CARSON CITY, Nev., Jan. 4 (UPI) — This endorsement might leave some wondering: Prostitutes at a brothel near Carson City, Nev., endorsed Rep. Ron Paul’s bid for president.
Brothel owner Dennis Hof said he polled “all the girls” at the Bunny Ranch and the majority backed Paul, the U.S. representative from Texas who placed third in Tuesday’s Iowa caucuses, The Daily Caller Web site reported.
“We thought real closely about supporting [Newt] Gingrich — because he’s a cheater — and we like cheaters,” said Hof, who gained celebrity status thanks to HBO’s “Cathouse” documentary and series featuring his business. Nevada allows counties to license brothels.
A lot of the women supported Barack Obama in 2008, but then he signed a bill allowing for human consumption of wild horses and “the girls don’t want any part of Obama,” Hof said.
Hof said the ranch “decided to go with the guy that’s more about state’s rights — and that’s Ron Paul.”
During January, he said he was offering a special — two bunnies for the price of one, the Web site said. All a client has to do is come by and say “I’m pimping for Paul.”
