Here is some additional info about Aaron Schock’s trip to New York City
The Sun-Times reported Monday that 10 Schock staffers went to New York last September on a $10,053 taxpayer-funded trip where most of them had few official duties during a weekend stay at the Palace Hotel.
It turns out there is at least one more.
Federal Election Commission reports show a November payment of $1,005 from Schock’s GOP Generation Y political action committee to the Palace Hotel. A Schock spokesman confirmed that check covered expenses for Schock political director Karen Haney’s weekend in New York.
So, the trip was absolutely 100 percent legitimate government work, which is why Schock billed taxpayers. Or, the trip was about getting his ass re-elected, so he brought his political director.
It’s as clear as mud.
