Larry Flynt, the publisher of Hustler magazine and a long-time advocate of the First Amendment, wants Donald Trump out of the presidency so badly that he’s offering a reward to anybody who gives him impeachment-inducing information.
And Flynt is going mainstream, publishing a full-page ad in Sunday’s edition of the Washington Post saying he’d pay $10 million for help.
Flynt apparently is incensed for what he feels are Trump’s numerous conflicts of interest, his “hundreds of bald-faced lies,” and his “gross nepotism and appointment of unqualified persons to high office.” That’s why Flynt is prepared to pay out eight figures if someone can give him a “smoking gun” that would help get Trump thrown out of office.
At the bottom of the ad, Flynt offers a phone number and an email address and promises confidentiality.
“Impeachment would be a messy, contentious affair, but the alternative—three more years of destabilizing dysfunction—is worse,” Flynt wrote in the ad. “ … I feel it is my patriotic duty, and the duty of all Americans, to dump Trump before it’s too late.”
Ten years ago, Flynt bought a full-page Post ad and offered a $1 million reward for anybody who could provide him evidence about anybody in Congress having an affair. In 1998, in the wake of the Bill Clinton impeachment, Flynt offered a similar proposition, and that helped lead to the resignation of GOP Rep. Bob Livingston, who had been elected to become House speaker.
A spokesperson for the Post declined to comment on how much Sunday’s ad cost, but she said, “We give advertisers wide latitude to have their say. Generally, if the ads are not illegal or advocating illegal actions, we try not to place limits on speech or content.”
Earlier this week, a top Democrat donor who gave more than $91 million in the 2016 election cycle demanded that lawmakers and candidates vow to impeach Trump.
