Schock turns over 10,000 financial records to government

Former U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock has surrendered more than 10,000 financial records to the U.S. government to comply with a subpoena.

Schock's lawyers argue that the Judge should dismiss a prosecutor's motion seeking to hold Shock in contempt for not complying with the subpoena.

It says the surrendered records relate to campaign and political entities.  Authorities are investigating Shock's spending and relationships with donors.

The filing also says Schock's lawyers are offering a chance to review nearly 3,000 other records that may contain references to financial transactions.

A hearing is planned Friday on the issue.
