Nevada Voters Elected a Dead Brothel Owner to State Assembly

Hof died in the same Love Ranch suite where Lamar Odom, the former National Basketball Association player and ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian, overdosed in October 2015, the New Yorker report said.

Hof owned a handful of brothels in Nevada, the only state that allows them to legally operate.

Late brothel owner (and reality TV star) Dennis Hof won the Nevada state legislative race he was running for as a Republican prior to his passing last month.

According to the Associated Press, Hoff then beat Democratic educator Lesia Romanov on November 6 in the race for Nevada's 36th Assembly District.

County officials will appoint a Republican to take his place in the seat.

Muth also stated the election day was "bittersweet".

Chuck Muth, Hof's campaign manager, said on Twitter that Jeremy found Hof's body when he went to wake him up in the morning.

Hof was accused of sexual assault at least four times, most recently in September.

Dennis Hof was an American brothel owner, entrepreneur, restaurateur and star of the HBO series, "Cathouse".

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

Hof ran as a pro-Donald Trump Republican in a district that heavily supported the president in the 2016 election.

After Hof won the June nominating contest for the state Assembly seat, some evangelicals in his district said they had voted for him because they believed he would clean up politics and not be beholden to special-interest groups and their money.

The former brothel owner, who described himself as the "Trump of Pahrump" (a town in Nevada), was expected to win in the general election after upsetting incumbent Assemblyman James Oscarson.
