Meet Matt Sanchez: G.O.P. darling, former gay porn star
LOG JAMMIN' REPUBLICAN Matt Sanchez with Ann Coulter
Last month, Matt Sanchez was a special guest at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C., where Republican presidential candidates made speeches and Ann Coulter famously called John Edwards a "faggot." Sanchez, a 36-year-old corporal in the Marine Corps reserves and student at Columbia University, was being celebrated for his "heroic" efforts in demonizing the campus anti-war movement by exposing Columbia, its students and administration—and by extension, academia at large—as anti-military. Of course, shortly after being championed by such conservative culture warriors as Michelle Malkin, Bill O'Reilly, and Sean Hannity, it was discovered that Mr. Sanchez, aka Rod Majors, had appeared in a number of gay porn films and had worked as a male escort. Can somebody say Jeff Gannon?
Radar caught up with the one-time Fox News darling and star of Touched by an Anal, for a quick Q&A on how one reconciles conservative values with a past in gay porn.
"They are saying, 'You're horrible
because you suck cock.' [The left wing] is trying to discredit me
because of these sexual acts"RADAR: Now, you were just
your everyday run-of-the-mill marine/student at Columbia University,
going from class to class minding your own business. And then, after
identifying yourself as a member of the military at a campus event, the
liberals are beating you up.
You then became a right-wing cause celeb.
DIRTY SANCHEZ Matt in his Blue period
This is something you will hear a lot of on your side of the fence, you who have maligned me, when all I did was write an article about my experience and went on television to talk about it. I went on Fox News. It's curious that only Fox News was interested—CNN could have reported it, MSNBC could have reported it. I was on O'Reilly and Hannity & Colmes.
So you do these series of shows and then the CPAC folks decide to give you an award.
You were also in a film called Touched by an Anal.

You know, this interview actually could have been insightful and respectful while still effectively driving home the point that the man is a hypocrite.

Why in the world should this interview have been respectful?" The guy's a twisted scumbag who deserves nothing but contempt.

Let the guy have his day in the sun. Honestly, how many of you queens are ever truthful about your age or the number of men you have slept with or the diseases you carry. Keep the drama for TV.

Hey bal1254 -- go fuck yourself! Sanchez is a right-wing Republican who made gay porno movies and now denies he was ever gay and supports the vile, homophobic Bush regime. He's a hypocrite and a total scumbag. You're obviously a homophobic scumbag yourself. And one with a "disease" -- terminal stupidity.
