GOProud’s Matt “I Don’t Like Gay People” Hissey Joins Koch Bros Astroturf Group

GOProud member Matt Hissey has joined the staff of Americans For Prosperity, the Koch Brothers’ astroturf group whose ads are routinely fact-checked as “Pants On Fire.” If Hissey’s name is familiar to you, it’s probably from this 2011 JMG post:

“I don’t really like gay people,” sniffs GOProud member Matt Hissey. “Stereotypical gay people frustrate me,” he adds with a dramatic toss of his frosted blond hair before launching into an attack on nellie men who need to be more “normal and straight-acting.”

Hissey appears twice in the below clip, if you can bear it. Below that is the AFP’s latest attack ad on Tammy Baldwin.
