The House Ethics Committee says it will continue an investigation into U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock over allegations the Illinois Republican sought donations of more than $5,000 per donor to a super political action committee.
The committee made the announcement on Wednesday, while also releasing a report on Shock's case from the Office of Congressional Ethics, a separate, outside ethics office.
The ethics case is focused on an allegation Schock asked Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor to contribute $25,000 from his leadership PAC to a super PAC that backed Rep. Adam Kinzinger. Kinzinger was running in a House primary against Rep. Don Manzullo. Kinzinger won the March 2012 primary.
Schock spokesman Steve Dutton says Schock hasn't done anything wrong and says the case is "without merit."
