More dirt on Matt Sanchez, the ex-porn star/marine who claims anti-war protests spit at him

Marines investigate Matt Sanchez

Sanchez investigation wraps up today

By John Hoellwarth - Staff writer
Posted : Sunday Apr 1, 2007 8:22:25 EDT

The Corps on Friday was slated to wrap up an investigation into allegations that a corporal in the Individual Ready Reserve who appeared in gay porn films before enlisting solicited more than $12,000 from private organizations by asking them to fund a deployment to Iraq he never made, according to e-mails from the investigating officer forwarded to Marine Corps Times.

Reserve Col. Charles Jones, a staff judge advocate called to Marine Corps Mobilization Command in Kansas City, Mo., on temporary orders that expire Saturday, informed Reserve Cpl. Matt Sanchez of the allegations against him in a March 22 e-mail that advised Sanchez of his rights


<<<<snip>>>>

Jones wrote that Sanchezs participation in porn films was part of the investigation, but that two of the three allegations against him involved lying to various people, including but not limited to, representatives of the New York City United War Veterans Council and U-Haul Corporation about deploying to Iraq at the commandants request.

Specifically, you wrongfully solicited funds to support your purported deployment to Iraq by coordinating a $300 payment from the UWVC and $12,000 from U-Haul, Jones wrote.

You know, if I ever saw Matt Sanchez I'd spit at him. Not because he served in the war but because he's a fucking liar who scammed people for profit by using his military service. Figures he's a republican

Why anyone takes these clowns seriously is beyond me.

4. Yep!
You know, I could care less the guy was 'Rod Major' gay porn-star. But when you scam people by using your military service you are fucking pond scum.

Probably why he gets along so well with Coulter & Hannity

15. Birds of a feather....
Paid for sex or paid for political punditry, what's the difference.

Besides, Jeff Gannon is no longer available.

26. problem is, another 30% are moderate, and still hear this kind of shit
hell, my finacee's uncle is moderate/liberal, former military, pro-gay marriage, voted for Kerry, voted for a Dem for US house, etc etc, but is upset with Kerry for his "joke about the troops". Thats how powerful spin and lies can be.

21. Sanchez said the fund-raising allegations are demonstrably false and that he never collected money
Hmm. Non denial denial. The allegations are that he "solicited donations" not that he actually collected anything. Solicitating funds under false pretences would be a crime in and of itself so he is not out of the woods yet.

34. And here I thought that female heterosexual size queens--
-- were more concerned with circumference than length. Not that he wouldn't lie about every dimension, though.

28. Did he ever go to Iraq?
I am confused.

The Marines' investigation of Matt Sanchez, the former Marine and gay porn star (who recently appeared in these pages) took a turn on Friday when the Corps revealed it was investigating Sanchez not only for his career in porn but also for allegedly soliciting funds from the New York City United War Veterans Council and U-Haul for his purported deployment to Iraq.

31. Yes but the problem isn't that he was in gay porn
Personally I don't think any of us care other than the hypocrisy associated with the republican party. It's the fact that he was scamming people for money with this "Iraq Deployment" line. That truly makes him the scum of the earth

32. Heres something i dont know if weve talked about...
Yep, hes a scumbag, id fucking spit on him.... But noticed how he bilked people out of money claiming it was to FUND his DEPLOYMENT!?!?
What this implies to me is that a few corporations and a freaking war Veterans council thought it necessary to giive money to fund going to die in war! This enrages me. It says to me that peopel even know how fucking hard and impossible it is going over there.

Im sure im not conveying myself properly, Im livid...

33. I'm trying to better unstand what these folks were funding
But I'm also wondering if he was asking for favors from these companies using his deployment as an excuse knowing that perhaps U-Haul will give him some free storage (they're one of the people he bilked) because he (matt) was going overseas to Iraq and had a few things to stash

35. "fund deployment" -- I 'm guessing that he made up some
numbers about how much income he was going to lose by going active and leaving his job. He probably told people he had assets at risk and needed the money to keep those rascal creditors off his stuff (like they could legally do that anyway, but alot of people don't know).

He's solicited email at his gmail address: matthew.a.sanchez@gmail.com
