RENO, Nev. -- It's not exactly your average Republican fundraiser.

A Nevada brothel owner is giving Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul his stamp of approval and plans to start raising money for the Texas congressman.

Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite BunnyRanch near Carson City, says he'll leave collection boxes outside the door so people can drop in their political contributions.

A spokesman for Paul says the politician with a libertarian streak doesn't condone prostitution on a personal level. But, he says, "it's not the role of federal government and it's not in the constitution for federal government to regulate these things."

TV host Tucker Carlson, who was trailing Paul for an article, says he's a good friend of Hof and -- in his words -- "decided to call him up and see if he wanted to come check this guy out."
