The AP put out a story simply titled Paul Endorsed by Nevada Brothel Owner which began "Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, an underdog Texas congressman with a libertarian streak, has picked up an endorsement from a Nevada brothel owner," Dennis Hof.
The obvious suggestion here was that Ron Paul has been soliciting such endorsement. However, as mentioned and somewhat glossed over at the very end of the article, it was Tucker Carlson who contacted Hof to ask him to check out Ron Paul and arrived with him at Ron Paul's Reno news conference along with two of Hof's prostitutes. The media in attendance jumped on the opportunity to focus in on the ridiculous publicity stunt which had nothing to do with Ron Paul's campaign whatsoever.
It is clear that the provocative headline from the AP, which was also displayed during an MSNBC interview with Ron Paul himself, broadcast earlier today (see video below) was designed to give readers the impression that Ron Paul is the presidential candidate of pimps and prostitutes.
However, Ron Paul laughed off the pathetic smear attempt by sarcastically suggesting that he was going to have a meeting later on regarding the matter and that he hoped MSNBC wouldn't be bombarded with too many Ron Paul bumper stickers.
While Dr Paul stressed that he believes law-enforcement and moral issues should not be decided upon by the federal government, he expertly explained that personally he does not condone such activity.
This latest smear attempt again proves the fact that Ron Paul and his campaign message is untouchable as the establishment media continues to go after him by association.
