And it begins: The Office of Congressional Ethics begins investigating Aaron Scchock

And it begins:

Investigators from the Office of Congressional Ethics have begun reaching out to Rep. Aaron Schock’s political orbit, a possible first sign of an official investigation of the Illinois Republican.

OCE is seeking to speak to people who have either worked for Schock or interacted with him.

A spokesman for Schock did not respond to questions about whether the Illinois Republican has been contacted by — or is cooperating with — OCE. A spokesman for OCE also had no comment.

Schock has been under intense scrutiny in recent weeks for a litany of issues regarding his spending of campaign and taxpayer dollars. POLITICO and the Chicago Sun-Times have documented sloppy accounting and lavish spending in Schock’s operations.
