I’m going to side with Seton Motley on Reid wanting to outlaw Nevada prostitution — ol’ Harry just doesn’t want the competition, even if it is merely metaphorical (politics differs greatly in that its practitioners pay for favors with somebody else’s money and full consent of all involved parties isn’t required).

In any case, Reid’s clarion call to make prostitution illegal in the entire state of Nevada wasn’t warmly received (click “play” at the end of Harry’s quote for full effect):

There’s been quite a buzz about Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s call to get rid of legalized prostitution in Nevada as a way to attract more businesses to his home state.

The story is a talker on cable networks and the blogosphere. But as the Las Vegas Sun reports today, there was dead silence on Tuesday in the Nevada Legislature at the moment one of Washington’s most powerful Democrats said: “The time has come for us to outlaw prostitution.” [click "play"]

I thought Reid might have a higher opinion of the industry since most of the brothel workers in the state are light skinned with no hooker dialect. Don’t worry, Harry, they’re not working your corner — they can’t afford to.

Here’s a KSNV story about local reaction to Reid urging the legislature to end Nevada prostitution. One thing is clear: some of the people in the brothel industry have a better grip on economics than Reid and his cronies in DC:
