Sen. Harry Reid Calls for Prostitution Ban in Nevada

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(CARSON CITY, Nev.) -- Forget about creating jobs -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid wants to ban one. And not just any one -- the world’s oldest one. Reid told the Nevada Legislature on Tuesday that it’s time for the state to ban prostitution.

In a speech to a joint session of state lawmakers, Reid said, “Let’s have an adult conversation about an adult subject.”

“Nevada needs to be known as the first place for innovation and investment -- not as the last place where prostitution is still legal. When the nation thinks about Nevada, it should think about the world’s newest ideas and newest careers -- not about its oldest profession.”
“We should do everything we can to make sure the world holds Nevada in the same high regard you and I do. If we want to attract business to Nevada that puts people back to work, the time has come for us to outlaw prostitution.”
