Larry Flynt raises money to beat Rep. Joe Wilson

Hustler publisher and free-speech activist Larry Flynt is helping to raise money for South Carolina Democratic House candidate Rob Miller. But it’s not clear who will benefit most from Flynt’s support: Miller or his opponent, Rep. Joe WilsonAddison (Joe) Graves WilsonSacha Baron Cohen mulls arming toddlers with guns in inaugural episode Why civility in politics won't be getting any better Overnight Defense: VA pick breezes through confirmation hearing | House votes to move on defense bill negotiations | Senate bill would set 'stringent' oversight on North Korea talks MORE (R). 

The skin-mag publisher used his personal blog Tuesday to rail against Wilson for a host of things, including not supporting healthcare reform; yelling, “You lie!” during President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaMontana governor raises profile ahead of potential 2020 bid Trump was right to ditch UN’s plan for handling migrants Ex-White House stenographer: Trump is ‘lying to the American people’ MORE’s 2009 joint address to Congress; and having worked as an aide to former Sen.

Flynt’s publication even gave Wilson a very unflattering award last month (look it up if you really want to know).

Flynt only mentions Miller once in the second-to-last paragraph of a long post. But that may be a good thing for Miller in a conservative, GOP-leaning district.

The National Republican Congressional Committee was quick to spin the endorsement in Wilson’s favor. An NRCC spokesman told the Palmetto Scoop, “It’s no surprise that a prominent purveyor of pornography is hustling up campaign cash for Rob Miller.”

Democrats countered that Miller hadn’t asked for the endorsement.

As for Miller, the voice mailbox at his campaign office is full, and no one answered ITK’s repeated calls.
