Lance Gilman is a thriving businessman with dozens of employees. That those workers include a good many prostitutes didn't faze the people of a rural Nevada county that recently elected him as a Storey County commissioner by a wide margin.
"To 99 percent of the voters, they view it as just a business," Mr. Gilman told The Associated Press. "It's a prosperous business that's helped the county."
"People want to focus on the brothel issue ... [but] I've had a wonderful 43-year record of business success that I bring to the commission," he said.
