MEXICO CITY — Former U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Peoria) is in the news again partying at a gay bar, this time in Mexico City’s red light district.
He’s previously been seen making out with guys at Coachella and hitting on others in West Hollywood. He’s never come out and has a record of anti-LGBTQ House votes.
British tabloid Daily Mail got video of Schock dancing at Boy Bar in Mexico City and of him stuffing cash down a go-go dancer’s briefs.
News site LGBTQ Nation has reported that there have been rumors that Schock was gay, despite getting a 0 score from the Human Rights Campaign. According to the site, he voted against repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, repealing the Defense of Marriage Act, and adding sexual orientation and gender identity to federal hate crimes legislation. He also refused to co-sponsor the Equality Act while in Congress.
Schock filed paperwork just a couple of weeks ago for his campaign committee in his old Congressional district, 18th-Illinois. In March, he plead guilty to misdemeanor charges related to accusations of him misusing campaign funds to decorate his office. He’d resigned his seat in 2015.
The Daily Mail said the video was filmed by an onlooker who was surprised to see Schock there. “He looked like he was enjoying himself,” the onlooker told the tabloid.
LGBTQ Nation reported they hadn’t received a response from Schock about this latest outing. No idea if he will state the obvious.
