Larry Flynt raises money to beat Rep. Joe Wilson
Hustler publisher and free-speech activist Larry Flynt is helping to raise money for South Carolina Democratic House candidate Rob Miller. But its not clear who will benefit most from Flynts support: Miller or his opponent, Rep. Joe Wilson (R).

The skin-mag publisher used his personal blog Tuesday to rail against Wilson for a host of things, including not supporting healthcare reform; yelling, You lie! during President Barack Obamas 2009 joint address to Congress; and having worked as an aide to former Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.).

Flynts publication even gave Wilson a very unflattering award last month (look it up if you really want to know).

Flynt only mentions Miller once in the second-to-last paragraph of a long post. But that may be a good thing for Miller in a conservative, GOP-leaning district.
