Mustang Ranch: Nevada brothel owner elected county commissioner
By John M. Glionna

LAS VEGAS — When it comes to electing politicians, seems like Nevada voters like to keep an open mind.

Just ask Lance Gilman.

The owner of the infamous Mustang Ranch brothel recently became the first of his kind to win election to public office in Nevada since prostitution was legalized here in 1971. He won a seat as a Storey County commissioner by a wide margin. And he's believed to be the first to do so in the state's 148-year history.

Fact is, voters didn’t blink when casting their ballots for a proprietor of the world’s oldest profession.
