‘Family Values’ Conservative Lawmaker Used Taxpayer Money Repeatedly To Pay For A Hooker

Utah Rep. Jon Stanard (R)  resigned from the State Congress, citing “family reasons.” What he meant was “I was caught sleeping with a prostitute. Twice.”

The married conservative representative met with Brie Taylor, paying her $350 each time he required her services. Standard would rent a hotel room for them to meet in, and even asked her to bring “toys” and a “corset” to their “appointment.”

But it doesn’t just stop with having sex with a prostitute. The hotel rooms that Standard rented? They were paid for with taxpayer money. Utah House Chief of Staff Greg Harley told the Associated Press that Standard was reimbursed for the hotel rooms in Salt Lake City.  The March 10th expense report listed $1,510 for “extra hotel expense session lodging” at the “Marriott Residence.”

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

But for some reason, Hughes isn’t sure yet if the House will ask Standard to return the money.

“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.”

They’re not sure if getting a hotel room to have sex with a hooker while his wife is at home with their three children counts as abusing public funds.

And the House can’t even launch an ethics investigation on him because he resigned and left the state right before the story broke.

Stanard said, “My father has terminal cancer and I am going to spend a few weeks with him out of state while I still can.” If this is true, he just used his dying father to try and escape a prostitution scandal.

To make this even more ironic, Stanard voted to increase prostitution penalties to $2,500.

“I am a strong advocate for conservative family values. I am pro-life, as well as for traditional marriage,” Stanard’s website once said.
