Brothel owner Dennis Hof wins seat in Nevada despite being dead

Adjust Comment Print

A dead brothel owner has won a seat in the Nevada state assembly at the U.S. midterm elections.

Hof - who beat Democrat Lesia Romanov - will be replaced by another Republican in the state assembly.

However three weeks after his death and two days after his burial, the self-styled "Trump of Pahrump" won the race for District 36 of the Nevada Assembly.

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

Mr Hof's campaign manager Chuck Muth said election day was "bittersweet".

Police did not suspect foul play at the time of his death and no one who was with him the night before noticed any signs of ill health.

A deceased individual, Dennis Hof, who operated a brothel in Nevada, has emerged victorious in the USA midterm elections conducted on Tuesday, November 6, as his patrons voted massively for him, giving him 53% of the total votes cast.

The pro-Trump candidate still found favour with the voters and patrons of Hof's Nevada brothel, even from the great beyond just to keep his memory alive. He also starred in the HBO adult reality series Cathouse and wrote a book titled The Art of the Pimp, akin to Trump's book The Art of the Deal.

Before his demise, the deceased had reportedly attempted to mould his political image on that of President Donald Trump, often referring to himself as "Trump from Pahrump" after his hometown in Nevada. He continued the festivities at his brothel with reality television personality Flavor Flav and porn-film actor Ron Jeremy, who found Hof dead the next morning.

He said an anti-brothel push and regulatory problems he faced this year were political retribution.

About 20 brothels operate in Nevada, mostly in rural areas. The Love Ranch brothel that Hof owned became notorious as the place where former Laker Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015.

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