An ethics panel says it will continue looking into the actions of Congressman Aaron Schock to determine if he violated campaign finance laws.
The panel says its decision to continue the investigation does not constitute evidence of wrongdoing.
Schock is accused of soliciting a $25,000 donation to a SuperPAC in support of one of Schock’s political allies.
Federal law limits such solicitations to no more than $5,000.
The initial report on the case also notes that Schock’s fellow Republican, Congressman Rodney Davis, refused to answer questions about the case.
Davis at the time was the managing director of the SuperPAC.
