Aaron Schock fell victim to the six inches of snow that fell on Peoria, Illinois Thursday afternoon, getting into what his office is describing as a "minor fender-bender" on his way to an event.

According to spokesman David Natonski, Schock skidded on an icy road and collided with another vehicle. No injuries resulted and Schock even made his event on time.

News of the accident broke on the celebrity Web site TMZ, which noted the youngest member of Congress's abs "remained unscathed"

Schock himself made light of the TMZ coverage on his Twitter account Friday - while taking a dig at embattled golfer Tiger Woods.

"Glad tmz is reporting on a car accident that doesn't involve fire hydrants or golf clubs and I'm glad no one was hurt," tweeted Schock.

    This guy is from my state of Illinois. All he has been in is politics, CHECK IT OUT and doesn't have any experience in life other than to listen to the Party of No and spread their policies.

    The man has a fender bender and a flood of ignorant comments commence to include one who hoped for his death.

    As far as the referrence to health, news flash, the GOP do not have the votes to stop anything (right now), so you can blame your democrats, if you were honest! But since your not.........
