    Lets be honest, he will probably do a better job than most of the live ones

    Sorry about the thread title, why can't we edit that as well?
    A dead man, who before his death was a brothel owner and reality TV star, has won a seat in the Nevada state legislature. The AP reports:

    A Nevada brothel owner and reality TV star who died last month after fashioning himself as a Donald Trump-style Republican candidate has won a heavily GOP state legislative district.

    Dennis Hof defeated Democratic educator Lesia Romanov on Tuesday in the race for Nevada’s 36th assembly district, which includes rural communities and large stretches of desert in the southern part of the state. County officials will appoint a Republican to take his place in the seat.

    Hof was found dead on 16 October after a weekend of parties celebrating his 72nd birthday. Officials are still determining his cause of death, but they don’t suspect foul play.

    Hof owned a handful of brothels in Nevada, the only state that allows them to legally operate.

    He also starred in the HBO adult reality series Cathouse and wrote a book titled The Art of the Pimp, akin to Trump’s book The Art of the Deal.

    Hof was found dead at his Love Ranch brothel about an hour outside Las Vegas. His body was discovered by **** actor Ron Jeremy and a prostitute at the brothel.

    Hof had spent the four previous days partying with notables from the sex industry and political world celebrating his 72nd birthday.

    The brothel where his body was found is where NBA player Lamar Odom was found unconscious in 2015.

    About 20 brothels operate in Nevada, mostly in rural areas. They’re banned in the counties that contain Las Vegas and Reno. The state doesn’t publicize how many are open, and most owners keep a much lower profile than Hof did.

    Hof ran for office in 2016 as a Libertarian but lost the race.

    This year, he ran as a Republican and earned backing from Trump associate Roger Stone and tax-cut activist Grover Norquist.

    He upended Nevada politics this summer when he ousted an incumbent Republican lawmaker in a primary, celebrating at an election night party with “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss.

    What does this tell us more about, the dismal quality of the Democrat candidate who couldn't even beat a dead opponent, or the astonishing quality of the local electorate whose collective IQ would appear to be in double figures; or the total irrelevance of state Congresses in US politics?

    Does it have anything to do with early or postal voting?

    So is an "olitician" just a politician who doesn't take the "P". (or makes it less obvious);)

    Thank goodness. At first I thought we were talking about THE Hoff! -- Knight Rider, Baywatch and other quality TV!

    I thought it was going to be yet another Brexit thread, this time on the ollytician, Olly Robbins.

    The perfect one is the one who doesn't take the p.

    Initial reactions are often irrelevant.
