Good old Larry Flynt is pulling one of his favorite stunts on Repuplican presidential candidate Rick Perry. What do you think, is there someone out there who’ll take the bait? From Reuters:
Pornographic magazine publisher Larry Flynt offered $1 million on Thursday to anyone with proof of “an illicit sexual liaison” involving leading Republican presidential candidate and Texas Governor Rick Perry.
The offer by the politically left-leaning Flynt targeting Perry was similar to past efforts by the Hustler magazine founder to embarrass public figures he dislikes.
Los Angeles-based Larry Flynt Productions, which publishes Hustler, said it bought full-page advertisements in the weekly editions of the U.S. satirical tabloid The Onion and the Austin Chronicle, a Texas alternative paper, seeking evidence of any Perry peccadilloes.
“I’ve been doing this for 35 years,” Flynt said in a telephone interview with Reuters. “We’ve found running these ads were very successful in finding sources to come forward.”
A copy of the most recent ad circulated to the media by Flynt’s company read, “Have you had a gay or straight sexual encounter with Governor Rick Perry?”
“Can you provide documented evidence of illicit sexual or intimate relations with the governor?
