AAN Launches “Himself” Ad Campaign Against Sean Patrick Maloney
WASHINGTON – The American Action Network (@AAN) today announced the ad “Himself” in New York’s 18th congressional district race, highlighting Sean Patrick Maloney’s record of looking out for himself.
In Congress, Sean Patrick Maloney has oversight of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee’s aviation subcommittee. Despite an FAA ban on commercial drones, he still used one for his personal benefit. Maloney has also voted to allow excessive congressional perks, including lifetime health care and first-class air travel for Members of Congress – both on the taxpayer’s dime.
The ad will air on New York broadcast TV and run online as part of AAN’s $600,000 in independent expenditures in the NY-18 race. AAN’s independent expenditures in the race also include a significant direct mail campaign.
“Sean Patrick Maloney has proven he’s just another self-serving politician who thinks he can play by his own rules,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for American Action Network. “Hudson Valley families deserve a leader who will look out for them, not just himself.”
