A dead brothel owner has won a seat in the Nevada state assembly at the US midterm elections.
Dennis Hof defeated Democratic educator Lesia Romanov in the race for Nevada's 36th Assembly District, which includes rural communities and large stretches of desert in the southern part of the state.
County officials will appoint a Republican to take his place in the seat.
Hof was found dead last month after a weekend of parties celebrating his 72nd birthday. Officials are still determining his cause of death, but they don't suspect foul play.
Hof's campaign for District 36 - composed of Nye, Lincoln and Clark Counties - was marked by publicity stunts and billboard advertising that broadcast his pledges of repealing taxes and protecting gun rights, according to The New Yorker.
Hof, the self-described 'Trump of Pahrump,' was accused of rape and sexual assault by two of his former employees, according to the Review-Journal, citing a police report.
Hof denied the claims.
Hof died at his Love Ranch brothel on October 16. The evening prior, he celebrated with a political rally at a hotel and casino called the Pahrump Nugget, according to The New Yorker. He continued the festivities at his brothel with rap star Flavor Flav and porn-film actor Ron Jeremy, who found Hof dead.
The brothel where his body was found is where NBA player Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015.
