"Dennis Hof, who used his celebrity as a brothel owner to launch a political career, was found dead Tuesday at the Love Ranch, one of several legal brothels he owned in Nevada.

Hof was best known for his reality TV show Cathouse that aired on HBO. But recently he stepped into the spotlight as an aspiring politician, vying for a seat in the state assembly. His primary victory over a three-term Republican in a rural district in Southern Nevada roiled local politics and made national headlines".


In a recent interview with NPR, Hof was unabashed about his work as a legal pimp and his political aspirations.

"Dennis Hof is the Trump of Pahrump," Hof said, describing the way people spoke about him in the most populous town in the district. "He's rich, he's famous, he's got nerves of steel. He likes hot girls."


"He was a controversial figure, and not everyone was thrilled with his candidacy. Some establishment Republicans worked against him. And allegations of sexual assault and rape — allegations he denied — clouded his campaign. Still, he was excited about his path from "pimping to politics," as he joked".

See whole article heee:
www.npr.org...


And......the significance?.......the conspiracy angle?......

He was rich and powerful - automatically dangerous to a hypcrotical world of, guess what? - A world run by whores and pimps
- But Hof was the genuine article - The man who would put the prostitutes who control our world to shame.

Right, it was just coincidence that he died when he made a political move 'they' were scared of.......don't bet on it.

Whether it is a President of the US such as John F. Kennedy or powerful brothel owner with poilical aspirations such as Dennis Hof
- or even a straight businessman such as Ross Perot

- The corrupt elite that controls this World - knows how to solve problems


I know, the coroner will report that Hof died of 'natural causes" - But we know better don't we ?

Well, I mean you can claim they killed him but you need a little thing called evidence otherwise it’s just a witch hunt. How old was he? Chances are he did indeed die of natural causes.

Rest In Peace Mr. Hof.

As a libertarian, I support legal prostitution. I wonder who will take his place in Nevada as the brother king...

It’s a victimless crime but once it became illegal the working girls became victims because its a crime. Well, in all other states where it’s still illegal, that is.

This country needs to step away from mixing Christianity with its govt once and for all.

I fail to see how it is legal to sleep with men for money as long as you film it and call it pornography, but if you don't film it, you are now committing a crime.

Just make it legal and tax it. Put in places some testing regulations, etc. Nevada seems to have made it work.

Not quite sure why you would conflate the two.

Prostitution is a state matter in the USA. Technically a county matter.

If it had anything to do with Christianity, New York and California would have the biggest whorehouses ever!

So it doesn't have as much to do with Christianity as it does with local politicians getting voters.

Lots of Christians in countries where prostitution is not only legal, it is just an accepted part of the culture.


Catholic Christianity is the dominant religion in Mexico, representing about 83% of the total population as of 2010



Prostitution in Mexico is legal under Federal Law. Each of the 31 states enacts its own prostitution laws and policies.


So you are comparing apples and hookers.

You forgot that if you do it for free it is legal.

They need to legalize and move on.

You do know that Cali and NY also have Republican politicians right?

Prostitution became illegal in the US after WWI, along with alcohol, weed, and an assortment of other things. I'm sure Christian values had nothing to do with it....

en.wikipedia.org...


In the United States prostitution was originally widely legal. Prostitution was made illegal in almost all states between 1910 and 1915 largely due to the influence of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, which was influential in the banning of drug use and was a major force in the prohibition of alcohol.


That all said, this issue isn't as black and white as I'm making it out to be as there were plenty of other factors but at the core was religion and the fact prostitution was a way for those with no resources and money to make a living. Religion was kind of a big deal back then.

There was, and still is a movement here in Nevada to outlaw prostitution.

And guess which politician was its greatiest advocate? - Harry Reid, Democratic Liberal, Mormon, and Senatte majority leader for many years.

Notice how the words Liberal and Conservative are losing their original meanings - With Hof runnig for office as a
Conservative Republican.

Now, face the facts - So called 'escort services' are often just fronts for prostituton anyway and are probably available in
evey state in the country.

If you die in a brothel in a certain state, and accordting to the famous author Richard Burton
[not the actor,the author of "The Kama Sutra." ] and according to some cultures you will be ascended
- But beware, you may end up in a place where you have to watch "The Devil in Miss Jones"
over and over again forever without ever being able to participate !!!

YES.



Hof, a candidate for the state Assembly in a district in southern Nevada, died in his sleep in the hours after a celebration that featured pornography star Ron Jeremy, former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio and anti-tax activist Grover Norquist, according to his campaign manager Chuck Muth.

It was the RON JEREMY name that caught my attention upon seeing this story yesterday. He was a really cool porn actor in the 1970's. And he's still at it! Long live Viagra, LOL.

He was best known as the owner of seven legal brothels in Nevada. In the state of Nevada, prostitution's legality is determined on a county-by-county basis.[2] Several of his brothels are in Moundhouse, Nevada, a few minutes outside Carson City. His best-known brothel is the Moonlite BunnyRanch. Hof's autobiography, The Art Of The Pimp, was a best-seller, and he lectured at Oxford University in England, Trinity College Dublin and the Sorbonne in France".

"Public speaking and television appearances - Hof had speaking engagements at Oxford University[14] and Trinity College, Dublin.[15][16] In 2001 the New Yorker magazine ran an 11-page article by Rebecca Mead about him entitled "American Pimp".[17] Hof appeared on Walton and Johnson, Brand X with Russell Brand, Rover's Morning Glory, The Johnny Dare Morning Show, Todd and Tyler, American Pimp, The Tyra Banks Show, Lex and Terry, the Opie and Anthony Show, The Adam Carolla Show,[18] The Howard Stern Show, The Mike Calta Show, Loveline with Stryker and Dr. Drew, Derek and Romaine, and on Dr. Phil, as well as giving a tour and interview to conservative pundit Sean Hannity on Hannity and Colmes".++

"Hof died in his sleep at his Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada, on October 16, 2018, following a party for his seventy-second birthday that had been attended by Joe Arpaio, Heidi Fleiss[32] Grover Norquist and Ron Jeremy, the last of whom found Hof unresponsive.[33] Police did not suspect foul play at the time of his death, and no one who was with him the night before noticed any signs of ill health.[33] Hof's legislature campaign manager Chuck Muth said that Hof was "having the time of his life" that night".[34]

Funny - ON a forum [ATS] that often speculates about 'aliens', UFOs and things political and strange - How little
interest there is in a character that led an unusual life where fantasies are real - How little interest there is
here ?

- Is ATS tuning into 'the same old', same old that no longer looks for the different and imaginative dimensions
of Human existence ???
