Judge tosses wire fraud allegation against Schock

FILE – In this Nov. 10, 2016 file photo, former Illinois U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock talks to reporters in Peoria Heights, Ill. A federal judge in Illinois has tossed two counts in a 24-count indictment of Schock, including a count alleging he pocketed thousands of dollars by arranging meet-and-greets for his constituents in Washington. Judge Colin Bruce ruled late Monday Oct. 14, 2017 that prosecutors would have to rely on legislative rules to prove the allegation about the annual events. (Matt Dayhoff/Journal Star via AP, File)
