Hustler's Larry Flynt puts $1M bounty on 'scandalous' Trump tapes

Prominent pornographer Larry Flynt is outraged by Republican nominee Donald Trump's alleged treatment of women.

In fact, the Hustler magazine publisher is so disgusted that he is putting up a $1 million reward for any "scandalous" recordings of Trump. The reward will be paid for "verifiable video footage or audio recordings for use prior to the November 8 election clearly showing Donald Trump engaging in illegal activity or acting in a sexually demeaning or derogatory manner," according to a statement from the magazine.

The full statement can be seen at thedonaldtapes.com, a website created to "streamline the submission process," according to Hustler spokeswoman Minda Gowen.

Flynt, 73, appears to have been motivated by Trump's comments about groping women on a 2005 recording and the recent allegations of sexual misconduct by Trump that have surfaced.

“I have always celebrated women," Flynt said in a statement. "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.”

Flynt is also "appalled at the hypocrisy of our elected officials," according to the statement. In particular, he sees hypocrisy in Trump's claims that "'nobody has more respect for women than me"' despite tremendous amounts of evidence to the contrary."

Flynt has openly opposed Trump for president. He has endorsed Hillary Clinton, created a Trump porn parody and said he may move to Canada if Trump wins.

As the publisher of a hardcore pornographic magazine, Flynt has long faced criticism for his own treatment of women. Many consider the depictions of women in his publications as sexist and misogynistic.

Flynt posted similar bounties for evidence of political figures' indiscretions in the past, including in 1998 during Bill Clinton's impeachment.
