Schock says ethics investigation has no merit The Office of Congressional Ethics says it's continuing to review a complaint against Republican congressman Aaron Schock that alleges he sought a $25,000 donation for a super PAC to help fellow Representative Adam Kinzinger in a primary election. The O-C-E says the request was five times more than what's allowed. Schock says he believes the complaint is without merit:

"I have no idea when the process will be complete, but I stand my earlier comments which are that I don't believe I did anything wrong, the legal counsel that we sought doesn't believe I did anything wrong, and at the end of the day we think the House committee will find the same thing."
The report also says Congressman Rodney Davis helped manage money in the super PAC, and is refusing to tell investigators if Schock asked for excessive political contributions.
