Marine corporal Matt Sanchez is having even more problems than a few gay porn flicks. You might remember Sanchez as the good-looking marine who complained that students at Columbia University harassed him for being in the military. He made a big stink of it and the fundies picked him up as their poster child de jour until his past star status in the gay porn industry was uncovered by bloggers. The darling of conservatives for about a half a minute is now facing larceny charges as well.

From the Marine Corps Times:

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.
[A staff judge advocate Reserve Col. Charles] Jones wrote that Sanchez's 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 commandant's 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.

As Joe says, "I am so glad that Sanchez says he's "not gay". Even though he says in a Radar interview today that he has enjoyed sex with men, we should be thankful that he is not claiming us. Very thankful."

John Aravosis over at AmericaBlog says Dirty Sanchez reminds him of most gay Republicans. For those of you who think I'm particularly harsh on our confused gay brethren, go see what Aravosis says in Anatomy of a gay Republican.
