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 recpient of political contributions from Nicholas T. Boyas, the owner and CEO of Marina Pacific Distributers, one of the largest producers and distributers of gay porn in the United States.

From the link:

"Some recent releases include "Fire in the Hole", "Flesh and Boners", even a "Velvet Mafia" series."

Well, you can't say the guy doesn't have a sense of humor...

OTOH, the blog's sponsors, with quotes like this:

"Help make George a lame duck." "Show George that America is sick and tired of GOP incompetence and failure."

cause me to suspect his motives.

Just some more pre-election spin. This guy probably gives to both paries and I would love to see the entire list of his political contributions for starters.

People in business up to an including the biggies like Disney, GM, Wal-Mart give money to both parties. Sort of protection money, I guess.

You wouldn't know from the name of the company what they do. I believe this story. It's a so what kind of thing. The RNC didn't take money from Man on Man Hot Monkey Love Action LLC.

The company's name is "Marina Pacific Distributors". Who here would have a clue as to who they were with that name?

So a gay porn producer is donating to Mehlman. He starts donating to Lindsay Graham, I'll call it a trend.

The so what is that the GOP has made opposition to gay marriage one of their major issues, and there are Freepers who say those durn homos are going to hell, are pedophiles, etc. There's only so much hypocracy I am willing to take.

I meant so what in the sense that the RNC is not going to line item every single contribution of $250 from innocuous sounding companies. They likely had no idea who the company was unless they watched the said movies.

Does Marina Pacific Distributors sound like a pro-marriage group to you? You know that there are hundreds of thousands of different donors. Hvaing one bad apple is not a cause for alarm.

But nice try at trying to suppress GOP turnout, DUmmie.

Thank goodness, the people on FR can see beyond your fsux outrage.

BTW, DUmmie troll, how do you know that this wasn't a set up, where the porn producer intentionally sent the money under the innocuous sounding name to set up this faux outrage.

BTW, what are doing hanging out and posting from a leftist site, anyway.

The poster who is so supposedly outraged, WVR, it seems intentionally left out the name of the writer, a joshua micah marshall, who seems to be a big leftist.

While his website seems to a ripoff of Bill O'Reilly's "Talkingpoint memo".

Sorry, I got as far as "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."

I don't know who this yahoo is or what his agenda is, but the ad was NOT race baiting (unless whoever saw it was/is a bigot) and NOWHERE in the ad (that I saw) did it mention anything about Ford accepting political contributions from "Porn Movie Producers."

I moved from VT to Virginia (which may not be the deep South, but it ain't Maine) and I've seen more interracial couples here--with 98% being black men/white women--than anywhere else I've ever lived or visited.

Moreover, it does not appear to be a problem.

Thus, why is it that when black men "choose" to date or marry white women, that's okay, and we never hear anything from the hypocritical Ford's in this country or their enabling MSM (or like this JERK), but when a political ad shows something which "MIGHT" mean Harold met a white lady and she suggests he call her, ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE?

Next time, don't forget the "barf alert."

Marshall is a neo-liberal. Blah.

But, this is a non story. $250 in a sea of donations is nothing. No reason for them to check every check. It would cost more money to research every donor than alot of the checks are worth.

If a porn producer gives campaign contributions to the RNC to help elect more republicans, who then work through an aggressive legislative agenda to clean up the American cultural cesspool, with the goal of eliminating or at least marginalizing the porn industry - what's the problem?

You know if the dems would have just said "so what about that commercial on Ford" the matter would have been dropped quick. Now more Tennesseans know about that commercial than they would have if all had been "So what". I think Republicans do a better job of ignoring nonsense. If the RNC as a whole receive money from this movie company...so what. Does that mean we approve of the movies? No. We are still going to vote Republican and ignore the fact that the company gave money. We are better off this way.

"cause me to suspect his motives."

Suspect? Just look at the disclaimer at the bottom of the screed:

"Let me say, for the record, that I consider pornography not only a legal but a morally unobjectionable product. People in that industry have as much right to participate in the political process as anyone else. And it's difficult for the head of a political committee or a candidate in a political campaign to know the background of every contributor. But hypocrisy blows. And on this issue, as on others, Ken Mehlman's a hypocrite."

Just another lying leftist scumbag.

you are absolutely correct....most of the time...these black men aren't look for wives...rather for the ho's & bee-itchs always rapped about in rap & hip hop "music"....

that is perfectly ok...and when they do th mtv videos to inculcate the next generation....that is not racism...

but put it out in a mild form with a black cnadidate just doing what all those videos and "rap music" scream about....and suddenly.....it is racism!!!!

yeah right.......

BUT...It is not racism when harold ford's father commenting on his son's campaign and confronted by a white reporter....ford repeatedly calls him a "cracker".....

that is not racism!!!!!

"There's only so much hypocracy I am willing to take."

Perhaps you should consult your dictionary. It would only be hypocrisy if the Repubs *knew* who the guy was and took his money anyway. That's not even alleged here.

To acknowledge that it's difficult to know who every small donor is, then in the next breath accuse someone of hypocrisy anyway, is the sort of noxious dishonesty that only a demonrat or other leftist could stomach.

"those durn homos are going to hell"

That's exactly true, unless they repent of their wicked ways.

"are pedophiles"

Straw man.

I searched it, and it showed 3700.00 in contributions in mostly 250 increments. Primarily to the RNC, although a CA Repub and McCain received 250.00

Here was the link, http://query.nictusa.com/cgi-bin/qind/
but it is showing internal error now.

I have no sympathy for the campaigns. Of either party. If they can't be bothered to check who's sending them money, then they deserve what they get. Considering the sophisticated databases they have for trolling for cash, they should be able to figure out who's sending it. Anyone who took this guy's dough deserves the embarrassment.

From the below goole link, it shows a nicholas boyias, of Marine Pacific distibutors of North Hollywood, CA, gave Phil Angelides $1,000.

Link

While on campaignmoney.com a Nicholas Boyias from Chatsworth, CA(about 20 miles west of North Hollywood, CA,) gave about $1,000 total to the national and California RNC.

Link

So this can be a case of two different nicholas boyias, giving to 2 different campaigns.

Well, to be fair, it might not (just) be the FEC. Could be the author of this article. I googled Boyias and got more hits (most of which I did NOT want to check out if you get my drift) than I got with the spelling the author of the above article uses. I also looked up the graphics of the files at the FEC and those pics of the paperwork show the name spelled with the "i".

A big corporation secret:

Many of them have subsidiaries that own sub-subsidiaries that produce porn. Porn is a very profitable industry.

Oh please get off your perfection horse. They get thousands of checks every day and some bad apples are going to get through no matter what.

BTW, when you reach your perfect political world, how bout sending me a post card. JMO, that post card will a long time coming.
