Disgraced, Totally-Not-Gay Ex-Congressman Aaron Schock Finally Resurfaces


Where in the world is Downton Abbey-loving Men’s Health cover model and totally heterosexual ex-Congressman Aaron Schock?

You’ve probably been wondering where this buff Illinois pol has been hiding out since his highly publicized resignation in March. As of late April, at least, he seemed to be missing.

But Politico reports Schock—who had a solidly anti-LGBT record before his career imploded—is actually with his dad in Peru, hiking to the top of Machu Picchu.

“Schock can’t seem to escape his troubles, even in the ’lost city of the Incas,'” the site claims.  “During dinner at a restaurant in the Peruvian city of Cusco, once the capital of the Incan Empire, Schock and his father, Richard Schock, were overheard discussing the disgraced former congressman’s legal woes and how to navigate the murky waters of what the ethics probe might reveal.”

That probe, you might remember, stems from Schock’s accepting private funds to bring “personal photographer” Jonathon Link Link on a trip to India, along with other dubious financial dealings.

Alas, Link is not along for the Machu Picchu adventure. Have they severed ties? Who will take photos of Aaron climbing such great heights and post it on his (now locked) Instagram account?
