Arizona House Speaker Kirk Adams says he found the allegations in the Fiesta Bowl scandal so disturbing that he reimbursed the bowl for its costs in sending him and his wife to an out-of-state football game.

The speaker says Thursday that he paid the bowl $1,064 for the costs of travel, lodging and tickets to a 2007 BYU-UCLA game in Pasadena, Calif.

Adams says he was mortified by the allegations against the bowl and simply wanted to reimburse the bowl.

Adams is the seventh state lawmaker to reimburse the bowl for gifts they received.

A report released last week disclosed a wide array of improper or questionable spending by bowl officials and that numerous lawmakers accepted tickets to sporting events and accepted free trips paid for by the bowl.
