Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney is furious the powers that be notified him his office was NOT allowed to buy tampons for his staffers ... and he's blaming a bunch of Republican geezers he says are out of touch with reality.
We got the Congressman from NY at Reagan National Airport and wanted to talk to him about the video he posted Thursday on Twitter ... in which he writes a personal check for $37 after the House Administration Committee told him taxpayer dollars can't be used to buy feminine hygiene products.
My office bought tampons for female visitors and our staff. Then we got an email from @HouseAdmnGOP telling us we couldn’t use funds to purchase a necessary hygiene product. That’s ridiculous. More info: pic.twitter.com/8jyX3O4PeS
Maloney's appalled, and rightfully so after you hear him dish a long list -- like brass bookends, gavel sets and engravable plates -- that CAN be purchased with taxpayer money. Check it out ... he lays blame on the foot of Republican congressional leaders, and pulls no punches.
