The office investigating U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock over allegations the Illinois Republican violated campaign fundraising laws says new GOP Congressman Rodney Davis isn't cooperating with the probe. According to a report released Wednesday by the Office of Congressional Ethic, Davis refused to cooperate. Davis is a Republican from Taylorville and defeated two candidates, including Bloomington doctor David Gill in the November election. Davis emphasized today that the report doesn't accuse him of any wrongdoing. Schock is accused of soliciting a $25,000 contribution last March from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's political action committee for PAC backing of state Rep. Adam Kinzinger. Federal law prohibits contributions of more than $5,000. Schock has denied any wrongdoing. The report says Davis was the contact between Schock and several PACs. Davis was then part of U.S. Rep. John Shimkus' staff.
