WASHINGTON D.C -- According to the website "Politico", the House Ethic Committee is considering whether to launch a formal probe of Peoria Congressman Aaron Schock.
Majority Leader Eric Cantor's office on Friday confirmed Cantor had been interviewed by the Office of Congressional Ethics.
According to Politico and other publications, Schock solicited a $25,000 contribution from Cantor for a SuperPAC supporting Illinois Representative Adam Kinzinger.
That's $20,000 more lawmakers are supposed to raise for a SuperPac.
Politico reports Schock's campaign has spent $94,000 in legal fees defending the congressman.
Steve Dutton, Schock's spokesman, said he was confident the "matter would be resolved positively".
