Republican brothel owner who died last month, wins election in Nevada

The population of the American state of Nevada has outdone itself at the midterm elections, electing a a dead brothel owning reality TV star to its Legislative Assembly. "In Assembly District 36, nearly 64 percent of the population resides in Nye County, about 34 percent lives in Clark County, and about 3 percent resides in Lincoln County". According to state law, county officials will now appoint a fellow Republican who also resides in the district to take Hof's seat. The state doesn't publicize how many are open, and most owners keep a much lower profile than Hof did.

Police did not suspect foul play at the time of his death and no one who was with him the night before noticed any signs of ill health.

He said Mr Hof "died quietly in his sleep" at Love Ranch - one of the brothels he operated in Crystal, Nevada.

Before his demise, the deceased had reportedly attempted to mould his political image on that of President Donald Trump, often referring to himself as "Trump from Pahrump" after his hometown in Nevada.

Hof was running for a seat in the Nevada state assembly as a pro-Trump Republican.

The 72-year-old owned a number of brothels in Nevada, starred in the HBO adult reality series "Cathouse" and wrote a book titled "The Art of the Pimp".

Hof, 72, was found dead on October 16 by adult film star Ron Jeremy after a weekend of parties celebrating Hof's birthday. His body was discovered by porn actor Ron Jeremy and a prostitute at the brothel.

Around 20 brothels operate in Nevada - the only USA state where prostitution is legal.

Former NBA star Lamar Odom was once famously found unconscious at Love Ranch after a four-day stay. As a result, Nevada Republicans encouraged people to vote for him anyway.

Bonus link: ReasonTV interviewed Hof back in 2014 on prostitution, libertarianism, and more. He said this was the best year ever.

It was too late to remove his name from the ballot paper, where Hof stood for the Nevada State Assembly - and voters selected him, despite widespread coverage of his death.
