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.

Congressman Ron Paul is an honest, straight talking gentleman who is the ONLY candidate who not only believes in, but upholds, our US Constitution! I am 100% positive that I am voting for Ron Paul in the primaries! A handful of misguided people seem to think that this means I am "throwing away" my vote. Wrong. My vote for Ron Paul means a vote for America, for upholding our Constitution and for securing my daughter's future. A vote for a good man like Dr Ron Paul means a big EFF YOU to all the rest of those lying POS politicians shoving their lies and horrific political agendas down our throats. Ron Paul is a man of his word and is the only candidate who honors the promises he makes to his constituents, and we have a 10 term congressional record to prove it! That is why Ron Paul has MORE donations form our American Troops than any other candidate. Our Troops know what's up! Oh, and Ron Paul never takes donations from big business corporations or lobbying groups, so that he is never beholden to those despicable entities. He stands for US, the everyday American citizen. Get to know Ron Paul because this upcoming election will make or break America... and shouldn't we all find out as much about every candidate out there in order to make an informed decision? Wikipedia Ron Paul and the go to http://RonPaul2008.com and join us in taking back our country!

You people who are calling Ron Paul crazy should really do some research, just go to his website and look at the issues.

#58 it would destroy what you want as America (let me guess, Hillary or Obama?), but what you say is America is not what it was founded as.

I don't agree with Paul on every aspect of every issue, and I have nothing in common with him personally , but he is still what this country needs to survive and prosper.

I fail to understand why state's rights would be a bad thing. It would be a solution for so many issues. If you want medicinal pot, go to that state, if you want a legal abortion, go to that state, if you want gay marriage, there will be a state for that. If you don't, there will be states that are anti-everything as well.

Ron Paul is the only candidate I have ever sent $ to, and I will continue to do so. I do whatever I can to support him.

If you really read his stand on the issues and are appalled, then you are probably a Clintonite...you had your chance and it ended with a bj in the oval office, or maybe you are a neo-con, you had your chance and look at the mess we are in.

It's time for a real change.

Seriously    

You mean those are REAL LIVE prostitutes?!?! Only 3/8 look to be under the age of 45! Is that desparation when a woman allows herself to be pimped out, as she is pushing the over-the-hill marker?

OBVIOUSLY, he will NOT be taken anymore seriously than Mary Carey was - he as BIMBO-BROKER for goodness sake! Nobody takes Bimbo-Brokers or Bimbo's seriously! Nice portrait though. Bet their family's are proud!

I wonder if many people know that both, yes both, St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Ausgustine agreed that human nature being what it is that prostitution was better, as Aquinas has it, than the "deflowering of virgins and the cultivation of unnatural vices". As to the first: hey, better the young fellow your daughter dates has, as we say, had his ashed hauled rather than trying to get into her pants. As to the second point: well, depends what you call "unnatural vices" -- I wonder if the child predators would be a little less active if they actually had a bit of natural sex available? See St. Thomas's SUMMA THEOLOGICA, 2, 2a.

There's a poll on the GoToTheDoghouse website asking if you even know who Ron Paul is. The funny thing is that almost 30% of the voters "don't know" if they know!! How silly is that?!

In the time that it took you to read the article, Paul's robots have posted tens of thousands of votes in some meaningless Net survey.

Ron Paul made the decision to cast his lot with the republican side of this election because his beliefs & ideology falls nearer the conservative side than the democrats!! He favors the republicans for their stance on protecting their members when proven to be perverts & pedophiles!
We will have a democrat in the Whitehouse in '08. We will take back our country and see that it is protecting the common citizen. Our president will not exist solely to be a puppet of the wealthy and have as it's goal to increase the wealth of the rich! Our industries will be bound to protect us from air pollution. We will recieve a decent wage for an honest days labor!!
AND~~~~EVERY PERSON, (MAN, WOMAN OR CHILD), WILL BE PROTECT BY A HEALTHCARE SYSTEM!
RON PAUL, MY FOOT~!!!

I heard Ron Paul respond to the idea of being supported by this group of young women. Ron Paul stated that he" believes in freedom and it is not his business what people do with their freedom." I will add that as long as what they do, does not harm the life, liberty or property of another. I suggest these young ladies look at recent legislation Ron Paul is trying to pass. It is a Bill to intended to stop the collection of Income Tax on tips. I believe that the philosophical idea of "Liberty " promotes a "big tent" voter base. Not being a prude, I say welcome to the Revolution ladies and gents!
