    This shit is too funny.

    Like I posted in another thread, I grew up in Elko.

    We used to go trick or treatin' at the brothels when we were kids. They always gave out soda pops or if they liked your costume, a roll of quarters.


    LAS VEGAS — One of Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson's top organizers in rural Nevada resigned Thursday after the campaign learned he had worked for a brothel and was wanted on a felony arrest warrant in California.

    "We did not know about all of this," Richardson spokesman Josh McNeil said after the staffer's record was brought to the campaign's attention by The Associated Press. "We accepted his resignation today."

    Kristian Forland, the campaign's eastern Nevada field director, is being sought by Los Angeles County authorities for failure to appear on four counts of writing bad checks. Forland also was arrested twice, once last year and again last month, in his home of Elko, Nev., on a similar bad check charge out of Las Vegas.

    In both arrests, Forland posted bail and was released. It's not clear from court records if the case was resolved.

    Forland also was investigated by Elko police after women working at Mona's Ranch, a legal brothel, complained he was shorting them on their pay. An investigator described Forland as "at best a manager of the property," according to a June 2006 police report obtained by the AP.

    No charges were filed.

    Forland said the bad check charges have come out of business transactions gone bad. Forland said he has hired a lawyer who is working to resolve the California case.

    Forland failed to appear in Los Angeles County Municipal Court on four counts of insufficient funds in January 1999, a felony.

    As for the brothel, Forland said he worked for a defunct investment group that briefly ran the bordello.

    "I oversaw the bookkeeping only," Forland said Thursday. "I never handled cash, I didn't deal with the girls per se."
