The New York Post: Nevada brothel owner-turned-candidate Dennis Hof found dead

Legal pimp and GOP Nevada legislature hopeful Dennis Hof died at his own brothel Tuesday, following a campaign rally whose guests included conservative kingmaker Grover Norquist and aging porn star Ron Jeremy, according to reports.

Hof, the 72-year-old owner of several legal bordellos in the Sagebrush State, “went to sleep last night and didn’t wake up,” Nye County spokesman Arnold Knightly told the Reno Gazette Journal.

“I just confirmed with Nye County sheriff’s deputy that Dennis Hof passed away this morning. No other details at this point. I’m heading out to Love Ranch Vegas now,” tweeted his campaign manager Chuck Muth, referring to the house of ill repute where Hof expired.

“Ron Jeremy found him this morning when he went to wake him to go to a meeting,” Muth added in another tweet.

The body was discovered shortly before 11 a.m., and there were no signs of foul play, officials said.

The flesh-peddler was running for Nevada Assembly and seemed in good spirits during a Monday-night campaign rally, according to Muth.

“We had a wonderful event last night. He was having the time of his life last night. Grover Norquist was there. Ron Jeremy was there. He was given a rescue dog as a birthday present. He was having the time of his life,” Muth told the Gazette Journal.

The “Art of the Pimp” author — who mounted a Donald Trump-style campaign — shocked political observers over the summer when he bested a Republican incumbent in a state primary for the southern Nevada district.

Due to Nevada election law, he’ll still be listed on the ballot in November, but signs will be posted at polling places in the district alerting voters that he’s dead.

If he manages to win from beyond the grave, the seat would be considered vacant, Nevada deputy secretary of state for elections Wayne Thorley told the Gazette Journal.

“I’m stunned. This is not the turn I would expect,” Hof’s Democratic opponent Lesia Romanov told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “My heart goes out to those who care about him. All I can say is wow.”

Hof owned a handful of brothels in Nevada, where prostitution is legal in some counties and was catapulted to fame in the mid-aughts thanks to HBO’s “Cathouse: The Series,” which chronicled his Moonlite BunnyRanch.
