A Nevada brothel has a message for anyone, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who thinks legalized prostitution in parts of Nevada will — or should — keep the 2016 Republican National Convention from convening in Las Vegas.
It’s time to reassess.
Earlier this week, Reid, Nevada’s top Democrat, told the Reno Gazette-Journal he supported bringing the 2016 GOP convention to Las Vegas. But, Reid said, Nevada’s laws allowing prostitution could present a roadblock for such an effort, even though prostitution is illegal in Las Vegas.
“There are people who don’t come to the state of Nevada for a number of reasons, like our education system and the image that we have,” Reid told the Reno newspaper. “And one of the (bad) images we have had, gambling, has long since passed as a negative. But prostitution hasn’t.”
