Harry Reid Calls For An End To Legal Prostitution In Nevada
Mint Press News ^ | 2/21/14 | Frederick Reese

Posted on 02/23/2014 12:24:33 PM PST by Libloather

In 2011, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D – Nev.) went before a joint session of the Nevada State Legislature to call for “an adult conversation” about prostitution in the state.

“Nevada needs to be known as the first place for innovation and investment – not as the last place where prostitution is still legal,” he said in a speech delivered to the Nevada Legislature.

“We should do everything we can to make sure the world holds Nevada in the same high regard you and I do,” Reid continued. “If we want to attract business to Nevada that puts people back to work, the time has come for us to outlaw prostitution.”

**SNIP**

However, Las Vegas is hoping to host the 2016 Republican National Convention. Reid, a supporter of the city’s bid, has argued that even though prostitution is a misdemeanor in Las Vegas, the state’s stance on prostitution could be an issue.

That’s weird, I would think this is something democrats would encourage. Especially since there is tax money to be made.

Maybe not, it depends if political whoring is legal or illegal.

The Congressional brothels will have monopoly
because they are the EXEMPT.

EXEMPT Reid schemes that nubile and minor non-Moslem
Americans will be eager to serve at Congressional brothels
because it will get their families out of ObamaCARE.

Reid is reported to have mob ties. Who wins by closing the legal brothels? The Casinos and the mob. Prostitution is illegal in Vegas. If John is looking for action and finds it is illegal statewide, the mob can just take over the business and run the escort services. John goes to the mob instead, and Reid will get his cut somewhere.

The world's oldest profession isn't going away anytime soon.

Want to get it banned there, Harry? Here’s how. Have someone apply for the required licensing to open a homosexual brothel. Then use that as a wedge to get all prostitution banned. What? They’d approve it? Ohhh...never mind!

HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it.

The only difference between Reid and a prostitute is that the prostitute is honest about what she’s doing to people.

Reid got a lot of campaign money from the Nevada whore business.

So Reid must be having problems raising funds, and this is a way to get them to pony up protection money. I know he is not up for reelection until 2016, so who is he trying to help?

Harry’s probably made a pact with the Russian Mafia to end “legal” prostitutuon so they can provide the services illegally for at least 4 times as much. In return he’ll probably receive large donations from the PAC they set up for him.
