A couple of weeks ago I was with a friend from Nevada who told me that a dead brothel owner was favored to be elected to the Nevada legislature.
If Hof is declared the victor in his district, the seat will be declared vacant and a replacement will be appointed by three commissioners of the district's three counties, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
A deceased individual, Dennis Hof, who operated a brothel in Nevada, has emerged victorious in the U.S. midterm elections conducted on Tuesday, November 6, as his patrons voted massively for him, giving him 53% of the total votes cast. Officials have not yet released a cause of death, but they do not think it was the result of foul play.
Hours earlier he had attended a rally for his campaign to win a seat in the Nevada state assembly in GOP-popular District 36. The state doesn't publicize how many are open, and most owners keep a much lower profile than Hof did.

Brothels operate legally in seven rural Nevada counties.
This year, he ran as a Republican and earned backing from Trump associate Roger Stone and tax-cut activist Grover Norquist.
He said an anti-brothel push and regulatory problems he faced this year needed political retribution.
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.
The Moonlite BunnyRanch perhaps the best known of his brothels, was the subject of a long-running HBO reality series called Cathouse.
