    Busted by Instagram - Illinois Rep. Aaron Schock

    Well, anyway, it makes me smile every time a pol gets caught.

    Rep Schock, already facing an ethics inquiry, has spent taxpayer and campaign funds on flights aboard private planes owned by some of his key donors. There also have been other expensive travel and entertainment charges, including for a massage company and music concerts.

    It used to be easier. With the resources on the net, you just cannot be too careful!
    Flight Aware + social media = you've got a lot of splainin' to do.
    A picture is worth a thousand words!
    The AP tracked Schock's reliance on the aircraft partly through the congressman's penchant for uploading pictures and videos of himself to his Instagram account. The AP extracted location data associated with each image then correlated it with flight records.

    How many aides are right now frantically going over the boss' media & deleting metadata?
