More potential problems for Republican Aaron Schock

Posted by wlpo on February 24, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) – A Congressman representing Marshall and Woodford County among other places is in more hot water.

According to the Associated Press, Republican Aaron Schock spent taxpayer and campaign funds on private planes to fly around the country on planes owned by some of his donors. The AP report says they tracked his Instagram account pictures to see where all he was travelling. There also were other travel and entertainment charges, including for a massage company and concerts like Katy Perry.

Schock’s use of congressional and political funds raises new questions amid an ethics inquiry already underway. He’s still facing questions over decorating expenses for his Washington office in the theme of the TV show “Downton Abbey.”

His office declined to comment on his expenses yesterday.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
