Anti-hooker lawmaker allegedly used taxpayer money for sex with escort

Quote:A Utah lawmaker who voted for tougher penalties for prostitution has resigned amid allegations that he used taxpayer dough to pay for hotel rooms to hook up with an online escort, according to reports.

The DailyMail.com quoted call girl Brie Taylor saying former GOP Rep. Jon Stanard paid her $250 for sex twice at the Fairfield Inn in Salt Lake City.

In one exchange from November, Stanard asks Taylor if she could bring any “accessories” or “toys” — perhaps a “corset,” according to the news outlet.

Taylor claimed he paid her $250 for each of the one-hour sessions in June and August 2017 during which she said she performed oral sex on him and that they had intercourse, the news site reported.

House chief of staff Greg Hartley told the Associated Press that the married Stanard — who resigned Tuesday night — was reimbursed for two hotel stays while he was attending legislative meetings at the state capital.

The dates and hotel names correspond with text messages reported by DailyMail.com.

“It looks like they were legislative days,” GOP House Speaker Greg Hughes said.

Hughes said he didn’t yet know if the House would ask Stanard to return the money, adding that officials had not had any contact from Stanard.

“If there has been an abuse of public funds or if public funds were used in a way that’s inappropriate, we would,” he said. “I don’t have solid answers for those things. I would need to have a way that I would know conclusively that that is the case.”

It was unclear if the House would be able to check whether Stanard used a state-issued cellphone to text Taylor, 39, because someone electronically wiped the phone, which no longer contains the messages.

The conservative pol, 43, who was elected to the Utah House of Representatives in 2012, has three children with his wife, LeeAnne.

Last year, he voted in favor of stricter laws on prostitution, including hiking the penalty for soliciting sex to $2,500.

“I am a strong advocate for conservative family values. I am pro-life, as well as for traditional marriage,” Stanard says on his website.

Stanard’s attorney Walter Bugden told the DailyMail.com: “Given the current climate in this country with misconduct allegations and the way things are happening in the media right now, there isn’t any explanation that my client could give that would overcome the shadow of these allegations.

“He has resigned his office.”

Stanard told the AP that he stepped down to spend time with his father, who has terminal cancer.
