FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
ATTENTION DAYBOOK/ASSIGNMENT EDITORS
ANNOUNCEMENT OF SUNDAY NEWS CONFERENCE IN
Andy Martin says that persistent allegations of sexual harassment by Jeremy Rose, a factotum of Illinois Republican Party leaders, and by others, mandates an independent inquiry into their behavior
Martin says that Mark Kirk’s closeted homosexuality is attracting a louche crowd to the Republican Party
Martin says it is an open secret that the Illinois Republican Party is manipulated and controlled by gay men such as Mark Kirk’s brain truster John McGovern
“Republicans never learn. They think they can pretend the truth will not come out, that allegations of a cover-up by Republican State Chairman Pat Brady and Cook County Chairman Lee Roupas will be sufficient to deflect the matter,” Martin will state.
“The Chicago Young Republicans have developed a reputation-- deserved or not—as a gay friendly group within the gay friendly leadership cadre of the Illinois Republican Party.
“Personally, I believe everyone should be welcome in the Republican Party,” Martin will continue. “But facts are facts. And behavior is behavior. Politics and political events are no places for sexual acting out.
“Pat Brady recruited gay activist Kevin DuJan and DuJan’s pro-Hillary contingent to support John McCain in the 2008 election. The gays know who they are, and they know Mark Kirk is one of them. In fact, after I told Republican Primary voters Mark Kirk was gay, gay leaders themselves eventually stepped forward and confirmed my allegations:
“If Republicans want to elect a gay
“Moreover, while all should be welcome, the Republican Party is the more restrained of the two major parties. Sexual harassment is not and should not be tolerated or accepted, or covered up, by Illinois Republican leaders. We can’t claim we are for morality, and then tolerate immorality in our midst.
“It has been my own view that the ‘Chicago Young Republicans’ have become a de facto gay group within the Republican Party. That is why I view the allegations of sexual harassment and intimidation so seriously.
“I am also concerned that Pat Brady, who never misses an opportunity to demonstrate his bad judgment, is covering up the sexual harassment scandal. Behind the scenes no doubt we will find Mark Kirk’s majordomo, John McGovern and others. Lee Roupas has already been accused of seeking to ‘bury’ the allegations that young ‘switch hitters’ such as Jeremy Rose were badgering women even as they were accused of being too involved with men.
“I’m not exactly a prude myself. But there are ways to interact in politics, and ways not to behave. If these kids were not raised properly by their parents, not told the facts of life and social etiquette, and can’t control their hormones, I am happy to sit them down and give them the ‘rules’ governing political behavior and social behavior.
“I absolutely want the young people to have a good time. But they can’t get rowdy when they are involved with party functions. Pat Brady and Mark Kirk have no idea of how to act in loco parentis. Even gay activist Mike Rogers accused Kirk of poor sexual judgment.
“The entire situation is a mess, and it calls for leadership which Republican leaders are refusing to provide. Sunday we take the first step by opening an investigation. Later we will announce the results. Pat Brady and Mark Kirk should not be allowed to contaminate the entire statewide Republican Party by encouraging sexual hijinks by younger members of the party.
“Sadly, I am the only Republican leader/independent with the stature and the commitment to truth and justice willing to stand up and take the first step in unraveling this sexual conspiracy. But I am going to do it.”
