Rep. Barney Frank to marry partner in same-sex ceremony

Reporting from Washington—

Rep. Barney Frank, the first member of Congress to voluntary announce he was gay, will marry his partner in a same-sex ceremony in Massachusetts, the lawmaker’s spokesman said Thursday.

 

Frank, 71, a Massachusetts Democrat, is resigning after his term expires at the end of the year. He will marry Jim Ready, 42, who has been Frank’s partner since the spring of 2007. Ready, of Ogunquit, Maine, has a small business doing custom awnings, carpentry, painting, welding and other handyman services, said Frank spokesman Harry Gural.

 

Massachusetts legalized same-sex marriage in 2004. Gural did not give a date for the wedding.

 

Frank has served in the House since 1981 and announced he was gay in 1987. He has been a leader on gay-rights issues and financial regulatory policy. A staunch liberal known for his sharp wit and acerbic comments, Frank has been a favorite target of criticism from Republicans.

It's a joke...a f'n joke...

I couldn't care less who between them is gay or if they're both a gay, or whatever.

But you've got to admit...the name thing is a hoot.
