Wisconsin next door as an example, we have Kirk the disgraced candidate who is barely hanging on.
“I predicted Sunday night loyal Republican conservatives are going to reject Kirk on Tuesday. We are going to defeat Kirk.
“The bullhorn will be back Monday night at Wheaton Bowl to encourage DuPage County conservatives to ‘Just Say No, to Mark Kirk,’” Martin says. “Every veteran should vote against Kirk.”
