$1 million for the next Washington sex scandal

“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.

Well, it’s hard to miss if you get your news via dead trees and soy ink. It’s a bit harder to find if you get your news via recycled electrons. But The Indy Voice has a copy of the ad online.

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.

If you want to claim the reward, call 1-800-251-2714 or e-mail hustler@lfp.com.

    Well, Yahoo had a story yesterday about the ‘gay’ muckraker running around DC ‘outing’ closet gays in the national government. Heterosexual and homosexual intercourse on the Hill; it should make for some good reading in the Onion!
