New Hampshire First District congressional candidate Andy Martin holds a Manchester news conference today, Monday, to promise that if he wins the primary, his first priority will be party unity. “I will offer Eddie Edwards ad Andy Sanborn continuing roles as co-chairmen of my campaign,” Martin promises. “The incompetent party leadership pursued a policy of self-destruction and split the party in the process. The leadership is incapable of practicing what it preaches. I will make a real gesture, and offer Edwards and Sanborn roles in my fall campaign. I will start the healing process on September 12th. Neither of my opponents can unite the party right now. I can. I am the only candidate that can win in November.”

(Manchester, NH)(September 10, 2018) — Republican congressional candidate Andy Martin holds a news conference today, Monday, to promise that if he wins the primary, he will offer his opponents Eddie Edwards and Andy Sanborn roles as co-chairmen in his campaign.

“On the eve of the primary, the party is split. With all due respect, I am the only congressional candidate that can unite the warring factions on the ‘day after.’ I actually have sympathy for Edwards and Sanborn. They are completely inexperienced candidates at the national level, where campaigns take on a high-pressure, high-voltage environment. By excluding me from full participation in the primary campaign, the party leadership ensured that the other two candidates would declare war on each other. Months ago I predicted what would happen, and it happened.

“My campaign has been premised on a promise to go to Washington and act as a peacemaker. No, I am not going to compromise my principles. But yes, I will act with civility towards those who disagree with me. The healing process has to begin here, now, or the prospects of a Republican going to congress are nil. A party divided against itself cannot win.

“The Edwards ‘camp’ and the Sanborn ‘camp’ will not come together on the ‘day after.’ That is my practical view of the situation. The may attend a ‘unity breakfast’ but that’s the extent of their ‘unity.’

“On the eve of the primary I have said what I am going to say about each of them. There are no attacks today.

“I sincerely do not believe Mr. Sanborn is remotely electable. I could have helped him win; the way forward was obvious. But he chose to adopt a confrontational campaign style and it has doomed his efforts in November. He is obviously tied too closely to Chairman Wayne McDonald, who I call the Joker, and other party leaders.

“Likewise, I would have advised Mr. Edwards to approach his opponent from a slightly different angle. Edwards’ advisers chose their own approach. I do not believe Sanborn voters will be willing to embrace Edwards.

“None of this had to happen. The candidates ourselves have shown we can campaign together with honest differences of opinion. It was the incompetent party leaders, led by the ever-useless McDonald-the-Joker, who insisted that the three campaigns go to war against each other.

“If you have not yet seen the Union Leader/WMUR televised debate, here is a link:

“I believe a fair-minded assessment of my performance is that I am the only candidate who is in ‘sync’ with First District voters. The district voted Republican last time on the strength of Donald Trump’s coattails. This November the GOP candidate will not have a tailwind. He will have a headwind to overcome. This is an evenly-divided district. My campaign of reconciliation and civility is the only way forward.

“I will have a closing message this evening in which I explain why I feel so strongly about my approach. Some have misinterpreted my approach as someone wanting to go ‘half-way’ with Democrats. That is not the case. But I want to go all the way with civility and decorum. The Democratic program of hatred and hostility towards President Trump is undermining America without offering that party any measurable benefit. The misbehavior at the hearings involving Judge Kavanaugh is a disgrace. Anarchy is not ‘free speech.’ Anarchy is antithetical to free speech.

“I worked on Capitol Hill when people actually spoke to each other, and laughed with each other, and teased each other over their policy differences. Republicans were still Republicans and Democrats were still Democrats, but civility made us a stronger nation. We had one united foreign policy, not a foreign policy for every senator who thought he should be president.

“I will also counsel our president, who can get a little frisky with his smart phone, to adopt my approach. As the only candidate who met Donald Trump forty (40!) years ago, I am someone the president will pay serious attention to. Neither Sanborn nor Edwards will have the ear of the president. I will.

“Trump needs me on Capitol Hill.

“New Hampshire Republicans need to nominate someone who can win, not someone who has been telling them what they want to hear at party functions. Truth-telling and tough love is the only way forward to victory.

“I can win. I will serve New Hampshire citizens with honor and respect, qualities we have too little of today in Washington,” Martin states.

GOP congressional candidate Andy Martin’s campaign surges across New Hampshire’s First District Saturday

GOP congressional candidate Andy Martin takes his surging campaign to a Strafford County Republican meeting, a Seacoast Women’s Chili Fest an the Hillsborough County annual dinner, with stops in Hampton and pending stops at St Mary’s Coptic Church in Nashua for the Egyptian Food Festival. “Thursday night Republican voters got to see me lined up with Edwards and Sanborn,” Martin says. “I sincerely believe Andy Sanborn still does not realize how wrong his behavior was over an extended period of years. Eddie Edwards is trying to campaign while concealing legal files that reflect on his racial profiteering at the expense of New Hampshire taxpayers. These are the ‘brightest and the best’ Republicans can put up to run against a Democrat? I am the only candidate with the national experience and national platform to defeat the Democrat. Sunday I will prove that when I give one of the Democrats a noogie she won’t soon forget. My biggest challenge and problem: dealing with the total incompetence of reporters such as Lauren Chooljian and Adam Sexton, who ask questions based on false facts and do not bother to study the record of my successes during this campaign.” If I get a fair shake, I go to Congress to ‘Make New Hampshire Proud.’”

Meet and Greet Andy Martin in Dover, Hampton, Kingston and Bedford as he capitalizes on his strong televised debate performance to surge across the First Congressional District on Saturday

Some media are “shocked” that Martin can perform on TV; Lauren Chooljian, a totally incompetent reporter for public radio, says Martin did a great job on Thursday and that surprised her (she surprises easily)

Andy Martin traverses his congressional district with a simple message: I am the only candidate that can win in November

Sunday Martin will issue a “bombshell” report on Maura Sullivan, answering the question “Why didn’t Maura vote in 2016?”

(Manchester, NH)(September 8, 2018) — Republican congressional candidate Andy Martin will surge across the First District Saturday with a simple message: he is the only GOP candidate who can win in November.

Sunday Martin will drop a political “bomb” in the Democratic congressional primary.

Martin is well known nationally as one of the best conservative operatives in the Republican Party. After the implosion of John McCain’s presidential campaign in September, 2008 Martin rallied conservatives and independents to stave off a “blowout” by Barack Obama that would have devastated the Republican Party in congress. “How many votes did we cost Obama?” Martin asks. “Millions of votes. Obama has never forgiven me for making his life miserable over the past fourteen years. And I’m still making his life miserable, with more to come.

“In fact, at the WMUR debate Thursday night, you saw that the continuing fascination in the media with my anti-Obama work a decade ago. I was asked an erroneous question by Adam Sexton, who had not done his homework. What was Sexton obsessed with? My work opposing Barack Obama. https://www.wmur.com/article/granite-state-debate-martin-answers-question-about-birther-movement/23015892

In reality, I still battle Obama, and Obama still battles with me, as I will explain further on Sunday.

“Lauren Chooljian, a totally incompetent reporter — who had no idea how my campaign had impacted the congressional race and devastated my opponents — claimed she was surprised I performed well on Thursday. Chooljian was asked on NHPR, ‘Now before I let you go what would you say was the most surprising thing about this [televised] debate?’

Chooljian responded, ‘Well, so Andy Martin performed way better than I think most people expected…And it turns out Rick, he actually performed way beyond expectations. He gave clear answers…So I’m curious to see if he picks up votes because of this but, yeah, that was that was definitely surprise.(sic)’

“Memo to Ms. Chooljian: if you knew anything about me, and my radio and television experience, you would find it is far more extensive than yours, which has been at lowly-rated ‘public’ stations. The only ‘surprise’ is your total lack of professional competence to comment on a campaign where you are completely unfamiliar with the impact I had had on my opponents through the skillful use of the Right to Know law. Of course, your incompetence is symptomatic of what passes for ‘journalism’ in New Hampshire.

“With incompetent reporters delivering the news, who are surprised that someone such as myself who is a television professional ‘did well,’ is it any wonder that voters are disgusted with local media? I have been a radio and TV professional for decades, and it shows. My campaign manager and I literally have world class experience. We are dealing with a New Hampshire media environment that is lazy, ignorant and incompetent, all in all fourth rate.

“Despite my national credentials and record of strong performances I have also been treated badly by local party leaders whose vision doesn’t extend beyond their own bias. What is it they say about a ‘prophet is not without honor, …?’ I have delivered a world class primary campaign that changed the face of New Hampshire politics and my team is very proud of our effort.

“And, at the ‘end of the tunnel,’ here is the reality: I am the only candidate who can win in November. Even Ms. Chooljian now believes I can run a strong campaign.

“Ask yourself, is this district going to elect a sexual harasser who refuses to admit he was wrong, lies about his misconduct and admits he is too conservative for the district? The answer is obvious. Our district is too sophisticated to vote for such an ogre in November.

“Will the district support someone who used false claims of racial discrimination to loot New Hampshire taxpayers, and who refuses to authorize release of the secret legal complaints he filed against the state? No way. The legal claims will be exposed before the election, and anyone who is relying on secret files to conceal his weaknesses is a dead duck.

“No one is perfect, and I have controversies in my past. Who doesn’t? But my past is out in the open. There are no secrets or surprises to expect. And as I showed Adam Sexton Thursday night, if you lie about my record I will land on you like a ton of bricks. (Sexton interviewed my opponents, but never interviewed me before the debate, so he deserved what he got.)

“The New York Times investigated me a decade ago. They could find nothing even remotely current to attack me with. The Times had to go back twenty-five and thirty years to scrape up dirt. The Times had to go back decades for dirt because there is nothing in my recent past that can be attacked, unlike Edwards and Sanborn. The Times’ use of stale claims to attack me in 2008 boomeranged. I ended up gaining even more strength in the ‘War Against Obama’ which I was leading in 2008. And as Sexton and other media showed this week, my work exposing Obama still fascinates and obsesses the media. Deep down, they know I am a powerful, heavy hitter that could demolish the Democratic candidate in November.

“The media showed Thursday they are still obsessed with my credentials and experience, because I have been a player at the national level, not in the New Hampshire Senate or as ‘police chief’ in a town of 800 people.

“So consider all one. Between my two opponents who are clearly out of their depth and ‘dead on arrival,’ and my campaign which is infused with national energy and national experience, who has the best chance of winning the congressional seat back? Me or the others?” Martin says. “I don’t have to import people from Texas to endorse my candidacy.

“Who are the Democrats afraid of running against after watching the debate Thursday night? Me. They can topple Sanborn and Edwards with no trouble. They do not want to run against me.

“Ironically, because the Clown Man, ‘Joker’ Wayne McDonald, has tried to sabotage my candidacy, I can run as a ‘clean’ Republican free of any obligations to the incompetent party leaders that have currently delivered four congressional seats to the Democrats. I will represent the people of New Hampshire, not the party leaders.

“Republican Party primary voters can’t afford to nominate my opponents. The baggage they bring to the campaign is too heavy. I am the only candidate that can wage war against the D’s and win back the seat in November.”

Voters are welcome to visit Martin along the way Saturday (Strafford County Republican meeting, Seacoast Women chili Fest, Hillsborough County dinner). Martin will be happy to come out of the events to mingle with voters. The Hampton stop is still being finalized. Martin will try to stop at the Egyptian Food Festival in Nashua to show solidarity with embattled Coptic Christians in Egypt. Call for details. (Martin has contacted St. Mary and Archangel Church to see if he can visit there.)

“My promise has been to ‘Make new Hampshire Proud.’ I delivered Thursday night. I will deliver in November if voters give me the chance,’ Martin says.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

This letter is one of New Hampshire First District congressional candidate Andy Martin’s continuing reports to the citizens of his district

Martin explains how his “Right to Know law” agreements with the Attorney General have devastated the campaign of his primary opponent Andy Sanborn

(MANCHESTER, NH)(August 28, 2018)

Dear New Hampshire Citizen:

This is my twelfth letter to you from the congressional campaign trial. Honestly, I didn’t think we would make political history in this campaign, but we have. After the way I have campaigned, and after what I have achieved, New Hampshire politics will never be the same. And we are still making history. We’re not finished. “There are miles to go,” as Robert Frost stated.

Ask yourself: what kind of a congressman would you like? Obviously, he would be a person responsive to the people of his district. Then you would want someone tough enough to survive in Washington, someone who isn’t a quitter. Finally, you would want a dogged investigator; because both Republicans and Democrats agree there is a lot to investigate in Washington.

I’d like to add two more qualities: you would want someone to be honest with you, someone you could be proud of. Most campaigns are focused on fear, fear of the “base,” fear of appearing to be less extreme than your opponent.

So how have I matched up with your expectations?

You wanted an investigator; you got one. I negotiated agreements with the Attorney General for the release of “Right to Know law” (“RTK”) information concerning two of my opponents, Andy Sanborn and Eddie Edwards. (More of Edwards in a subsequent letter.)

Today Sanborn’s campaign is smoldering. He should have taken my advice and stepped down in June. Monday night the Attorney General released yet another installment of RTK materials and they were disturbing to say the least. The by now infamous “boom boom room” at Sanborn’s saloon was confirmed by another witness, with even more weird information.

The witness testified that Sanborn apparently invited the intern who started the state house scandal to Sanborn’s saloon, after closing hours, to a basement room where Sanborn was cooking somewhere in the vicinity. I’ve never heard stuff like this. But the “Boom Boom Room” appears to be real. Sanborn is reported to have asked the intern leading questions, which suggests some sort of recording capability in the “room.”

The testimony about Sanborn’s boorishness and crassness is endless.

Can you believe – I am sure Sanborn doesn’t — that through my efforts we have secured the release of over 1,000 pages of testimony concerning the Sanborn scandal? Yes, over 1000 pages.

Now, either the people at the Attorney General’s office are all incompetent, and they wasted time and money assembling a record, or else there was something there to investigate. Let me explain a little bit more to you. When the TV lights are turned off, prosecutors are pretty conservative people. They do not like to bring weak criminal cases. And, no, Sanborn was not criminally charged. But in deciding whether to pursue a criminal case, the prosecutors assembled thousands of pages of testimony and evidence. I have only obtained a fraction of it, and I am still asking for more. Not being criminally charged is not the standard for electing a congressman.

So check off the first requirement for your congressman. You want a dogged investigator, you have one in me. My results speak for themselves, with more to come (big day tomorrow).

Knowing Sanborn was dead in the water if the truth came out, the Republican Party, from State Chairman “Joker” Wayne McDonald down to his munchkins at the local level, did everything they could to derail my campaign and defeat me. But my campaign gets stronger every day.

You don’t want a quitter? Well, you can see I don’t quit. The Attorney General did not want to release Sanborn’s papers until after the election. I persisted until we negotiated a deal for early release and it has made all the difference. I didn’t quit until I negotiated a good deal for the citizens of new Hampshire.

You want someone who will respond to the needs of your district, and take care of day-to-day business? I will be there for you every day of the year.

Finally, you want someone to be honest with you, someone who will make New Hampshire and you proud.

Politicians by nature are not brave men and women. Everyone talks about ending the partisan bickering, but no one wants to take the first step. You have to be very confident to take charge of the process.

I have made it a hallmark of my campaign – perhaps the only congressional candidate in the nation – promising to go to Washington and stop the backstabbing, the gridlock, the bickering, bad-mouthing and all the other abuses that have paralyzed the congress. I will make you proud because I have the guts and the persistence to pursue my goal.

Let me say one more thing about Andy Sanborn. What I find and found most astounding was that the most controversial incident of the Sanborn scandals, which span years of abuses, involved a gross comment made in front of his wife. Now I played Big Ten football, so I am no stranger to locker rooms. But almost everyone would be reluctant to make a gross remark involving his own wife in front of his wife. No one can decipher the secrets of a marriage. But Sanborn’s attitudes were becoming offensive fifty years ago. Yes, Sanborn is fifty years behind the times in his attitude towards women.

I wish we had the money to put the “Sanborn Papers” on the Internet. They are gross and crude, but they are also revealing about the candidate’s attitude in 2018. I do not hate Andy Sanborn, though I disagree with him. (And I am waiting for my “Mr. Rogers sweater,” because Sanborn keeps calling me a “moderate,” which I am not.) I feel sorry for Sanborn that he took the totally wrong approach to responding to his scandal. Nevertheless, it’s over for him. There is still a lot we do not know about the Sanborn Scandal, but we know enough, some would say too much about the tawdriness of our state legislature.

I met Donald Trump forty (40) years ago. We were neighbors. I think he wants to do a good job. Most of us want him to do a good job. Few people want to do a bad job. But Trump lacks the political experience to leverage his good intentions. I have the depth of experience to help the president accomplish much of his agenda.

The First Congressional District leans “Republican” but it is not a right-wing district. We are not right-wingers in New Hampshire. Yet both of my opponents have flooded the state with right-wing Republicans endorsing their candidacies. In other words, they want to appear extreme in the primary to attract voters, while eventually ensuring their defeat in November.

On the contrary, I know that if I lie to you in the primary, I will pay for it in November. I have chosen to tell you the truth: I’m conservative, but an independent conservative, not a lockstep one. I will take on the toxic partisanship in congress and make a dent, a big dent, in that institution. Rest assured. I am a New Hampshire conservative of the old school. We get things done.

I have more respect for your intelligence than my opponents do. I know you want to win. You want me to campaign on a positive platform, not just bow to a rote right-wing agenda. I will protect Medicare and Social Security. While pursuing a conservative approach, I will ensure that no American is left behind. Our “Safe Stations” approach to helping drug abusers in Manchester is an example. It is based on local firehouses, neighbors helping people. But “Safe Stations” actually helps jumpstart the process of recovery (please see links [1], [2] below]). Conservatism in the service of a humane approach to government.

Over the weekend I told you about a church in Manchester, founded in the depths of the depression by brave souls including my immigrant grandmother. Eighty-two years later the church is flourishing. I use modern equipment, such as computers, email and other conveniences. But my values are old-fashioned, New Hampshire values. I will make you proud to have me as your U. S. Representative. I would never let you down any more than I would let down my parents, grandparents and others.

There is hard work to be done in Washington; I have a strong back to get started.

Respectfully,

Andy Martin

First District congressional candidate Andy Martin explains to Republican and unaffiliated voters why so-called conservatives are panicking at his announced participation in the Granite State Debate

“My primary opponents rely on out-of-state ‘conservatives’ for their support,” Martin says. “Local Republicans by and large are not enthused by their candidacies. The advisers to both of my opponents have lied to their own supporters. Sanborn backers pretend that he only used foul language ‘on one occasion,’ when there is a diary documenting years of Sanborn’s inappropriate behavior.

“Likewise, Eddie Edwards’ replacement at the Liquor Commission stated he inherited a “dysfunctional” agency from Edwards, with poor agency morale (please see link [1] below). So, who’s right? Edwards or his successor? Edwards’ supporters pretend he was a great leader. The Liquor Commission says otherwise; he was barred from reemployment with the state. What does all of this mean? Please allow me to explain.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

This letter is one of New Hampshire First District congressional candidate Andy Martin’s continuing reports to the citizens of his district

Martin exposes the hypocrisy of so-called conservatives that run rigged polls and muzzle free speech, all to nominate a sure loser for congress in the Republican Party

(MANCHESTER, NH)(August 27, 2018)

Dear New Hampshire Citizen:

1. In my last letter to you I explained how the supporters of
my opponents have done everything to derail my campaign. They have failed.

Last week I advised you that I would be part of the Granite State Debate sponsored by WMUR, the Union Leader and the NHIOP next month.

The primary has clearly expanded from a “two-man” race to a three-candidate race. (In a subsequent announcement I will explain why it is really a “one-man” election.)

So, who went after me the day after I was announced as a debate participant? The self-styled right-wing of the Republican Party, in the name of a blog called GraniteGrok. To the best of my knowledge the “Grok” had not mentioned my name in seven (7) years. So why, the day after I was invited to participate in the Granite State Debate, did a Grok writer suddenly develop an interest in my campaign? Obviously, something had agitated the self-proclaimed right-wing Groksters.

2. Skip Murphy, one of the founders of Grok, attacked my “experience” and ridiculed my disclosure of New Hampshire State official records which disclosed an intern had been taken to a basement room in Andy Sanborn’s saloon for a bizarre meeting. Murphy says he doesn’t like “my language.”

You can attack me on many levels. No candidate is perfect and in a lifetime of public service I have made my share of mistakes and attracted my share of detractors. But I don’t believe anyone can seriously argue that I am not the most experienced candidate in either the Republican or the Democratic primary.

I have broad international and foreign policy experience. I have been in and out of Washington and I know how to take command the day I take the oath. So, yes, while you are obviously free to vote for one of my opponents, most people would agree that if you want to send “experience” to Washington, I am the most experienced candidate to help the congress move ahead.

3. So what is really bothering the Groksters? In a nutshell: The First District is not a “Ted Cruz” district. That’s why the Grok feels threatened by my candidacy and campaign. I am actually talking common sense to Republicans and independents in the First Congressional District, not Republicans in Texas or Montana.

They are frightened by the fact I want to win the November election, not just endlessly debate “conservative” issues.

Neither of my two fellow debaters is remotely electable in the First District. Right-wingers love my opponents because they try to outdo each other pandering to conservative voters (the Grok-related “603 Alliance,” which I support, conducted a two-man “poll” and, surprise, one of the two “won,” but my name wasn’t even offered as an option). Unfortunately for my primary opponents, the views they are espousing in the primary will come back to haunt them, and defeat them, in the general election.

It is often said that the First District is a “Republican” District. That’s not really accurate. The district does lean Republican in registration, but the district’s Republican voters are New Hampshire conservatives, not Ted Cruz conservatives. The district “leans” Republican but it will not elect a right-winger. So, when my primary opponents try to “out-conservative” each other, they are declaring that they are incapable of defeating a Democrat in November.

About a month ago, long before I was included in the debate, WMUR asked me for some candidate background (please see link # 2 below). If you look at the “Why are you running for congress section” you will see I am profoundly concerned by the need for someone to stand up during a party primary and promise to begin the difficult task of ending the partisan deadlock and endless bickering in Washington. I am big enough and strong enough and experienced enough to do just that if you send me to Washington.

I really do want to “Make America Great Again” and the only way we can do that is to work with people we disagree with, and work to harness the collective energy of people whose views are across the political spectrum. I am the only candidate in either primary campaigning on a promise to promote reconciliation and a willingness to work with the other party, not just offering lip service to “bipartisanship.” In New Hampshire I have a winning message. My opponents had a bad week again (please see links [3] and [4]); judge for yourself. That’s why I claim we now have a three-man race, and you have a real choice, a New Hampshire conservative choice, for congress.

4. No sooner had I made those remarks than Andy Sanborn pounced and said I was a “moderate.” My response was, “I’m not a moderate on the issues; but, yes, I am all in favor of moderation when it comes to trying to work together with the Democrats.” All of my life I have been a bridge between people holding conflicting viewpoints. People have respected me because my own views are honorably held, but I have always been prepared to appear before groups with whom I disagree and listen to conflicting ideas.

Guess what? I am a conservative. An old-fashioned, New England, New Hampshire conservative of the type that used to dominate New Hampshire politics. Today, when faced with a choice between a cartoon version of Texas conservatism, and a cartoon version of New Hampshire leftism, voters have clearly allowed Democrats to dominate our state in the last two decades.

I actually stand a chance of winning, going to Washington and serving honorably as I represent your interests and the interests of every Granite Stater, and not just follow the ideas of conservative think tanks that are divorced from reality.

In closing, let me say a good word about my detractors. I do read the GraniteGrok; I also peruse CNN and MSNBC. You should too. I want to read contrasting viewpoints. I find a lot to like in the Grok; I get leads and ideas from their columns. They are not bad people. But in my opinion, they would rather be “right” than win an election. (Two years ago, the Grok promoted a “fake candidate” in the Second District; he was exposed as totally unqualified.)

When I take to the debate stage next month, I am debating to win, not debating to debate. For Republican primary voters, the case comes down to one issue: do you want to win with honor in November, or would you prefer to nominate a conservative and endure endless debates about who is the “most conservative” candidate running?

I fully expect that one of these days Andy Sanborn will pull out a “Mr. Rogers” sweater and present it to me. I’ll be proud to accept.

I hope you will pay serious attention to the debate. I will make New Hampshire proud and make you proud. I can and will serve with honor in the congress.

Respectfully,

Andy Martin

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

One of New Hampshire First District congressional candidate Andy Martin’s continuing reports to the citizens of his district

Martin explodes the conspiracy of silence that exists in the New Hampshire Republican Party. Think this email is too “hot?” There are hotter ones in the pipeline. Andy needs your votes to go to congress and turn over the tables of the moneychangers that are shortchanging Americans.

(MANCHESTER, NH)(August 20, 2018)

Dear New Hampshire Citizen:

1. The Joker (Batman) is after me; but I am now after him

It has been a month since I wrote you a special letter from the First Congressional District campaign, and what a month it has been. The Joker (Wayne McDonald) keeps following orders to sabotage the Republican Party and destroy my campaign. All McDonald has accomplished is to destroy the Republican Party and make it into a laughingstock.

I’m not going anywhere. My family has been in New Hampshire for 102 years. But McDonald, The Joker, is on his way to the wastebasket, or worse, maybe even the hoosegow.

How is it that the Democrats manage to handle eleven (11) congressional candidates but The Joker pretends there are only two (2), not including me, running in the First District? That’s why Democrats win and Republicans lose. They bring people in; The Joker tries to keep people out.

2. The dumbest political contributor, Alicia Preston

But that’s not the best piece of news. I have a nominee for dumbest political contributor in New Hampshire to date (this is a fluid category and other dopes-in-waiting may be out there, in fact they almost certainly are, are you reading this Paul Steinhauser?).

Alicia Preston, whom some of you may know, has published the dumbest and most incompetent piece of commentary I have seen recently. Please see link [1] below. Maybe Preston is dumb because The Joker’s antics have deprived her of election information; that, after all is the self-destructive manual McDonald is using to defeat me. (“What if they gave an election and pretended one of the candidates didn’t exist?).

Preston says there are only “two” candidates. Well, there are more than two, at least three including me, who are campaigning fiercely.

Preston was completely ignorant of the fact that my Right to Know (RTK) negotiations with the Attorney General have devastated both the Sanborn and Edwards campaigns. My campaign, not the local fake news media in Manchester, opened a veritable Pandora’s Box into embarrassing factual information involving my two opponents. Not only has my RTK work effectively ended the Sanborn campaign, Preston was blathering in her column without even seeing the latest reporting on Saturday (she has been added to my email list, but she doesn’t appear to check the fake news media either.)

I have to work overtime, without pay, to get my news out quickly because John DiStaso of WMUR steals all of my work and pretends it is his own. I negotiated the “Sanborn papers” release with the AG, but DiStaso continues to lie to his viewers and readers and claim the disclosures coming out are a result of his work. Liar, liar TV station on fire.

Preston is so stupid she wrote a piece for Seacoastonline.com (a future nominee for most fake news media operation in New Hampshire when we sue them) suggesting Sanborn had only made one bad remark. She didn’t even know that there were years of bad conduct by Sanborn. We need a separate file box to catalog all the bad things he did to women (his assistant” was taken away because he sexually harassed her constantly, and so on..[see below])

So, I nominate Alicia Preston for dumbest political writer. Do you have a better suggestion?

3. Now for the good stuff – I suspect it’s gonna get nasty

Several weeks ago I attended an event. A member of the media came up to me with a pretty wild story. The media guy said Andy Sanborn’s bar (The Draft in Concord) had a lower level with rooms where bad things could happen. There were even rumors about Sanborn taping people, in what sounded like his own version of the “Boom Boom Room.” (Please see link [2] below.)

Both my campaign manager and I are seasoned analysts and investigators. My biography (www.AndyMartin.com) lists some of the places I have been. Just because we hear something that sounds crazy, we do not necessarily erase the claim from our memory.

After the event where Sanborn’s “room” was disclosed my manager and I talked about Sanborn’s possible “Boom Boom Room” and the possible existence of tapes Sanborn has made secretly, possibly for blackmail purposes. But we had nothing more to go on, so Sanborn’s Boom Boom Room issue went into the “Work In Progress” file on the computer. No action.

Until Friday, August 18th.

Late Friday, at almost 6:00 P.M., pursuant to our Right to Know agreement, the Attorney General released heavily redacted transcripts from interviews conducted with people involved in the Sanborn Scandal. We don’t know what the AG is covering up but we plan a lawsuit (John DiStaso won’t be able to steal that material because we will ask the court to keep in under wraps except for me.)

So what set off the bells ringing at my campaign War Room?

The transcripts revealed that the intern who was/is at the center of the Sanborn Scandal was invited by Sanborn to go to a “room” in the basement of The Draft, where Sanborn made “uncomfortable” leading remarks. (Yes, this is all there, under oath, in the RTK documents.)

It looks as though Sanborn did have/does have a Boom Boom Room.

The Sanborn Scandal is exploding like a political supernova. And, under my agreement with the AG, there are more documents to come. New Hampshire has seldom seen anything this lurid, and it is all brought to you courtesy of my campaign and campaign staff. We beat the pants off the local fake news media.

Boom!

4. The bottom line

I was featured on the CBS TV network 25 years ago. A decade ago I was at the center of the presidential race, with one of the most controversial interviews of the entire election on Fox News. Please see link [3] below. The New York Times put me on page one as one of the nation’s most dangerous conservative political operatives (wouldn’t you love to have me in Washington?).

I have debated on ABC television in Chicago, but a small town station such as WMUR says I’m not good enough for Manchester. When The Joker and WMUR try to prevent me from appearing in debates, they are showing how low class they are. They are engaging in a conspiracy to rig an election.

So, guess what. I am slow to anger and slow to take action. But I have had enough of New Hampshire’s media losers and crooked politicians starting with The Joker treating me with disrespect. No more Mr. Nice Guy. If WMUR wants to play dirty, I will hit them where it hurts, in their pocketbook. If the Joker wants to harass me, he will pay a greater political price than his demented mind can imagine. The gloves are off.

Republicans nationally have been called “the stupid party.” In New Hampshire, The Joker and his Concord cronies are proving, one more election cycle all over again, they are “the Losers’ Party.” What the Joker is doing to me is backfiring across the entire team of GOP candidates. McDonald may defeat the entire Republican ticket in November, all in an insane plot to destroy my candidacy.

A famous Navy man (no, not Eddie Edwards) once said “I have not yet begin to fight.” Well, in New Hampshire in the First District, the fight is on.

Respectfully,

Andy Martin

Manchester News conference Saturday: New Hampshire First District congressional candidate Andy Martin will disclose the existence of a “sex dossier” involving one of his opponents, Andy Sanborn

New Hampshire First District congressional candidate Andy Martin will hold a Manchester news conference Saturday to disclose the existence of a “sex dossier” in the case of the New Hampshire Attorney General’s investigation of congressional candidate Andy Sanborn. The current location of the sex dossier, which catalogues years of inappropriate sexual and other remarks by Sanborn, is unknown. There is also a “tears tape” with a NH staffer crying under the stress of Sanborn’s corruption and misconduct. Martin, one of a handful of America’s most experienced and relentless investigative reporters and media analysts, has doggedly pursued Sanborn after a criminal investigation into Sanborn’s behavior was closed. “He may not be a criminal,” Martin says. “But Sanborn is clearly unfit for office anywhere in America. Amazingly enough, while Sanborn escapes criminal liability, Wayne McDonald and his coconspirators may be subject to criminal liability for misusing their official positions to discredit me and to destroy my candidacy. It’s a federal offense to harass a candidate for congress.”

Sex dossier exists, whereabouts unknown, in Sanborn investigation

Andy Martin challenges Eddie Edwards to debate, says Sanborn is through as a serious candidate

(Manchester, NH)(August 18, 2018) — Republican congressional candidate Andy Martin will hold a news conference, by appointment only, Saturday to discuss the latest “bombshell” disclosures in the case of the New Hampshire Attorney General’s investigation into State Senator Andy Sanborn.

“At 4:45 P.M. on Friday we got a document dump from the New Hampshire Attorney General (“AG”),” Martin says. “Then we got a call from the AG that they had released raw files by mistake, with a request we delete the raw files. We agreed and we got a second ‘redacted’ document dump about an hour later.

“I suppose that by now most people thought there were no more surprises in the Andy Sanborn sexual harassment case. They were wrong.

“The latest transcripts from witness interviews indicate that the victim of one of the senator’s abuses kept what I call a ‘sex dossier’ of all of Sanborn’s inappropriate remarks for approximately two (2) years. The current location of the sex dossier is unknown. Sanborn’s misbehavior was not a single incident. He was crass and inappropriate throughout his entire senate career. There is apparently a video of a tearful intern, again a new development. Sanborn is a man voters want to send to Washington? No one is that crazy, even in New Hampshire.

“Thursday New Hampshire Republicans held a bogus ‘debate’ from which I was excluded. Wayne McDonald and the people behind him are trying to discredit me to protect Sanborn. This is crooked politics of the worst order, and may involve a new and independent crime. In other words, the latest cover-up by Wayne McDonald and his coconspirators to destroy my campaign may be criminal activity under federal and state law. The cover-up may become worse than the original ‘crime.’

“I asked Sanborn to step down on June 16th. I negotiated a deal with the AG in late June. Both the AG and I have kept our sides of the bargain. We continue to work together pursuant to the state’s Right to Know (“RTK”) law.

“In addition, while I have not seen the missing portions of the witness transcripts that were redacted, I have seen the redactions themselves (whited out areas) and my quick guess is that in one deposition alone ten (10) pages of testimony were removed from public view.

“Because it’s August and because we’re very busy on Saturday, we have scheduled a ‘by appointment only’ news conference. If we are called and told someone wants to do an interview, we will be at City Hall at noon, sort of a ‘flagged down’ train stop. If we do not get a call, we will not stop there.

“Crooked politicians in the Republican Party are trying to silence and discredit me and promote and protect Andy Sanborn.

“While Eddie Edwards and I arrive the same conclusion by different approaches, we both agree Sanborn is both unelectable and that no responsible and respectable party would nominate Sanborn for anything. Ironically, Edwards himself is mentioned in one of the AG interviews, concerning a Derry appearance by both men.

“When I said yesterday that the congressional race was now a two-man contest between myself and Edwards, some may have thought I was delusional or engaging in hyperbole. The latest Right to Know evidence confirms I have been right about Sanborn since June. Only the ‘omerta’ of corrupt Republican Party leaders has kept Sanborn in the race.

“When Edwards feels confident enough of himself, I am anxious to debate him so we can determine who the best man is to represent the First District. Rather than excluding me from debates, it is now time to exclude Sanborn.

“Eddie are you ready?

The latest disclosures abut the Sanborn investigation will shock even the most jaded observers of America’s Peyton Place of politics, crooked New Hampshire.

“I am fighting to represent the voters and good citizens, and to clean up the corruption so Granite Staters can once again have a government they can be proud of. Sanborn must go.

“People are under the mistaken impression that Sanborn’s misbehavior was a one-and-done ‘mistake.’ The witness transcripts reflect years of misconduct and suspicious activity by Sanborn.

“Later this month I hope to have the resources to post the actual transcripts of the Sanborn investigation online, so every Republican primary voter can see what I have seen and decide if I am the best man to speak for them in congress. Unlike most political blather, we have sworn transcripts to accompany our accusations.

“I have national, major market experience in media and investigations. It took someone who had lived ‘outside’ New Hampshire to come home and clean up the ‘inside’ of insider politics that has contaminated Concord. I am very proud of the influence I have had cleaning up politics in this state; in the words of that great Navy man, ‘I’ve just begun to fight.’

“As Joe Louis once said, my opponents ‘can run, but they can’t hide.’ They can conduct fake debates but the fake news media can no longer protect them from investigation and exposure.”

(Manchester, NH)(August 16, 20128) Andy Martin’s lawsuit against The University of New Hampshire Survey Center, St. Anselm College, WMUR, the Union Leader, CRES and other defendants has been filed with the Clerk of the Superior Court.

“I believe elections should be settled on Election Day,” Martin says. “But when powerful interests engage in blatant fraud and corrupt the electoral process, conducting fake ‘debates’ and using fake candidates to undermine my campaign, going to court is a last resort, not a first one.

“Just look at how the Democrats have treated their eleven (11) candidates. With fairness and grace. Slimy Republican leaders are trying to rig our primary to favor two (2) candidates. Whatever happened to democracy? The Democrats win elections because they treat primary candidates with respect, and unify after the primary. Republicans try to fix primaries, and falsely believe the fake news media are their allies. But all of this GOP dirtiness boomerangs and defeats Republicans in November. Wait and see.

“The long-term effects of the defendant’s corruption of New Hampshire’s political process will be substantial. The complaint has been posted on the Internet, as a first step towards warning the public and the American people. We want to alert individuals who might come to New Hampshire to study or participate in our FITN primary.

“The irony is that my opponents and I get along pretty well on the campaign trail. We crack jokes about each other at joint appearances. It is the self-styled GOP leaders and local media that are corrupting the process. Of course all of this unnecessary turmoil ultimately hurts Republican candidates. I wonder if there is a pro Democrat, ‘Manchurian Candidate’ ‘leader’ in the state GOP who is undermining the primary election process.

“We intend to terminate the calamity of corruption that has been inflicted on the good citizens of New Hampshire’s campaigns and elections. Before we are over the defendants will pay a heavy price indeed, both in court and out of court. President Trump and I are both fighters. We are cut from the same cloth when it comes to responding to violations of our rights. The lawsuit is only the first step.”
