RENO, Nev. (November 19, 2012)-Lance Gilman, the owner of a Nevada brothel recently elected as a county commissioner, says he faced few objections during his campaign.

Gilman told The Associated Press that to many voters in Storey County his Mustang Ranch is just a business and a prosperous one at that.

Gilman, 68, describes himself as a "dye-in-the-wool Republican who loves American values.

Nevada historian Guy Rocha says Gilman is the first such owner to win election to public office in Nevada since prostitution was legalized here in 1971.

Today, some two-dozen brothels legally operate in 10 of Nevada's 17 counties.

Prostitution is illegal in the counties that include Las Vegas and Reno, the state's population centers.

    So, he owns a legal business...

    What's the problem?

    Yes. Selling sex isn't bad. Sex is a natural act. Also, why should the fact that he provides a service keep him from serving in an elected position?
