The House Ethics Committee is investigating U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Peoria, according to a Chicago Tribune item.
Schock entered Congress in 2009 as its youngest member and has enhanced its national reputation since. He also has garnered attention for showing his six-pack abs on the cover of Men's Health magazine.
Steve Dutton, Schock's spokesman, said that the ethics review involved super PAC money. The Tribune added that Dutton's statement seemingly referred to reports that Schock solicited a $25,000 contribution from Majority Leader Eric Cantor's political action committee. Said contribution was slated to help fund a super PAC that supported Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., in a March primary win against another GOP incumbent, Don Manzullo.
Federal officials may only ask for a maximum of $5,000 to help a super PAC.
