FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Republican Presidential Candidate Andy Martin holds a LaGuardia Airport news conference today, Saturday, June 4th as he continues to attack Rep. Anthony Weiner
Martin says Weiner is making a laughingstock of the House of Representatives
Martin says it is time for the House of Representatives to establish standards of conduct for House members
Martin says Weiner has yet to explain his connection with pornstar Ginger Lee
Andy Martin is one of the Republican Party’s veteran cyberwarriors and waged a relentless Internet campaign against President Barack Obama; Martin is highly skeptical of Weiner’s “hacking” claims
Martin is a former adjunct professor of law at City University of New York; he has over thirty years of experience investigating and exposing congressional imbroglios going back to the Wayne Hayes sex scandal and even earlier House embarrassments.
“Sex scandals seem to be increasing in the Internet Age,” Martin says. “Speaker John Boehner should grab the initiative and open a formal impeachment investigation against Representative Anthony Weiner. There is an overwhelming constitutional basis to do so.
“First, we need to know if Weiner was in fact using public computers, i. e.
Second, Weiner has clearly violated House Rules that mandate reporting of security braches to House Authorities. Weiner has consistently and repeatedly said there was a security breach but then refused to take any action in response to his own allegations. The failure to obey and abide by House rules that mandate the reporting of security breaches for investigation by House staff is a sufficient basis to open an impeachment investigation.
“Third, Weiner appears to be the new ‘Balloon Boy’ of the House. He appears to be alleging something that he knows to be false, namely a ‘hacking,’ in order to forestall a criminal investigation by the House and FBI. If there really was a criminal hacking incident—remember that the hacker who hacked into Sarah Palin’s email system in 2008 went to jail—then Weiner is covering up criminal activity to conceal his own unethical and possibly criminal acts. Should ‘misprison of felony’ rear its unseemly head again?
“Fourth, Weiner may be using Clintonesque language to conceal his sexual activity. He says he didn’t ‘send’ the underpants picture to the college student. I believe that. He intended to ‘send’ the picture to pornstar Ginger Lee, not the student. It all depends on what your definition of ‘send’ is.
“I could go on, but you get the picture. The House of Representatives is given broad, independent constitutional authority to supervise the ethical, financial and technical conduct of its members, particularly where U. S. Government computers are being sued for private sexual purposes. To open an impeachment investigation does not necessarily mandate that Weiner actually be impeached. In its initial phases, an impeachment investigation serves the function of a grand jury, which investigates potential questionable activity. It is not until the House actually indicts, by adopting articles of impeachment, that Weiner goes on trial in the senate.
“Coincidently, Weiner’s abuse of authority is taking place simultaneously with the indictment of former Senator John Edwards for possible misuse of quasi-public campaign funds for personal reasons. There has been a great deal of media controversy over whether what Edwards did is a ‘crime.’ But the House does not have to find criminal activity to open an impeachment investigation. It merely needs to open an investigation to make an independent determination of the facts and to ascertain whether Weiner is breaking House rules and procedures by using a private law firm to cover up his public misconduct. The initial ‘probable cause’ to open an investigation is overwhelming. That is what I am asking Speaker Boehner to do.
“Republicans should take the lead in raising ethical standards in
