Voter reactions to Schock(ing) spending

Congressman Aaron Schock was first known for his fast rise in politics and his fabulous abs. Inside GOP circles, he’s become known for his ability to make a lot of money for the national party and his fellow Republicans. But over the last few weeks, stories of lavish spending and a Kardashian-esque lifestyle have dogged the representative from the 18th district. But while the national media may be enthralled with tales of fancy cars, trips, and hotels, it’s what his constituents think that’s most important. Phil Luciano, columnist for the Peoria Journal Star tells us how the stories are playing down on Main Street. (Filckr/Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission)
