Larry Flynt says he bought nude photos of Jessica Lynch for Hustler, but won’t use them because he’s a nice guy:
Flynt told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he bought the photos last month from the men who purportedly participated in the amateur shoot with the Army supply clerk. The soldiers “wanted to let it be known that she’s not all apple pie,” Flynt said.
“My first intention was to publish them, but I don’t think it was the best, positive move I could make,” Flynt said in a telephone interview. “She’s very much a pawn for the government. They force-fed us a Joan of Arc.”
….Flynt said the photographs appeared to be taken in an Army barracks, and showed Lynch topless and fully nude, frolicking with the soldiers.
He would not say what he paid for the photographs, which he said he’d lock in a vault.
“Some things are more important than money,” he said. “You gotta do the right thing.” [AP]
