Dead brothel owner Dennis Hof wins Nevada election

Brothel owner Dennis Hof posthumously wins Nevada assembly seat

Dennis Hof was a Nevada local businessman who owned The Love Ranch, a popular brothel.

Hof had spent the four previous days partying with notables from the sex industry and political world celebrating his 72nd birthday.

Mr Muth was one of many who predicted last month that Mr Hof would win, stating Republicans had a two-to-one advantage over Democrats in the state assembly district in terms of voter registration.

Democrat Lesia Romanov was left with no living Republican opposition in the race for Nevada's 36th Assembly District - but lost.

"He died quietly in his sleep", Hof's campaign manager Chuck Muth said at one of the brothels he operated in Crystal, Nevada.

The 72-year-old owned a number of brothels in Nevada, starred in the HBO adult reality series "Cathouse" and wrote a book titled "The Art of the Pimp".

Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite BunnyRanch legal brothel, has won his race for the Nevada state legislature, despite his death last month.

"He was discovered by longtime friend Ron Jeremy - who went to his room to wake him for a scheduled lunch at the Pahrump Senior Center - around 11am".

Around 20 brothels operate in Nevada - the only U.S. state where prostitution is legal. The brothel is where National Basketball Association player Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015. They're banned in the counties that contain Las Vegas and Reno. "In Assembly District 36, nearly 64 percent of the population resides in Nye County, about 34 percent lives in Clark County, and about 3 percent resides in Lincoln County".

On his campaign website, Hof had stated: "If you want higher taxes and the cradle-to-grave big government socialism, vote for my opponent".

Bonus link: ReasonTV interviewed Hof back in 2014 on prostitution, libertarianism, and more. This summer, he ousted an incumbent Republican lawmaker in a primary election, celebrating at an election night party with "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss.

But much of Nevada's establishment GOP shunned him. He said this was the best year ever.

This was despite (or perhaps because of) posters at voting stations stating Hof had died.
