    Illinois Rep. Aaron Schock failed to disclose a number of gifts on a financial disclosure form in connection with a 2011 visit to London, a published report out Thursday night alleges.

    The Politico report also accuses the congressman of failing to report payments he should have made for use of a Maryland golf course for a fundraiser.

    The report is another hit for the fourth-term representative, who is currently under investigation after a Washington watchdog group filed an ethics complaint after it was found Schock may have used campaign funding to decorate his congressional offices.

    Most recently, an Associated Press investigation found that Schock spent taxpayer money and campaign funds on flights aboard private planes owned by key donors. The investigation also shed light on some outlandish travel expenses and entertainment charges.

    The 33-year-old earlier this week hired top lawyers and public relations experts in the wake of the recent questions surrounding his travel and entertainment expenses.

    Jon Stewart, the host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," mocked Schock and his Instagram account on Wednesday night's program.
