Wade Lieseke Biography

Former Sheriff of Nye County, Nevada
Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"

“I’ve been here 20 years and we’ve never had any kind of problems with the brothels… Now, if we outlaw it, that’s going to create a lot of work because I can guarantee you once you outlaw it, it will become an illegal activity.”
