SALT LAKE CITY — “Hustler” magazine founder Larry Flynt is reportedly threatening to send each member of the Utah State Legislature a copy in protest of the recent anti-porn resolution.

In a statement published by the Washington Times, Flynt declared the Utah State Legislature, “is obviously confused about what constitutes a public health crisis, so I’ll send them our latest issue and they can see for themselves that we’re no danger to the public, only to the repressed.”

Flynt also said supporters of the resolution were only dragging this out now “to satisfy religious zealots.”

On Tuesday, Utah Governor Gary Herbert held a ceremonial signing for Sen. Todd Weiler’s non-binding resolution that declares pornography “a public health crisis.” Supporters of the resolution said that it highlights problems associated with pornography and they hope more is done to restrict youth access to adult materials.

Flynt has famously given each member of Congress a copy of “Hustler” since 1983, whether they want it or not.
