Rep. Aaron Schock Announces His Resignation From Congress, Blaming "Questions" For His Decision

Questions. They're always ruining everything. Hillary Clinton could tell you all about it.

"Today, I am announcing my resignation as a Member of the United States House of Representatives effective March 31," Schock said in a statement. "I do this with a heavy heart. Serving the people of the 18th District is the highest and greatest honor I have had in my life. I thank them for their faith in electing me and letting me represent their interests in Washington. I have given them my all over the last six years. I have traveled to all corners of the District to meet with the people I've been fortunate to be able to call my friends and neighbors.

"But the constant questions over the last six weeks have proven a great distraction that has made it too difficultfor me to serve the people of the 18th District with the high standards that they deserve and which I have set for myself. I have always sought to do what’s best for my constituents and I thank them for the opportunity to serve," he said in a statement.

Schock had come under Question by Extremist Right Wingers for misrepresenting $3000 in costs for a private jet flight as a purchase of "software," and for his lavish $40,000 decoration of his congressional office.
