Dead brothel owner elected to legislative seat

Dead brothel owner elected to legislative seat

He said Mr Hof "died quietly in his sleep" at Love Ranch - one of the brothels he operated in Crystal, Nevada.

Weird though it may seem, Dennis Hof - who, as it happens, is also the owner of one of Nevada's most famous brothels - still won enough votes to be elected to the state legislature despite having been found dead on October 16.

The late Dennis Hof, a Donald Trump-style Republican candidate, defeated Democrat Lesia Romanov in the contest.

Under Nevada law, Republican county officials will appoint someone to serve the term in the Assembly to which Hof was elected.

Officials are still waiting to determine Hof's cause of death.

Hof was found dead at his Love Ranch brothel, located about an hour outside Las Vegas.

"They will feel much more comfortable casting the ballot for him, knowing there will be another Republican to replace him", he said shortly after the pimp's passing. Nye is one of 3 counties that make up Nevada's 36th district, which Dennis would've repped if he was alive.

Hof was accused of sexual assault at least four times, most recently in September. The day before his death, he had enjoyed a rally and birthday party that was attended by, amongst others, famous porn star Ron Jeremy. Odom entered a coma but survived.

Hof owned several brothels in Nevada, which is the only state that allows them to legally operate.

Hof ran for office in 2016 as a Libertarian but lost, and this year he ran as a Republican and earned backing from Trump associate Roger Stone and anti-tax-increase advocate Grover Norquist.

After Hof won the June nominating contest for the state Assembly seat, some evangelicals in his district said they had voted for him because they believed he would clean up politics and not be beholden to special-interest groups and their money.

During his campaign, he dubbed himself the "Trump from Pahrump" in reference to the town where he lived in Nevada.
