SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake County Mayor Nancy Workman is facing heavy questioning over whether she misused public money.

Workman answered questions before a bipartisan panel of prosecutors for more than two hours yesterday.

The panel is investigating Workman who used about 18-thousand dollars in public funds to create a job for a nonprofit Boys and Girls Club, where her daughter is the chief financial officer.

The panel is deciding if the mayor misused public money or skirted hiring procedures.

Workman maintains the hiring was a paperwork mistake, not a criminal one.

The panel was appointed by prosecutor David Yocom in June after he was accused of playing politics. The panel did not make a decision yesterday and they plan to meet again soon.
