LAS VEGAS (AP) - Associates of the late Nevada brothel owner Dennis Hof are preparing to revive the brothel industry’s political voice in Nevada.

The Nevada Brothel Association announced its formation Friday. The industry’s longtime lobbyist retired in 2015, leaving no unified voice for the state’s brothel owners.

The PAC filed with the Nevada Secretary of State’s office in November and named Suzette Cole, the manager of Hof’s four Lyon County brothels, as director.

Association spokesman Chuck Muth says a failed effort to outlaw brothels in Lyon County spurred the group’s formation. He says the association plans to fight a bill in the upcoming Nevada legislative session that proposed to end legal prostitution in the state.

The association plans to reach out to other brothel owners to join.



Hof died in October, weeks before he won a state Assembly election.
