Porn king offers $1mn for sex dirt on US politicos

Washington: Porn mogul Larry Flynt in a full
page newspaper ad in Monday offered USD 1 million for information
about the sexual indiscretions of well-known US politicians or
government officials.

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 on-line 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 USD 1
million if we choose to used 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 USD 1 million 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.
