Larry Flynt‘s got $1 million for your secrets, assuming your secrets regard Rick Perry‘s sex life. TMZ reports that the Hustler magazine publisher has taken out ads in various newspapers asking, “Have you had a gay or straight sexual encounter with Governor Rick Perry?” and offering a handsome bounty for a good scoop.
This sort of sex-scoop is Flynt’s go-to political maneuver, and the cool $1 million reward has become something of a trademark. In 1998, the “investigative pornographer” famously put down a million for anyone who could bring him dirt on Bill Clinton or the incoming House Speaker Robert Livingston, who ended up resigning after work of his extramarital affairs broke. He’s also made similar offers for just any government official, and most recently, offered a job to ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner. What can we say, the man’s got deep pockets and big dreams of an honest government.
