Dead brothel owner Dennis Hof wins Nevada election

Dennis Hof

Although it might initially sound galling that Democrats earned more votes but didn't get the majority, there's a reason for that: 35 Senate seats were on the ballot this year, and of those, 26 of them were held by Democrats, while only nine were held by Republicans.

Dennis Hof was found dead on October 16 after a weekend of partying to celebrate his 72nd birthday. An official cause of death still has not been released.

Hof owned a handful of brothels in Nevada, the only state that allows them to legally operate.

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

The thrice-divorced author of "The Art of the Pimp", who appeared on HBO's "Cathouse", owned a strip club and five legal brothels in Nevada, the only US state with legalized prostitution.

His body was discovered by porn actor Ron Jeremy and a prostitute.

Hof's Love Ranch brothel about an hour outside of Las Vegas, the same brothel where National Basketball Association player Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015, is where Jeremy and a prostitute found Hof's body.

Opportunity knocks. Breaking Bad film in the works
The Albuquerque Journal includes a logline stating the film "tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom ". Coming soon? Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is working on a two-hour film based on the wildly-popular AMC series.

He ran for office in 2016 as a Libertarian but lost.

The district is heavily rural, containing large desert areas in the southern region of Nevada. Most owners keep a lower profile than Hof did. As a result, Nevada Republicans encouraged people to vote for him anyway.

In a June interview with Reuters at Moonlite BunnyRanch, his brothel near his home in Pahrump, Nevada, Hof said his political fortunes had parallels with those of U.S. President Donald Trump.

Muth said Hof had apparently 'died quietly in his sleep'.

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

In a freakish and unusual set of circumstance, a Republican candidate has been elected to the state assembly of Nevada - despite having died last month.

The sprawling assembly district that touches both California and Utah and includes the Nevada National Security Site where nuclear weapons were once tested.
