  • Deceased Republican Brothel Owner Dennis Hof Elected To Nevada Assembly

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

His body was discovered by porn actor Ron Jeremy and a prostitute.

Around 20 brothels operate in Nevada - the only USA state where prostitution is legal.

Signs were posted at polling places to inform voters in the district that Hof had died, but Republicans launched a campaign encouraging people to still vote for him and prevent the seat from falling into Democratic hands.

Hof also ran for the state Legislature in 2016 as a Libertarian but lost the race.

As for his death, Hof may have literally partied himself to death, as he was found dead in a brothel on October 16, 2018, after celebrating his 72 birthday for four days straight.

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

Florida voters line up behind constitutional amendments
The move also attracted significant star power from singer John Legend and Orange is the New Black author Piper Kerman. Constitutional amendments need no less than 60 percent of the vote to pass.

He was a supporter of President Donald Trump and his campaign netted endorsements from high-profile political figures like Americans for Tax Reform head Grover Norquist and fringe right fixture Roger Stone. 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.

We're told potential candidates will have until the end of November to submit applications, and then members of the Board of County Commissioners in the 3 counties will get together and pick whomever they deem fit.

He said he faced political retribution this year in the form of an anti-brothel push and regulatory problems.

By the time he died, it was too late to put another Republican on the general election ballot.

Nevada's 36th Assembly District sits in the southern portion of the state, and includes portions of Nye, Lincoln and of Clark counties.
