New details come out with Aaron Schock saga

Posted by wlpo on November 21, 2016

CHICAGO (AP) – More accusations are surfacing against former Congressman Aaron Schock.

The Republican is accused of allegedly using government and campaign money to subsidize a lavish lifestyle, as well as pocketing thousands of constituents’ dollars. An indictment unveiled this month says the 35-year-old hosted annual Washington tours and meet-and-greets, charged a special fee and secretly kept some of the cash. He’s also caught flack for spending thousands of dollars to decorate his office in the style of “Downton Abbey.”

Schock said in a Nov. 10 statement responding to the indictment that “we might have made errors” but that “no one intended to break any law.”
