Republican Dennis Hof's death didn't stop Nevada residents from voting for him. The reality TV star and brothel owner who died last month won the election for Nevada's 36th Assembly District.
Hof's body was found on October 16 after he reportedly spent the weekend partying to celebrate his 72nd birthday. He owned several brothels in Nevada, including Bunny Love Ranch, the same brothel where Lamar Odom overdosed in 2015.
The unofficial Nye County numbers show Hof beat out Democrat Lesia Romanov 11,116 votes to 5,012. County officials now must convene and decide on a Republican to take his place in the legislative seat.
