Dennis Hof on Defeating Harry Reid's Anti-Prostitution Crusade


"Harry [Reid] is an old Nevadan," says Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch brothel, famously featured on HBO's Cathouse."He grew up in the brothels of Searchlight, Nevada. He swam in the swimming pools. He ate off the money his mother earned off the working girls."

Reid fell out of Hof's good graces when he made a push in 2011 to outlaw Nevada's brothels. Hof met him with with swift and loud resistance that stopped the ban in its tracks.

"Harry Reid is going to have to take the keys to the Cathouse out of my cold, dead hands," he says, in this Reason TV excerpt.
