Michael "Mike" Horner (born January 8, 1968 in Jacksonville, Florida) is an American politician and a former Republican member of the House of Representatives of the U.S. state of Florida.[1] He abruptly resigned his seat on September 24, 2012, when his name surfaced on the client list of an Orange County, Florida brothel owner, who is currently facing racketeering and prostitution charges.[2][3]

Horner graduated with a Bachelor's degree from the University of Florida in 1989. He then went on to graduate school at the University of Central Florida, and graduated with a Master's in Public Administration in 1995. He currently lives in Kissimmee, Florida with his family.

In 2012, Horner resigned from the Florida House of Representatives after his name surfaced on a list of clients in evidence against an accused prostitution ring leader. In his resignation statement, Horner said "I deeply regret decisions I made that are causing my family unjustifiable pain and embarrassment."
