PAHRUMP, Nev. (AP) — A state marketed as a place where people can indulge in all manner of sins is confronting its status as the only place in America where you can legally pay someone for sex.

A coalition of religious groups and anti-sex trafficking activists has launched referendums to ban brothels in two of the seven Nevada counties where they’re legally operating. The push to outlaw the industry dovetails with a campaign by the state’s most famous pimp for a seat in the state Legislature.

Nevada, according to brothel owner Dennis Hof, was built “on gaming, liquor, girls and mining.”
