This quote from Aaron Schock raised my level of gall:
One item that raised eyebrows was expenses at a luxury hotel in Greece. At an appearance in Peoria, Schock said to consider the source.
“All your viewers would need to do is google CREW, and they’re gonna see that it’s a left wing, George Soros funded group, whose goal it is to basically besmirch the character of any Republican office holder, that’s what they’ve done throughout the history of their organization,” said Schock.
OK, Congress. Point taken. Democrats point out the flaws in Republicans. And Republicans point out the flaws in Democrats. That’s the way politics works. But the fact is your flaws were there for this George-Soros-funded group to find in the first place.
Do you mind answering the question: What the HELL were you doing in Greece that caused you to think that you could pawn off this as a campaign expense? It was a mistake? It seems awfully mysterious that all these mistakes seemed to run toward putting campaign money in your pocket or the pockets of your friends and family.
And at the very least is shows a reluctance toward following the letter and spirit of campaign finance law. You have besmirched your own character by either running a sloppy campaign or by deliberately trying to get away with using campaign money as your personal slush fund.
But never mind. George Soros. Ooga booga.
