An opposition researcher is as common in politics as having a press secretary or a campaign manager. But a Ron Paul supporter is openly digging for dirt on Perry by taking out an ad in the Austin Chronicle.

The ad placed in the alternative paper by Robert Morrow of CASH (Committee Against Sexual Hypocrisy) asks "Have You Ever Had Sex With Rick Perry?"

For the record, Perry always speaks lovingly about his wife Anita, and there's no proof that Perry has ever had any extra-marital affair

The ad offers a $5,000 reward for "a stripper, an escort, or just a 'young hottie' impressed by an arrogant , entitled Governor of Texas."

Salon.com talked to Morrow, who admitted the "committee" has one person: Robert Morrow.

Salon.com cites that Morrow is also the one-man band behind a South Carolina robo-call campaign against Hillary Clinton in 2008.

Various other websites, including the Washington Post, have picked up the story.
