Yes, yes. I know. Folks want to see Aaron Schock in an orange jumpsuit paraded before the cameras.
But I want to know: What federal crimes is chock accused of committing. If there is, cite the statute.
Certainly he is accused of violating the rules of being a Congressman. But now that he will no longer BE a congressman, where are the violations. He certainly won’t be investigated by the Office of Congressional Ethics anymore. They are an independent group that investigates sitting congressmen on whether they violated Congress members for violating Congressional rules on how Congress people behave.
A lot of what Aaron Schock did seems crappy, and certainly not the sort of thing one wants their Congressman to do, but is there anything that was ILLEGAL?
There may be fast-and-loose ways money went from campaign coffers to Schock’s hands. And the accusations of Schock getting rich with the help of people he supposedly did political favors for … THAT may be a violation of the law, but there’s no investigations there that I am aware of
