InfoAlso known as Anthony R. Martin-Trigona.

Andy Martin has been a leading corruption fighter in Illinois spanning five decades (1960's-2000's).

Andy exposed corruption in the local courts while still a student at the University of Illinois College of Law. In 1968 Andy engaged in a legendary confrontation with Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, demanding that Democrats dump Secretary of State Paul Powell because Powell was a crook. Shortly thereafter, Powell died leaving millions of dollars stuffed in shoe boxes.

In 1969 Andy Martin joined efforts to investigate and expose two corrupt judges on the Illinois Supreme Court. The judges were forced to resign after taking bank stock bribes. The Court retaliated against Andy by investigating him!

Throughout the 1970's Martin waged war against judicial corruption in Illinois' federal and state courts. His efforts set the foundations for Operation Greylord, which led to the conviction of over 80 court personnel. The United States Court of Appeals in Chicago once said "The stories about Martin's clashes with the appellate and district court judges in this circuit are legion…he might not win a popularity contest in this circuit." Any surprise there?

Andy also waged war against political corruption over the same decades. At a time when a new generation of Daley Family pirates is now pillaging Chicago, Illinois needs strong new leadership to fight corruption. Andy Martin will wage war against crooked politicians and continue his fight for integrity in Springfield. Andy still doesn't want to win a "popularity contest." He wants to win the war against corruption.

Andy is exploring a race for the 2006 Republican nomination for Governor. Send him your thoughts. Offer him your support. Once again, Illinois calls Andy Martin to be a field general in the endless war against political corruption in our state.
