The Controversial Politicians of Instagram, From Aaron Schock to Ayatollah Khomeini


Aaron Schock resigned from the U.S. House of Representatives over two months ago when his own popular Instagram account helped prove that he misreported his travel plans as well as his use of federal funds and campaign finances. Just recently, he paid $122,000 back to the federal government.

However, this hasn't stopped other political legacies from benefiting from the popular photo/video sharing app normally associated with benign narcissistic banality.*

Famously shameless ex-Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has one.

Ayatollah Khomeini's tribute account was recently reactivated.

Even Chechyan leader Ramzan Kadyrov -- who recently called for keeping women locked up and away from WhatsApp -- announced his two upcoming film roles from his Instagram account.

Then again, even ISIS makes cat memes.
