NEW YORK: US Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney Marries Partner Of 22 Years

Via CBS New York:

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney is now a married man. The openly gay New York congressman wed his longtime partner, Randy Gene Florke, at the Church of St. Mary-in-the-Highlands in Cold Spring. Florke proposed in December after the youngest of their three children wrote to Santa wishing for her parents to be married. The 47-year-old Maloney represents the lower Hudson Valley region. Maloney is the state’s first openly gay member of Congress and one of two members of Congress married to a same-sex partner.
