“Have you had a sexual encounter with a current member of the United States Congress or a high-ranking government official?”
Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt on Sunday offered up to $1 million for “documented evidence of illicit sexual or intimate relations with a Congressperson, Senator or other prominent officeholder.”
A hard-to-miss full page ad in Sunday’s Washington Post explained that the magazine would pay up to $1 million for evidence which resulted in the magazine publishing a story.
The last time Flynt made such an offer was in October 1998 during the drive to impeach President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
In the following months, the pornographic publishing mogul threatened to expose one or two members of the Republican Congress pushing for the impeachment, according to media reports at the time.
That long-awaited expose, published months after Clinton’s trial, dropped no bombshells, according to a 1999 Slate.com article, but Flynt’s efforts played a role in the resignation of House-speaker designate Bob Livingston of Louisiana. — Reuters
Ironically, Flynt also provides a free subscription to Hustler to every member of Congress.
