When asked about the claims made by Lowe and other women, Hof dismissed the accusations, stating that he was too busy campaigning to bother with ‘these absurd allegations.’
The self-styled ‘Trump of Pahrump’  previously released a statement via his website denying Jennifer O’Kane’s claims and accusing her of attempting to frustrate his bid for election.
In his memoir, The Art of the Pimp, Hof boasted of sleeping with more than 4,000 women and admitted that he insists on ‘trying out’ every girl who works for him.
His accusers – Lowe , O’Kane and Grandmaison, all claims it was not always consensual, with the pimp routinely forcing women into sex.

The women claim he insists on being known as ‘Daddy D’ and would often order the girls to have sex with his friends for a cut-price fee of $300.
All three claim he views the women working in his brothels as ‘possessions’ – once even telling O’Kane ‘that f***ing p***y belongs to me’ as he raped her.
Lowe, who worked for Hof between 2006 and 2012, eventually rose through the brothel ranks to become a ‘trainer’ – an experienced prostitute who teaches newcomers how to behave, work in the line-up and negotiate with men.
The 55-year-old, who now lives in Kansas, says Hof attacked her within days of her arrival at the Love Ranch North but says she felt unable to go to the police for fear of not being believed.
‘I had just flown in [to Carson City], I was going to see the doctor the next day,’ she said. ‘You get your results 24 hours later, then you see the sheriff and get your card.’
A car took Lowe through the mountains to the ranch, where she met Hof.

Diana Grandmaison, 58, says she was sexually assaulted by Hof in the bar at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch in June 2009, while Jennifer O’Kane, 47, says Hof began attacking her within days of her arrival at the Love Ranch South, where she was known as ‘Carmen Lee’, in December 2010.

According to the police report quoted O’kane complained that thereafter she was ‘raped and battered daily’ by the pimp.

She told police ‘[The first time] I walked in the house. He said let’s go upstairs. And he raped me,’ Lowe claims.

‘It was violent, choking me, grabbing me by the hair. Suck my d*** you b***h. We had sex, no condom.’
According to Lowe, Hof went on to attack her on 10 further occasions and says she finally walked out after an incident in which he allegedly choked her in the kitchen of Love Ranch North.
Lowe said: ‘I remember we were in the kitchen and he grabbed me by the throat, and said, ‘Where the f*** have you been?’ I’d had enough.
‘I’d had enough of girls crying, coming into my room and saying this isn’t fair. I believe he rapes and intimidates and tells the new girls, welcome to my ranch but this is how it’s going to be.
‘This is what you will do. You will service my customers and you will service me as well. For free. With no condom.’
O’Kane, who now lives in Texas, claims that Hof began attacking her within days of her arrival at the Love Ranch South, where she was known as ‘Carmen Lee’, in December 2010.
She says she and another new recruit were taken to dinner by Hof during her first week in Crystal but claims on her return to the brothel, she was ordered to go to her room.
Waiting for her there was Hof who allegedly put his hands around her neck and ordered her to undress before violently raping her.
‘I froze,’ he said to his new employee.
‘He told me that I belonged to him, he said, “That f***ing pussy belongs to me.

‘He said get undressed and I got undressed. It was so violent that I didn’t know what to do, what to say. During it, I said, “Please stop, I don’t want this, why are you doing this?”
‘He said “you’re mine” and he smacked me. He made comments, he said I was the oldest one he’d been with in a long time. ‘Then he anally raped me. He said his girlfriend doesn’t do it so I do it.’

uzanne Palmiere 2.pngO’Kane’s close friend Suzanne Palmiere, [left], of Redondo Beach, California, confirmed that Jennifer would often call her in tears after allegedly suffering an assault.
Between January 2011 and May 2011 when O’Kane left his brothel, Hof raped her repeatedly, at least once or twice a week, the sex worker claims.
Palmiere said: ‘Jennifer began working at the brothel on December 31 and almost immediately, she called me and said: I just don’t like this. I’m being forced to sleep with him. He wants me, he doesn’t want anybody else.
‘I said, well just say no. And she said, I can’t just say no. I just can’t – I can’t say no. Things escalated from there.
‘She called me maybe six times in the beginning to let me know this was going on, that she was being raped, that she was having sex against her will with her boss.’
O’Kane says she attempted to complain to the police in Pahrump, Nevada, in February 2011 but was allegedly not believed.
She filed a second police report in October 2016 but the District Attorney declined to prosecute, saying the statute of limitations had expired.
Fifty-eight-year-old Grandmaison, who now lives in Florida, says she was sexually assaulted by the Hof in the bar at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch in June 2009.

Diana Grandmaison 2.jpgFormer porn star turned sex worker, Grandmaison recounts the day Hof allegedly assaulted her at the bar at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, ‘He grabbed me with his hand on my genitals, holding onto it and holding me to him, he wouldn’t stop. – ‘ I was to just stand there and let him finish doing what he was doing to me and it was in front of everybody who was in the brothel at the time’

Former porn star, Diane Grandmaison. aka ‘Desi Foxx’, was initially recruited into sex work in Fort Lauderdale and lived in Los Angeles for a year before becoming disillusioned with the adult acting industry.
On her 49th birthday, she joined Hof’s Moonlite Bunny Ranch on March 18 2009.
She says the burly brothel owner initially seemed charming but soon showed his darker side, insisting on overseeing everything from what she wore to what she ate.
Like Lowe and O’Kane, Grandmaison says the women were expected to work 12 hour shifts six days a week and follow the rules set down in the ‘Bunny Bible’ – the in-house guidebook given to workers.

But her worst moment came in June 2009 at the hands of Hof, when she claims he assaulted her at the bar, in punishment for refusing to have sex with a client off property.
‘We were back at the Bunny Ranch and we were kind of partying – everybody was drinking a little bit,’ she recalled. ‘It was kind of a slow night.’
‘Dennis was sitting at the bar and I went up to the end of the bar to get a drink and he called me round the corner to him.
‘I walked over to him and at that point, he reached up under my negligee skirt that I had and proceeded to touch me inappropriately under my dress.
‘I kind of just laughed at it, pushed him off and tried to pull away and he grabbed me with his hand on my genitals, holding onto it and holding me to him – he wouldn’t stop.
‘At that point, I was to just stand there and let him finish doing what he was doing to me and it was in front of everybody who was in the brothel at the time.’

Diane Fowler aka, Sunset Thomas 1.jpgFowler [photo], claims Hof ‘verbally and mentally’ abused her during their relationship between 2001 and 2004
These allegations are not the only times that the 71-year-old has faced allegations over his behavior towards women.
In 2015, his former girlfriend Diane Fowler – known by the stage name Sunset Thomas – petitioned for an order of protection against him in Monticello, Arkansas, and claimed he ‘verbally and mentally’ abused her during their relationship between 2001 and 2003.
The order of protection was granted, but allowed to lapse after six months.
She also claimed that after she left Nevada in 2013, he began a campaign of intimidation aimed at coercing her back into his brothel business and submitted a recording of one of his phone rants to court, in which he said ‘I will have to do what I have to do’ if she didn’t return.
Forty-six-year-old Fowler,  46, said h er former paramour’s behavior had left her fearful and said she just wanted to be left alone.
Another ex-girlfriend, Cami Parker, 29, described him as belittling and told how he would constantly nag her to ‘fix’ her looks, which ultimately left her with an eating disorder: ‘
He loves to hurt and confuse women,’ Parker, who now lives in Vancouver, Canada, said in an interview. – ‘He even bragged about sleeping with a girl one minute after her legal birthday and then putting her right to work, as if this is something real men brag about.
‘He would even tell me that at 23, I was too old for him, since girls over 21 are no good anymore, anyways’, Hof was 65 at the time.
When she finally did decide to leave Parker said, Hof invited brothel manager Madam Suzette to her room to rub [the hurt] in with a rendition of the song ‘Another One Bites The Dust’.
‘I feel like all these years later, I’m still trying to escape him. Dennis is a liar. Every single word that comes out of his mouth is bulls***’, Parker recalls.
‘All that fake bravado, all that nonsense about how Bunny Ranch is so wonderful and everybody’s so happy there. It’s a lie.’
