MALONEY HIT WITH NEW PERSONNEL SCANDAL: This is getting to be something of a regular occurrence with Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY), who heads the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).
The Washington Free Beacon’s Collin Anderson reports that Maloney provided a tax-funded staff job to a long-time friend of the New York representative’s husband:
“Maloney from September 2019 to July 2020 employed Hollywood journalist Kevin Sessums in his official office, according to House disbursement disclosures. On Facebook, Sessums has repeatedly boasted of knowing Maloney and his husband, Randy Florke, ‘for 30 years,’ and Sessums regularly refers to Florke as ‘an old friend.’
“It’s unclear exactly what Sessums did in Maloney’s office—the Democrat’s spending records merely list Sessums as a ‘staff’ member and offer no specific title—but Sessums almost certainly did not work for Maloney full time. That’s because he worked as editor-in-chief of his own entertainment magazine—sessumsMagazine.com—during his entire time in Maloney’s office, according to his LinkedIn, which does not mention his work for Maloney.”
