The Daily GOP Ignominious: Aaron Schock..Abe Lincoln?

Aaron Schock (R) IL.

With unidentified woman
 in Buenos Aires....
Waikiki Beach 
What we have here is a major failure in life, a seriously delusional millennial, and a archetypal politician replete with an often hidden paradigm: "give me money and gifts and I may serve you well."  
We paid for this mess!
The Republican politician (this time) lied about expense submissions (thus ripping us off as surely as a street looter or Wall street thug), he accepted money for association, he may have accepted money for future congressional  votes,  and he accepted gifts (private plane trips, etc.) This time?  Jesse Jackson Jr. (D) IL is currently serving a sentence for exercise of privilege similar to Schock's indiscretions. Jackson's wife will serving tie in the federal prison system after Jackson Jr.'s release. 

The one-term member of the US House of Representatives has truly lived up to his last name: Schock. (Shock)


Aaron Schock Compares Himself to Lincoln in Farewell Speech: He Only Served One Term

by Tina Nguyen | 1:15 pm, March 26th, 2015

Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL) made his first public appearance in weeks today, formally saying goodbye to his colleagues during a speech on the House floor, and promising that one day, he would rise out of the ashes of his political career like a beautiful phoenix named Abraham Lincoln.
Schock, who resigned in disgrace after revelations about how he spent taxpayer money and received unethical freebies, apologized to his constituents from Illinois’s 18th District and said that he was honored to play a role in creating a Republican majority in Congress (albeit as a highly effective fundraiser). “There was, is and will be so much to do and I’m honored to have played a small part in making a real difference,” he said. (Schock did not write any legislation that became law during his six years in Congress.)
Schock, who is currently the subject of an FBI criminal investigation, then compared his trials to those of the greatest politician in American history:
Abraham Lincoln held this seat in Congress for one term. But few faced as many defeats in his personal business and public life as he did. His continual perseverance in the face of these trials, never giving up, is something all of us Americans should be inspired by, especially when going through a valley in life. I believe that through life’s struggles, we learn from our mistakes and we learn more about ourselves.
It should be noted that Lincoln, only held a seat in Congress for one term because, during his 1846 campaign, he promised to serve in Congress for one term. (It was apparently a Whig Party thing, and, had Abraham Lincoln had access to Instagram and a plane, would probably not have used either of those to live a lavish lifestyle.) Also: Schock served three-and-a-half terms.
