Brothel owner Dennis Hof posthumously wins Nevada assembly seat

Elections officials said that Republican Dennis Hof won a seat in Nevada's State Assembly, with 53 percent of the vote in his Clark County, beating Democrat school administrator and political newcomer, Lesia Romanov, who amassed 47 percent of the vote.

County officials said they would appoint a replacement candidate from the same party for his seat.

Hof, 72, was found dead on October 16 by adult film star Ron Jeremy after a weekend of parties celebrating Hof's birthday.

Dennis Hof owner of the "Moonlite Bunny Ranch" attends Exxotica Day 1 at New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center on November 13, 2015 in Edison, N.J.

His campaign manager actually seemed to admit at one stage that Hof's death might have improved his voting performance.

Hof, who starred in the HBO reality television show Cathouse about the prostitutes working at one of his establishments, was running as a Donald Trump-style Republican.

Mr Hof ran as an outspoken Republican for Nevada's Assembly District 36 before his death at the age of 72.

Fluker (calf) appeared to be OK. "He affected all of us. his wisdom and his charity and his love for this area". The Seahawks had one final chance to tie the game at the end of Sunday's contest against the Chargers.

Nevada Police, however, said they did not suspect foul play at the time of his death and no one that was with him the night before noticed any signs of ill health.

Bonus link: ReasonTV interviewed Hof back in 2014 on prostitution, libertarianism, and more.

"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.

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

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.

So who will end up representing Nevada's Assembly District 36? Nye County encompasses the largest swath of the district, so its commissioner will have the biggest say, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
