Attention Whore Slams Real Whores

Okay, I'm resurrecting an old story here, but it amused me when I discovered it last weekend. My bad, mea cooper, oops, Baby.

It seems that Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) gave a speech in his home state asking for the outlawing of prostitution. 

"The time has come for us to outlaw prostitution,” Reid said in his biennial address to the Nevada legislature and an audience that included a legal brothel owner, legal prostitutes and the legal industry’s state lobbyist.
 
Reid paused at that point, one of the few times he did so in a half-hour speech he otherwise seemed to rush through. No one applauded.

The whorehouse owner in attendance, Dennis Hof of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, told reporters on the scene: “Harry Reid will have to pry the cathouse keys from my cold, dead hands."

In Nevada, the regulation of prostitution is considered a local issue, and no legislation was offered to outlaw brothels.

 What a place!  Legal prostitutes, legal brothels, and lobbyists to go with them.  And hanging out at the Nevade legislature.  Makes the Tennessee General Assembly seem tame by comparison.  But was Harry Reid just going through the motions, or did he completely misread poltical sentiments within the state legislature?

Or was it that the legislators understood the concept of 'birds of a feather flock together'?

  1. Legislators are whores, that's a given. But it seems that the good senator should have respected the sister whores more.

  2. I think Harry could get himself shot in that wild west state.

  3. At one time, the legal brothel in one of the counties accounted for about 25% of the revenues to underwrite local government. They considered it to be a cash cow.

  4. Harry Reid is slightly a douche.

  5. I remember hearing somewhere that prostitution is the world's oldest profession, and differs from politics only in terms of the number of amateurs that take part in it. QED.

  6. I'm surprised that he made a speech while being clueless as to its reception.
