The House Ethics Committee is recommending a full investigation of Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock.

Schock is accused of soliciting more than five thousand dollars for a political action committee to help fellow Republican Adam Kinzinger in the 16th District Republican Primary last year.

Investigators say three days before the primary, the Campaign for Primary Accountability PAC received at least $115,000 dollars in contributions as a result of efforts by Schock and his campaign committee.

Schock has denied any wrongdoing.
