Andy Martin: Judge Sets Injunciton Hearing in Illinois Vote Fraud Lawsuit

Press Release

Location: Unknown

A Sangamon County Circuit Judge has set a July 23rd emergency injunction hearing on a vote fraud lawsuit filed by Illinois corruption fighter Andy Martin. Martin's lawsuit seeks to end the practice by Illinois politicians of using "straw men" and corrupt attorneys to file "objections" to candidate petitions while concealing the identity of the person actually orchestrating the objection process and paying the legal bills. Martin will be filing an amended complaint Monday adding Du Page County sex fiend Brien Sheahan as a defendant. "I am fighting for the people of Illinois," Martin says. "I am fighting for the right to run for office without sleazy lawyers filing fraudulent claims on behalf of straw men who represent hidden political interests. I will be in court on July 23rd to fight for clean politics in Illinois. Illinois is ready for reform." The State Board of Elections held some sort of secret hearing on Martin's candidacy. Martin is also challenging the SBE's lack of notice and improper procedures as applied to federal candidates. Martin is adding SBE official Philip Krasny to the suit as a defendant as a result of Krasny's secret hearing.
