Dead Brothel Owner Wins Nevada Legislative Seat

  • Dennis Hof

Hof died in the same Love Ranch suite where Lamar Odom, the former National Basketball Association player and ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian, overdosed in October 2015, the New Yorker report said.

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

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

Hof, who ran as a Republican, defeated Democratic challenger Lesia Romanov by more than 7,000 votes, the office said. County officials say they will appoint a Republican to Hof's seat.

Officials are still waiting to determine Hof's cause of death.

His campaign manager, Chuck Muth, announced the death on Twitter the following day, stating that he had been found unresponsive by Jeremy himself. A Republican will be tapped to serve in his place.

"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", campaign manager Chuck Muth said in a statement to Reuters.


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.

Hof was found dead at his Love Ranch brothel, located about an hour outside Las Vegas.

Hof, 72, was found dead by porn actor Ron Jeremy on October 16 at the Love Ranch, one of the brothels Hof owned in Nevada.

Hof was accused of sexual assault at least four times, most recently in September.

The budding politician was found deceased after a rally with porn star Ron Jeremy and Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Hof ran for office in 2016 as a Libertarian but lost, and this year he ran as a Republican and earned backing from Trump associate Roger Stone and anti-tax-increase advocate Grover Norquist.

Hof had 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, according to reports.
