Brothel Owner Dennis Hof, Who Is Dead, Wins Election for Nevada Legislative Seat
 
Brothel Owner Dennis Hof, Who Is Dead, Wins Election for Nevada Legislative Seat

Quote:

Brothel owner and reality television star Dennis Hof won a legislative seat in Nevada’s heavily GOP 36thAssembly District. The only problem is the 72-year-old was found dead last month on Oct. 16 after partying all weekend in celebration of his birthday.
Quote:

When Hof died weeks before the election, it was already too late to remove his name from the ballot as they had already been printed and mailed. And on Wednesday, The Associated Press reports, Hof easily beat out his fellow Democratic candidate and educator, Lesia Romanov, on Tuesday’s election night with an estimated 68 percent of the votes.
I don't know if this has happened since Huey P. Long. :eek

At least the dead ones can't make things any worse for their voters. Unless you watch The Walking Dead, and then, well...… :D

Looks like the residents of Nevada's 36th district felt they would be better off with a dead man vs. a Democrat.

I understand the humor, but I wonder how many people voted for him KNOWING he was already dead...:confused

That had little to do with it imho, he was well liked.

It's the small town of Pahrump Nevada in Nye county. I was there last weekend picking up some stuff for our sanctuary that is not far from there.

I don't think they have ANY Democrats there.
