GOP Activist Who Campaigned for Famous Pimp in Nevada Assembly Votes for Sanders to Get 'Dream Election' Against Trump

A Republican activist has described how he temporarily re-registered as a Democrat in order to vote for Bernie Sanders in the Nevada caucus to help set up a "dream" 2020 election against Donald Trump.

Chuck Muth told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he took advantage of the Nevada Democratic Party's same-day voter registration policy to choose his ideal candidate.

"I was in and out in 10 minutes. You can register, same day registration, change your party, vote in the caucus, and then the next day, you can switch back if you want," he said.

Muth was previously the campaign manager for Nevada pimp Dennis Hof's bid for State Assembly.

Hof, a famous brothel owner who appeared in HBO's reality TV series Cathouse, managed to win a seat to represent Nevada's Assembly District 36 despite dying weeks before the voting began.

The day before the New Hampshire primaries, Trump encouraged his followers to briefly move over to the Democrats in order to vote for who they believe is the weakest candidate.

"You have crossovers in primaries, don't you? I hear a lot of Republicans tomorrow will vote for the weakest candidate possible of the Democrats," Trump told the crowd.

"Does that make sense? My only problem is I'm trying to figure out who is their weakest candidate, I think they're all weak."

Muth said he does not want Sanders to become the Democratic nomination for this reason, but because it would set up the most fascinating contest.

"I want Bernie to be the nominee and a lot of people think it's because he would be the easiest to beat or he was the weakest candidate," Muth said. "I don't believe it.

"I want Bernie to be the nominee because it would be a real clear contrast between an avowed socialist and what that means for this country and an avowed capitalist and what that would mean for the country.

"It would be a dream election," Muth added. "The nightmare would be if Sanders won, of course. But, look, if Bernie Sanders can beat Donald Trump, we've already lost it."

Stewart Boss, communications director for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, dismissed Muth's tactics.

"To be clear: Chuck Muth is a joke and literally nothing in entrance polls indicates this was in any way common or had real impacts on overall caucus results," he tweeted.

Nevada's Democratic Party said that more than 10,000 people in the state signed up to register to vote for the party during the four days of early voting prior to the caucus.

"It's clear that we are bringing a wave of new voters into our party and building a growing coalition who will mobilize for our nominee in November," said Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II. "This is how we beat Donald Trump and elect Democrats up and down the ticket in 2020."

Sanders' campaign team has been contacted for comment.
