From www.lasvegassun.com- Chicken Ranch brothel owner Kenneth Green today detailed plans for his new company, Regulated Management LLC, which he said would expose illegal prostitution in Las Vegas and lead a public effort to demand government deal with the problem.
The company also unveiled a Web site on the effort, www.regulatedmanagement.com. Green noted he has a financial interest in a crackdown on the illegal sex trade since his legal brothel is 60 miles away in Nye County.
“I have a vested interest and that’s why I’m stepping forward,’’ he said.
He said it’s frustrating that in one sense, Nevada “gets it,” as it has a system of legal, regulated brothels in rural counties. Yet in the most populous counties, Clark and Washoe — home to Las Vegas and Reno — it’s illegal.
But asked if one of the goals of the business is having prostitution legalized in Clark and Washoe counties, Green said: “That’s not my job. That’s the Legislature’s job.”
Regulated Management says the illegal sex trade in Las Vegas is a multibillion dollar, untaxed and unregulated industry that is an embarrassment to the community with residents and tourists exposed to the likes of “Hot Babes Direct to Your Room” advertising, smut racks and the aggressive passing out of sex industry business cards to pedestrians on the Las Vegas Strip.
“What is most frustrating is that everyone acknowledges its existence, but all too many turn a ‘blind eye’ to it and fail to take action,” Green said.
