Aaron Schock Congress Illinois Mugshot

Dishonorable Mention

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.

  • Three-term member of Congress representing Illinois’ 18th district
  • Under investigation by the House Ethics Committee for illegally soliciting a $25,000 donation to a super PAC
  • Previously named to CREW’s Most Corrupt in 2012
  • One of two members of Congress from Illinois named to CREW’s Most Corrupt
  • Appeared in CREW’s Family Affair exposé
