oh but he's a special kind of closeted self-loather: his voting record is so anti-gay he earned a 0% rating from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC)
"He has supported an amendment to the Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. He opposed President Obama’s 2011 decision to not defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) against court challenge. Schock voted against the 2010 repeal of the ban on gay men and lesbians serving openly in the armed forces. And he voted against the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act.

it's one thing to be a closeted politician but there's a special place in hell for those who use their vote to damage the progress of civil rights. He's toxic, and vile.
he's also linked with IL GOP congressman Adam Kinzinger in a campaign finance ethics investigation, funneling money to his DL boyfriend's campaign.
It will be interesting to see what his political career ends up being, he was considering a run for Governor of IL, but the Republican Party scuttled that. Hard to run a conservative "family values" campaign with a 32 yo male candidate who's never been married or had a girlfriend, and likes to pose for fitness magazine covers.
