U.S. Rep Barney Frank marries longtime partner

Associated Press


U.S. Rep. Barney Frank has tied the knot with his longtime partner in a ceremony officiated by Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick.

Frank spokesman Harry Gural says the 72-year-old congressman married 42-year-old Jim Ready in a Saturday evening wedding at the Boston Marriott hotel in Newton. Gural says more than 300 friends, family and colleagues attended.

Frank, a Democrat who is retiring after more than three decades in office, represents the 4th Congressional District in southeastern Massachusetts.

Ready, of Ogunquit, Maine, has a small business doing custom awnings, carpentry, painting, welding and other general handyman services. He’s also a photographer.

Dennis J. Kucinich was a guest at the wedding. The Vindy should have been there covering the story.

Jerry Sandusky couldn't make the wedding because he is in custody. Who were the flower boys?

How does Sandusky tie into to this? Rep. Frank and his partner are two consenting adults. What they do is nobody else's business. Sandusky was a child abuser. Heterosexual men don't want to have sex with little girls. They have sex with consenting women. Homosexual men are the same way. They don't prey on children they find other consenting males. What goes on between two consenting adults is nobody's business but their own. Those of those of you who brought Sandusky into this are fools.
