Now, at the end of his career, he wants to conquer one of the industry's biggest barriers: A state law that prohibits brothels in Clark and Washoe counties. Can he do it? Would it be good for the county? Or for state coffers? We'll talk to Flint, an expert on brothels and a political observer about the possible pitfalls.
