Dead Brothel Owner Wins Nevada Legislative Seat

Dennis Hof Dennis Hof has won a seat in the Nevada state assembly despite being dead
Ellis Copeland | 08 November, 2018, 20:39

Republican Dennis Hof, the owner of several brothels who was found dead last month, received the support of more than 17,000 people - 63 percent of the vote - in his district's race for State Assembly on Tuesday, according to unofficial results posted on Nevada's election website. The 36th Assembly District is situated in the south portion of Nevada, and includes portions of Nye, Lincoln, and Clark counties.

If Hof is declared the victor in his district, the seat will be declared vacant and a replacement will be appointed by three commissioners of the district's three counties, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The snag is, Mr. Hof is dead and buried a few weeks before the election.

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.

He was believed to have died in his sleep.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Hof had been running as a pro-Donald Trump Republican candidate. Dennis Hof was partying with porn actor Ron Jeremy when he died last month.

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

It's one thing to sing the words, "I'm so fucking grateful for my ex", and it's another to really look like you mean them. The music industry is honouring Ariana Grande . "He is supposed to be here".


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's Love Ranch brothel about an hour outside of Las Vegas, the same brothel where National Basketball Association player Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015, is where Jeremy and a prostitute found Hof's body.

The HBO reality show Cathouse focused on the daily happenings at Hof's Moonlite BunnyRanch, a legally owned and operated brothel.

But much of Nevada's establishment GOP shunned him.

He ran for office in 2016 as a Libertarian but lost.

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

It was too late to remove his name from the ballot paper, where Hof stood for the Nevada State Assembly - and voters selected him, despite widespread coverage of his death.
