A Mississippi mayoral candidate admitted this week that she once worked as a prostitute and owned a brothel.
Linda Fondren, who’s running for mayor of Vicksburg, at first told a reporter that her ties to Sagebrush Ranch, a legally operated brothel in Nevada that she owned with her husband 30 years ago, were rumors. She finally admitted her involvement, however, United Press International reported. She said she and her husband sold the brothel in 1992.
“I am who I am,” she said, UPI reported. “This is my story. It is what makes me who I am.”
