Former Donor Seeks Class Action Lawsuit Against Aaron Schock Over Donations

Former congressman Aaron Schock

The Daily Beast is reporting that a former donor of Rep. Aaron Schock plans to sue for a refund.

Howard Foster, a Chicago lawyer and former donor to the Congressman, will be the lead—and so far, only—plaintiff in the case against Schock, two sources familiar with the matter tell The Daily Beast. He has retained Steve Berman, a Seattle lawyer famous for launching high profile class action lawsuits against the likes of Exxon Mobil and Enron, to file the case tomorrow in Chicago Federal Court.

Schock resigned last month after it was revealed that he had claimed tens of thousands of dollars in false mileage reimbursements for use of his personal vehicle, among other spending irregularities.
