FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Andy Martin says that Senator Mark Kirk is being asked to betray conservative Republican voters who nominated and elected him
Martin says Kirk should do the right thing and come out of the closet now that he has been sworn in
Martin says that the conflicts arising out of Kirk’s closeted gay lifestyle will be a continuing and constant problem over the next six years
(WASHINGTON, DC)(December 6, 2010) A year ago, December 28th, 2009, I held a Chicago news conference to release the information that Republican Party rumors alleged that Congressman (now Senator) Mark Kirk was a closeted homosexual. My statements were based, in part, on objective facts that had been posted and are still posted on the Internet:
[listen to Segment Two]
I pointed out the obvious: that if elected, Kirk would be subjected to pressure and blackmail from homosexual activists because of Kirk’s closeted homosexual lifestyle.
Not surprisingly, the Chicago media attacked me instead of Kirk. I had no problem with Kirk being gay; but I did have a problem with his closeted lifestyle. The mainstream media are totally under the control of gay sympathizers.
Kirk was eventually outed by gay activists last June after he voted against repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” earlier this year. After being exposed as a homosexual by the homosexual community, Kirk recruited his former wife to promise that Kirk would vote “for” repeal of DADT if he was elected to the senate.
Because of his psychiatric problems, namely a pathological addiction to lying about his military service and personal history, Kirk was barely elected to the U. S. Senate on November 2nd.
Now, just a week after being sworn in, Kirk is being targeted by supporters of repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t tell.” Anti-DADT repeal Senator John McCain came to Illinois during the fall campaign to cover up Kirk’s personal peccadilloes. Will Kirk now betray McCain’s support?
Mark Kirk is a ticking time bomb for the Republican Party. Kirk is following in the footsteps of his friend Mark Foley, the closeted pedophile congressman who embarrassed and then defeated Republican Party reelection prospects in 2006.
I don’t have a problem with Kirk’s homosexuality. I do have a problem with Kirk’s remaining closeted while serving in national office for the generally conservative Republican Party. Illinoisans deserve better than six more years of a senator who is being blackmailed by gay activists. As that great Obama theologian Reverend Jeremiah Wright would say, “Kirk’s chickens have come home to roost, one week after he was sworn in.”
Following is the text of an e-mail being issued today by supporters of repealing DADT
The President has been on the phones.
He's asking senators to end "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Now, with a vote coming any day, we need as many Americans as possible to join the effort.
Senator Mark Kirk's vote is critical: The last time repeal came up in the Senate, he voted against it -- and it failed by just two votes.
Now that a Pentagon study confirms that ending this policy would not negatively affect our military readiness or troop morale, there's a real possibility we could get him to change his mind.
Call Sen. Kirk at (202) 224-2854 now. Tell him that Illinois supports the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" -- and he should, too.
Then click here to let us know how it went.
"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" discriminates against patriotic men and women who sacrifice so much for our country -- gay and lesbian members of our military who deserve to be treated equally.
The Pentagon's findings are just the latest signal that our troops are ready for this change. And top military leaders across the board -- from Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Admiral Michael Mullen to Defense Secretary Robert Gates to General Colin Powell -- have publicly voiced their support for repeal.
Sen. Kirk needs to know we're counting on him to stand up and support this important legislation regardless of his party affiliation. He needs to know we're watching and ready to respond to discrimination of any kind.
He needs to know a majority of Americans believe, as the President said, we must end this law "because it is the right thing to do" -- that those who are brave enough to stand up and serve our country deserve to do so openly.
It's up to us to tell him.
Support the President's efforts and hop on the phone.
Call Sen. Kirk today at (202) 224-2854 to tell him to do the right thing.
Then please let us know what you heard:
