Barney Frank, in interview, hints at closeted members of Congress
“Retired” Democratic congressman Barney Frank, in an article by Nik DeCostaKlipa in Boston, is reported to have suggested that a number of other members of Congress are “closeted” gays, and he says he has no problem with that as long as they aren’t hypocrites. The story is here. Barney Frank has a new book named after, well, his last name.
He’s particularly ticked at GOP members of Congress in the closet, since they often have voted anti-gay, and left Log Cabin Republicans with the dubious double role (of playing libertarian). Particularly taunting is the idea that Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL) was rumored to be gay, despite the public womanizing. The beef photos with a hairless chest doesn’t do anything to defuse the rumors. Remember David Skinner’s June 1999 article in “Weekly Standard”.
