Bolton gets Hustlered

Hustler mag publisher Larry Flynt is accusing Bush's UN nominee, John Bolton of refusing to answer questions about forced sex, according to Raw Story. The release includes this explosive opening: "Corroborated allegations that Mr. Bolton’s first wife, Christina Bolton, was forced to engage in group sex have not been refuted by the State Department...information from numerous sources [reveal] that Mr. Bolton participated in paid visits to Plato’s Retreat, the popular swingers club that operated in New York City in the late 1970s and early 1980s." Ick...but maybe the mustache was a bit more stylish back then... (Raw Story)
