Attorneys for former congressman Aaron Schock are accusing federal investigators of prosecutorial misconduct on a number of grounds, including asking witnesses about his sex life.

According to court documents filed Tuesday, Schock’s defense lawyers asked a judge to dismiss the charges against their client. They claim the government discussed with witnesses whether Schock is gay, whether he really dated his ex-girlfriend and whether the spent the night together or shared hotel rooms.

Schock was indicted last November. He faces 24 counts, including wire fraud, theft of government money and making false statements.
