“Today, I informed the Chief Government Whip of a legal incident that I have been involved in,” Allen, the MLA for Fort McMurray-Wood Buffalo, said in a written statement.
“Pending resolution of this incident, I have resigned from the government caucus and all legislative committees effective immediately.”
According to St. Paul Police, undercover officers posted an ad for escort services in a local newspaper. Police allege that Allen answered the ad.
"He did meet with two vice personnel from our police department and made arrangements for a service," said Sgt. Paul Paulos, a spokesman with the St. Paul Police Department.
Allen was in St. Paul to attend a legislative conference.
