"For the first time in my life I have sympathy for the Philistines in the Bible. We both were assailed by the jawbone of an ass."

The headline is a quote- thirty years old- by an attorney.  He was responding to a charge of corruption by Andy Martin- AKA Andrew Martin Trigona.  Andy Martin, in case you did not know, is the lowest of low in politics.  He has run in several elections in Florida and Illinois as a Democrat and a Republican.

He has never one an election and has been thrown off the ballot in some and disavowed by the Republican Party.  His last race, for the Illinois US Senate seat, was nothing more than a vicious smear campaign against his primary opponents.  Included were ads accusing one of being a child molester.

Now, his main occupation seems to be smearing the Illinois Republican Party.  He claims to be every kind of political hero under the sun, while defaming, debasing, and dehumanizing everyone else.  Now, in politics everything is fair, but, you should not have your own dirty laundry if you are smearing others.

Andy Martin’s Florida campaign fund was called “The Anthony R. Martin-Trigona Congressional Campaign to Exterminate Jew Power in America.”  Martin has also been known to make other extreme Anti-Semetic comments, some in open court and some in motions filed in court. 

In his motion for the 1983 bankruptcy case, he called the judge “a crooked, slimy Jew who has a history of lying and thieving common to members of his race.” In another motion that year, Martin stated, “I am able to understand how the Holocaust took place, and with every passing day feel less and less sorry that it did.”  He went on to say that “Jew survivors are operating as a wolf pack to steal my property.” 

Now Martin is unleashing his vile attacks on Illinois GOP Chairman Pat Brady; referring to him as a sleazy lawyer and a slime ball..  Most people view Martin as a vicious crank or a cruel and mentally unstable person.  But, in every walk of life, there is a fringe element.  People who seek out and cling to people like Andy Martin.  This is the problem.  Worse, no one steps in to use his own tactics against him to disavow him.  Conventional wisdom being, if you ignore him he will go away.  Andy Martin blatantly defies conventional wisdom, or any other wisdom.

From all appearances, Andy Martin is a crank, a charlatan, and a fraud.  His only goal in life is to destroy people and to puff up his specious resume and list of alleged accomplishments.  This man is the lowest of the low.  He gives child molesters a good name.  Andy Martin has no human qualities.  He has no shame, no decency, no integrity, no ethics, and no morals.  The man is just a pathological hater.  I do not know what kind of pathic he is- psyco or socio, but there has to be some  definition for his type of behavior.  There probably is no treatment.

It is time for some one in the party to step in and not only disavow him, but strongly disavow him.  He claims he is now aligned with the Tea Party.  One could only hope this is just Martin’s typical braggadocio.  If it is even remotely true, the Tea Party should toss him out.

Since I do not want to give any credence to this morally vacant and intellectually corrupt individual, I have purposely left out the link to his site.  Look it up yourself.
