Dennis Hof, a Nevada brothel owner and reality TV star who died last month, won an election for Nevada's 36th Assembly District Tuesday night, the Nevada Secretary of State's office said.
Hof, who ran as a Republican, defeated Democratic challenger Lesia Romanov by more than 7,000 votes, the office said.

Just needs more Vi Agra to bring him back to serve. Although he might be stiff enough already.

NY Republicans also reelected Chris Collins, who will be going to the slammer (well, actually some cushy Club Fed) for securities fraud soon in any rational universe.

Republicans would vote for the devil himself if he had an “R” by his name. And then piss and moan and whine about how unfair it is that people assume they’re racist/xenophobic/stupid/evil just because they voted that way.

Assuming he’s not going to show up for work, what happens now?

Someone will be appointed to take his place. Maybe a drug dealer or a real estate con man from New York.

You are just jealous to lose the monopoly on electing dead bodies, pdq.
This used to be a Democratic specialty....

How many of the votes that he got were also from dead people? It's an important demographic that he's trying to attract.

Carnahan: Died shortly before election and his wife ran in his place (and was elected)
Begich: Flight he was on disappeared shortly before election - plane and passengers never found, and eventually declared dead (after the election)
Boggs: on same plane as Begich
Miller: WW2 vet, plane crash in October before election.

So, only one of these were actually elected posthumously, and that one goes back to 1962. Boy, between this and, say, Paul Wellstone, Dem politicians sure do have bad luck in October before elections, huh?

Edit: OMG! Guess how Carnahan died? Another plane crash, in mid October, in an election year. That makes 4 out of 4, and Wellstone makes 5. I didn’t realize it before, but holy smokes, (incumbent) Dem candidates seem to have really, really, really bad luck in small planes just before elections.

Thanks for pointing this out, max!

Nope, pdq, no matter how you try to twist it, that is a lie.
It was dead Carnahan:that was elected. His wife did not run in his place, she was appointed to the seat the dead man won...

A Senate first, Carnahan posthumously won, by a 2% margin. Jean Carnahan was then appointed to the Senate and served until November 2002, when she was defeated by a 1% margin in a special election by Republican James Talent.
The inconvenient fact remains, pdq, another dead Democrat won an election...

Begich: Flight he was on disappeared shortly before election - plane and passengers never found, and eventually declared dead (after the election)
Yes, plane crash 3 weeks before election, Alaska in October, everybody knew he was a dead corpusicle.
Again, no matter how you try to spin it, pdq, the inconvenient fact remains, another dead Democrat won an election...

Boggs: on same plane as Begich
Once more, no matter how you try to spin it, the fact is, pdq, another dead Democrat won an election....

Yep, it still does not change the inconvenient facts, pdq, another dead Democrat won an election....

Nope, pdq, all five listed here "were actually elected posthumously". All five were all dead in by the first Tuesday in November
Winning an election after being dead means exactly that, electing dead bodies, five for five, here, pdq, no matter how they died, no matter how much you try to spin it....

You listed 4, not 5, max. And Begich and Boggs were not legally dead at the time of the election, which leaves two. And Missouri wouldn’t substitute Carnahan’s wife on the ballot at that late date, so a deal was made before the election that if “Carnahan” won, she’d end up in office, which she did. Which leaves the guy 56 years ago (who, FWIW, was not to my knowledge a brothel owner or “pimp” as he called himself, who left this mortal coil after a weekend of heavy partying, like the recently elected Republican worthy).

I was only trying, as usual, to fill in the rest of your carefully truncated stories, max. I guess it’s just my lot in life.

They were still all dead on the election day, pdq, and they were elected.
Dead Democrats, elected dead Democrats.
A fact.
Five for five.
It does not matter what kind of deal the Democratic Party made to keep their seats after their dead candidates won. it only means the fix was in. No matter how hard you are trying to justify it.
Yeah, "to fill in the rest of your carefully truncated stories,". Lets call your pathetic list of excuses for what they truly are, pdq.
The fix is a fix...

You could keep on going with the trend if you have the time...

As I posted in the lower thread on this item...

So, what does a voter do when the only candidate on the ballot they support dies (for whatever cause) immediately before election day?

- Cast their vote for the candidate they oppose just because that candidate is alive, thus helping that candidate receive sufficient votes to win?

- Not cast any vote for that office, such that the candidate they oppose will be the only one receiving sufficient votes?

- Cast their vote for the now-deceased candidate they had supported, to prevent the candidate they oppose from receiving sufficient votes?

--

(Write-in is not) a viable solution for replacing a recently-deceased candidate, as it would require the implementation - on short notice - of a truly effective strategy that resulted in all the deceased candidates supporters writing-in the SAME replacement candidate.

Otherwise the results would be no different than if the supporters had not voted for anyone for that office, or they had diluted their votes among various third-party candidates.

Realistically, in most cases, voting for the dead candidate you DID support will yield election results more acceptable to you than the other alternatives.
