Flynt to run for CA Governor

Larry Flynt, the man behind Hustler, Barely Legal and a cadre of other porn industry names under the monolith that is known as Larry Flynt Productions, is running to become the replacement governor of California. In a Los Angeles Times interview, Flynt said “California is the most progressive state in the union. I don’t think anyone here will have a problem with a smut peddler as governor.” The San Francisco Chronicle has a more in-depth article.

Flynt is running under the Democrat ticket and has a sordid history of being a pseudo-champion of women’s rights. Information about Flynt’s candidacy and his standing on issues can be found at his website,
