Adult entertainment publisher Larry Flynt has jumped into the Indiana U.S. Senate race by offering Richard Mourdock $1 million for proof that to substantiate his comments made during last week’s debate that, “even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”
Flynt took out the full page ad in today’s Indianapolis Star. It is also linked on his web page.
For those of who don’t get the newspaper or go to Flint’s website, we have pasted the text below.
Dear Mr. Mourdock,
I am offering you $1 million in cash, to be deposited in any bank you designate in the United States, Cayman Islands or Switzerland, for proof to substantiate your statement on Tuesday, October 23, 2012, that “even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”
Please be kind enough to verify your claim for a wondering nation. I will accept for purposes of this reward any verifiable transcript of your personal conversations with God; letters, email, text messages or videos from God, or messages addressed to you from God transmitted by any third party, including the Republican National Committee or the Romney/Ryan campaign.
I assume that you would not have made this statement unless you had been authorized by God. No one who believes in God would ever use the Almighty’s name in vain. That would be blasphemy. I am eager to receive your proof and pay my $1 million reward to you. Please send evidence immediately to me.
This offer is valid until 8 P.M. (ET) on November 5, 2012.
Howey Politics and DePauw University will have a poll out tomorrow on the U.S. Senate and Governor’s race.
