Schock pays government back for auto mileage

SHARE Schock pays government back for auto mileage

WASHINGTON — Former Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Ill., the subject of a federal criminal investigation, repaid the federal government about $89,000 he received in auto mileage, new House disbursement records released on Friday reveal.

The latest House records cover the period from Jan. 1, 2015, to March 31.

Schock resigned on March 31 after stories in the Sun-Times and other outlets raised questions about how he was spending government and taxpayer money. Public records showed that Schock put in for more miles than his Chevy Tahoe was driven.

The reimbursements Schock paid cover several years.

A grand jury in Springfield investigating Schock will continue hearing from witnesses next week.

FBI and IRS agents are investigating Schock’s mileage claims on government and campaign accounts, his use of private planes and his relationships with his donors.

The Sun-Times reported on Thursday  that a former staffer who flew with the lawmaker on a jet owned by a corporation later warned Schock’s chief of staff that the flight may have violated federal laws and House ethics rules.
