Maloney Blasts Nomination of Tennessee State Senator Mark Green for Army Secretary
Newburgh, NY – Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) released the following statement after President Trump nominated Tennessee State Senator Mark Green to serve as Secretary of the Army.
“Mark Green has sponsored legislation to discriminate against the LGBTQ community and said people who are transgender have a disease.
"I respect the guy's military service, but he's clearly one of these politicians who for some reason is obsessed with discriminating against gay people. At a time of international crisis, couldn't we just have someone focused on protecting our county?"
Representative Sean Patrick Maloney is the first openly gay member of Congress from New York. After 22 years together, he married his husband Randy Florke in June 2014 in Cold Spring, NY where they live with their three children.
