Nigeria and United States of America appear like siamese twins in not allowing the dead to rest in peace but relish in assigning them roles in the political space, Straightnews has found out.
While a Nigerian President in December 2017 appointed dead persons to superintend over boards and commissions, US voters Tuesday elected a dead person into congress to legislate for them.
This was the drama that played during US mid-term elections as a brothel owner and reality TV star has won his race in Nevada — even though he died last month
Dennis Hof, who ran as a Republican, defeated Democrat Lesia Romanov on Tuesday in the race for the state’s 36th Assembly District, a heavily Republican district.
A Republican will be appointed to the seat by county officials, according to The Associated Press.
Hof, 72, was found dead by porn actor Ron Jeremy on Oct. 16 at the Love Ranch, one of the brothels Hof owned in Nevada.
Hof joined the Republican Party after President Donald Trump was elected and mimicked the president’s tone in his own campaign, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Though Republican leaders in Nye County — where Hof was running — supported him, Nevada’s top Republicans did not, according to the newspaper.
Besides his notoriety as a brothel owner, Hof wrote a book called “The Art of the Pimp” and was seen on the HBO adult reality show “Cathouse,” which followed the lives of brothel workers.
