Vote For the Dead Brothel Owner. It's Important!

Dennis Hof

Dennis Hof

His campaign manager had predicted weeks ago that Hof would overcome his own death to clinch the vote because the district leans heavily Republican and even alluded that Hof would perform better due to the situation.

Hof, who ran as a Republican, defeated Democratic challenger Lesia Romanov by more than 7,000 votes, the office said. He starred in the HBO adult reality series Cathouse and wrote a book titled The Art of the Pimp, akin to Trump's book The Art of the Deal.

The brothel where his body was found is where National Basketball Association player Lamar Odom, who had a tumultuous relationship with reality television star Khloe Kardashian, was found unconscious in 2015.

Under Nevada law, Republican county officials will appoint someone to serve the term in the Assembly to which Hof was elected.

The budding politician was found deceased after a rally with porn star Ron Jeremy and Sheriff Joe Arpaio. This year, he ran as a Republican and earned backing from former Trump advisor Roger Stone and tax-cut activist Grover Norquist.

Amendment 3 , on the other hand, would have placed a 15 percent tax on weed you'd buy at a storefront, and a tax on wholesale bud. MI is now one of nine states that allow recreational use of the substance, including California, Colorado, and Washington, D.C.

Brothels operate legally in seven rural Nevada counties.

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.

We're told potential candidates will have until the end of November to submit applications, and then members of the Board of County Commissioners in the 3 counties will get together and pick whomever they deem fit. The state doesn't publicise how many are open, and most owners keep a much lower profile than Hof did. Hof secured the Republican nomination for the Nevada Assembly, and some time thereafter turned 72.

Hof's campaign for District 36 - composed of Nye, Lincoln and Clark Counties - was marked by publicity stunts and billboard advertising that broadcast his pledges of repealing taxes and protecting gun rights, according to the USA magazine The New Yorker. Because the district is located in three counties, three candidates could potentially be identified to take his place before a final selection is determined.
