Marco Rubio, the young and ambitious Presidential candidate, has been indirectly linked to the gay porn underworld by the Miami New Times.
In a report, released Thursday, Jan. 28, the alternative news weekly reveals Rubio’s high school friend, Angel Barrios owned a property management company that rented a house to a gay porn production studio. The studio, reportedly, produced live, real time sex scenes featuring desirable Latino and Black models.
The site in question, CocoDorm.com, appears to still be active.
Meanwhile, Miami New Times decided to dig deeper into Rubio’s relationship with Barrios following a Jan. 21 report in the Washington Post detailing the early years of young Marco. The two were arrested in a crime-ridden park in May of 1990.
“When he was 18 years old, he violated a municipal code for drinking beer in a public park after hours,” Rubio strategist Todd Harris told the newspaper. “He was never taken into custody, never hired a lawyer and never appeared in court. Why the Washington Post thinks this is a story is beyond me.”
Barrio, likewise, is deflecting attention. He told the New Times it was his understanding, Flava Works, the firm responsible for signing the rent checks, was a “digital media company.”
