WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney's wedding in Cold Spring in June reportedly made use of a small drone aircraft to take video footage of the event, which would violate regulations set forth by the Federal Aviation Administration, according to the New York Daily News. 

Though the FAA has regulations against the commercial use of small drones, there is no federal law prohibiting the practice, the Daily News said. 

Maloney currently sits on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Aviation Subcommittee, which oversees the FAA, the Daily News reported. 

Maloney became just the second sitting member of Congress to enter into a same-sex marriage when he married his partner of 21 years, Randy Florke, who proposed to Maloney on Christmas, according to

Acting just like a democrat. They, democrats seem to think they are not subject to the laws they pass. Just look at our President for example.
Comes election time please remember the Non-affortable Health Care Act that. Democrats like Mr. Maloney, helped pass. The one that was negotiated behind closed doors and with not one republican voting for it.

Oh my, the hypocrisy on the Left continues. Why is it not mentioned in the article that Maloney is a Democrat? If he were a Republican, it would be emphasized several times. And the Left would be calling for his resignation, for using a drone without FAA permission.

Fear and ignorance? I have no idea what you are talking about. I could care less what they do in the bedroom. I am not the one that brought it up in the first place, the writer did. Oh and i guess you have no problem with them saying he proposed on Christmas day, totally irrelevant to the story but a cheap shot at Christians. Feign your moral outrage elsewhere.

This guy is just another entitled politician...............the rules do not apply to sad

Don't blame him, he just makes the rules for the rest of us and doesn't have to follow them himself-don't even think it, the horrors.

It's a shame some people still feel the need to let themselves be ruled by fear and ignorance. And yes, Daily Voice, would you allow racist comments to remain on your site?

Well now it is the Tea Party. At least they are not still blaming Bush!!

Tiocfaidh ár lá!!

Where's the outrage when Martha Stewart posts photos of her farm taken by a drone, or when people post films on you tube of their property for sale taken by a drone? This is because Tea Party hag Nan Hayworth is running against Maloney for the seat she lost to him. Politics as usual.

Chill out george lol

How chill are you when you're on the receiving end of demeaning comments? Perhaps empathy is an emotion you might consider experiencing.

The Daily Voice does an injustice to it's readers when comments such as the above aren't deleted. There is a vast difference between freedom of speech and Hate Mongering. Would you allow such comments toward other groups?
