Rep. Aaron Schock Gets The Daily Show Treatment
So, a few weeks ago an innocuous "style" piece for the Washington Post brought to light the latest decor choices made by (totally not gay) Congressman Aaron Schock of Illinois.
Not exactly the kind of attention he was looking for probably, and it ended with his communications guy resigning (albeit for reasons in addition to handling the story badly).
But the story launched a look into his spending habits - spending money other than his own. And so, now there is a congressional inquiry/possible audit into some expenses that have been covered with inappropriate funds. Word comes now that he's lawyered up to handle the allegations.
With all that happening, it was inevitable that Jon Stewart would have to bring the handsome young congressman into focus on The Daily Show.
