Hookers for Hillary: meet the sex workers caucusing for Clinton in Nevada
Guardian (UK) - about 1 year
The working girls at a Nevada brothel launched a campaign to elect the first female president. ‘We’re helping Hillary and we’re helping ourselves. Women should help other women, right?’ Just days after Hillary Clinton launched her 2016 presidential campaign via online video – Everyday Americans want a champion, and I want to be that champion – some not-so-everyday Americans kicked off their own campaign in similar style. Hookers for Hillary was the brainchild of brothel owner Dennis Hof and the working girls at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, and it marked a hard left turn after Pimpin’ for Paul, the group’s 2008 and 2012 efforts to propel libertarian Ron Paul into the White House.

    More Details Hide Details In contrast to other Nevada brothel owners, members of the Nevada Brothel Owners' Association, who prefer to keep a low profile, Hof, despite Nevada laws which ban brothel advertising, maintains a high profile to create publicity for his brothels. He also operates a website and the "working girls" are encouraged to cultivate online relationships with potential, and past, clients. He often appears on talk shows, employs adult film stars, e.g., Sunset Thomas. He has also given free offers to returning soldiers. In early 2009, due to the recession, State Sen. Bob Coffin (D) had proposed legalizing prostitution statewide for tax purposes. Hof was prominently featured in a number of media reports saying he would expand into Las Vegas given the opportunity, and was already eying some closed casinos as property. However, the Nevada lawmakers had refused to consider the proposal of statewide legal prostitution during that legislative session.
