Dirty, Dirty Sanchez: Anatomy of a Hustler
The slang definition of a hustler is a man who has sex for money. Gay men — as reflected by classics like “Hustler White” and “My Own Private Idaho” — romanticize the lone streetwalker with a heart of gold, but the word has far more insidious implications in the wider lexicon. American Heritage defines “hustler” as “a person who employs fraudulent or unscrupulous methods to obtain money”.
It’s certainly amusing to see gay porn star turned right-wing mouth piece Matt Sanchez/Rod Majors squirm in this hilarious interview with former “Cheaters” host Jack E. Jett, where not only does he say he doesn’t remember sucking cock on film, (these should refresh your memory, hon!) but he goes so far as to espouse this hateful Ann Coutler-esque sound bite:
“Gay men are like fundamentalist Muslims. If you leave their religion they have to send out a fatwa and demand your execution.”
But as it turns out, American Heritage’s definition may be a more accurate way of describing Sanchez. His gay porn past and subsequent amnesia may be be the least of his problems, as he may soon be facing criminal charges for stealing from Army veterans, of all people …
On Sunday, the Military Times reported that Sanchez is under investigation for soliciting $12,000 from private organizations — including the New York City United War Veterans Council — for a deployment to Iraq that he never made. Should we be surprised? A true hustler doesn’t care where his money comes from: a meal ticket is a meal ticket … whether it’s a horny john he picked up on the street or a veteran.
