    Just weeks ago, the 33-year-old with model good looks was an Instagram star, posting endless photographs of himself — some of them shirtless — jetsetting around the world, hobnobbing with celebs, training with troops and surfing and sunbaking in exotic locations.

The pictures have also been used to fuel rumours that Schock is gay — an issue only because of his staunchly Republican views and the fact that he campaigned against marriage equality. On April 15, lawyer Daniel Kurowski filed a lawsuit...

"So he has about 23 pellets still in his back." On March 30, Horowitz was walking Ollie near Georgia Avenue and Euclid Street NW when the dog broke loose. "A car just backfired,...
