Apparently, the show’s producer wants him on board. And Larry Flynt is offering the now-former Congressman a job as a Huster lobbyist. These offers always strike me as contradictory: they’re meant to reveal that the offering institution, be it Playboy or a producer, is more open-minded than those Washington schmucks who have called for someone’s downfall. But they end up being part of the narrative of shaming someone who has fallen to scandal instead, evidence of their own complicity, and in fact benefit from, a system that allows them to look edgy.
