(Liberty21 Institute) — “I’m endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.”

So declared Larry Flynt, founder of the Hustler magazine empire that has made millions photographing nude women. Flynt proffered his enthusiastic endorsement in an interview with Bloomberg.

Flynt’s endorsement of Mrs. Clinton, a feminist icon, is ripe for ridicule and taking shots at the Clintons, of whom Flynt has long been a big supporter. It would be easy to simply mock it. That, however, would be a mistake. Behind Flynt’s endorsement of Mrs. Clinton are some serious issues and concerns.
