Pimp and Pros Pitch Paul for Prez

12/5/2007 5:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hillary and Obama might court the unions and the NEA for their endorsement, Romney and Rudy the NRA and the Christian right, but only one candidate is truly getting whored-out in his campaign for president.
Ron Paul and prostitutes
That, of course, is Ron Paul, the Libertarian GOP hopeful (and prohibitive underdog), who has procured the ass-istance of perhaps the most famous legal brothel in the world -- Northern Nevada's BunnyRanch -- and its proprietor, Dennis Hof. In fact, TMZ has obtained an appeal from Hof to American voters, which Hof hopes will, as he puts it, "lubricate Ron Paul's path to the White House."

Unfortunately, Paul isn't on board with the program, because when we called his campaign manager to ask about the pimp support, he didn't sound too happy about it.

Mark Elam says that Congressman Paul "didn't solicit" Hof and his hoes -- certainly not their business, nor their political support. He tells us that, to his knowledge, Hof and Rep. Paul haven't met, nor does Paul sanction any form of prostitution.

As the libertarian-leaning candidate, Paul has been vocal in his support of states' rights, which, naturally, are amenable to the BunnyRanch and its business. Still, Paul is also strongly pro-life.

"go ahead throw away your vote"

This is like *the* most manipulative statement, and I truly HATE it!

Ron Paul does have a chance to get elected, but he would only keep the Federal Gov out of your private affairs, it'd be up to the state to decide on prostitution. Yep, everybody who really loves freedom loves Ron Paul, so it brings out a lot of groups -- even the pimps and hoes, internet lovers, potheads, those weird people who hate taxes, whackos who don't think we need a Federal Dept. of Education, nuts who don't want a Nat'l ID. And those crazy Military have donated more to Ron Paul than any other candidate. Go figure.

The Bunny Ranch is NOT in Las Vegas. These establishments are not allowed in Las Vegas. Some in Pahrump, yes, but the Bunny Ranch is outside Reno in CARSON CITY. Not even CLOSE to Las Vegas. Do a tiny bit of research instead of just assuming all whores flock to Vegas.

Damn, look at the "women" in that photo....is THAT what men are paying to sleep with?
Other than the one in the hot pink they all look like they've been around the block - being dragged by a pickup truck - waaaaaay too many times.

One of the greatest Americans to have lived was a man named Horace
Greeley. He was a Liberal Republican. In the mid to late 19th century. He was involved in the Republican reformation in opposition to corruption within the Grant administration.

Originally Greely was the "Chief" of the New York Tribune. A brilliant writer. He greatly influenced Lincoln in his abolition of slavery. He never made it to office but
he bridged the gap between the Democrats and the Republican parties.
Of the many things I admire about him, two stand out - Utopia fascinated him and believed in a God of Mercy not vengeance. I'm the same.

Darn shame there's no Horace Greeley's in this election.

Why do fat, butt-ugly women think all they have to do is get fake boobs and they will miraculously become sexy and beautiful? What a bunch of dogs.

Ron Paul is running as a Republican -- but don't let that hinder you from checking into him....there are only 3 candidates that dont' take corporate sponsorship or lobby money, ROn Paul, Dennis Kuccinich and Mike Gravel. Ron Paul is HOPE FOR AMERICA! Seriously, look into him.

My quote is directly from the Simpsons Halloween episode where Kudos & Kang pose as Clinton and Dole. When the good citizens of Springfield said they would vote for Perot, Kudos says "Go ahead, throw away your vote." It was hilarious then and it is hilarious now!

....well EVERYONE KNOWS once you get the hooker consortium going you pretty much have the election wrapped up...it's just a matter of time. Hookers control EVERYTHING these days and I'd like to hear the candidates talk more about it in a town square meeting environment with children and families present. I think that would be just as rational as half the ideas Ron Paul ALREADY HAS.

The American people need to pay attention to Ron Paul. He doesn't represent the interests of big corporations like the other candidates - he represents the people, the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Here's the best Ron Paul site for your information:

Don't wait for the media to inform you about Ron Paul because they won't - they're owned by the same big corporate interests that want to continue the war in Iraq and continue to tax you to the max.
