Bill O'Donnell, former Nevada state senator (R-Las Vegas), was quoted by Alexa Albert in Brothel (2001) as having said:

“It bothers me that we’re [Nevada] making money off the backs of women. Condoning prostitution is the most demeaning and degrading thing that the state can do to women. What we do as a state is essentially put a U.S.-grade stamp on the butt of every prostitute. Instead, we should be turning them around by helping them get back into society.”
