Get stuck into em' Larry....
Flynt's offer, appearing in the Washington Post newspaper, asked
readers to phone their tips to his hotline, or to send an email to a
dedicated online address at his "Hustler" porn magazine.
"Do you have information about infidelity, sexual impropriety or
corruption concerning a current United States senator, congressperson or
prominent government official?" the ad asks in large, bold type.
"Can you provide documented evidence of your claims? Larry Flynt and
Hustler Magazine will pay you up to $1 million if we choose to use your
material and publish your verified story," the ad said, adding that all
correspondence would be kept "strictly confidential."
It is just the latest of the famous porn publisher's sporadic forays into the realm of politics.
Last year he offered disgraced US lawmaker Anthony Weiner a job,
after the New York congressman resigned over a tawdry "sexting" scandal.
He also offered a $1 million dollar reward last year for anyone who
could produce proof of illicit sexual liaisons by then-presidential
contender Rick Perry.
Flynt has fought several prominent legal battles involving the First
Amendment -- the right to free speech guaranteed in the US Constitution
-- and has unsuccessfully run for public office.
He won a seminal free speech case in 1988 before the US Supreme Court.
That case "Hustler Magazine v. Falwell" came after he was sued by
prominent US reverend Jerry Falwell in 1983 over an offensive ad in his
porn publication that parodied the televangelist.
