Pimp Takes Republican Primary In Nevada
dailycaller.com ^ | 6/13/2018 | David Krayden

He’s got a resume that includes pimping, owning a brothel and starring in his own adult reality show — and he could be the next representative in the Nevada state legislature. Dennis Hof took the GOP primary Tuesday night, The Reno Gazette-Journal reported.

Hof beat James Oscarson, a three-term incumbent, for the nomination.

Hof, also known by a few as the author of “The Art of the Pimp,” says he owes his electoral triumph to President Donald Trump’s inspiration.

“It’s all because Donald Trump was the Christopher Columbus for me,” Hof informed the Associated Press. “He found the way and I jumped on it.”

Hof even describes himself as “The Trump of Pahrump” because Hof lives in Pahrum, Nevada. In a state where the economy runs on gambling, the odds are good for Hof to win his district against Democratic challenger Lesia Romanov. Oscarson won the last state election with 60 percent of the vote.

From RJG.com(usatoday sub), here are the NV results from yesterday. Heller better pick up the pace or we could end up with another demolib in the senate in the form of jackie rosen. Don’t need that. And in Reno, looks like the other hillary got her mid town crowd out to vote for her again. Her repub opponent only managed a 6,000+ vote compared to her 20,000+, I can see where that’s headed. Uber demolib steve sisolak got 72,000+ for gov while Laxalt got 101,000+ on the republican side. Hopefully that holds. The uber lib sisolak is a nutbag.

Disgusting. As we’ve already been discussing on other threads, the Republican party needs to kick him to the curb and say this is NOT what the party is about. Even though this is a state-level office, Trump needs to disavow this guy.

Heller vs. Dem, NO DIFFERENCE. Heller is Never Trumper and PRO AMNESTY and PRO OBAMACARE. I WILL NOT VOTE FOR HIM. PERIOD. Even with Trump’s endorsement. Ain’t happening. And if Republicans lose the Senate because Heller loses, so be it. We must draw the line and reject Never Trumper and especially Pro Amnesty, Pro ObamaCare RINO Republicans.

The pimp is NOT in Washoe county. He’s in Lyon county.

Hard to be upset with him in office, after watching Ted Kennedy say there for nearly half a century.

LOL! I know where Pahrump is. Attended a day long course at FrontSight there years back. Well, it’s near Pahrump. For sure Trump does NOT need to endorse him.

He won the primary. He is now the Republican candidate. You are now saying you would rather have the Democrat win, than have a Republican office-holder whose legal business is not to your liking. That's what a bunch of Never-Trumpers were saying in 2016.

Yes, if that is the result, yes. We should not be supporting prostitution, selling out values, especially as the people here on FR pimping this pimp say is fine since it personally reduces their taxes. No, wrong is wrong. Pay hire taxes if that is the cost of be moral, ethical, conservative, and Christian.

This pimp and anyone pimping for him should be disavowed and booted from the party.

Are you a woman, or a democrat?

??? What does this have to do with objecting to prostitution? Or, for those pimping the pimp, to say that it is okay because it generates tax revenue so they personally benefit with lower taxes? Is that a Republican, conservative, or Christian position?

And, no, I'm not a woman, not a Democrat.

You could have fooled me.

Assigning reasons and motives to those who disagree is usually a pretty good indicator.

So what, his actions were legal in the county where he ran his business. It’s not like he broke the law, lied about it to the public and FBI, and then got a pass from Comey.

I am tiring of this discussion. Prostitution is wrong, FR does not support or promote prostitution. In several threads on FR several people, maybe you, are promoting it, saying it is legal, that you benefit from it because it means you pay lower taxes, etc. I've asked how this is conservative, Christian, Republican, etc. I ask how one reconciles selling out their values to benefit from prostitution through the tax savings. All we get are lame insults.

If people are going to post these articles, engage in discussion, promote prostitution, sell out values, then defend that without insults. Explain how it is right.

And, as well, explain how this doesn't, by association, stain FR and conservatives, Christians, and Republicans. No, you can't, no one has. We and everyone should disavow prostitution, reject Hof.
