Dead man wins election in U.S., can it happen in Africa' ?




 Dead man wins election in U.S., can it happen in Africa' ?





A dead man has been elected as a legislature in Nevada’s State Assembly, in the just concluded U.S. mid-term elections.




According to the Huffington Post, Mr Dennis Hof died unexpectedly in
mid-October, but his name wasn’t scratched off the ballot under Nevada
law.




The pro-Trump candidate still found favour with the voters and
patrons of Hof’s Nevada brothel, even from the great beyond just to keep
his memory alive.




Elections officials said that Republican Dennis Hof won a seat in
Nevada’s State Assembly, with 53 percent of the vote in his Clark
County, beating Democrat school administrator and political newcomer,
Lesia Romanov, who amassed 47 percent of the vote.




Hof had attempted to mould his political image on that of President
Donald Trump, often referring to himself as “Trump from Pahrump” after
his hometown in Nevada, according to reports.




The brothel owner, who ran an anti-establishment campaign, got into
the crucial race after winning the primary but was not destined to see
his political triumph.




This October, Hof was found dead at Love Ranch, one of his legal
brothels, after his 72nd birthday party, which featured guests such as
legendary porn star Ron Jeremy and potential Republican Senate candidate
Joe Arpaio.




However, his name remained on the ballot in accordance with Nevada’s
legislation, as the deadline for changing the roster had passed.




Despite the paradoxical outcome, there are procedures in place to
ensure that when Hof’s posthumous victory is confirmed, local county
commissioners may appoint another Republican to fill his seat.




This set the expectations of Hof’s campaign manager, Chuck Muth,
high; as he suggested voters would still opt for the deceased Republican
ahead of the General Elections.




“They will feel much more comfortable casting the ballot for him,
knowing there will be another Republican to replace him,” he said
shortly after the pimp’s passing.




Some mocked the U.S. election system for this rare occurrence.
