Congressman Barney Frank, 72, has “married” his partner Jim Ready, 42. That’s a 30-year age difference!
Frank is one of the more charming members of Congress. In the mid-80s, a male prostitute he hired for sex moved in and ran a homosexual dating service from the apartment, supposedly without Frank’s knowledge. Even in DC, that was too much, and the House voted 408–18 to reprimand Frank.
So this was a traditional wedding: Something old, something new, something censured, something lewd.
