What Larry Flynt is looking for

Larry Flynt has put out another of his million dollar offers for evidence of sexual scandal in Washington D.C.

Reports in the Establishment media suggest that Flynt is on a simple fishing expedition. It seems more likely that his objective is to join the dots between the Washington DC madam scandal and the Abramoff/Wilkes/GOP corruption scandal.

In particular it has been alleged in a number of indictments in the Cunningham/Wilkes corruption scandal that Wilkes and Wade entertained senior members of Congress in the WaterGate hotel at parties where poker, alcohol and prostitutes were provided.

Quite a few people have wondered if there is a link here to the ongoing Palfrey 'D.C. Madam' case. Did she provide the prostitutes? It appears that prosecutors might think so.

Of course the total lack on interest in this particular story by the Establisment media raises questions itself. The allegations are made in federal court indictments in cases that have already led to Congressman Cunningham going to jail for taking $2.5 million in bribes. Instead we are told about how much Democratic candidates have spent on haircuts.
