Taxpayer funds were used to pay for at least two hotel rooms that a Utah lawmaker who resigned this week is alleged to have used to meet up with a prostitute last year, according to records found by a state House of Representatives official.

DailyMail.com revealed exclusively on Thursday that Republican Rep. Jon Stanard, who is married with three kids, twice hired a prostitute in 2017. The allegations were a shock since Stanard preaches family values and has fought to get stricter solicitation laws.

After the report was published, House and state elections officials said they were checking to see if taxpayer or campaign money was used for Stanard’s hotel stays with the prostitute.

House Chief of Staff Greg Hartley told the Associated Press in a text message that Stanard, who resigned Tuesday night, was reimbursed for hotel stays in Salt Lake City in June and August 2017 when Stanard was attending legislative meetings at the state Capitol, four hours from his home in St. George.

‘It looks like they were legislative days,’ Republican House Speaker Greg Hughes told The Associated Press Thursday night.

Hughes said he didn’t yet know if the House would ask Stanard to return the hotel reimbursements.

‘If there has been an abuse of public funds or if public funds were used in a way that’s inappropriate, we would,’ Hughes 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.’
