Ok, so it’s a far cry from the “totally not gay” moment above, but yesterday saw the return of Aaron Schock to social media after an 83 week hiatus.
The 35-year-old former Congressman from Illinois had a fall from grace in March 2013 when he resigned his office after reports of misusing campaign funds for travel expenses, concert tickets, office renovations and a personal photographer on call.
In the aftermath of his resignation, Schock became much less visible to the public which stood in stark contrast to half-naked Instagram pics and fitness magazine covers.
Yesterday, Schock stuck a toe back in the social media waters when he shared this Instagram post:
3 years ago I was proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity Greater Peoria to create “Habitat for Heroes” aimed at providing affordable housing to returning Veterans from Iraq/Afghanistan. IL has the highest rate of homelessness for Veterans. Today we announced an expansion of the program beyond returning Veterans to include local heroes such as EMT, police, fire, etc who need affordable housing. Thankful to the community leaders of Elmwood, IL who have rallied to this cause and will help us build the first home. To donate or volunteer please visit: habitatpeoria.org
Rumors swirled for years about Schock’s sexuality thanks to his propensity to show some of that worked out body and a fashion sense that seemed to ping some gaydar occasionally.
