Andy Martin’s “Blockbustier” news conference tonight on Mark Kirk’s secret life and former spouse

“Holy, holy, where’s Vertolli?”

(CHICAGO)(October 30, 2010) Illinois corruption fighter Andy Martin will hold a 7:30 News conference tonight at the Lincoln Restaurant to accuse Mark Kirk of “raping” his former wife Kimberly Vertolli. Martin will then make a presentation to the College of Complexes on the 2010 U. S. Senate Race,;

Andy Martin, a conservative Republican, is leading efforts to defeat Mark Kirk for the U. S. Senate. Martin says Kirk is a disgrace to Illinois, and a disgrace to the Republican Party. Other than Kirk, Martin is (with some reservations) voting a straight Republican ticket.

“Emotional rape can be just as invasive and just as devastating to the victim as physical rape,” Martin says. “The evidence is overwhelming that Mark Kirk emotionally raped Kimberly Vertolli and discarded her when she no longer served his political needs.

“Now Kirk is asking women to vote for him. What kind of a woman would vote for an emotional rapist?

“Last December when I exposed the rumors, all of which turned out to be true, about Mark Kirk's secret sexual identity, many people were offended. The Puritan Ethnic still pervades our public life. We play ‘pretend’ games with the private lives of our public officials. But let us take a liberal icon as a first example. Who would have voted for John Kennedy for president if they had known of his secret life as a rake? Very few people. The Kennedy brothers’ cavorting with Marilyn Monroe and other escapades would have horrified Americans.

“More recently, the ‘story book’ romance of John Edwards and Elizabeth Edwards was shattered by the disclosure of his illicit relationship with another woman. The Clintons? Go figure.

“When ‘Mark met Kimberly’ he was an aspiring politician in 2000. The rumors about his sexuality were already circulating. Kirk needed to put an end to speculation that he was a homosexual. Ms. Vertolli was a high-energy individual who was probably also highly susceptible to being misled. Kirk was able to use Vertolli as a foil for his 2000 campaign.

“We don’t know if Ms. Vertolli was in fact a willing complicitor, i.e. if she was trying to conceal her own lesbianism, or whether she was Kirk’s victim, but she played along with the ruse for years. They lived separate lives and Vertolli does not appear to have questioned why her husband was cruising Washington’s gay bars. Lesbian web sites always refer to Kirk’s ‘cruising’ as a mark of his sexuality:

“The reality is that while ‘straight’ people may not know who is gay, gay people almost always can decipher who is gay and who isn’t. Why do gays claim Kirk? Why did gay activist Mike Rogers ‘out’ Kirk after Kirk voted against repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell?’

“There is no doubt that attitudes toward homosexual behavior are changing. But certain truths persist. People such as Kirk who ‘closet’ themselves are exposed to blackmail. Public officials are legitimately called on to vote on gay issues such as gay marriage, gays in the military, etc. Gays have been especially critical of Kirk because he has voted against their agenda and, in their minds, betrayed their efforts to allow Kirk to remain as a closeted public official.

“All of which leads us back to Ms. Vertolli. After Kirk and Vertolli were divorced, we ordered and analyzed the divorce file. The settlement was peculiar. Kirk gave Vertolli much more money than a professional woman who was always employed would have received, given that there we no children in the marriage.

“Although I did run ads raising the issues about the rumors (now facts) about Kirk’s sexuality, I paid no ongoing attention to Vertolli. She had resumed a private life.

“That is, until Ms. Vertolli suddenly came crashing into public view on August 4th of this year claiming she was an abused wife whose marriage had been destroyed by another woman:

“A year and a half after being divorced, Vertolli was manifesting the posttraumatic behavior of emotional rape. She was a woman with a sham marriage to a gay man, no children, no life and no way forward. She blamed ‘another woman’ as the cause of her angst, but there is no evidence that Dodi McCracken was having sex with Kirk. Vertolli's ‘denial’ that Kirk was gay was more of a confirmation that he was.

“Today’s New York Times [October 30th] says Kirk is appealing to women in the closing days of the campaign. But have women really considered what kind of a person would emotionally rape a woman, use her as a beard for his own selfish purposes, and then emotionally abandon her when she was no longer of any political utility?

“If a straight man had acted in that kind of abusive manner, women’s’ journals would be all over the story. But because Kirk is a homosexual, media are afraid to discuss Kirk’s manipulative personality and the way he seduced and abandoned Kimberly Vertolli for his own mendacious political purposes.

“Kirk reacted quickly to Vertolli’s latest outbursts by offering her a position as an ‘adviser.’ Has anyone seen Vertolli around lately? Advising Kirk? Kirk’s offer was another maneuver to quiet Vertolli until after the election. But she fell for it. Victims always do (“this time will be different”):

“How long is Kirk going to be allowed to get away with his abusive conduct? He was for cap and trade before he was against it. Kirk was a close confidant of President George Bush before he called Bush a liar last week and said Bush lied to the American people.

“It is Kirk himself who is the pathological liar. (We'll deal with his military lies tomorrow, as well as disclosing Kirk's blackmail conundrum.)

“Sadly, one of the biggest victims of Kirk’s pathologically abusive personality was his former wife, Kimberly Vertolli,” Martin will conclude. “How will voter react? They can’t say they ‘didn’t know’ who and what Kirk is.

“For shame, Illinois.”
