LAS VEGAS — Pimp Dennis Hof, the owner of half a dozen legal brothels in Nevada and star of the HBO adult reality series “Cathouse,” won a Republican primary for the state Legislature on Tuesday, ousting a three-term lawmaker.
Hof defeated hospital executive James Oscarson. He’ll face Democrat Lesia Romanov in November, and will be the favoured candidate in the Republican-leaning Assembly district.
Hof celebrated his win at a party in Pahrump with Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss at his side.
“It’s all because Donald Trump was the Christopher Columbus for me,” Hof told the Associated Press in a phone call. “He found the way and I jumped on it.”
Hof, who wrote a book titled “The Art of the Pimp,” has dubbed himself “The Trump of Pahrump,” and held a rally with longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone. Hof was in the limelight in 2015, when former NBA player Lamar Odom was found unconscious at Hof’s Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada, after a four-day, $75,000 stay.
If Hof wins in November, he wouldn’t be the only brothel owner in elected office — Lance Gilman, the owner of the famous Mustang Ranch in northern Nevada, is a Storey County Commissioner.
Voters in November will be voting on closing down brothels at least one of the seven Nevada counties where they’re legally operating. The question will be on the ballot in Lyon County, where Hof owns four brothels. Activists are also gathering signatures to try to get to get measure on the ballot in Nye County, where Hof owns two more brothels in the desert outside the city of Pahrump.
He painted the anti-brothel efforts as political retribution that’s tied to his opponent, but Oscarson and the referendum backers deny any connection.
Most brothels operate in rural areas of Nevada. They’re banned in the counties that contain Las Vegas and Reno.
Hof said Tuesday he’s downsizing his business by selling off some brothels to focus more on politics.
Oscarson and Hof previously faced off in 2016 when Hof ran for the seat as a Libertarian. Oscarson won with 60 per cent of the vote.

BIZARRE BEDFELLOWS: BunnyRanch owner wins evangelical support

America’s primo pimp has shockingly been given the blessing of evangelicals in his quest for political office.
Dennis Hof — who owns the famed BunnyRanch brothels, scores of strip clubs and other sex-related businesses — is an odd bedfellow for the state’s Bible thumpers.

Now, those religious voters appear poised to elect Hof to the Nevada legislature as a Republican.
He puts it down to U.S. President Donald Trump’s popularity.
“This really is the Trump movement,” Hof, 71, told Reuters.
“People will set aside for a moment their moral beliefs, their religious beliefs, to get somebody that is honest in office.”
Hof attributes his win to U.S. President Donald Trump’s popularity with evangelicals. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
He added: “Trump is the trailblazer, he is the Christopher Columbus of honest politics.”
Hof’s Moonlite BunnyRanch gained fame after hormone-charged hijinks at the brothel were featured in the HBO reality show Cathouse.
One Nevada evangelical priest claimed that when Hof won the nomination on June 12, he prayed.
“People want to know how an evangelical can support a self-proclaimed pimp,” Rev. Victor Fuentes said.

“We have politicians, they might speak good words, not sleep with prostitutes, be a good neighbour.
“But by their decisions, they have evil in their heart. Dennis Hof is not like that.”
Hof — divorced three times and author of The Art of the Pimp — has discovered that old foes can become friends. Many religious people have long battled Nevada’s legal brothel industry.
But Fuentes feels secure that his onetime nemesis will protect religious freedoms — and like others, longed for a Trumpian housecleaning of the state’s politics.

“I’m kind of rich, I’m kind of famous, and I’m surrounded by hot chicks. I don’t give a damn what anybody says about me,” Hof said.
His bawdy business and recent allegations he sexually abused a number of women didn’t stem evangelicals’ fervour.
But Hof isn’t quite ready to proclaim himself born again.

“I don’t share my beliefs with the public,” he said. “I don’t feel the need to go to church on a regular basis.”
Not everyone is buying.
“For me, it goes back to faith and values,” Pastor Paul Goulet said. “Hof has a profession making money out of young women who sell their bodies for sexual favours. It’s demeaning to women.”
He added: “I can’t wrap my brain around supporting someone who does that.”

Love Ranch pimp-turned-politician Dennis Hof stripped of brothel licence

The best known pimp in America, Dennis Hof, has been stripped of his Nevada brothel license. HBO
Pimp-turned-politician Dennis Hof has been stripped of his brothel licence as Nevada is suddenly turning prudish on prostitution.
But officials say the brothel brouhaha has nothing to do with Hof’s quest to become the Donald Trump of Carson City, the state capital.
Huckster Hof — whose sexx-rated antics were featured in the HBO series Cathouse — reportedly failed to apply for a renewal and pay fees for his Love Ranch brothel, located about an hour from Las Vegas.
Commissioner Lorinda Wichman said the action was the first time in at least a decade that she can recall Nye County permanently revoking a brothel licence.

But it’s not the first time Hof’s property has been closed.
The county temporarily suspended his licence in February, saying he failed to produce permits for renovations to trailer homes where his prostitutes work.
Hof slammed the move as politically motivated harassment.
In 2017, he clashed with county officials over allegations that prostitutes at his Area 51-themed brothel did not have proper work permits and medical records. The allegations were later dropped.
Hof faced no penalties last year when he failed to pay his fees or renew his licences on time. Wichman said officials let that violation slide, but his businesses have been an ongoing problem.
“We have given an awful lot of leeway to each of those code violations,” the county commissioner said.
Hof’s brothel was the site where former NBA star and Kardashian sideman Lamar Odom came off the rails in 2015.
In a number of counties, there is an anti-brothel push underway, including ballot measures.
Brothels, which are illegal in the counties that contain Las Vegas and Reno, harken back to Nevada’s days as a mining territory about 150 years ago.

Brothels were illegal but tolerated in some areas until 1971, when the Mustang Ranch near Reno became the first legal brothel.
It led to a movement that allowed counties with populations of 700,000 or fewer to decide whether to legalize prostitution in licensed facilities. Outside of bordellos, prostitution is illegal.
About 20 brothels operate in Nevada, mostly in rural areas. The state doesn’t publicize how many are open, and most owners keep a much lower profile than Hof.

Ron Jeremy finds Nevada pimp who starred in HBO series dead in bed

PAHRUMP, Nev. — Dennis Hof, a pimp who gained notoriety for an HBO series about his brothel business and who fashioned himself as a Donald Trump-style Republican candidate for the state Legislature, was found dead hours after his extended-weekend 72nd birthday bash, authorities said Tuesday.
Hof was pronounced dead in his private residence at his Love Ranch brothel west of Las Vegas, Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly said.
Ron Jeremy, a pornographic movie star who attended Hof’s party on Monday night, told The Associated Press that he and a woman found Hof’s body after Hof failed to meet them.
Hof’s eyes “were not full” and his skin felt cold, said Jeremy. “He was totally stiff. And I’m saying ’Honey, we really have a problem here.”’
A group that included sheriff’s employees and several women watched several hours later as Hof’s body was removed on a stretcher beneath a red shroud, past lawn furniture, Grecian-style statutes and signs advertising the bordello as, “Always Open, Always Tasty, No sex required.”
Wehrly, who also serves as county coroner, said she saw Hof at his birthday party late Monday at a local casino-hotel reception room with more than 100 of his friends, including former Phoenix-area sheriff Joe Arpaio. Other birthday celebrations were held throughout the weekend, according to Chuck Muth, a campaign consultant to Hof.
“He was sitting on a stool talking with people when I left about 10,” Wehrly said of Hof, who she said had celebrated at another party during the weekend in northern Nevada. “I guess that’s partying at 72.”
The sheriff said there was no preliminary indication of foul play but her office was investigating. An autopsy will be conducted by the Clark County coroner in Las Vegas. Wehrly said results of the medical examination could take six weeks.
Hof, who turned 72 on Sunday, was the Republican candidate in a heavily GOP state legislative district.
Arpaio, the former six-term sheriff of metropolitan Phoenix known nationally for his positions on illegal immigration, said Hof was in good spirits when Arpaio left the party around 10 p.m. Monday.
“Boy, that’s shocking,” Arpaio said of Hof’s death.
Arpaio, who lost a Senate GOP primary in Arizona in August, said he had taken part in some of Hof’s campaign efforts and was asked by Hof to speak at the party. The lawman said he delivered his comments to the crowd, wished Hof well and ate birthday cake.
“The thing I liked about him: He was with Trump and was for the Second Amendment and lower taxes,” Arpaio said in a telephone interview before boarding a plane to Phoenix.
Ahead of the birthday celebration, Hof teased on Twitter that rapper and reality television star Flavor Flav would be there. Flavor Flav’s “Flavor of Love” reality TV series ran about a decade ago, about the same time as Hof’s HBO series “Cathouse.”
Flavour Flav’s lawyer, Kristina Wildeveld, said Tuesday her client did not attend.
Hof owned a handful of brothels in Nevada, the only state that allows them to legally operate.
His Love Ranch brothel outside Pahrump is where NBA player Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015.
The brothel was temporarily shuttered twice this year by regulators who said Hof failed to renew licenses and get proper permits for renovations.
About 20 brothels operate in Nevada, mostly in rural areas.
In addition to his legislative campaign, Hof fought a push to outlaw brothels and had problems with local regulators in the two counties where he ran licensed bordellos.
Hof had also been accused of sexual assault on at least four occasions. The Nevada Department of Public Safety has said it was investigating an allegation made in September but has released few details.
Hof had denied any wrongdoing.
Besides “Cathouse,” the flamboyant Hof wrote a book titled “The Art of the Pimp,” a play on Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal.”
Wayne Thorley, deputy Nevada secretary of state for elections, said Hof’s name will remain on the November ballot. Thorley said ballots with Hof’s name have already been mailed to voters but signs will be posted at polling places notifying voters of his death.
If Hof wins in the heavily GOP assembly district, officials will nominate another Republican to fill the vacancy, Thorley said.
Hof was running against Democratic Las Vegas educator Lesia Romanov.
Hof also ran for the state Legislature in 2016 as a Libertarian but lost the race.
This year, he ran as a Republican and earned backing from Trump associate Roger Stone and tax-cut activist Grover Norquist, who attended one of Hof’s parties.
He upended Nevada politics this summer when he ousted an incumbent Republican lawmaker in a primary, celebrating at an election night party with former “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss.
He said the anti-brothel push and regulatory problems he’s faced this year were political retribution.

Weeks after his mysterious death, brothel owner Dennis Hof was elected to Nevada’s state legislature, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The notorious brothel owner, who owned the Love Ranch where Lamar Odom nearly died of an overdose, was campaigning for a Republican seat of Nevada’s 36th legislative district.
On October 16, Hof passed away at the age of 72.
His death is currently under investigation and toxicology results are pending to determine the cause.

Last month, authorities confirmed to Radar that Hof passed away suddenly in his sleep. Hof’s campaign manager, Chuck Muth, explained the brothel owner was “having the time of his life” celebrating his 72nd birthday at a star-studded bash hours before his passing.
Porn star Ron Jeremy also told Radar exclusively that the Bunny Ranch owner had a wild night of sex with a “Latin girl” before his passing.
On Tuesday, the late aspiring politician defeated Democrat Lesia Romanov. According to reports, officials will appoint a Republican to take Hof’s seat.
Hof was outspoken about Odom’s shocking overdose at the Bunny Ranch in 2015. This summer he slammed former sex worker Savanna after it was reported she was shacking up with Odom.

LAS VEGAS — America’s most famous pimp died of a heart attack in bed at one of his legal brothels in Nevada after his weekend-long 72nd birthday bash featuring porn stars, political pals and others, authorities said.
Dennis Hof, a Donald Trump-style Republican who won posthumous election to the Nevada Legislature, died of natural causes in October, according to an autopsy conducted by the Clark County coroner in Las Vegas and released Thursday by the Nye County Sheriff’s Office in Pahrump.
The 26-page autopsy report said Hof’s heart attack was caused by cardiovascular disease, hardened arteries and high blood pressure.
It also said he was overweight and diabetic, and blood tests found marijuana residue and an erectile dysfunction drug in his system.
Results were delayed about five months to allow time for a complete battery of laboratory tests for unusual poisons and drugs, officials said.

Hof was found dead Oct. 16 at his residence at Love Ranch brothel outside Pahrump by porn star Ron Jeremy and a prostitute who officials said spent part of the previous evening with Hof.
His final party at a hotel-casino in Nye County, about an hour’s drive outside Las Vegas, also included tax-cut activist Grover Norquist, one-time “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss and ex-Arizona sheriff and politician Joe Arpaio.
Hof was a flamboyant former star of the reality TV series “Cathouse” who faced accusations of sexual assault on at least four occasions and denied wrongdoing. He also fought code infraction battles with county officials over his brothels.
He wrote a book titled “The Art of the Pimp,” a play on Donald Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal,” and won election as a Republican to the state Assembly less than a month after his death.
His campaign consultant, Chuck Muth, declined Friday to comment, saying the autopsy results spoke for themselves. Muth has said Hof didn’t drink, smoke or use drugs.

Oh, I think that the GOP Evangelical Family Values types see a whole lot of good in entrapping young women in brothels.
