Retiring Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) is making preparations for his wedding to partner Jim Ready this summer, when he’ll become the first sitting Congressman in a same-sex marriage.
And though he’s appreciative of the President’s support for marriage equality, the straight-shooting politico, 71, tells C-SPAN he’s not putting the Obamas on the invite list.
“I would be flattered to have the President, but it would ruin the party to have the Secret Service. I’m not critical of them, but they can go take their layered protection of the President somewhere else. Not to my party.”
That’s our Barney: Frisky to the end.
