 (CHICAGO)(June 30, 2012) Internet Powerhouse and Conservative blogger Andy Martin says the Illinois Center Right Coalition (“ICRC”) is the only organized political committee that has called for removal of Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady and his cabal. “Truly, the ICRC has lit a candle in the deepest darkness,” Andy says.

“Today the Illinois Republican Party does not even have an office. It is a ‘shadow’ political organization that exists solely on paper by virtue of state law and runs with only a phone number, fax machine and post office box.

“The Illinois Republican Party is a thugocracy run like a prison chain gang by former prison guard Randy Pollard, who is the downstate ‘enforcer’ for the Chicago-based ‘Combine’ of corrupt Republican and Democratic Party business interests. Pat Brady is their front man.

“Not every Republican official is corrupt. Many are just timid. They are afraid to speak up and challenge the disgraceful performance of Illinois Republicans. In 2010 they couldn’t even stop a governor that promised to raise taxes if he was reelected (Pat Quinn). The state legislative leadership is corrupt, incompetent and just plain pathetic.

“Illinois Democrats have scorn and contempt for Republicans.

“At a recent Republican ‘state convention,’ delegates were ‘elected’ in secret, in violation of state law. The ‘highlight’ of the ‘convention’ was childish name-calling by Brady. No real voting was allowed by the delegates and party reform efforts were stifled and stymied.

“While the ICRC is far from a powerful operation, the fact that any conservatives has the guts and grit to stand up and expose the obvious, that the Republican Party is corrupt from Pat Brady on down to Randy Pollard and his downstate punks, stands as a testament to the painful truth and reality. Most self-proclaimed ‘conservatives’ just wait quietly for any crumbs that fall from the high tables of corruption inChicago.

“I hope the ICRC will not bend in the face of financial pressure from senile former-conservative-and-today-Mark-Kirk-love-bug Jack Roeser and others. Roeser threw the ICRC convention on the street after the ICRC advocated for Brady’s removal. Roeser, Brady, Pollard and Pollard’s downstate castratos make a joke of the term ‘conservative.’

“Recently the Illinois Republican leadership was caught in a criminal money laundering scheme orchestrated byChicagobusinessman and political wannabe Ken Griffin and his wife Anne. I hope the ICRC passes a resolution today condemningGriffinfor further corrupting the party with criminal cash. What were the Griffins thinking?

“Onward ICRC. ReformingIllinoispolitics is not easy, but it is a never-ending necessity. Stay true to the course of trying to ‘repeal and reform’ the Illinois Republican Party. Now where have I heard that phrase before?

“Finally, we should remember the ultimate ignominy for Illinois Republican leaders: they are the jokers who gave the nation Barack Obama for president. Without Illinois Republican Party corruption and connivance Obama would never have become a national ‘leader,’” Andy observes. “Go ICRC.”
