GOP Posterboy Rep. Aaron Schock Busted Using Campaign Cash On Lavish Vacations & Gym Memberships

GOP Pin-up boy, fiscal conservative, and resident  “hottie on the outside, ugly as hell on the inside” Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL), has been BUSTED using campaign donations to reimburse himself for lavish vacations and meals around the world and of all things buying  “P90X” home fitness DVD’s

Watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) released a report Friday claiming that a Republican Illinois congressman misused campaign funds for lavish hotels, cash reimbursements for his mother and even exercise programs and equipment. CREW’s analysis found that 110 representatives have reimbursed themselves and 69 have reimbursed family members with campaign funding from the 2008 and 2011 election cycles.

Illinois’ Rep. Aaron Schock falls squarely in both camps, and was the only legislator from the state to make the top five list of politicians who reimbursed the most money with a $154,466 in payouts from his campaign coffers. According to CREW, that money covered expenses including nearly $50,000 for Schock’s own travel, meals and miscellaneous spending during the 2008 election cycle, and more than double that in 2010, including stays at five-star hotels in Athens, Greece and Miami.

Aaron Schock must be Chris Barron’s of GOProud’s hero and wet dream – a white conservative GOP closet case who cares more about his abs and showing them off  than politics and doing his job right,
