Subsequently, the House officials reviewed campaign finance reports of the state lawmaker to see if the money was used to pay for his tryst with the prostitute during his business trips.

Taylor is quoted in the Daily Mail article as saying Stanard's political stance is "hypocritical", saying she was surprised to learn he'd vote in favor of stricter laws against prostitution. Stanard resigned Tuesday evening but no explanations were given in the official statement.

House Chief of Staff Greg Hartley told The Associated Press that the Legislature reimbursed Stanard for hotel stays at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Salt Lake City in June and August 2017.

A former Utah lawmaker who abruptly resigned this week reportedly paid an escort for sex as recently as past year, according to a British tabloid.

A statement from Stanard's attorney, Walter Bugden, said "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".

It was unclear if the House would be able to check whether Stanard used a state-issued cellphone to text the prostitute and arrange encounters because someone electronically wiped the phone and it no longer contains his text messages.

Republican delegates in Stanard's St. George district will now have to choose his replacement, who will then be appointed by Gov. Gary Herbert.

Jimi Kestin, chairman of the Washington County Republican Party, said party leadership was working to confirm the appropriate process to replace Stanard and would move forward quickly.

The Associated Press reported that Stanard had texted that he was leaving to spend time with his father, who is terminally ill with cancer.

He did not offer additional information.

British newspaper the Daily Mail reported Thursday that text messages provided by the prostitute were from former Republican Rep. Jon Stanard.

Reports said Taylor viewed the resignation by the lawmaker as an inevitable outcome for his action.

The publication reviewed text messages from Taylor to gauge the veracity of her story and concluded Stanard did engage in sexual activities with her.

However, Daily Mail published a story with detailed accounts from prostitute, who claimed she had slept with Stanard on two occasions.

Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes announced Wednesday that Stanard had submitted his resignation, citing family reasons. What exactly and to the nature, I wasn't aware. "I had never heard anything, there was nothing in my interaction - I sit next to him on the House floor - nothing in my interaction that's ever suggesting anything even remotely close to what we're seeing today", McKell said.

Lee declined to say how far back in Stanard's reports they are looking.
