A Republican Dennis Hof, has won an election to Nevada’s State Assembly three weeks after he died.
Mr. Hof, who owned series of Hotels in the state was found dead in one of them by porn star Ron Jeremy three weeks ago, but Republicans, following Nevada’s law kept him on the ballot to stop Democrat rival, Lesia Romanov from winning the election.
Hof polled 68.3% of the vote while his counterpart polled 31.78%.
His campaign manager, Chuck Muth, speaking at one of Hof’s brothels said: “He’s not going to make it to the promised land with us but we hope he’s watching from the great beyond. He died quietly in his sleep,”
He died after a weekend-long party for his 72nd birthday but the police have said they do not suspect foul play regarding his death.
Hof dubbed himself the “Trump from Pahrump”
Another Republican will be appointed to serve in his place.
