Republican Brothel Owner Who Employs 80 Prostitutes Wins Election as County Commissioner in Nevada

Brothel owner who employs 80 prostitutes wins election as county commissioner in Nevada... and he's a Republican

Lance Gilman is a thriving businessman with dozens of employees. That those workers include a good many prostitutes didn't faze the people of a rural Nevada county who recently elected him as a Storey County commissioner by a wide margin.

The Mustang Ranch brothel owner is the first such owner to win election to public office in Nevada since prostitution was legalized here in 1971, Nevada historian Guy Rocha said. And he's believed to be the first to do so in the state's 148-year history.

'He's in rare company,' Rocha said. 'Of course, it's going to be rare because the business of selling sex for money is illegal in every jurisdiction in the United States except in rural Nevada.'

Some two dozen brothels legally operate in 10 of Nevada's 17 counties. Prostitution is illegal in the counties that include Las Vegas and Reno, the state's population centers.

Gilman, 68, a self-described 'dye-in-the-wool Republican who loves American values,' said he encountered few objections to his Mustang Ranch ownership during his campaign in the county of 4,000. He won with 62 percent of the vote on November 6.

He is a married father of four with nine grandchildren. All but one of his children, including one of his daughters, work in the family business.

His claims that his bordello, located along Interstate 80 some 10 miles east of Reno, has contributed more than $5 million to the county's budget over the past decade. It has 44 full-time employees, and 30 to 80 working girls, depending on the season.

To 99 percent of the voters, they view it as just a business,' Gilman told The Associated Press. 'It's a prosperous business that's helped the county.'

Geez some people in here are just plain nuts and great at putting words into other people’s mouths.

According to you any idea you don’t agree with makes me a liberal or libertarian.

Get a friggin life.

Okay your faith in government.

Hoo boy.

BTW, Mary Magdalen was a prostitute.

Government is no solution for the Way.

If you think it is...well, give it a try.

The Truth is not found in government.

You will find it...but not there.

The words I put in your mouth originated with your liberal views on prostitution. If you hold that type of unconservative viewpoint, then naturally you are suspected of having other types of pro-liberal values.

Sorry you took offense, but admit it. In addition to being pro-whore, you are pro-dope as well.

Way to go. You have moved past your ignorance on morality in our laws and have double downed into your ignorance on morality and Christianity.

Is there anything else you would like to showcase your ignorance about?

>> Liberaltarians are the mortal enemy of traditional conservatism.

Not to be confused with libertarians.

Libertarianism opposes Statism. Conservatism opposes Leftism.

Nobody could be more anti-dope than me.

I have caught hell in here more than once for my stand against dope .

Some verysmart people get caught in the idea thatthey are too smart to get addicted. Far too many think they can enjoy recreational use of drugs and quit any time they like only to discover they are hooked.

Marijuana is a gateway drug, even cigarettes are a drug. I have never smoked either. I do feel some people are more prone to addiction than others, but there is no such thing as recereationaldrug use. Drugs are a crutch, one the weak needs. I don’t even like taking my High blood pressure medicine.

I have seen what illegal prostitution does to women on drugs. Most are workin to kjeep their pimp or drug dealers in money.I do not know if they test prostitutes in Nevada for drugs or not, but they should.If they are prostituting to support their habit then they should be stopped. I tried to find out on Google , but it wasn’t that easy to find.

Prostitution has existed since long before the time of Christ, many women who marry rich husbands for their money are no better than prostitutes,women who have sex to improve their job positions, or their political positions are prostitutes.Whoopi Goldberg admits to 7 abortions yet she never said she actually sold her services, is she a prostitute or a whore, or just a crazed loose woman that so many other women actually watch on television and appreciate her opinions.

There are many ways to prostitute ones body and many do it in one way or another.
