Rep. Aaron Schock needs a crash course in campaign finance laws.
The Illinois Republican asked House Majority Leader Eric Cantor to donate $25,000 to a super PAC supporting an Illinois colleague. Federal law bars members of Congress from soliciting individual donations to super PACs larger than $5,000.
Rep. Schock’s campaign committee reimbursed him for personal expenses, including a set of P90X workout DVDs and a stay at a five-star luxury hotel in Athens.
