House records show Schock reimbursed US $122,590
CHICAGO (AP) — 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.
The government also received more than $1,200 for a commercial flight Schock took from Peoria to Chicago to attend a Bears game.
Schock resigned in March following media reports about his spending.
