BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.  — Hustler founder Larry Flynt is not letting Mitt Romney slide.

The adult industry icon is offering $1 million in cash for proof of the Republican Presidential nominee’s tax returns/and or details of his offshore assets, bank accounts and business partnerships.

A full-page ad was scheduled to run in the Sunday Washington Post followed by placement in the Tuesday edition of USA Today.

In the ad Flynt asks “What is He Hiding?” and demands verified proof before he shells out the dough and runs the story in Hustler magazine.

The ad says all all correspondence will be kept confidential.

Flynt also took issue with the Romney candidacy last July when he said that even if Romney made good on his vow to “vigorously” prosecute pornographers if elected President, he’d fail to make it happen.

At that time, Flynt responded to a Daily Caller story about the meeting between Morality in Media President Patrick Trueman and the Romney campaign where Trueman said a Romney aide pledged that the GOP candidate would help bring back federal porn prosecutions if elected.

The promise also popped up as a plank in the 2012 GOP Party platform.

But paying millions for dirt on politicians is nothing new for the First Amendment crusader.

Last March Flynt also took a full page ad in Sunday Washington Post offering $1 million for information on any possible sex scandal involving U.S. senators, congresspersons or prominent government officials.

And last September the mogul offered $1 million for dirt on then Presidential candidate Texas governor Rick Perry.
