FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
ATTENTION NEW YORK DAYBOOK/ASSIGNMENT EDITORS
Republican Presidential Candidate Andy Martin holds a New York news conference today, Tuesday, June 7th as he continues to attack Rep. Anthony Weiner for “Weinergate”
Martin says Weiner could also face criminal prosecution
Martin says former Speaker Nancy Pelosi has joined his request to make the investigation of Weiner a bipartisan effort
Martin says Weiner has yet to explain his connection with pornstar Ginger Lee
Martin says the fact that Weiner lied to the House and to the public seals his fate and mandates his removal from office
(NEW YORK)(June 7, 2011) Friday, June 3rd, Corruption-fighting Republican Presidential Candidate Andy Martin called for the resignation of Congressman Anthony Weiner. Based on new information he had received, Saturday, June 4th Martin cut short a campaign swing in Florida and flew to New York to personally supervise a sex investigation of the liberal lothario. Within forty-eight hours, Rep. Nancy Pelosi had joined Martin’s call for an ethics investigation and Weiner’s career was shattered.
Martin is very likely Washington’s most experienced investigator of congressional abuses, having been involved as far back as the 1960’s and 1970’s investigating congressional sex scandals and other cronyism and corruption.
Martin will hold a New York news conference today, Tuesday, June 7th at 2:00 P.M. to renew his request that House Speaker John Boehner initiate an impeachment investigation against Representative Anthony Weiner.
Martin is a former adjunct professor of law at City University of New York; he has over thirty years of experience investigating and exposing congressional imbroglios going back to the Wayne Hayes sex scandal and even earlier House embarrassments.
“The Torah tells us not to rejoice in the downfall of our adversaries,” Martin says. “And so I am not exultant at the political and personal deconstruction of Rep. Anthony Weiner. It is a sad day for Congress, for Weiner’s family and for Weiner himself.
“Nevertheless, Congress must investigate and lay bare the full story about Mr. Weiner’s indiscretions and peccadilloes. Weiner could also face criminal prosecution. ‘Weinergate’ makes former Congressman Christopher Lee look like a choirboy by comparison.
“Decades ago I became one of the nation’s first conservative congressional investigators. But in digging for the truth I never hesitated to cross ideological lines. I remember working with Jack Anderson on one investigation. Truth and only truth was always the goal. That’s why I have survived and succeeded as long as I have.
“I knew right away that there was much more to the Weinergate scandal, which is why I was the first to call for Weiner’s resignation, as reported by the New York Daily News. I also knew that there would be federal property involved, and thus potentially prosecutable federal criminal violations.
“All of these factors were what motivated me to cut short my campaign swing in Florida and to return early for my Saturday night news conference at LaGuardia at which I outlined the case for impeachment against Weiner.
“As a conservative and as a Republican Presidential candidate who helped bring down MSNBC’s favorite liberal icon, I am delighted that Weiner is trying to hang on. Weiner has become a millstone for the Democratic Party.
“But as a legal expert and someone who has been known for decades as a skillful courtroom interrogator, I must advise Mr. Weiner that his days in public office are at an end. He is only prolonging the pain for himself and his wife. If Weiner truly loves his wife, he will resign immediately. If he loves himself more than he loves his wife, he will try to hang on for a few days. But he will not avoid or evade removal from congress.
“Saturday night I called on former Speaker Pelosi to join in a bipartisan demand for an investigation. Speaker Pelosi has now joined my request and agreed that Weiner must be investigated. Therefore, the matter of Weiner’s investigation is no longer a partisan issue.
“I don’t have a bad word to say about most of my adversaries in the Republican presidential campaign as individuals. But Romney, Pawlenty and Cain are running as Washington ‘outsiders.’ George W. Bush proved you could not go to Washington as an outsider and succeed. The White House is no place for on-the-job training.
“The idea that Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty and Herman Cain can simply become president and wave a magic wand is, frankly, ludicrous. What I bring to the table as a Republican presidential candidate is more than thirty years of Washington experience as an independent corruption fighter and investigator.
“Unlike my adversaries, I know how Washington works because I have been investigating and exposing the place for decades. Mr. Weiner is only the latest in a long list of miscreants I have either exposed or helped bring down. In other words, only if you already know how the system works can you actually pull the levers of power to tear down the cronyism and corruption that is the cancer in our nation’s capital today. (Of course, that’s why the media and the political establishment are trying to take down my candidacy; they do not want to upset their cozy relationships.)
“Bus tours won’t bring down the temple, and claiming lack of experience as a qualification for office won’t do it either. Should I also bring up Jimmy Carter, another president who ran on his lack of experience as a qualification for office? Only someone who has a history and a track record of independence and integrity can expect to succeed. I have that resume.
“The way I targeted Mr. Weiner reflects my willingness to dig up the bodies, and tear down the established order in Washington, the cronyism and corruption that has eluded president-after-president. I am the only Republican presidential candidate with that proven track record of fighting and exposing misfeasance.
“For my colleagues in the Tea Party, who seem to be enamored of inexperience as a job qualification, I can only say, most humbly, that ‘I am the only candidate who can achieve your goals. I did not become a reformer in 2009. I have been a reformer for decades.’
“If you don’t believe in the potency of my experience, just ask Representative Anthony Weiner. While he may not be willing to write a job reference for me, he knows that when Andy Martin attacks, the bad guys run for cover. When Andy Martin comes calling, the game is up, just as Weiner’s days in office are now numbered. I demanded his impeachment; within forty-eight hours he was on the way to oblivion.
“The fact that Weiner lied to his colleagues, to the media and to the American people mandates that he be removed from office. The outcome is inevitable. How long he prolongs the agony is up to him.”
[Monday evening, Martin gave an electrifying speech in Bristol, New Hampshire joining the fight to block a controversial power project and promising those present he would expose and bring down the cronyism and corruption that would endanger the lives of New Hampshire residents. Stay tuned for details. Martin is the only presidential candidate who actually breaks real news, instead of merely appearing for photo ops and regurgitating insipid talking points.]
