(Chuck Muth* | Pahrump Valley Times) – They say politics makes strange bedfellows, but this gives the phrase a whole new meaning!
Dennis Hof owns the Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Carson City – the flagship of seven legal brothels he owns in Nevada – along with dozens of other successful businesses. For those of you with HBO, you may have seen the reality show he starred in called “Cathouse.”
Anyway, the political “ladies (and men) of the evening” who work at that other Carson City brothel – the government-owned one known as the Nevada Legislature – gave taxpayers the royal shaft last year by passing the largest tax hike in state history.
That tax hike included the creation of a new business income tax, along with a new “Nevada IRS” to enforce paperwork compliance from businesses that don’t even owe the tax!
To put it mildly, this did not make Mr. Hof a happy camper – especially when you consider the truckloads of taxes he already pays. And RINO Assemblyman James Oscarson, who represents the district where two of Mr. Hof’s brothels are located, broke his word and voted for the hike.
So last March Hof filed to run against Oscarson, and a mutual friend recently suggested he and I meet to discuss his campaign.
