ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A report from the New York Post claims former New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver used taxpayer dollars when undergoing affairs while in office.

The New York Post cites an unnamed politically connected source in its report. The report states Silver would use his travel per diem to pay for the rooms and dinners.

Janele Hyer-Spencer, a former assemblywoman, and lobbyist Patricia Lynch were each named as a mistress. Both women and Silver have denied the affairs.

The same political source said Hyer-Spencer was seen on multiple occasions leaving the ex-speaker’s hotel room.
