Dennis Hof, the bombastic Nevada pimp whose brothel, the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, was featured on HBO’s late-night reality show “Cathouse,” has died at 72.
His death comes weeks before Election Day, when the Republican nominee was expected to be a favorite for a state assembly seat.
Nye County Commissioner John Koenig confirmed the news Tuesday at a meeting, according to Nye County spokesman Arnold Knightly.
Hof “went to sleep last night and didn’t wake up,” Koenig said, according to Knightly.
The Nye County Sheriff is investigating, Knightly said.
