(Newser) Hustler publisher Larry Flynt is ready to cough up a cool $1 million for an up close and personal look at something lusted after by Democrats everywhere: Namely, Mitt Romney's tax returns. Flynt is offering the reward to anyone who can dig up new evidence of the GOP candidate's "unreleased tax returns and/or details of his offshore assets, bank accounts, and business partnerships," reports CNN. Political observers are torn over whether Flynt's offer is more about keeping the Romney tax issue, or just Hustler, in the headlines.

Flynt ran ads in today's Washington Post, and they'll be in USA Today on Tuesday. His offer comes just days after hackers said they had dug up Romney's old tax returns and would release them unless he paid up $1 million. Flynt offered $1 million for evidence of a Rick Perry affair last year and in the past has offered rewards for catching other politicians with their pants down.

Go Larry go! This should inspire a few hackers to revel the truth.

For *years*, the Republicans roasted Flynt in the fires of one Congressional committee after another, because busting Hustler's owner made them "champions of morality", and besides: what the hell could this insignificant little smutmonger do to avenge himself against the Mighty Republican Army Of God™? Why, **nothing**, obviously. Mittens? Newt-ster? Take a long, hard look at "nothing". It ain't pretty, **is it**? Well done, Mr Flynt.

How appropriate, since both Rummy the Bummy and Lyin' Ryan look like the PORNMEISTERS they are!
