Nev. hookers ‘Pimping for Paul’
New York Post ^ | Feb. 4, 2012 | Geoff Earle

WASHINGTON — Among Ron Paul’s legions of freedom-loving followers, the prostitutes from Las Vegas’ famed Moonlight Bunny Ranch stand out — as passionately loyal.

Brothel owner Dennis Hof’s “Pimping for Paul” campaign even tries to raise political contributions — in cash.

Hof, who attended Paul’s Thursday night rally in Reno, told NBC-TV, “The Bunny Ranch bunnies are supporting Ron Paul because he’s for states’ rights . . . We love Ron Paul!”

His girlfriend, Cami Parker, added, “All the bunny babes are registered Republicans [and] will be at [today’s] caucus.”

Paul has said he doesn’t think government can “legislate virtue.”

Drugs and prostitution are not the number 1 and number 2 interests for all Libertarians.

Just most of 'em.

Your elected officials are no different than the prostitutes in the streets. Your elected officials have sold the future of your children to endless debt. What they do for themselves is no more honorable than the typical pimp and prostitute. This is such a stupid story knowing damn well it's all be design.

Reminds me of the old story...

Man to attractive woman in bar: Would you sleep with me for ten dollars?
Woman (*aghast*): Are you kidding? NO! I should slap your face!
Man: How about a million dollars? Would you sleep with me for a million dollars?
Woman: Oh? Now you’re talking!
Man: I’ll give you $20
Woman: What happened to a million?
Man: Well, we’ve established what you are, now we are just haggling over price.

Exactly, he, like many libertarians and almost all liberals, really think that criminal violations are not immoral. It is a kind of spiritual blindness, very sad to see and extremely irritating to try to intellectually argue against.

It’s ironic though — boner pills are the sexual equivalent of fiat money.

Thanks La Enchiladita.

The author could profit by taking a field trip to Las Vegas before he writes his next exposé on a Republican.

Prostitution is illegal in Clark County and has been forever.

Gambling? Well, that's another thing.

You have it exactly backwards.

A moral violation should not be criminal.

We've presumably progressed as a society beyond the dunking chair and the stocks as punishment for gossips, trollops and busybodies.

The government needs to stay out of our bedroom and out of out wallet.

You won't find many liberals agreeing with that, and all too few conservatives, unfortunately.

I strongly disagree. At least prostitutes are honest about what they do and actually give you some value for your money... Though I suppose if you're a Jeff Immelt or John Corzine, you get far more value for your "contributions."

Sorry, but "the law" and morality are often diametrically opposed. In many cases it takes decades for the law to catch up with morality which also changes with time in every society.

How long ago was the SCOTUS Dread Scott decision the law of the land? Was that moral? For example, not so long ago, it was a crime for a Black man or woman to marry a White woman or man. Was violating that law "immoral?" How about the the people currently being held in jail in NYC for handgun law violations? I believe one is a decorated US Marine. In these cases, they actually attempted to comply with what they believed to be the law, and they were immediately arrested. Are their actions, carrying concealed weapons, immoral?

These are just off the top of my head with no thought; I'm sure I can come up with many more.

That is correct! If one picks up a hooker in Las Vegas, one does it at one's legal peril (unless, I guess, if one happens to be a powerful Democrat); however, Reno is not in Clark Country (the county that contains Las Vegas).

Maybe the states should decide if they want to legalize prostitution or not.

Better still, make it a local decision how this kind of "crime" should be dealt with. That's how I believe Nevada handles prostitution, gambling, etc., in the absence of a prohibitory state law.

As if Las Vegas (Clark County) LEOs don't have enough to handle with the casinos and hotels and millions of visitors from every corner of the world every year, maybe they'd rather not be trying to distinguish between "legal" hookers and the amateurs who allegedly flock (sp?) there during big conventions and trade shows. Arrest them all and there will be no confusion.

This anti-hooker attitude also contributes to the "family-friendly" image Las Vegas is trying to cultivate. The rest of the state could care less about image.

Such local option should not apply, of course, to real crimes such as kidnapping, rape, assault, murder, theft, arson, etc., for which the accused would be tried in a state court and imprisoned in a state prison if found guilty. (Could you imagine the impact on prisons if hookers were thrown in the joint with rapists, murderers and convicted child molesters?)
