WASHINGTON, D.C. - Republican Representative Aaron Schock who announced his resignation after questions about reimbursements and lavish spending landed him in the hot seat.

Details about his spending life unfolded after reports came out about his "Downton Abbey" themed office, so journalists started looking into how he paid for the office.

Turns out, it cost taxpayers $40,000 of which he paid back to the government.

Apparently, Schock also billed the government and his campaign for roughly 170,000 miles on his personal car, but reportedly sold the car with just about 80,000 miles on it.

And reports say just last year, his campaign spent almost $75,000 on a new Tahoe which he registered in his name.
