Aaron Schock, Republican Congressman, Responds To Gay Rumors, Anti-Gay Voting Record
Hot off the press:
Schock said this past week that questions about his sexual orientation and how it might relate to his antigay voting record and positions are “inappropriate and ridiculous” and not “worthy of further response.” He also stated, “I’ve said that before,” when asked if he is confirming that he is not gay, and added, “You can look it up.”
Aaron, the questions just won't go away.
On why he voted against DADT repeal, Schock said: “I took the advice of military experts that came before Congress. Oh really, Aaron?!
I thought it was exactly the opposite...that the military experts were saying that gays in the military would not hurt military readiness and cohesiveness...which is why the president, Joint Chiefs of Staff and the military ranks were giving it their approval.
Ugh, can't stand this little troll.
I know all of you queens still want to fuck him, though.
Did he have at least one hand on his hip and shake his head a lot when he was saying it?
Self-loathing closet cases like this piece of shit who vote against gay rights need to be outed. I don't care how "hot" he is, out the bastard.
Okay, fine. Let's pretend Schock is not gay. Are there ever any reports of him even casually dating, having lunch with a female other than for work, interested in any female ever at all? No, I didn't think so.
If he weren't gay, then he wouldn't give off a gay vibe over and over unabated. People aren't dumb even though Schock thinks they are and thinks his denials answer the gay questions.
If Schocck weren't gay, then there would be some female in his life along the way that he would be seen with having dinner or showing off in some way. But there isn't. Sorry Aaron, we've all lived the life, and no one is that busy.
Where there's smoke, there's generally at least a little bit of a fire.
Aaron sweetie, you can never truly burn away the turquoise belt.
Oh to find that one pic of him posing with a photo on the wall -- he was channeling his inner Vanna.
It kills me that I didn't save it.
Did you guys see the video TMZ caught of him in Tampa where he was walking in a gay neighborhood with rainbows in the background? Not only that but Schock, who unfortunately represents a batshit district in my state, comes off as a flaming homo the way he talks.
No, R16, a truly straight Congressman wouldn't pose in GQ - he'd go for Details or Men's Health.
GQ has always had a slightly gay reputation...
How tall is he? He looks like a pocket gay.
If the rumors get any louder, he'll acquire a beard like Larry Craig and Charlie Crist.
[quote]I know all of you queens still want to fuck him, though.
Nope. I loathe the little shit. He is a hateful prick. But, if some guy has fucked him they should do us all a favor and out the bastard.
Someone needs to come up with a photo, video, or recording that can out that stupid little queen, STAT.
[quote]Someone needs to come up with a photo, video, or recording that can out that stupid little queen, STAT.
Every photo, video or recording DOES out him!
I think Details might be slightly gayer than Out. Having said that, this dude is gayer than tree tinsel.
fwiw, Barack Obama won nearly half of the counties in Aaron Schock's congressional district in 2008.
His new district is much more mouthbreathery though... less suburbanish around Peoria and more farmers and old rural people
And to the question about whether he's a pocket gay... yes. He's about 5'6".
I don't get why people find him attractive. He's got beady eyes and thin lips. He already looks like a little old man.
Thats' what makes me mad, R25. They had the chance to re-district this asshole out and they give him a better district?
They didn't have a chance to redistrict everyone they wanted to redistrict out and Schock wound up with the vote sink because he was the centrally located politician between Kinzinger and Schilling. They also probably want to keep Schock in Congress so he doesn't run for statewide office.
[quote]They also probably want to keep Schock in Congress so he doesn't run for statewide office.
Why? He wouldn't be much of a threat. He's a lightweight.
I don't think he could win a statewide office in Illinois. Chicagoland balances out the redneck crazies elsewhere in the state.
Do the old people he represents not know he is gay, or do they just not give a shit?
It would be a risk for him to run for higher office. It would bring even more attention to his personal life.
And the photos of him in the turquoise belt would re-surface.
Does he get to keep the GQ clothes?
I agree, R26. I don't find him remotely attractive. Guys with hot bodies and better looking faces are a dime a dozen, so I don't know why any self-respecting gay would give this guy the attention. He's got a mother-fucking, howdy-doody looking face.
That being said, I see him getting married to some Christian bimbo when he's either in or near his 40's, and then he'll get caught tapping his foot in some airport bathroom or soaking up spooge in some bathhouse. You know, like most other Republican leaders.
You can see that turquoise belt from space.
[quote]Guys with hot bodies and better looking faces are a dime a dozen
Bear in mind that the pickings in Washington are especially slim, so he gets more attention than he would otherwise.
[quote]the pickings in Washington are especially slim
Bullshit. In Congress, sure. But, there are many guys in DC who are far better looking than that dweeb.
Illinois has already elected one closeted Republican in State Treasurer Dan Rutherford.
Well two if you count Mark Kirk with the rumors about him but he has an ex-wife and a female lobbyist ex-gf so I don't buy them any more.
R38, you can tell Kirk is gay by listening to his voice.
Pre-stroke or post-stroke?
He has gay voice. He always has.
R18, why doesn't he just tie the tails of his shirt together in a knot over his abs.
Will we see him at this year's White House BBQ in assless chaps?
gay gay gay gay gay.
R14, it wouldn't be the first time Illlinois had a closeted governor.
Sorry but I don't know anyone gay enough to dress like that. And the glitter in the hair! Just darling!
[quote] Does he get to keep the GQ clothes?
Yup. Since the photo shoot 2+ years ago, he's been seen at public appearances in exactly the outfits he wore in the magazine - down to the same shirt/tie combinations, and even the socks.
Since he won't spend for a stylist, he just took advantage of what GQ did for him.
Maybe Paul Ryan SHOULD take them up on their offer to style him...
So he accepted those clothes as gifts when he was congressman? Isn't there a limit to the value of gifts government officials can receive? Or did they work out something that he received clothes as payment? Even that's questionable.
What if...Aaron Schock is WHITE BELT MAN!?
I'm pretty sure he must be gay and I'll tell you exactly why:
No straight guy, and I mean none be they pious Christian shit stains, or any other, will talk about his sexuality in code.
A guy who is hetero will come right out and tell you he's straight and regale you with tales of conquest.
What code is he talking in?
Aaron Schock is a Republican.
Um, no they're not, asshole at R36.
In the past three election cycles, Schock’s campaign and PAC spent $85,622 on luxury hotels, about half of which were four- and five-star outfits, including the Waldorf Astoria in Chicago, the famed Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Fla., and the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Steven Shearer, Schock’s chief of staff and campaign manager, says the expenses are merely investments that pay good returns — in the 2010 election cycle that propelled Republicans to the House majority, Schock was a top-10 donor to the National Republican Campaign Committee and to the “Young Guns” PAC, he notes.
To attract donations, Shearer says fundraising events have to stand out. “You can’t have the typical cocktail receptions at all the typical places in Washington that everyone has already done.”
CREW says the group first flagged Schock’s champagne tastes while scouring House members’ financials for a report titled “Family Affair.” In that analysis, they noted that Schock had used campaign funds for a fancy hotel stay in Greece (he later repaid the campaign) and for DVDs of the P90X fitness routine (billed under “healthcare,” by the way).
Other purchases included:
●$5,522 on what the campaign called “office equipment” from Euro Trash, an Illinois-based antique-import and design business whose must-see Web site (dig the massive chandeliers and to-die-for European antiques) declares that “everyone can and should live well.” Shearer, though, said the campaign purchased used office furniture, not antiques.
●$1,565 in “travel expenses” from “ J Bondi Inc.” in Beverly Hills. Shearer says this was for concert tickets (that company, CREW says, appears to be a holding company owned by Elton John).
●$859 on “gifts” from Storks Snapshots ($407) and the Bare Belly Boutique ($452), upscale maternity boutiques in Illinois. We’re still awaiting an explanation from Shearer on that one.
Campaign finance attorney Brett Kappel says Schock’s spending is a bit, well, schocking, particularly for such a junior legislator. “It seems he has expensive tastes — or excessive ambition,” Kappel says.
[quote]Shearer, though, said the campaign purchased used office furniture, not antiques.
Bullshit. Antiques can easily be classified as "used furniture." Let's see what that "used office furniture" looks like, Aaron.
that is true R57. I don't have a license to sell antiques, I have a license to sell second hand goods. Same license for a junk shop as a shop selling fine antiques.
[quote] DVDs of the P90X fitness routine
There's your link. He's become Paul Ryan's personal trainer.
Antiques ARE used furniture.
And how much has he spent on clothes?
As Dolly Parton says, "it costs a lot to dress that cheap!"
Turquoise belts are rare and expensive!
He has expensive taste in hotels and vacation destinations.
You have to wonder if he has an assistant who checks Wiki every day to make sure there's no gay information.
Is he falling in love with that microphone? Does it bring back memories?
[quote]i am not sure i even know how to do this....sorry!
To link back to an earlier post, just put "R" with the number of the post - no space between the R and the number. R69
Too gay even to beard.
[quote]You have to wonder if he has an assistant who checks Wiki every day to make sure there's no gay information.
You can bet that his gay Communications Director probably checks several times a day to see if there is any gay info on Wiki about Aaron Schock.
R72, you mean after he's done attending to the Congressman's personal needs?
Oops! His gay Communications Director is no longer checking Wiki for him. The C.D. quit his job today.
Look up the disgraced racist ex-C.D. He used to be a Southern Baptist pastor with a requisite cookie smelling face.
All the posters here would drop on there knees and swallow his cock if he even glanced in their direction.
IFHH and just as I getting ready to shoot, I'd pull out and cum all over Shock's chest, then force R76 to lick up all of my cum, then clean Schock's hole with his tongue.
Maybe we can get Barbra Streisand to sneak up on him during a televised news conference. When he flails, sucks air, and falls dead away in a faint, we'll have our smoking gun.
If we can convince Liza Minnelli to marry him, the whole world will know he's gay.
His gingham shirt shertainly brings back a few memoriesh of momma on that farm fensh, R79!
Schock billed the federal government and his campaign for logging roughly 170,000 miles on his personal car between January 2010 and July 2014. But when he sold that Chevrolet Tahoe in July 2014, it had only roughly 80,000 miles on the odometer, according to public records obtained by POLITICO under Illinois open records laws. The documents, in other words, indicate he was reimbursed for 90,000 miles more than his car was ever driven.
Big Bruno is waiting for Little Aaron just inside the jail cell.

We were posting about this three years ago. It took Politico a long time to catch up to what we were sharing several years back.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
