Hooker Honey Traps Sting Utah Politicians? Salt Lake City Worries


Utah’s male state lawmakers have been told to never walk alone and use a “buddy system” to avoid being snared by, possibly, politically motivated, prostitutes.

'We feel like it's appropriate at this time to put everybody on alert there may be people with mal-intent that are trying to, for money, try to put us in a situation,' Republican Senate President Wayne Niederhauser told reporters and Senate leadership, Feb. 9.

Niederhauser’s warning after a call girl, Brie Taylor, told the Daily Mail Utah state Rep. Jon Stanard (R) twice paid her for sex in Salt Lake City in 2017, while he was staying in taxpayer or campaign-funded hotel rooms.

But it wasn’t the Stanard scandal alone that prompted Niederhauser’s warning. He sounded the alarm because of something that happened to a fellow Republican, Sen. Evan Vickers after the news about Stanard broke.

Vickers told reporters a woman tried to “honeypot” him in one of the hotels where Stanard allegedly had sex with Taylor.

“I opened the door and there was a young lady standing there and she said 'Hi,' and I said, 'Hi, who are you?' And she said, 'I'm your date.' I said, 'No, you're not.' She said, 'Yes, I'm your date.’”

"She was standing in front of the elevator and I said, 'I don’t know who you are and what you’re doing here,' and she said, 'No, you don’t understand. I’m your date.' I said, 'No I’m not and walked back into the room,'" Vickers said.

Vickers said he locked the door and called a fellow legislator for help. He also called hotel security who have been unable to find the woman. Vickers said hotel employees are reviewing a security videotape.

As Deseret News columnist Jay Evensen speculated, it could be the young lady, who Vickers said looked to be in her 30s just knocked on the wrong door, or maybe she was prospecting for a customer, hoping to get lucky. But maybe, just maybe, she’d been hired by a media organization or some other group with nefarious intent.

"I believe that this was more of a setup and I also believe Sen. Vickers was caught by surprise," House Majority Whip Francis Gibson (R), told Fox 13.

One unnamed lawmaker told UtahPolicy.com that he has seen women who are “dressed provocatively” hanging around the hotel where he stays while the legislature is in session, but he was never concerned until the Daily Mail ran the Stanard story.

It isn’t just GOP lawmakers who are concerned by the prospect of hookers prowling hotel hallways trying to ensnare honest politicians.

Senate Minority Leader Gene David (D) said he was “shocked.”

Sen. Niederhauser called the cops. He said Salt Lake City police and the Utah Highway Patrol were notified. He also tried to throw some cold water on Brie Taylor’s story of sex with Rep. Stanard because questions have been raised about whether she was paid by the Daily Mail.

"When people can make money like this it attracts malintent," Niederhauser said.
