WASHINGTON (CNN) – Who says bipartisanship is dead?
Readers of the liberal Web site the Huffington Post have crossed ideological lines and voted Illinois Republican Rep. Aaron Schock the “Hottest Freshman” in the 111th Congress.
At age 27, Schock also has the distinction of being the youngest member of Congress.
Although nearly 10,000 votes were cast in the site’s poll, Schock suggested that he might have gotten some help from some participants who weren’t exactly unbiased. “It’s flattering,” the congressman said in a statement Wednesday. “Apparently my friends and family have a lot of time on their hands.”
Schock hails from Peoria, Illinois and represents the state’s 18th District in the House of Representatives.

All things considered, I think I would have been far more disturbed if it was reported they voted for Franken.
He'll make a good rubber-stamper!
This is is what the party has resorted to, trying to get people to vote Republican just because the candidate is good looking. Palin is a great example of how good looks should mean nothing.
California has a Golden Boy and look what kind of a mess they're in. You get what you vote for. Watch out!
He's just another Haggard!
Another reason to vote Democratic!
No brains, but just as cute as he can be. Just another typical Republican! Morons!
Hopefully his good-looks will help stimulate our economy! What fools!
Chee, democrats, you must be shocked to know it wasn't Pelosi.
He looks a little light in the loafers. But hey, if he is conservative I can live with it.
he's a flippin' hottie. Send him my way
Best of luck to Aaron Schock. He's still young enough to unlearn the Republican dogma, and he will, because he's there to watch the party self-destruct.
If the Republican party has a future, it will be in the hands of young men like this.
And yes, I'm a dirty Liberal.
I prefer President Obama.
Obama is ruining our country with excess spending and cabinet members that don't pay taxes, yet this is a news story? Great job CNN!
Since he's from Illinois he probably has a head start in being corrupt.
Yes, and good looks is all it takes to help lead the country.
omg noooo he looks scary with those beedy eyes. And what's with that big forehead??
Good looking? It is very relative.
Regardless of your party, if you're hot, then you're hot.
The Huffington Post is a rag...if it were in print it wouldn't be worthy of toilet paper.
The only thing worse is the No Body Cares (NBC) network...I like to listen in on Rachel Madcow and pontificate on how somebody so wretched and ugly could get a prime time spot on TV...
See? We don't think all Republican politicians are evil. Some of them make decent eye candy.
