Biggest Battle Since Crawford v. Davis

Foreman v Frank!

Outgoing Task Force leader Matt Foreman appeared on Michelangelo Signorile’s radio show this week and lobbed a few hard balls at Representative Barney Frank, a man some say didn’t take a strong enough stand during last year’s ENDA debacle.

I think what really happened is [Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s] people said ‘Look, Congress has a terrible reputation right now, they’re not delivering for any progressive causes… What do we have to do to deliver to our progressive allies?’ That means labor and health and environment and gays. And, so, I mean, I don’t know this for a fact, but I would bet my life that this is what happened: They went to Barney Frank and said ‘What do we need to pass ENDA?”

“Representative Frank, who has always been pretty squeamish on the trans issue, and I guess I can say these things because I am leaving my job…

Frank’s office called in soon after and called Foreman’s allegations “absurd”.

Frank will appear on Signorile’s Sirius radio show today at 3:30 to plead his case.
