Dead Nevada brothel owner wins election

Dead Nevada brothel owner wins election
Dennis Hof

Washington, November 8

A colourful brothel owner and former reality TV star who died last month nonetheless posthumously won a seat in the Nevada state legislature.

He may be dead, but Dennis Hof scored 69.02 per cent in Tuesday’s vote against Democratic candidate Lesia Romanov, at 30.98 per cent, to win the assembly seat representing rural southern Nye County, official records showed.

A Republican will be tapped to serve in his place.

Hof, 72, was found dead at the Love Ranch, one of his legal brothels in Crystal, Nevada, on October 16 after celebrating his birthday with a party attended by porn star Ron Jeremy and other guests. He was believed to have died in his sleep.

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. — AFP
