InfoSean Maloney is a Democrat running for New York State Attorney General in 2006 when, as is widely expected, Eliot Spitzer will run for Governor. Sean is one of the most prominent and dynamic members of a new class of leaders in New York State. Sean is running because he believes the Attorney General?s office is a key pillar in supporting an active and progressive agenda that includes full equality under the law for everyone.

Sean has been active for more than a decade at all levels of New York and national politics: from working in the neighborhood club system and serving on his Community Board to working in the Clinton Administration and serving on the Board of the Empire State Pride Agenda, one of New York?s largest civil rights organizations.

Sean is a corporate attorney who has specialized for years in complex criminal and institutional investigations at Willkie Farr & Gallagher, one of the country?s premier law firms. As a pro bono lawyer, Sean successfully obtained political asylum in the United States for Carlos Kellner, the well-known Honduran labor leader, and represents the family of Matthew Shepard, the victim of one of the nation?s most infamous hate crimes.

Sean is an experienced business executive, having served from 2000-03 as chief operating officer of Kiodex, Inc., a Warburg Pincus portfolio company that provides risk management solutions to the commodities derivatives markets. At Kiodex, Sean managed a $40 million investment and helped build a mature, profitable company with a world-class set of offerings and an impressive array of Fortune 500 customers.

From 1997-2000, Sean served as a senior West Wing advisor to President Clinton, where he became the youngest person ever to serve as the president?s staff secretary, a post previously held by Clinton chief of staff John Podesta. In that position, Sean enjoyed direct, daily access to the president, managed a 100-person office and the president?s daily work load, and held exclusive authority to execute decisions on the president?s behalf. Sean was also the highest-ranking openly gay man ever to serve on the White House staff.

In 2002, Sean was selected for a prestigious two-year Next Generation Leadership fellowship from the Rockefeller Foundation. Sean has been profiled in numerous publications, including the New York Times and Vanity Fair and has appeared on a number of major news programs. Sean earned his BA from the University of Virginia in 1988; worked as a volunteer social worker in rural Peru from 1988-89; and received his JD from the UVA School of Law in 1992, where he served as managing editor of the Virginia Journal of International Law. Sean and his partner of 12 years Randy Florke live in New York City and have adopted three children together.
