>>Blitzer: Some Prostitutes in Nevada are
enthusiastic backing Ron Paul for President. CNN’s Senior Medical Correspondent Elizabeth
Cohen shows us why.>>Cohen: Ron Paul has met alot of his supporters,
but he probably hasn’t met these women, and they love him.>>Hof: If a client comes into the Bunny Ranch
and says I’m pimping for Paul, they’re gonna have a real good time. Aren’t they girls?>>Workers: YES!>>Cohen: Dennis Hof owns The Bunny Ranch
and if the Presidential Election were held today there’s no question who would win here.
The prostitutes at this legal brothel have a pimping for Paul campaign because Paul supports
their right to make their living this way.>>Ron Paul: Yes, you have a right to do this
that are very controversial.>>Cohen: Prostitution is legal in sixteen
counties in Nevada. Prostitutes, they prefer the term working girls, say this helps protect
their health. First they have the right to reject any customer they don’t like. So you
bring a gentlemen in here and you do an inspection of some kind? What are you looking for?>>Working Girl: We ask him to drop his pants.>>Cohen: They are looking for some signs
of sexual transmitted diseases.>>Working Girl: and at that point you know
you say there Honey there a little something here I’m concerned about, I don’t know if
it would be in both of our best interests to party here today. Why don’t you go to a
doctor and get that checked out.>>Cohen: Second, every customer has to use
a condom. Every time, by law. So, if a guy says to you, “Hey, couple hundred bucks if
i don’t have to use one of these, what do you say to them?>>Working Girl: No. Its alright. I mean even
if its thousands and thousands of dollars I still look at my health that’s involved.
I don’t know where this guy has been.>>Cohen: And thirdly, the working girls get
checked regularly for sexually transmitted diseases.>>Nurse: See you in a week.>>Working Girl: Alright doll.>>Cohen: The Nevada Department of Epidemiology
says in more than thirty years there’s never been a single case of HIV among legal prostitutes
in Nevada. But their jobs have come under attack from Federal officials.>>Senator: The time has come to outlaw prostitution>>Cohen: The working girls want to keep the
Federal government out of their business. So, They are asking customers to donate to
Paul’s campaign on their way out the door. In two days, they raised five-hundred eighty-two
dollars and they are pimping for more. The owner of the Bunny Ranch tells us that he
tried to donate that money directly to the campaign, but folks at the campaign told him,
No, we don’t want it directly, please give it to a PAC that supports Ron Paul instead.
We reached out to the Ron Paul campaign and Wolf we did not get a response. Wolf.>>Blitzer: Elizabeth Cohen, thank you.
