Hustler Magazine’s founder Larry Flynt is offering up to $1million (that is right), 1 million US dollars to anyone who can provide him with ‘scandalous’ video or audio recordings of Donald Trump before the election on November 8.
The founder and chairman of once global porn magazine, Hustler said he was inspired by the claims of sexual assault and harassment directed at Trump by nine women in the past week to make the offer on website The Donald Tapes.
‘I have always celebrated women. Women in all shapes and sizes. To treat a woman like Mr Trump himself has is both disappointing and unbelievable, especially coming from someone who wants to be our President.’ he said.
The site specifically asks for verifiable footage ‘clearly showing Donald Trump engaging in illegal activity or acting in a sexually demeaning or derogatory manner.’

Flynt has asked anyone with compromising information to upload it to The Donald Tapes website.
His request comes after footage from 2005 was leaked this week showing Trump boasting that the could force himself on any woman without consequence.
Most famously, the clip shows Trump saying he can ‘grab (women) by the p****y.’
This election seems to have inspired a particularly fervent disgust in Flynt.
In an interview with Man of the World magazine last week, he said: ‘Trump is such a narcissist, such a liar, I don’t even know that he’s conscious of every lie he tells.
‘He’s really a sick puppy.’
He also said that he would vote for Clinton over ‘carnival barker’ Trump, not because he was an enthusiastic supporter but because the Republican candidate repulses him.
And in a March interview with The Daily Beast, Flynt said: ‘[T]he kind of cars he drives and the kind of buildings he builds, it all has to do with trying to compensate maybe for a lack of manhood.
‘Trump’s probably got a three-inch d**k.’
Flynt has clearly spent some time thinking on that subject: In April, Hustler produced a porn ‘parody’ of Trump titled ‘The Donald.’
The 73-year-old businessman’s deal mirrors a similar offer in 1998, during the impeachment of Bill Clinton, for evidence that Republican members of Congress had dirty deeds to their own names.
That led to Flynt publishing a report about Bob Livingston, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, having an affair.
Livingston admitted the affair and retired from the running for Speaker.
Flynt renewed that offer in 2007. And in 2012 he offered $1million to see Mitt Romney’s unreleased tax returns.
