Schock Reimburses Government for Lavish Spending
Former Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock has reimbursed the U.S. government for the cost of auto mileage, office redecoration and a flight to Chicago Bears game.
Disbursement records released Friday by the U.S. House show Schock repaid the federal government $122,590 during his final months in office.
Among the repayments was more than $86,000 Schock received for mileage reimbursement expenses over six years ending in 2014.
The government was also reimbursed $35,000 in payments made to Illinois interior decorator Ann Brahler. She redecorated Schock's congressional office in bright red, described as "Downton Abbey" style after the television show.
