    Maybe he's making a point.

    Maybe he thinks he's above any sort of law or restrictions, like so many others in government positions.

    I thought there was no law. Some people are only happy when they have something to complain about.

    I'm not sure he was even aware the drone was being used.

    Parker Gyokeres, owner of Propellerheads Aerial Photography, who operated the drone at Maloney's wedding, and was paid by Maloney's videographer, acknowledged in an interview Monday the "FAA has straight banned everyone from flying."

    "Prior to wedding, the Gyokeres and Maloney briefly discussed the murky legality of drone use and lack of clear federal policy, a source said. Maloney mentioned that he sits on the subcommittee overseeing the FAA but didn't want to discuss policy on his wedding day, according to the source."
