Sean Patrick MaloneySean Patrick Maloney, the first deputy secretary to New York Governor David Paterson, resigned this week, effective at the end of the year. Maloney, who is openly gay, was a holdover from the Eliot Spitzer administration.

Maloney, a senior West Wing advisor to the Clinton Administration, will become a partner at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, where he will join Michael Garcia, the Spitzer prosecutor.

Paterson has been a vocal supporter of LGBT issues in the past, but with gay marriage a contentious issue in the state Senate, community advocates are wondering how losing a top gay insiders in Albany will affect the community’s representation.


On March 10, 2008, The New York Times reported that Spitzer was a client of a prostitution ring under investigation by the federal government. Two days later, he announced his resignation as governor of New York.
