Brothel Owner Explains Why Evangelical Christians Supported Him In Nevada GOP Primary Win
Dennis Hof, who owns the notorious Bunny Ranch and other brothels in Nevada, credited Christian evangelicals for his GOP primary victory over Republican state lawmaker James Oscarson in June.
Hof told The Hill’s program “Rising” that conservative Christians are rallying to his side because of the “Trump train”:
It’s the Trump train. It’s the movement… They did the same thing for Hof. Because I can’t be bossed, I can’t be bought.
Hof added that Trump “paved the way” for his state primary victory:
He paved the way and I am glad he did it, because my goal is to knock out the Republicans in name only. I hate liars, I hate hypocrites, and I hate these paper blade politicians.
Hof said that once evangelical supporters meet him, they overcome their discomfort with his prostitution business:
Once they meet me … they understand that I’m going to work for them, I’m not going to work for special interests.
Pastor Victor Fuentes explained his support for the well-known pimp during an interview with Reuters in June:
People want to know how an evangelical can support a self-proclaimed pimp. We have politicians, they might speak good words, not sleep with prostitutes, be a good neighbor. But by their decisions, they have evil in their heart. Dennis Hof is not like that.
