Republican representative Jon Stanard of St. George, Utah resigned suddenly. His claimed reasons for doing so were that he had family matters to deal with. However, the Daily Mail of London conducted an interview with a call girl. The prostitute claimed that Stanard had paid her $250 on two different occasions for one hour of sex. The prostitute claimed the two different sessions were conducted at the Fairfield Inn in Salt Lake City.
Receipts show that Stanard charged the rooms to the state thus having the tax payers of Utah pay for his sexual activities.
