Someone needs to give Rep. Schock a tutorial on campaign finance law, which makes it a crime for members of Congress to solicit $25,000 donations to super PACs.
In 2012, Rep. Schock asked House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) to match his $25,000 donation to the Campaign for Primary Accountability, a super PAC backing one of Rep. Schock’s colleagues from Illinois. Federal officeholders are prohibited by law from soliciting donations larger than $5,000 on behalf of a super PAC.
