Report: MLG-endorsed NM House candidate and ‘CNN hero’ appears to have past as porn actor

According to a report done by a prominent investigative firm, Democrat Roger Montoya, running for an open seat in the 40th District of the New Mexico House of Representatives, has apparently appeared in multiple pornographic gay films, something he has made no mention of in any public media or any other place.

In 2019, Montoya was chosen by CNN as a “CNN Hero” for his role in the performing arts, where the network highlighted his longtime battle with AIDS, writing, “by the late 1980s, he was HIV-positive.” 

Montoya is a favorite of many top-level Democrat politicians in New Mexico. He has the endorsements of Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich, and has received over $2,500 from “MLG PAC,” Lujan Grisham’s political action committee. He has received campaign funds and endorsements from the pro-abortion group Planned Parenthood Votes New Mexico and the environmental group the Sierra Club. In 2019, Gov. Lujan Grisham appointed Montoya to the Human Rights Commission at the Department of Workforce Solutions following the CNN award.

The investigative report found that Montoya appears to have had unprotected sex in multiple gay films titled “Hot Male Mechanics,” “Spring Training,” “The Lumber Yard,” “Falcon Bareback,” and “Hot Chili Peppers 2” going by the name “Joe Savage” or “Eric Martinez.” One source notes, “Joe Savage has concentrated on working with Distribpix / Video-X-Pix, Falcon Studios, and Midnight Video.” These all appear to be pornographic production companies.

The report by the investigator reads:

I then used open media sources to obtain photographs of Roger Montoya. … All the photographs were then put on the same spreadsheet for comparisons. All the photographs show similar facial features. Although there is a 35-year difference, there are cues noticed in the ears, specifically the ear lobes. The eyebrows and chin structure are also similar.

The report concluded that it was the opinion of two investigators that the “similarities in the photographs are a good match that Roger Montoya and Joe Savage are one in the same.”

An independent investigation by the Piñon Post of the provided photographs by the investigator matched these photographs to those posted on the website “Gay Santa Fe,” which did a piece on Montoya after the “CNN Heroes” story. 

The story included photographs of Montoya dancing, as well as a headshot from around the time he may have appeared in pornographic movies, which was approximately around the year 1985, according to Joe Savage’s profile on IMDB

The body type of the head/body shot from the “Joe Savage” pornography profile on “Hot Movies,” provided by the investigator, appears to be similar to that of the Gay Santa Fe photograph showing Montoya dancing.

To further validate the similarities between both men, Piñon Post took the photographs from the Joe Savage profile and searched them in the “PimEyes” online search platform, which matches visually similar images up with others on the internet. One of the search results that came up matched the 1980s photograph to a much more recent one of Roger Montoya from a website called “Living Juicy,” as well as other graphic images from Joe Savage’s pornographic films. Note: graphic search results have been blurred out.

The Piñon Post reached out to Mr. Montoya for comment via telephone and email correspondence on multiple occasions, but did not hear back and could not leave a message due to his voicemail inbox being full. If Montoya does care to comment, this report will be updated. Montoya is running against Republican Justin Salazar-Torres for the 40th District New Mexico House seat.

Note: No direct links to Joe Savage’s/Eric Martinez’s pornographic videos are embedded in this article, due to their graphic nature. Photographs and headshots of Joe Savage/Eric Martinez are copyright of “Falcon Studios.”
