Ex-Rep. Aaron Schock Is Not Missing

Last week reports surfaced that ex-Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) could not be found. A lawyer representing a campaign donor told a judge he couldn’t find him.

But a couple of reports have us thinking that he’s actually not that lost. [RELATED: GONE GIRL?! Reports  Say Aaron Schock Could Be Missing]

In one instance, a Mirror reader claimed that he saw Schock at Chicago Midway airport. But he wanted me to cough up money for his selfie.

“I’m willing to provide it but don’t want to just yet until a couple formalities are made,” he wrote.

And what formalities would those be?

“I’m positive it was him as he verbally confirmed it,” he wrote.

“By formalities I just meant I would like my face blurred out should you use the image,” the reader wrote. “Also, is it possible I could receive some compensation for providing the image?”

No, payment is not possible. This isn’t The National Enquirer. But blurring is.

The reader tried again to squeeze money out of me. “I understand,” he wrote. “Do you think a bigger site would?”

Thankfully FNC’s Greta Van Susteren came through Monday with concrete proof free of charge.
