Hustler's Larry Flynt offers $1 million for Romney financial records

The publisher of Hustler has a million dollars he wants to hand out, but be forewarned: it very well might be the most un-sexy proposition he has ever made. Larry Flynt has placed a bounty on Mitt Romney’s tax records.
Flynt, the 69-year-old self-described “smut peddler who cares,” has offered to pay a cool million to anyone willing to provide the pornography kingpin with the tax records of Romney, the millionaire Republican Party presidential candidate who has adamantly declined to make public the majority of his tax filings.
Romney has so far produced his tax returns for the years 2010 and 2011, but the contents of the rest of his records remain an issue of debate. Flynt wants that information in the public domain, however, and has paid for two full-page newspaper ads asking for anyone with inside knowledge to step forward with the files.
Flynt placed an advertisement in Sunday’s Washington Post "offering up to a million dollars in cash for documented evidence concerning Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's unreleased tax returns and/or details of his offshore assets, bank accounts and business partnerships.” The ad is expected to run again in the Tuesday, September 11, 2012 edition of USA Today.

This is probably a Hoax!

Assuming it’s not a hoax, the purported theft of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s tax returns has all the trappings of a high-tech whodunit: a politically themed burglary, a $1 million demand in hard-to-trace Internet currency, password-protected data and a threat to reveal everything in three more weeks. But can it be believed?

It could be a bluff.

Mitt Romney really DOES have something to hide, but only he knows it (along with the IRS). The bluffer pretends to have the records, and plans to release them and derail his election campaign. Romney WILL negotiate in order to save his skin, but will hold out in the hope that the secret service will find the data & blackmailer, thus saving him both $1 million and the election campaign.

The alternative is a sting, where the $1 million is paid as demanded, but the secret service follow the unfollowable, hoping that the blackmailer truly believes even they can't trace Bitcoin.

Larry Flynt decides this is worth poking his nose in just to get some publicity for him, as well as instant popularity from around half of all Americans. If true, and Larry gets the tax records for the $1 million, he will have some very powerful information which could make him ten times as much if handled properly. Even if not true, Larry STILL gains publicity and grudging admiration from half of all Americans.

The more Romney squirms, the more people will think he has to hide. Even if the information never comes to light, it could still derail his campaign. If Romney is squeaky clean, and just wanted privacy on principle, then he has the choice to release the records, thus proving it to be a big fuss about nothing, and a deliberate smear campaign. This could swing things the other way, making him even MORE popular if he spins it right.

Incidentally, I have gotten hold of Bryan's tax records going back to when he was only 12, and BOY does he have somethig to hide:eek: I am offering these to anyone prepared to give me £1 million anonymously. The money is to be placed in a brown envelope and placed between the two fruit machines on the left at Sandbach services at 1am. My agent will be dispatched to collect it shortly before a major league football match kicks off. There is no way anyone could follow them when the place is heaving with fans; anyone who tries will be outed loudly as a supporter of the other team in the room full of fans:D
