Dead Brothel Owner Wins Nevada Legislative Seat

Dennis Hof

Dennis Hof has won a seat in the Nevada state assembly despite being dead

The pro-Trump candidate still found favour with the voters and patrons of Hof's Nevada brothel, even from the great beyond just to keep his memory alive.

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

In June, Mr Hof won the nomination contest for a Republican state assembly seat, supported by Trump associates Roger Stone and Grover Norquist and evangelical Christians who said they voted for him because they believed he would clean up politics.

Dennis Hof, a brothel owner who died last month, overwhelmingly won an election to Nevada's State Assembly on Tuesday.

Hof spent the days before his death attending parties celebrating his 72nd birthday.

"There are a lot of Republicans who were uncomfortable voting for Dennis because of the nature of his business, and they now know that he is not the one who will be serving", he said.

His body was discovered by porn actor Ron Jeremy and a prostitute.

But much of Nevada's establishment GOP shunned him.

Hof said earlier this year that Trump's 2016 victory helped inspire him to run for office this year.
