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.Brothels, which are illegal in the counties that contain Las Vegas and Reno, harken back to Nevada's days as a mining territory about 150 years ago.Outside of bordellos, prostitution remains illegal.Today, there are about 20 brothels operating in the state, mostly in rural areas.Oscarson said he was surprised to hear about the anti-brothel efforts and is not involved.He thinks it's time for the brothels to go away but said he has not signed an anti-brothel petition. Guinasso and others involved with the anti-brothel campaign say that many women in the brothels aren't there by choice – they may have grown up in poverty, have a past history of being a victim of sexual abuse or were sent to work in a brothel by an illegal pimp.
