SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Salt Lake County mayor's office is expected to issue a statement today responding to the findings of an investigative panel.

The panel of attorneys issued a statement this morning saying there's enough evidence to charge Mayor Nancy Workman with two counts of misusing public money.

The panel was appointed by the district attorney to investigate Workman for using about 18-thousand dollars in Health Department funds to hire a bookkeeper for the nonprofit Boys and Girls Club, where her daughter is the chief financial officer.

Workman's attorney denies she violated any laws and says the county made a practice of using taxpayer funds to help nonprofit and charitable organizations.

Formal charges have not been filed.
