Larry Flynt offers $1M for dirt on lawmakers, government officials

Larry Flynt is on the trail for any dirt on congressional lawmakers and government officials. 

The Hustler magazine publisher placed a full-page ad in Sunday's Washington Post, offering upward of $1 million for any information about "infidelity, sexual impropriety or corruption concerning a U.S. senator, congressperson or prominent government official."

The ad says sources with documented evidence would be paid if Flynt publishes the "verified story." He is asking for submissions by phone or email. 

In September, Flynt went after former Republican presidential contender Rick Perry, offering a million-dollar bounty to anyone "who can document an illicit sexual encounter with the Texas governor. 

Flynt also placed a similar ad 14 years ago in the Post, prompted by President Clinton's impeachment trial for perjury in his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. 

He asked for any information about government officials having "an adulterous sexual encounter," like Clinton. 

In late 1998, Flynt exposed then incoming Speaker Bob Livingston (R-La.), set to take over for Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) for several affairs. After the revelations, Livingston shocked fellow colleagues when he stepped down as Speaker-elect and decided to leave the House in May 1999.
