Anti-gay GOP ex-congressman Aaron Schock finally reveals if he'll run for congress again

Earlier this week, disgraced Republican ex-congressman Aaron Schock raised suspicions that he might be preparing for a political comeback after he filed a Statement of Organization with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for the “Schock for Congress” campaign. But Schock has finally revealed whether or not he’s going to run.

Basically the answer is no … for now.

Shock told the Journal Star that his FEC filing “does not signal an intent to run for his old 18th District seat.” The Journal Star explains:

Schock has kept his “Schock for Congress” campaign account active since his resignation in March 2015 and paid a series of legal bills out of it during a protracted investigation into his spending by federal prosecutors that the committee resolved earlier this year with an agreement to pay fines.

He said the recent filing on the account “simply changed the treasurer (position on the account) back to me.” … Schock said that “we don’t need a big third-party compliance firm like we had been using. They’re expensive.”

1. Darin LaHood, a Republican,

currently serves that district. He is conservative, but not that terrible.

His father Ray LaHood, was Obama's Secretary of Transportation. It is a republican area. We could do worse than the LaHoods.
