Once again, someone is looking for hard evidence regarding Gov. Rick Perry's alleged extramarital affairs.
Larry Flynt, the notorious publisher of Hustler Magazine, purchased a full-page advertisement in the Austin Chronicle, offering $1 million to anyone was has had a gay or straight sexual encounter with Perry and has the evidence to prove it.
Can you provide documented evidence of illicit sexual or intimate relations with the governor? LARRY FLYNT and HUSTLER MAGAZINE will pay you up to $1 million if we choose to publish your verified story and use your material, it reads, according to Salon.com, which obtained a copy of the advertisement.
There are longstanding rumors that the family values candidate has had affairs with a variety of characters, including men, strippers and prostitutes. However, at this point, there has been no evidence to indicate Perry has been unfaithful to Anita Perry, his wife of almost 30 years.
Flynt's offer comes only a month after Robert Morrow, a Texas-based Ron Paul supporter, took out a similar ad in the Austin Chronicle.
Morrow, a Republican, told Salon that he knows of strippers in Austin who know shocking details about Perry's private life, but said none of them are willing to come forward to the press.
However, Flynt may have the means to actually find some dirt on Perry. In fact, it wouldn't be his first time. In 1998, Flynt effectively ended the political career of former Rep. Bob Livingston after offering $1 million through an ad in The Washington Post for evidence of sexual indescretions by Republicans seeking to impeach President Bill Clinton.
Livingston, who was in line to succeed Newt Gingrich as Speaker of the House, resigned from congress after four women came forward claiming they had sexual encounters with the Louisiana congressman.
