Via the Salt Lake Tribune, your tax dollars hard at work:
Taxpayers paid for two hotel stays that former Rep. Jon Stanard, R-St. George, allegedly used for a tryst with a prostitute.
Greg Hartley, chief of staff for the Utah House, said Friday that records show the state paid for hotel rooms at the Fairfield Inn in Salt Lake City on exact dates that a call girl told the Daily Mail of London that Stanard paid her $250 apiece for two one-hour sessions of sex.
“We do have hotel receipts,” he said. Hartley provided copies, showing that the state paid $112.60 for each of the two days hotel charge.
Stanard resigned abruptly on Tuesday, two days before the British newspaper published its allegations.
I heard he resigned abruptly in order to take a job in the White House.
