||| @RealRonJeremy | Twitter |||

The Nevada man who is known for introducing brothels into the mainstream and who was running for a seat in the state's legislature was found dead today by porn star Ron Jeremy. Dennis Hof was celebrating his 72nd birthday over the weekend with several high profile friends and well-known supporters including the infamous porn star.

Other friends who attended Hof's birthday included the "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss, former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, and several politician friends. The 72-year-old was found deceased found at his Love Ranch brothel outside Las Vegas Wednesday by Jeremy who gave a short interview just hours after the discovery.

Dennis Hof had built himself a reputation based on his attempt to bring Nevada's legal brothel industry into the mainstream. Hof did so by mingling with celebrities and showcasing his businesses with outlandish publicity stunts and even his own HBO reality series titled "Cathouse". Hof had a similar marketing style as Donald Trump when he decided to run as a Republican for a heavily contested GOP Assembly district that includes nuclear test sites in the desert.

Nevada police say no foul play is suspected but it could be up to six weeks before Hof's cause of death is determined. Meanwhile, ballots have already been printed and mailed with voting set to begin Saturday. State officials plan to post notices at polling stations that Hof has died but even so it seems he is likely to be elected.

Hof's campaign consultant Chuck Muth said, "Just when I thought that there was nothing else in this race that could possibly shock me, here we are." Hof had a way with people due to his incendiary and unique personality and even had support from Trump advisor Roger Stone and Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Nevada is the only state where you can pay for sex at legal brothels and Hof used that fact to his advantage by helping bring awareness to the industry. While other brothel owners were laying low and only employing subtle advertising, Hof was doing the opposite. He had a propensity for eye-catching billboards and publicity stunts such as auctioning off several women's virginity.

His political career was cut short with the discovery of his tragic passing Wednesday. Hof once ran for the Statehouse in 2016 as a Libertarian then last summer he ousted a three-term incumbent Republican in the primary. To help win, Hof employed the use of giant billboards advertising his rival's arrest for disorderly conduct from thirty years ago. He also sent campaign emails with a candid picture of the man passed out in his a chair.

After Hof ousted the Republican incumbent, he lost the support of the party including U.S. Sen. Dean Heller and Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt. Some of his other controversial billboards include one that said "Laxalt-Hof-Heller" as "the winning team" and said he would set up a luxury motor coach in front of the Carson City Capitol building that offered liquor and "free shoulder massages" if he won.

The "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss said, "It’s too bad that he didn’t get to see this through. He saw it as going all the way to governor one day." If Hof wins the November 6 election, county officials have decided to nominate another Republican candidate to fill the void left by the brothel owner.

Hof once told the Associated Press that Trump "was the Christopher Columbus for me. He found the way and I jumped on it." Hof was born in Phoenix in 1946 and owned several small businesses including gas stations before relocating to Nevada in the seventies. Hof's empire included six locations with one even being an Area 51-themed brothel.

Blow and getting blown can kill an old man, but at least he came and went.

Good another perv bites the dust.

What bothers me is Joe Arpaio being a friend of a man who is a purveyor of flesh. I thought the old former sheriff was a better man.

Perhaps a Justice Scalia was pulled off.
