UNSCHOCKING: Homocon Aaron Schock Comes Out

Posted today to Schock’s Instagram page:

I am gay. For those who know me and for many who only know of me, this will come as no surprise. For the past year, I have been working through a list of people who I felt should finally hear the news directly from me before I made a public statement.

The fact that I am gay is just one of those things in my life in need of explicit affirmation, to remove any doubt and to finally validate who I am as a person. In many ways I regret the time wasted in not having done so sooner.

Once in Congress, I did like I’d always done and threw myself into the distraction of work and what I once understood success to be. That included being responsive to the interests of the constituents in the distract that I served.

Perhaps correctly, perhaps not, I assumed that revealing myself as their gay congressman would not go over well. I put my ambition over the truth, which not only hurt me, but others as well. I also, in retrospect, realize that I was jut looking for more excuses to buy time and avoid being the person I’ve always been.

The post goes on for several self-pitying pages. Schock is apparently currently dating circuit party promoter Eliad Cohen, judging from multiple pictures seen on social media. Today’s formal coming comes after Schock’s X-rated Grindr videos and selfies were widely circulated.
