Get Rich Quick Scheme?

Hustler offers $1 million for sex smut on Congress
Sun Jun 3, 11:19 AM ET
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Hustler magazine is looking for some scandalous sex in Washington again -- and willing to pay for it.

"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.

It offered $1 million for documented evidence of illicit intimate relations with a congressman, senator or other prominent officeholder. A toll-free number and e-mail address were provided.

The last time Flynt made such an offer was in October 1998 during the drive to impeach President Bill Clinton' name
over the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

In the following months, the pornographic publishing mogul threatened to
expose one or two members of the Republican Congress pushing for the impeachment, according to media reports at the time.

That long-awaited expose, published months after Clinton's trial, dropped no
bombshells, according to a 1999 Slate.com article, but Flynt's efforts played a
role in the resignation of House-speaker designate Bob Livingston of Louisiana.

Flynt's target this time, if he has one, was not immediately known

So I'm wondering:

  • Will this inspire women and men to seek out these kinds of relationships for the get rich quick aspect?
  • Will this curb congress member interest in sexual dalliances?
  • Will I get a smut-related ad on my site because I posted about this?
