I couldn't believe in 2010 a candidate would think he could win on these attack ads: Andy Martin: U.S. Senate Candidate, Homophobic Jackass - Chicagoist I heard two ads: (1) Kirk is a closet fag. Really it was nearly that crude. (2) Kirk is a pediphile! Actual words. I was shocked to say the least. I thought it was a joke until I say the stories on this. Although I was very upset by Kirk voting in favor of cap and trade, I will 1000% more motivated to vote for him over Andy.
