While the sex workers at his world famous “Moonlite Bunny Ranch” legal brothel in Carson City, Nevada have banded together behind the campaign of Democratic Party Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton as “Hookers 4 Hillary,” Dennis Hof is running for public office as a Libertarian.

Via The Las Vegas Review-Journal:

Hof spokesman Richard Hunter championed the brothel businessman as an advocate for making vice legal, calling prohibition efforts a refusal by the government to create regulations on activities that will occur anyway and only lead to crime without rules in place.

“The only people who appreciate alcohol or prostitution being illegal are politicians and drug dealers,” Hunter said.

Hunter said Hof frequently drives among his brothels in northern and southern Nevada and as a result is aware of how much of Nevada is government-controlled land. Hof wants to return public lands to private citizens, Hunter said.

Hof said he chose the Libertarian Party after being introduced to Libertarianism by John Stossel. He was originally considering a bid for the U.S. Senate, but decided against being beholden to special interests for money.

You just can’t get the $5 million to 10 million without whoring yourself out and I’m not going to do that,” he said. “There’s a lot of people willing to give me money, but there’s a payback. I’m not going to compromise my principles.

A brothel owner with principles? He’s no where near sleazy enough to be a politician.
