Bunny Ranch Owner Endorses Former Prostitute For Mayor Of Vicksburg, Mississippi

Carson City, Nev., April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bunny Ranch brothel owner Dennis Hof has a very special reason for endorsing Linda Fondren for mayor of Vicksburg, Mississippi.  Why is he getting involved with a local election on the opposite side of the country?  It's because Linda Fondren and her husband Jim not only owned and operated The Sagebrush Ranch (a Nevada brothel that is located next to Hofs), but before that she was a working prostitute at Hof's brothel who met her husband when he was her client.  While some might think that this history would disqualify her candidacy, Hof sees it as quite the opposite.  

"Our girls go on to careers in medicine, law, and education, and they fund those educations with the money that they earn here at The Bunny Ranch" says Hof.  "I couldn't be prouder of their accomplishments, and I sincerely believe that Linda Fondren's time working as a legal prostitute in Nevada has given her the necessary business acumen to be a very successful mayor."

Hof is offering to join Fondren on the campaign trail, and he's even willing to travel to Mississippi to appear with her in person and help raise money for her campaign.  While enthusiastic about her candidacy, he laments that the social stigma of the world's oldest profession, even when it's legal, has prevented Fondren from previously disclosing this information about her past.  "What she did here was legal, safe, and well regulated.  Nevada sets a progressive social example for the rest of the country by legalizing prostitution, and as the poorest state in the nation, Mississippi would be well advised to follow Nevada's lead and stimulate their economy in the process."

Hof hopes that a mayoral term could in fact lead to state wide office for Fondren, perhaps as a congresswoman or governor, where she could draw on her past as a legal prostitute to advocate for Mississippi becoming the second state in the nation to legalize the brothel industry.

Dennis Hof is available for interviews to discuss his endorsement of Linda Fondren's candidacy as well as his knowledge of her background in legal prostitution.  He can be contacted at (775) 720-9090 and at dennis@bunnyranch.com
