Alberta Premier Alison Redford says she is “disgusted” by the arrest of a former Tory legislature member in a prostitution sting while on government business in the U.S.

Allen was arrested Monday night by police and faces a possible charge of soliciting a prostitute.

He has resigned from the governing Progressive Conservative caucus, but remains as an Independent MLA for Fort McMurray-Wood Buffalo.

Redford says Allen has written a cheque for all the expenses he occurred on the trip.

Redford made the comments after her annual K-Days breakfast in Edmonton.
