FILE - In this Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2011 file photo, Moonlite Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof, foreground second right, and other brothel representatives wait for U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to speak to a joint session of the state Legislature in Carson City, Nev. Hof says business has boomed even during the recession, thanks in part to publicity from an HBO series about the enterprise. Keen on politics, Hof has surveyed his customers - he says 60 percent are Democrat, 40 percent Republican, "but the Republicans spend more." This year, he's leaning toward Romney for his business background. "I like the fact that this guy has looked at budgets, made hard cuts," Hof said. "Obama doesn't have a clue about business - he wouldn't know how to run the Bunny Ranch. Romney would." Standing, from left are Jeff Arnold and George Flint with the Nevada Brothel Owners Association, and seated from left are Bunny Love, Brooke Taylor, Hof and an unidentified brothel worker.
