Dead brothel owner wins election for Nevada legislative seat

  • Dennis Hof

Freakish 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.

Dennis Hof, who ran as a Republican, defeated Democrat Lesia Romanov on Tuesday in the race for the state's 36th Assembly District, a heavily Republican district. The assembly district is located in three counties - Clark, Lincoln and Nye - and touches both California and Utah and includes the Nevada National Security Site where nuclear weapons were once tested. According to state law, county officials will now appoint a fellow Republican who also resides in the district to take Hof's seat. Officials have not yet released a cause of death, but they do not think it was the result of foul play.

"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.

Arguably the single biggest victor in the US Midterms is a brothel owner who has been elected as a congressman for Nevada. Hof had denied the claims.

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


The budding politician was found deceased after a rally with porn star Ron Jeremy and Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Muth said Hof had apparently 'died quietly in his sleep'. Odom entered a coma but survived. He had nicknamed himself the "Trump from Pahrump", after the town where he lived in Nevada. "People will set aside for a moment their moral beliefs, their religious beliefs, to get somebody that is honest in office".

In the end, he won in a complete landslide, taking around 70% of the vote.

"There are a lot of Republicans who were uncomfortable voting for Dennis because of the nature of his business, and they now know that he is not the one who will be serving", the campaign manager, Chuck Muth, told Reuters.

In a June interview from one of his brothels, Hof said his political fortunes had parallels with those of U.S. President Donald Trump.
