The “hottest freshman in Congress” is about to get hotter, because he may be in hot water.
Republican Rep. Aaron Schock (Ill.), whose “musculature” and “body politic” garnered praise from Men’s Health in 2011, is being accused of using campaign funds to buy home workout DVDs.
Schock, 30, purchased the P90X “Extreme Home Fitness” DVDs during the 2010 election cycle and classified them as a “healthcare” expense.
The purchase was identified as campaign-related by mistake, and a later report was amended to reflect the error, Schock Chief of Staff Steve Shearer told The Associated Press.
To put it in workout terms, using campaign money for fitness DVDs is a bit of a stretch.
