Ron Paul endorsed by Nevada brothel owner (Yet Dr Paul Claims He's GOP?)
Arizona Daily Star ^

Posted on 11/25/2007 8:11:35 PM PST by SandRat

RENO, Nev. — Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, an underdog Texas congressman with a libertarian streak, has picked up an endorsement from a Nevada brothel owner.

Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite BunnyRanch near Carson City, said he was so impressed after hearing Paul at a campaign stop in Reno last week that he decided to raise money for him.

Instead of a “money bomb”, it’ll be a Bunny Bomb! If the “girls” support Paul, wouldn’t that be “Boobs for a Boob”?

Bush event organizers OK with porn star's attendance - Spokesman for GOP committee says Mary Carey, boss all paid up
by Ron Strom    WorldNetDaily
Entered into the database on Thursday, June 02nd, 2005 @ 16:40:12 MST


 

A spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, which is hosting President Bush at a $2,500-a-plate fund-raiser this month, has confirmed that porn star and potential California lieutenant governor candidate Mary Carey will attend the event with her boss, pornographer Mark Kulkis, saying they've paid their money like everyone else.

As WorldNetDaily reported, the buxom Carey, 24, ran for California governor against Arnold Schwarzenegger on a platform that included taxing breast enhancements, making lap dances tax deductible, recruiting porn stars as "ambassadors of good will" and putting Web cams up in every room of the governor's mansion.

"I'm hoping to run as lieutenant governor of California next year," Carey said. "Since Arnold [Schwarzenegger] is a Republican, I thought this dinner would be a great networking opportunity for me."

Added Carey: "I'm especially looking forward to meeting Karl Rove. Smart men like him are so sexy. I know that he's against gay marriage, but I think I can convince him that a little girl-on-girl action now and then isn't so bad!"

Since the news first broke about Carey's attendance, columnists have written about Carey's plans to dine with Bush, saying it defies the president's "family values" persona.

Carl Forti is communications director for the National Republican Congressional Committee, which raises funds for GOP congressional candidates.

"It's my understanding that [Carey's] boss is bringing her as his guest," Forti told WND. "That's what he claims anyway. He has paid for two people."

Forti downplayed the significance of the pornographers' attendance at the event.

"There are going to be 6,000 people in the ballroom," he noted. "It's not like it's some kind of one-on-one dinner.

"They've paid their money. No matter what they do, the money is going to go to help elect Republicans to the House."

The fund-raising dinner will be held on the second day of a two-day event billed on the NRCC's website as "The 2005 President's Dinner and Salute to Freedom."

Kulkis' $5,000 check also affords Carey and him tickets to the Chairman's Luncheon June 14 and Welcome Reception June 13, as well as a tour of Washington, D.C. The luncheon features Rove and is hosted by NRCC Chairman Rep. Tom Reynolds, R- N.Y.

"I'm honored to be invited to this event," said Kulkis, who heads Kick A-- Pictures. "Republicans bill themselves as the pro-business party. Well, you won't find a group of people more pro-business than pornographers. We contributed over $10 billion to the national economy last year."

Kulkis is currently an honorary chairman on the NRCC's Business Advisory Council, a roundtable of millionaire business entrepreneurs who advocate a robust "pro-business agenda."

Last month, Carey, whose real name is Mary Cook, was among five people arrested at a new strip club in a suburb of Tacoma, Wash.

All were accused of violating the local adult-cabaret ordinance, some by getting too close to customers and others – including Carey – by touching themselves in a sexual manner, according to the Associated Press.

Columnist Joshua Frank, writing on dissidentvoice.org, hammered Bush and the GOP for pushing family values while taking money from pornographers.

Wrote Frank: "Oh my. This Bush administration is something else. On one hand they are all about 'family values' and Jesus. On the other they are all about raising mad loot so they can maintain control of Washington. It's not their conservative principles that really matter; it's all about the cashola and the power it buys. And Bush's new dining partners have very deep pockets."

"Politics is the second oldest profession, and it bears a striking resemblance to the first." - Ronald Reagan

Hillary Clinton gets $850G from a convicted felon with ties to the ChiComs, and Ron Paul gets an endorsement from a NV Brothel owner?>!?? Will there be more outrage over a legitimate, (legal by state law), businessman, (although in an unsavory business), endorsing an underdog Republican candidate, or a convicted felon filtering ILLEGAL campaign contributions to a top tier Democrat?

Try reading the rest of the article sometimes before tearing the ACL in your knee.

If voters in their respective states want to legalize prostitution, who cares?

Better than getting it from globalists and corporate transnationals as the other candidates are.

Mitt Romney failed, for the nine years he was on the board at Marriott, to take action against the porn movies available via pay-per-view on the hotel chain’s televisions.

“Funny money”

The 20.00 “funny money” coin is getting about 200 to as high as 400 dollars a coin. Nice ROI.

Collectors are buying them up.

I know the story.

Those that purchased the coins before the raid have been selling them and collectors were purchasing them as well. SO, hence my comment.

“Paul’s agenda”

Some of his “agenda” gives cause for concern. It’s not the 1700’s any more.

Exactly!

Return these moral issues back to the states and cities, and get the Federal government out.

First of all grow up. Second I said nothing in reference to the Bill of Rights, thirdly, I was thinking more along the lines of realizing that the world has come about to what it is and holding to the 1700’s way of thinking won’t solve any problems. Clear enough?

The Bill of Rights was written and ratified in the 1700's - the product of a "1700's way of thinking".

If you think your words are being twisted, try using some with a little more substance, instead of ephemeral truisms that bend whichever way a gentle breeze might blow.

Well, selling sex is legal there. He’s just a businessman giving the people what they want and meeting the market demand.

It’s outlawed everywhere else, you know, because Second Hand Sex (SHS) is so dangerous.

I wonder if you can refuse your whore to smoke in bed afterwards if you’re at her place.

Unless otherwise specified, I wouldn’t think that would be a violation of a contractual agreement and the guy would be out of luck. :)

From the photo, it appears that the coin is made of silver, which has value on the market.
