Nevada brothel owner, found dead last month, wins state legislative seat


According to the Huffington Post, Hof died unexpectedly in mid-October, but his name wasn't scratched off the ballot under Nevada law.

Dennis Hof, a Nevada brothel owner and reality TV star who died last month, won an election for Nevada's 36th Assembly District Tuesday night, the Nevada Secretary of State's office said.

During the poll declaration, Hof had 68.3% of the vote to defeat his Democrat rival Lesia Romanov who polled 31.7%.

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

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

"They will feel much more comfortable casting the ballot for him knowing there will be another Republican to replace him".

Hof died at age 72 less than a month ago at the Love Ranch South in Crystal.

Hof was accused of sexual assault at least four times, most recently in September. The 36th Assembly District is situated in the south portion of Nevada, and includes portions of Nye, Lincoln, and Clark counties. 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.

Dennis Hof was an American brothel owner, entrepreneur, restaurateur and star of the HBO series, "Cathouse". "People will set aside for a moment their moral beliefs, their religious beliefs, to get somebody that is honest in office".

In a June interview from one of his brothels, Hof said his political fortunes had parallels with those of U.S. President Donald Trump.

In the end, he won in a complete landslide, taking around 70% of the vote.

During his campaign, he dubbed himself the "Trump from Pahrump" in reference to the town where he lived in Nevada.
