BREAKING: Barney Frank To Marry Pot-Smoking Partner, Jim Ready, In MA

NECN reports that out Congressman Barney Frank, 71, will marry his longtime boyfriend Jim Ready, 42, in a ceremony in their home state of Massachusetts. There’s no word on a date yet, but we imagine it’ll be before the end of the year—maybe in Provincetown? (We also imagine Frank will dress himself up a little better than he does on the Congressional floor.)

Frank and Ready met at a political fundraiser in Maine six years ago. Since then, Ready has kept a fairly low profile, though he has come to Barney’s defense in public forums on occasion and was arrested in 2007 for growing marijuana plants.

Now that’s a bachelor party we wanna go to.
