Rep. Barney Frank marries gay lover in Massachusetts

Mr. and Mrs. Barney Frank

Retiring Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, the openly-gay member of Congress whose former boyfriend ran a prostitution ring out of the representative’s Capitol Hill townhouse, Saturday became the first sitting member of Congress to enter into a same-sex marriage.

Frank, 72, married his 42-year-old gay lover Jim Ready at the Boston Marriott hotel.  Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick married the couple.

Frank announced his retirement from Congress earlier this year.

    You got your freedom to marry and I am delighted. Don’t runaway from the ladies of America who also need firm freedoms too.

    To be honest, the way you wrote this is crass and disgusting and you should be ashamed of it. It’s beneath you.

    Siannan, me thinks you read to much into things.
