Flynt Trolls for Capitol Hill Sex Tales
Hustler founder and rabble-rouser Larry Flynt is once again offering money — $1 million, to be exact — to anyone who can prove that they have had an illicit sexual encounter with a member of Congress — the same strategy he used to try to root out Capitol Hill philanderers during President Bill Clinton’s impeachment ordeal.
Wait, before you go…
“Have you had a sexual encounter with a current member of the United States Congress or a high-ranking government official?” read a full-page advertisement taken out by Larry Flynt’s pornographic magazine in Sunday’s Washington Post.
