Illinois congressman representative Aaron Schock recently announced that he'll be resigning from his office in Peoria, Illinois over speculation that he was using taxpayer's money for more than a ridiculous amount of stuff.

The day he'll be officially leaving office will be March 31st and it leaves the city of Peoria without a congressman until a special election can be held, and also leaves Schock to face potential legal music all on his own as he leaves the House!

Here's what his statement said:

"Today, I am announcing my resignation as a Member of the United States House of Representatives effective March 31st.

I do this with a heavy heart. Serving the people of the 18th District is the highest and greatest honor I have had in my life. I thank them for their faith in electing me and letting me represent their interests in Washington. I have given them my all over the last six years. I have traveled to all corners of the District to meet with the people I've been fortunate to be able to call my friends and neighbors.

But the constant questions over the last six weeks have proven a great distraction that has made it too difficult for me to serve the people of the 18th District with the high standards that they deserve and which I have set for myself.

I have always sought to do what's best for my constituents and I thank them for the opportunity to serve."

Wow!

The congressman has been hounded by allegations that he misused congressional money and moolah that was intended for his campaign.

A lot of the heat became focused on Schock after he allegedly spent $40,000 making his work office look like it was the Red Room from the show Downton Abbey… and that wasn't the only allegation of misspent money!

He also apparently took A LOT of private flights that were paid for by taxpayers' money and also took a lot of trips on planes owned by campaign donors!

In fact it's being investigated right now if Schock has amassed his $1.4 million fortune mainly through real estate deals with donors that he financed using the money of taxpayers! Which is NOT how it's supposed to be used!

The Office of Congressional Ethics is apparently investigating Schock and will continue to do so even with the announcement of his resignation. So Schock could not only be out a job but also could eventually find himself in jail!

That's how serious these charges are!!!
