Rep. Aaron Schock faces questions over sale of Peoria home for $925K

CHICAGO (WLS) -- U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock is facing questions about money made from the sale of his home in 2012.

The online publication Blue Nation Review reports the congressman sold the home to major campaign donor Ali Bahaj. The $925,000 price is reportedly much higher than what other homes in the area sold for.

"The blog post the gentleman just wrote was very hurtful, you know, because it questions my business dealings, but when you're in this environment, all's fair," Schock said.

It has not been a good week for Schock. He was criticized for his redecorated D.C. office in the style of Downton Abbey, and his press secretary resigned over racially offensive remarks posted on Facebook.
