Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) wants to impose penalties on pimps who don?t file W-2 forms for their prostitutes. But “Daily Show” correspondent Dan Bakkedahl asks, ?Instead of a tax on pimps, why not a rebate on hoes??

Partial transcript:

Dan Bakkedahl: Congressman Jack Kingston would like you to believe he’s all for core conservative values?

And you might buy that until you look at his latest piece of legislation.

Rep. Jack Kingston: If you’re a pimp, and you have 10 women working for you, and you don’t file 10 W-2 forms, you’re in violation of the law. The idea behind this is: here’s one more way to nail a pimp

Bakkedahl: Now you said you?re against raising taxes, but you?re in favor of this pimp tax…Instead of a tax on pimps, why not a rebate on hoes?

Rep. Jack Kingston: I think the pimp would be our target.
