Republican customers were not thrilled with the “Hookers for Hillary” campaign at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, the legal Nevada brothel in which prostitutes have endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton for president.

Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof says politics has been a hot topic with the brothel’s clientele since the endorsement last month with lots of feedback – “some good, some bad.”

“But the girls are good at relaxing them and say, ‘Let’s take our clothes off and put politics aside,'” Hof said in an email.

At www.hookersforhillary.com, the sex workers say they like Clinton’s foreign policy experience as secretary of state and they believe her approach to the economy will be good for Bunny Ranch customers. Hof says his workforce takes full advantage of Obamacare and that Clinton is likely to preserve it while Republicans want to repeal it.┬áIn addition, Hof says the women like the idea of Bill Clinton as first gentleman.

The Bunny Ranch prostitutes, seen on the HBO reality series “Cathouse,” endorsed Ron Paul in the past two presidential elections.

Have drug dealers made an endorsement yet?

At least sex workers provide an actual service for their money. No one is quite sure what Mitt Romney does for money.

It’s not fair that they’re supporting Hillary, because, after all, Republicans are their best customers and leave their tips behind.
