Did Sean Patrick Maloney blow off 9/11 vote to campaign with Hillary?
NRCC | February 10, 2016

maloneyLast night the House voted to provide federal funding for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum by designating it as a national memorial.  New York Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney missed the vote.  Was that because he was attending a Hillary Clinton rally in New Hampshire?

The 9/11 vote was called at 6:50PM.  Maloney tweeted a video at a Hillary Clinton rally in New Hampshire at 9:12PM.  Was that why Maloney missed the vote?  For what it is worth, a flight from DC to New Hampshire is an hour and 6 minutes – plenty of time for Maloney to do his job before cheering on Hillary at her concession speech.

NRCC Comment:  “Sean Patrick Maloney should be ashamed of himself if he missed a vote to provide federal funding for the 9/11 Memorial to instead attend a Hillary Clinton campaign rally 500 miles away in New Hampshire.  Maloney seems to have forgotten he is still a Congressman for the time being and not a volunteer on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.” -NRCC Spokesman Chris Pack
