ANDY MARTIN, in brief
1. Corruption Fighter
Martin has been a leading corruption
fighter in Illinois spanning five
decades (1960's-2000's). Andy exposed
corruption in the local courts while
still a student at the University of
Illinois College of Law. In 1968 Andy
engaged in a legendary confrontation
with Chicago Mayor Richard Daley,
demanding that Democrats dump Secretary
of State Paul Powell because Powell was
a crook. Shortly thereafter, Powell died
leaving millions of dollars stuffed in
In 1969 Andy Martin joined efforts to
investigate and expose two corrupt
judges on the Illinois Supreme Court.
The judges were forced to resign after
taking bank stock bribes. The Court
retaliated against Andy by investigating
Throughout the 1970's Martin waged war
against judicial corruption in Illinois'
federal and state courts. His efforts
set the foundations for Operation
Greylord, which led to the conviction of
over 80 court personnel. The United
States Court of Appeals in Chicago once
said "The stories about Martin's clashes
with the appellate and district court
judges in this circuit are legion…he
might not win a popularity contest in
this circuit." Any surprise there?
Andy also waged war against political
corruption over the same decades. At a
time when a new generation of Daley
Family pirates is now pillaging Chicago,
Illinois needs strong new leadership to
fight corruption. Andy Martin will wage
war against crooked politicians and
continue his fight for integrity in
Washington. Andy still doesn't want to
win a "popularity contest." He wants to
win the war against corruption.
Andy has entered the race for the 2010
Republican nomination for U. S. Senator.
Send him your thoughts. Offer him your
support. Once again, Illinois calls Andy
Martin to be a field general in the
endless war against political corruption
in our state and in Washington.
