GOP brass shuns Nevada brothel owner who won primary

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada brothel owner Dennis Hof said the “establishment got crushed” when he knocked off an incumbent Republican in a state legislative primary.

But now the flamboyant pimp who starred on the HBO adult reality series “Cathouse,” is being shunned by that some of that GOP establishment as he prepares to run for an Assembly seat in November.

U.S. Sen. Dean Heller, considered the most vulnerable Republican up for re-election in the Senate this year, and Attorney General Adam Laxalt, the GOP’s gubernatorial nominee, are among those refusing to back Hof.

Laxalt “does not support Dennis Hof and will not be supporting him,” Laxalt’s campaign manager Kristin Davison said in an email to AP. Incumbent Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval, who is being forced out by term limits in November, and Wes Duncan, the GOP nominee for Laxalt’s job, also are turning their backs on Hof.

3. The Associate Press is being kind with their description of him as a "brothel owner"....

most sites I've come across this a.m. are just calling him what he is; a pimp.

4. Only the White House can have ties to whoremongers

For a state legislator to have one would be too Trumpian.

5. True!

The GOP only supports the adult porn-film industry professionals and their customers with big fat checks. You regular fuckers not so much.
