ANDY MARTIN: Gay media, organizations blackmail Mark Kirk

Illinois corruption fighter Andy Martin says an interview of gay activist Mike Rogers which recently came to light indicates that Rogers does not consider “rumors” about Mark Kirk’s homosexuality to be “rumors.” Rogers says Kirk is gay. Martin says gay media and gay organizations were blackmailing Kirk: “As long as Kirk quietly pursued gay issues, he was immune from being ‘outed.’ Once Kirk voted against ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ gays exposed Kirk as a hypocrite and fraud. Kirk is subject to future blackmail.” Martin asks why Republican Chairman Pat Brady, who attacked Martin for telling the truth about Kirk, is still chairman. Pat Brady and mark Kirk are leading Illinois Republican candidates down the road to defeat. “October is going to be a very ‘long month’ for Mark Kirk,” Martin says. “Blackmail ain’t beanbag.”

Andy offers Mark Kirk a new opening

(CHICAGO)(August 13, 2010) Gay news media and blogs continue to discuss Mark Kirk’s homosexuality:

“AdamFoxie drew my attention to an earlier, overlooked interview that was even more explosive about Mark Kirk,” Andy Martin says:

“ featured an interview with Mike Rogers which has some of the most devastating accusations against Kirk. Mike Rogers is quoted as saying:

‘I thought everyone in Illinois politics already knew Kirk was gay,’ Rogers told EDGE. ‘It’s not a rumor and it’s not new. I’ve met the man. He is gay. I didn’t think this would even be a story and wasn’t seeking out coverage.’

“The author of the Rogers interview goes on to attack me for being a ‘right-wing extremist’ but that is typical left-wing nonsense. I am a mainstream Republican. No one says I am a ‘RINO’ like Mark Kirk. The only extremist in the senate race is Mark Kirk; he is extremely closeted and extremely contemptuous of Republican Party voters and Republican values.

“I told the truth about Mark Kirk in my advertising. Now the gays admit it. But the gays were suspiciously silent about Kirk until he stabbed them in the back and voted against the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’

“In effect, gays were blackmailing Kirk. As long as he voted the way gays wanted, they kept the ‘silence’ about his homosexuality. The minute Kirk betrayed them, they betrayed him.

“Kirk recently issued a ‘statement’ through his ex-wife Kimberly Vertolli, reversing himself once again and now saying he will now vote to repeal DADT. The blackmail continues.

“If Kirk was effectively being blackmailed before, as gays now belatedly admit, why won't he be blackmailed in the future? There is a lot more dirt on Kirk that we have not yet released. Kirk is a virtual ‘blackmail magnet.’ That is why I previously called on Mark Kirk to withdraw as a candidate. He is a complete fraud and disaster for every Illinois Republican candidate.

“Republican Chairman Pat Brady attacked me and said I was ‘not a Republican’ because I told the truth about Mark Kirk. Why is Pat Brady still Chairman of the Illinois Republican Party? He engineered a cover-up to protect Kirk; that cover-up has now backfired and endangered every Illinois Republican candidate.

“I believe in the right to privacy. I do not believe in demonizing homosexuality. Mark Kirk’s private life should be his own, as long as he remains a private citizen. But when Kirk tries to defraud Republican voters, and when Kirk is being blackmailed by gay media and organizations, then I think real Republicans and every loyal Illinoisan has a right to know the truth,” Martin says. “Blackmail ain’t beanbag,”

“If Mark Kirk comes out of the closet, I will support his right to run as an openly gay Republican. As long as he is a liar, he forfeits his legitimacy as a human being and as a potential political leader.”
