Resigning Rep’s Dad: ‘He’ll Successful If He’s Not In Jail’
[su_right_ad]The father of resigning Congressman Aaron Schock has high hopes for his son.
“Two years from now he’ll be successful, if he’s not in jail,” Dr. Richard Schock told a reporter from Chicago’s ABC7 outside his home in Peoria, Ill. “If they’re going to convict him on paperwork, then they’re going to convict him. That’s their privilege. They’re out to get him and they’re making issues out of things that really shouldn’t be issues.”
Schock’s departure means that a congressional inquiry into his well-documented spending habits will be dropped, though a criminal investigation is still possible. Dr. Schock said that his son didn’t “want to bring [supporters] into courts & have them be subpoenaed & everything” — hence his resignation.
As for the current state of Schock, his dad said that his son was “broken” but a “fighter.”[su_center_ad]
