>> Dennis Hof is the Trump of corrupt.>> He was a colorful character in life but also now in death. Dennis Hof who also called himself America's best known pimp managed to win a seat Tuesday in Nevada's State Assembly despite having died last month. With his name still on the ballot, the late strip club owner who owned five legal brothels in the state, beat his Democratic challenger.

Under Nevada law, state officials can appoint another Republican to fill the vacancy. Hof said Donald Trump's win in 2016 inspired him to dabble in politics. He starred in HBOs adult reality series Cathouse, and wrote a book titled The Art of the Pimp. Last month Hof was found dead hours after a campaign rally at his 72nd birthday party.

Foul play was not reported. Officials had mailed ballots out before his death, allowing the dead brothel owner's name to remain on the ticket. And a remarkable victory was his, coming in first from the grave.
