One of the quirky news stories of Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign was the support Paul received from Nevada brothel owner Dennis Hof and some of Hof’s employees. In Nevada, brothels may be legally operated in several counties.
Hof since entered elective politics himself, in June defeating an incumbent in a Republican primary race for the Nevada state Assembly.
Hof died this week.
Asked in a Reason interview about Hof’s support for Paul, Hof described himself as a libertarian and discussed the importance of states’ rights, making your own decisions, and a “live and let live” outlook.
