Sleuth: Although Larry Flynt concedes that his investigative team has been looking into Lott’s private life, the Hustler impresario hasn’t yet divulged any details.
Sen. Trent Lott’s sudden resignation announcement on Monday sparked speculation, starting on the Web site Big Head DC, that Lott decided to step down in order to avoid an exposé about his personal life by porn baron and political provocateur Larry Flynt. So far, Flynt has confirmed only that Lott has been the subject of an “ongoing investigation” by his research team.
HUSTLER Magazine has received numerous inquiries regarding the involvement of Larry Flynt and HUSTLER in the resignation of Trent Lott. Senator Lott has been the target of an ongoing HUSTLER investigation for some time now, due to confidential information that we have received.
