Former Illinois Congressman wants a federal judge to drop some of his charges

Former Rep. Aaron Schock's attorneys file two new motions

ROCK ISLAND, Ill. - Former Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock wants a judge to dismiss some of the federal charges against him.

Documents filed by Shocks' attorneys Thursday ask the court to drop five counts related to campaign funding accounts he created.

He's accused of falsifying federal election commission filings.

His lawyers also want the charges that Schock violated three constitutional provisions thrown out of the case.

They include the Constitution's rulemaking, speech or debate, and due process clauses.
