Schock’s former executive assistant testifies in Springfield

Former Congressman Aaron Schock's executive assistant testified before a federal grand jury Wednesday. Sarah Rogers was in Springfield's federal building for a total of five hours.  But her attorney says she did not testify the entire time.  Prosecutors began reviewing Schock's travel expenses and spending after he resigned amid reports questioning his campaign and political finances.   An affidavit says Rogers handled travel and expense reimbursements for Schock.
