Former GOP Rep. Aaron Schock, who recently slid out of corruption charges including filing false tax returns, mail fraud, wire fraud, submitting false reports to the FEC, false statements, and theft of government funds, defrauding the government of more than $100,000, was seen partying it up at Coachella over the weekend with a posse of shirtless men.
Aside from the dropped corruption charges, Schock is known for his support of a federal amendment to ban same-sex marriage and his support of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. As well as that Downton Abbey office, and his unforgettable turquoise belt.
So activist James Duke Mason couldn’t hold back when he spotted this photo of Schock (second from left) partying at Coachella.
Wrote Mason on Facebook: “Normally I wouldn’t comment on something like this, but I am just infuriated by these images of former Republican (and anti-gay) Congressman Aaron Schock partying with a group of gay men at Coachella. The fact that he would think he could show his face in public, particularly when he has NEVER renounced or apologized for his votes against gay marriage, gays in the military and against anti-discrimination laws is astounding. My intention isn’t to out him or target him personally, but simply to point out the hypocrisy. I saw him at a recent gay social event in West Hollywood and shook his hand before I even knew who he was; he should really be ashamed of himself. And the gays who associate with him without calling him out should know better. It really is a disgrace.”
The men with their arms around Schock in the photo above were identified by Wehoville as fitness trainer Keith Anthony and his boyfriend Tyler Tixier.
A source sent us an additional photo of someone they claim to be Schock, making out with another guy.
