Hustling On The Hill
Is he lobbying? Larry Flynt sends freebies to Washington officials.
WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, Nov. 21) -- The perpetually controversial publisher of Hustler has sent free subscriptions of the magazine to the president, the vice president, the Supreme Court justices and House and Senate members.
Larry Flynt's unsolicited mailing was first reported in Friday's Washington Post. "Your constituents already love Hustler for its humor, reviews, investigative journalism and unadulterated sex," Flynt told recipients in a cover letter. "That's why we call our publication America's Magazine.
"Confidentially, many of your peers in the Senate and the House of Representatives (not to mention higher government offices) already read Hustler," he added. "We are happy to keep all of you up-to-date."
No word yet on whether Hugh Hefner is going to match this bipartisan show of generosity.
