Hypocritically, RNC Took Money From Gay Porn King

Posted on Oct 30, 2006
Nicholas Boyias
from IMDB

Nicholas T. Boyias, CEO of Marina Pacific Distributors, one of the largest producers and distributors of gay porn in the United States, is a regular RNC donor.

The Republican National Committee is a regular recipient of political contributions from Nick Boyias, right, one of America’s largest gay porn distributors. The hypocrisy: The RNC ran an ad last week accusing Rep. Harold Ford (D-Tenn.) of taking money from pornographic movie producers. (TPM has the scoop.)

(h/t: Huff Po)


TPM:

RNC Chief Ken Mehlman accepted political contributions from gay porn king?

Last week, you’ll remember, the RNC, headed by Ken Mehlman, was running that race-baiting ‘bimbo’ ad against Rep. Harold Ford (D) down in Tennessee. One of the barbs in that ad was the claim that Ford had taken political contributions from “porn movie producers.”

But it seems there is plenty of porn movie producer money to go around.

It turns out that the Republican National Committee is a regular recipient of political contributions from Nicholas T. Boyias, the owner and CEO of Marina Pacific Distributors, one of the largest producers and distributors of gay porn in the United States. This recent article on Marina Pacific’s new marketing campaign form XBiz, a porn industry trade sheet, notes that, in addition to producing its own material, the “company acts as a distribution house to hundreds of lines, mostly gay, 40 of which can be purchased only through MPD.”

Wow! Contributions from a gay porn king. This lends itself to all sorts of snarky ideas…

Did they have to wash the money? Bills keep sticking together?

Jeff Gannon was the biggest contribution. How big? His website has pictures to prove it.

The Republicans got donations from a male porn maven. What kind? Sperm donations! (OK, that was disgusting. Sorry.)
