The U.S. Attorney’s office Thurs. indicted ex-Illinois congressman Aaron Schock on 24 counts of alleged fraud.
The former 18th District Congressman resigned in March 2015, amid allegations of financial mismanagement.
He held a press conference with his attorneys in Peoria, about an hour before the indictment was released. Schock claims no wrongdoing. He says the Justice Department "manufactured a crime."
