Spitzer appoints
Maloney to state seat

Sean Patrick Maloney, the out politician who lost his bid for New York attorney general in 2006, was appointed to serve as the first deputy secretary to the governor. New York's freshly sworn-in governor, Eliot Spitzer, and Lt. Gov. David Patterson announced 11 administration appointees Thursday.

The statement released by the governor's office indicated that Maloney will focus on Spitzer's strategic and policy priorities.

Maloney has worked for President Clinton and was chief operating officer at a risk management firm in New York City, according to the statement. He was also an attorney at Willkie Farr and Gallagher, specializing in complex legal investigations.

When Maloney ran for the Democratic nomination for attorney general last year, he came in third with 9.4% of the vote, according to NY1, a local news station. He was defeated by Andrew Cuomo, son of former New York governor Mario Cuomo. (The Advocate)
