Nevada brothel owner Dennis Hof gained fame after HBO featured his brothel (and the people in it) in the long-running series, Cathouse. Seeing the success of con man and fellow deplorable Donald Trump, Hof decided it was his time to enter politics and he threw his hat in the ring, running as a Republican for Nevada’s state assembly. Hof even called himself “Trump from Pahrump,” a nod to the small-ish Nevada town outside Las Vegas where his brothel was housed. Like Trump, Hof was facing accusations of multiple sexual assaults, including an accusation he raped a woman in 2005.
Hof died in his sleep after a night of celebrating his 72nd birthday. Porn actor Ron Jeremy, a longtime friend, found him in his bed after he failed to show for a morning meet-up. The porn star and pimp were headed to a senior center to campaign. Only in Nevada, folks!
What’s remarkable is that the rising Republican pimp had quite the guest list at his party the night before, including several big name Republican stars. According to Chuck Muth, Dennis Hof’s campaign spokesman, former law man (and current racist) Joe Arpaio was there.
As was Grover Norquist, the founder of Americans for Tax Reform, a Reagan-Bush-GWB era conservative who once said, "My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years, to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub." Nice guy, huh? Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan have been doing their best to carry out Norquist’s longtime dream.
