Former Illinois Valley lawmaker federally indicted

Posted by wlpo on November 11, 2016

WASHINGTON (AP) – Aaron Schock’s attorney says a federal indictment against the former Illinois congressman doesn’t indicate he did anything to corrupt his office.

The 52-page indictment alleges Schock spent government funds to redecorate his Washington office and asked the U.S. House to reimburse him for nearly $30,000 worth of camera equipment. It also accuses him of running up a $140,000 mileage tab over six years. Schock says he never intentionally did anything wrong.

Schock resigned early last year. He represented Marshall and Putnam Counties while a congressman.
