An Alberta politician caught in a prostitution sting while in Minnesota on a government trip is being allowed back into the Progressive Conservative caucus.
Caucus whip George VanDerBurg says Fort McMurray-Wood Buffalo member of the legislature Mike Allen has been accepted back after a secret-ballot vote by government members.
In 2013, Allen pleaded guilty in St. Paul, Minn., to a misdemeanour after he contacted officers who had posted a fake online ad for escorts.
Police reported Allen met a pair of female undercover officers and agreed to pay about $200 for sex.
Allen was removed from caucus and a U.S. judge ordered him to pay $1,000 in fines and penalties.
Allen did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
