Since 1983, Larry Flynt has sent a copy of Hustler to each and every congressional office, reports The National Journal.
According to the piece:
The dirty mag comes in a plain manila envelope, fairly undetectable to the poor intern or staffer tasked with opening the mail. And every month, there it is: Hustler, featuring dozens of naked or scantly dressed women, vulgar comics, and articles, some satirical, on politics, society, and sex.
In 1984, the U.S. Postal Service asked the U.S. District Court of Washington D.C. to step in and stop the mailings. Unfortunately(?) for our elected officials, the request failed and the court ruled that the delivery was within Hustler's rights.
Larry Flynt has always been a staunch First Amendment supporter, and he sees sending his magazine to Congress as just another expression of that right. Thirty years later, he's still reminding 535 congressman what America is all about.
