Martin v Wikipedia

(NEW YORK)(December 17, 2009) Republican U. S. Senate candidate and insurgent “Internet Powerhouse” Andy Martin will hold a New York news conference Thursday, December 17th to announce that he has sued the “protosocialist” Wikipedia/Wikimedia operation for using tax-exempt resources to run a hate campaign against him at the behest of Wikimedia’s Barack Obama supporters.

Andy Martin, long known for a pattern of vexatious law suits, appears to be at it again, according to a self-published article at PR-Inside.com.

Martin is best known here for his unsuccessful lawsuit in Hawaii, Martin v. Lingle that attempted to force the Republican Governor of Hawaii to release a copy of Obama’s hospital birth certificate. Martin is running for Senate again in 2010.

A follow-up press release said: Martin plans to link Obama’s mysterious trip to Pakistan as a college student to Obama’s latest policy changes on Afghanistan/Pakistan.

    Those of us in Illinois have the immense pleasure of once again having this nut-ball running for U.S. Senator–third time since 2002 with a run for Governor in there too!!
    I’m starting a pool for everybody interested in where he is going to end up vote wise in the Feb 2nd primary. I’m putting down .5% for my pick.

    Mark Kirk, currently Rep. in IL-10, is running. He’s been in Congress for about 8 years. I find it hard to believe that the GOP primary would pick a nobody wacko over an experienced Congressman, but what do I know.

    Doc-You ought to sue Martin for appropriating your title. Everyone knows that you are the real “Internet Powerhouse”.

    Looking at the Republican side, it appears Kirk is polling far above others for now, but he is not liked by conservatives (he is more a moderate). Given the Illinois GOP’s tendency toward in fighting lately, it is hard to see where this will end up. Maybe Keyes will come back to try again.

    Martin is apparently polling about 1% for the primary.

    It looks as if most of the stronger politicians are looking toward the Governor’s race. I am not sure why. In Illinois, our Governors make the license plates.

    Ah, internet powerhouse. Also, bigot:

    “In an…interview with CNN, Martin…asserted that Obama’s real father is not Barack Obama Sr., but…Frank Marshall Davis, an African American journalist of the 1950s.

    His 1996 run for the Florida State Senate came undone when it was revealed that he had named his campaign committee for his 1986 congressional run “The Anthony R. Martin-Trigona Congressional Campaign to Exterminate Jew Power in America.”

    He was convicted of criminal mischief and sentenced to a year in jail…However, he was mistakenly let out of jail after only a month. Martin never returned, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. The warrant was still outstanding at least as of the time of Martin’s 2008 Senate run.

    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.” When later pressed in an interview about his remarks, Martin claimed that the anti-Semitic comments were inserted into his court papers by malicious judges.”

    This brings to mind the old saying about truth being an absolute defense.

    As far as I can tell, Martin still hasn’t filed any lawsuit. As readers may recall, because of his history of frequent and vexatious litigation, Martin must receive permission from the federal courts before he can file any federal lawsuit.

    In contrast, the Rev. Kamal K. K. Roy has filed three lawsuits against the Wikipedia (in 2007 and 2008).
