If politics make strange bedfellows, Nevada’s Saturday Democratic caucuses are no exception.

A group of the state’s legal prostitutes has endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, largely on the strength of her support for the Affordable Care Act.

The group of 500 sex workers — Hookers 4 Hillary — was launched by Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, located outside the state capital of Carson City, Nevada.

Mr. Hof told Latinpost.com that more than 500 of the brothel’s workers gained access to health insurance after the Affordable Care Act was enacted.

“Before the Affordable Care Act, a working girl could not get insurance because they were grouped in the same category as illegal prostitutes who had diseases or used illegal drugs,” Mr. Hof told the publication. “Now they can get insurance, and Hillary will help them keep it.”
