Nevada Republicans: Family values for brothels

| »

This new Public Policy Polling report just made my afternoon:

There's one thing Nevada voters across party lines can agree on: they love them some brothels. 64% think brothels should be legal to only 23% who think they should be illegal. The most striking thing in these numbers is that an equal 66% of Democrats and Republicans each think that brothels should be legal. In late March we found that only 20% of Nevada GOP voters supported gay marriage so that's an interesting take on family values there.

I suppose these religious-conservative moralists are just tired of being caught with their pants down illegally.

(Obligatory disclaimer: There’s nothing wrong with brothels, of course, so long as they’re properly regulated to prevent abuse. It’s just amusing – revealingly so – that the Party of Traditional ValuesTM would so come out so prominently in favor of the very “sexual immorality” they’re so busy harping about when they prevent marriage equality for LGBT folk.)
