Dennis Hof, Recently Deceased Brother Owner, Wins Nevada Election

A colourful brothel owner and former reality TV star who died last month nonetheless posthumously won a seat in the Nevada state legislature during the US Mid Terms.

Hof beat his opponent Democrat Lesia Romanov and took Nevada's 36th Assembly District posthumously. The 36th Assembly District is situated in the south portion of Nevada, and includes portions of Nye, Lincoln, and Clark counties.

Despite the paradoxical outcome, there are procedures in place to ensure that when Hof's posthumous victory is confirmed, local county commissioners may appoint another Republican to fill his seat. Officials are still determining his cause of death, but they don't suspect foul play.

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

Hof was found dead at his Love Ranch brothel, located about an hour outside Las Vegas. The day before his death, he had enjoyed a rally and birthday party that was attended by, amongst others, famous porn star Ron Jeremy.

Hof gained his claim-to-fame by owning several brothels in Nevada, the only state where prostitution is legal.

In a June interview from one of his brothels, Hof said his political fortunes had parallels with those of U.S. President Donald Trump. "People will set aside for a moment their moral beliefs, their religious beliefs, to get somebody that is honest in office".

According to the Huffington Post, Hof died unexpectedly in mid-October, but his name wasn't scratched off the ballot under Nevada law.

Initial estimates suggested the deceased Hof won almost 70% of the vote.

The author of "The Art of the Pimp, ' his autobiography, Hof called himself the 'Trump of Pahrump" after the Nevada city where he owned another two brothels.
