Original Obama Birther Running for Senate in 2010

Andy Martin, the Chicago “Internet powerhouse” (his own words!) who started the unfounded rumor that Barack Obama was a secret Muslim and later pushed the unfounded rumor that he wasn’t born in America, has launched his umpteenth campaign. He’s running for Obama’s old U.S. Senate seat in 2010. From Martin’s Website:

Andy Martin is a candidate for U. S. Senator in 2010. He wants to maintain the Republican Party as a conservative party but modernize its policy stands and open the party to full participation by every American. Andy favors inclusive social policies and is a strong supporter of the right to privacy. Andy will represent the public interest, not the special interests, in Washington.

On the same page, Martin hints at his years of fruitless attacks on the president, arguing that his self-published “book and ongoing disclosures probably cost Obama millions of votes and held down his electoral victory.”

“In 1973 the Illinois Supreme Court refused to grant him a license to practice law in the state. It cited several instances of troubling conduct on Martin's part, including an attempt to have a parking violation thrown out because it had been “entered by an insane judge” and his description of an attorney as “shaking and tottering and drooling like an idiot.”[9] Martin had been described by state psychiatrists as having a “moderately severe character defect manifested by well-documented ideation with a paranoid flavor and a grandiose character”

“His 1996 run for the Florida State Senate came unraveled when it was revealed that he'd named his campaign committee for his 1986 congressional run “The Anthony R. Martin-Trigona Congressional Campaign to Exterminate Jew Power in America.” The revelation led the state Republican Party to renounce him. Just before the election, he assaulted two cameramen from WPTV, the NBC affiliate in West Palm Beach. He was convicted of criminal mischief and sentenced to a year in jail. He was freed pending appeal, but made personal attacks on the judge while on the way out of the courtroom.”

“Martin has been labeled a vexatious litigant by numerous federal and state courts. As early as 1982, Edward Weinfeld, a federal judge for the Southern District of New York, observed that he had a tendency to file “a substantial number of lawsuits of a vexatious, frivolous and scandalous nature.”[9]

Many of these filings were anti-Semitic in nature. 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.”[3] 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.”[3] He went on to say that “Jew survivors are operating as a wolf pack to steal my property.” [13] 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.[3]“

Andy isn't going to be elected as dog catcher.
