Hannity uses Andy Martin to comment on Barack Obama’s dangerous associations:
Yes, THE Andy Martin who started the Obama is a Muslim e-mail and is proud to take credit for it:
Andy Martin Says:
February 1st, 2008 eThank you for crediting me for telling the truth about Barack Obama.At least I don’t have Tony Rezko in my past.
Teh Awesome if there ever is teh awesome.
Here’s the extended background:
One challenger, Martin, has been a frequent candidate in Illinois and Florida in the last three decades. His last appearance on the state’s Republican primary ballot was two years ago, when he received 6,095 votes in finishing last in a five-way race in which more than 729,000 ballots were cast.
In 1973, the Illinois Supreme Court refused to allow Martin admission to the bar, saying he lacked the fitness to be an attorney.
Federal courts have repeatedly sanctioned him for what judges said is his filing of hundreds of largely meritless legal actions.
In early January, a Cook County judge tossed a lawsuit Martin filed against the Tribune alleging the newspaper portrayed him in a false light, contending that his name was not surveyed in a poll of the GOP primary candidates for governor that showed he had less than 1 percent support.
Judge Stuart Palmer ruled Martin’s allegations about the poll appeared to be “simply wrong” in that Martin’s name was included in the survey.
Palmer also rejected the lawsuit, in part, because he said Martin had failed to adhere to a federal court injunction preventing him from initiating lawsuits in state courts without filing a document reciting his litigation history.
In his past, Martin also has expressed anti-Semitic views. When he ran for Congress in Connecticut in 1986, the name of his congressional campaign committee included the phrase “to exterminate Jew power in America,” Federal Election Commission records show.
In a 1983 personal bankruptcy case, he referred to a federal bankruptcy judge as a “crooked, slimy Jew, who has a history of lying and thieving common to members of his race.” In a related court filing in the case, he also expressed sympathy to the perpetrators of the Holocaust.
Sean Hannity ever says something about someone being antisemitic again–he needs to be laughed at harder than usual. Your Fox News Sources at work.
Andy Martin is the guy who reads Mack Bolan novels and thinks he’s Bolan. In reality, he’s a sad little man who desperately craves attention. And Sean Hannity feeds him.
