Who To Believe?

Northern Nevada will soon be home of a $5,000,000,000 battery plant for Telsa electric cars.
Whether this good or not for Nevada, I honestly don't know.  Nevada is giving about $1,400,000,000 in tax breaks.
But what is funny is that 2 people are trying to get credit for getting the plant to Nevada: a brothel owner and Slutty/Senile/Liar/Coward/ Harry Reid.
From the Reno Journal Gazette: There are two ways to look at Lance Gilman of Storey County, Nev., the businessman whose industrial center is set to house Tesla's massive gigafactory.
To some, he is a major player when it comes to economic development in Nevada, a state that is still clawing its way out of a recession. To others, Gilman is also seen as a flesh peddler — he's owner of the famous Mustang Ranch brothel, legally operated in Storey County just east of Reno.
Gilman is the principal and director of the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center, billed as the largest industrial park in the world. As Storey County Manager Pat Whitten put it, Gilman is "the lead economic engine for Northern Nevada."
Besides Tesla, he's lured major companies to his park, which has become a cash cow of tiny Storey County. The park is located just outside the county limits of the Reno-Sparks metropolitan area and includes companies such as Kal-Kan, Wal-Mart, Dell Computers and Toys R Us. The industrial park is next to coast-to-coast interstate highway and rail systems, so it sells itself. Yet Gilman closes the deals.
He is also an integral part of the negotiations to bring Tesla Motors' $5 billion gigifactory project to the industrial park he represents.
Meanwhile, Gilman got into the brothel business about a decade ago with his Wild Horse Canyon Ranch brothel. He later bought the Mustang Ranch, which was previously owned by the notorious Joe Conforte — who escaped to Brazil to avoid federal prosecution for tax evasion.
And from the LVRJ:
In a speech in Las Vegas today, Sen. Harry Reid hailed Tesla’s decision to build a $5 billion battery factory in Nevada, and he suggested that his annual National Clean Energy Summit may have had something to do with it.
“This is great news for Nevada, but it did not happen by accident,” the Nevada Democrat said during his opening remarks at this year’s summit at Mandalay Bay. “This is a perfect example of the partnerships between private industry and government forged here at the Clean Energy Summit.”
Reid went on to note that Tesla CEO Elon Musk was the keynote speaker at the summit in 2012, when he spoke about “the importance of innovation and investment in clean energy.”
“Now he is putting his words into action by announcing this critical investment in Nevada,” Reid said.
Reid spokeswoman Kristen Orthman said the Senate Majority Leader played a role behind the scenes to bring Tesla together with state officials.
The Tesla deal drew a round of applause when Reid mentioned it as he opened the seventh annual summit.
So, who to believe?
A brothel owner and business man who Reid hates?
Senile/Liar/Coward Harry Reid.
I'll take the brothel owner.
He has the moral high ground compared to Reid.
