Have you had sex with Rick Perry?

Hustler publisher Larry Flynt is offering $1 million to anyone who can prove they’ve had a sexual encounter with Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

In ads published in Texas newspapers, Flynt asks, “Have you had a gay or straight sexual encounter with Governor Rick Perry?”

Flynt continues, “Can you provide documented evidence of illicit sexual or intimate relations with the governor? Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine will pay you up to $1 million if we choose to publish your verified story and use your material.”

Perry has been the subject of gay rumors for years, with one Texas newspaper investigating the claims. The Austin Chronicle reporter who wrote the story said “no one would go on the record” about the rumors. Perry’s office has denied that he’s gay.

So, how about it? Is Larry Flynt about to mint a new gay millionaire?
