Schock resigns amidst growing scandal

    Congressman Aaron Schock announced his resignation Tuesday as more reports of alleged spending misconduct surfaced.
    According to POLITICO, Schock said in a statement, "[T]he constant questions over the last six weeks have proven a great distraction that has made it too difficult for me to serve the people of the 18th District with the high standards that they deserve and which I have set for myself. I have always sought to do what’s best for my constituents, and I thank them for the opportunity to serve.”
