Aaron Schock Apparently Files For New US House Bid

LGBTQ Nation reports:

The scandal-ridden former Representative Aaron Schock (R-IL) appears to be preparing to run for office again. Schock served as a U.S. Representative from Illinois from 2009 to 2015, when he resigned in disgrace after being accused of misusing campaign and public funds.

He was the subject of a congressional ethics investigation and was indicted by a federal grand jury. Federal prosecutors dropped charges earlier this year in exchange for paying $110,000 in restitution and taxes.

A Statement of Organization was filed last week with the Federal Election Commission for the “Schock for Congress” campaign. Schock is listed as the campaign treasurer, even though the campaign has no funds, according to a separate filing.

When asked earlier this year about launching an attempt to return to Congress, where he voted against every LGBT-related bill before him, Schock simply told CBS News, “Never say never.”

As most of you surely know, Schock was photographed partying with muscular gay men at Coachella and hitting on a young man poolside at a West Hollywood hotel. He’s yet to respond publicly to being outed.
