Dead brothel owner wins Nevada state assembly seat

Dead brothel owner wins Nevada state assembly seat

Elections officials said that Republican Dennis Hof won a seat in Nevada's State Assembly, with 53 percent of the vote in his Clark County, beating Democrat school administrator and political newcomer, Lesia Romanov, who amassed 47 percent of the vote.

People who are interested in filling the seat of deceased Nevada Assembly District 36 victor Dennis Hof are invited to submit their application, Clark County announced.

72 year old Hof died unexpectedly at his brothel - called "The Love Ranch" - last month, according to the Nye County Sheriff's Office.

His campaign manager said his death likely made him even more of an attractive vote for those who otherwise wouldn't have cast their ballot in his favor given that the state's Republican Party will now fill the seat.

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

Brothels operate legally in seven rural Nevada counties.

Former NBA star Lamar Odom was once famously found unconscious at Love Ranch after a four-day stay. They're banned in counties that contain Las Vegas and Reno, and the state does not publicize how many are open.

He upended Nevada politics this summer when he ousted an incumbent Republican lawmaker in a primary, celebrating at an election night party with "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss.

He said an anti-brothel push and regulatory problems he faced this year needed political retribution. "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". By that time it was too late to replace him on the ballot.
