  9. Schock donor wants donations backRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Apr 16 | Capitol Hill Blue

    Former U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock's legal problems expanded Wednesday as a contributor sued to force the repayment of millions of campaign dollars, saying he was tricked into believing the young lawmaker who has since resigned amid questions about his spending was "a breath of fresh air" in a corruption-riddled state. The unusual lawsuit filed by Howard Foster, a Chicago lawyer who pitched in just $500 to Schock, cites Illinois' long history of political and financial shenanigans - from a pre-Civil War governor to former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s recent prison term for misusing campaign funds - and plants Schock among them in claiming his fundraising arm was a corrupt racket.
