Dead brothel owner wins Nevada Assembly seat

Deceased Republican Brothel Owner Dennis Hof Elected To Nevada Assembly

A Republican, Dennis Hof, has won an election to Nevada's State Assembly three weeks after his death in the United State.

Steve Marcus/REUTERS/NewscomVoters in Nevada's Assembly District 36 must have really not liked the Democrat. According to state law, county officials will now appoint a fellow Republican who also resides in the district to take Hof's seat.

"I'm riding the Trump wave", Hof told CNN in June as he explained how an owner of legal brothels could win elections. And as tragic as his death was, Hof campaign manager Chuck Muth previously indicated his boss's passing might actually help his electoral chances.

"They will feel much more comfortable casting the ballot for him knowing there will be another Republican to replace him", he added.

Hof died at age 72 less than a month ago at the Love Ranch South in Crystal.

Hof, the self-described "Trump of Pahrump", was accused of rape and sexual assault by two of his former employees, according to the Review-Journal, citing a police report and interviews with the women. The day before his death, he had enjoyed a rally and birthday party that was attended by, amongst others, famous porn star Ron Jeremy.

When Hof died, it was already too late to remove his name from the ballot, and ballots had already been printed and mailed.

Dennis Hof died last month after fashioning himself as a Donald Trump-style Republican candidate. "People will set aside for a moment their moral beliefs, their religious beliefs, to get somebody that is honest in office".

Hof was running for a seat in the Nevada state assembly as a pro-Trump Republican.

Initial estimates suggested the deceased Hof won almost 70% of the vote.

The thrice-divorced author of The Art of the Pimp, who appeared on HBO's Cathouse, owned a strip club and five legal brothels in Nevada, the only U.S. state with legalised prostitution.
