Guess who supports Nevada's proposed sin tax?

Hookers and the owners of the state's legal brothels.

Deanne "Air Force Amy" Salinger is one of the ladies of the evening to testify in support of the proposal.

She told state lawmakers she's all for a five buck per customer tax on her services.

Chloe Daniels is another legal prostitute speaking in favor of the measure.

She countered criticism by some that taxing sex services would be like governmental pimping.

She says she and her co-workers aren't forced to do anything they don't want to do.

Supporters of the hooker tax say it could raise $2 million a year for the cash-strapped state government.
