Cunning Stunt? Porn Industry Wants Bailout

Hustler Magazine publisher Larry Flynt has asked the government for a $5 billion dollar bailout package.
In what may be a legit need, or just a way to yank Congress' chain, Hustler Magazine publisher Larry Flynt has asked the government for a $5 billion dollar bailout package for the adult entertainment industry since magazine and DVD sales are down. I guess Nailin' Palin didn't do as well as expected...

Flynt, a satirist and free speech advocate as well as a pornographer, states:

People are too depressed to be sexually active. This is very unhealthy as a nation. Americans can do without cars and such but they cannot do without sex. With all this economic misery and people losing all that money, sex is the farthest thing from their mind. It's time for congress to rejuvenate the sexual appetite of America. The only way they can do this is by supporting the adult industry and doing it quickly.

Now I might inclined to support this stimulus package, except Flynt is in bed on the proposal with the biggest piece of scum ever in the adult industry, Joe Francis, the mastur mastermind behind Girls Gone Wild.  Francis is currently out on bail awaiting federal tax evasion chargesafter spending nearly a year in jail in Reno, NV on the tax charges to avoid extradition to Panama City FL where he was wanted for  six felony counts of conspiracy, prostitution and filming underage girls in sexual situations, plus charges for smuggling contraband into a Florida jail where he was serving a month for contempt.
