Congressman Schock under investigation by ethics committee, Congressman Davis also named in report
WASHINGTON D.C.-- The House Ethics Committee says it will continue an investigation into U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Peoria) over allegations the Illinois Republican sought donations of more than $5,000 per donor to a super political action committee.
The committee on Wednesday also released a report on Shock's case from the Office of Congressional Ethics.
The Office of Congressional Ethics also listed Rep. Rodney Davis as a “non-cooperating witness” in its investigation into how funds flowed into the PAC, the Campaign for Primary Accountability.
Last week Schock, a Peoria congressman, made headlines when he hinted at a possible run for governor in 2014.
Schock’s communications director Steve Dutton said there is no base to the investigation as ethics complaints can be issued by anyone for any reason.
