Answer:-Yes, he broke the law, but he got away with it...Why?...Because he's a Democrat?
"Congressman Barney Frank (Democrat) - In 1985, he engaged the "services" of gay prostitute Stephen Gobie, who advertised in the Washington Gay Blade that he had a "hot bottom." Soon Gobie was Frank's live-in boyfriend, and Frank was soliciting the House clerk to clear Gobie's many traffic tickets. Gobie was running his prostitution business, clear as the day, out of Frank's Washington, DC residence.
He [Frank] and Gobie carried on a clandestine affair, during which time Frank hired Gobie as a driver despite knowing Gobie was on probation for drug possession and for possession of child pornography. Frank used his House privileges to fix Gobie's parking tickets. He wrote a memo trying to clear Gobie from probation that was disingenuous at best and an outright deception at worst.
So what happened to Frank for illegally hiring a prostitute, for fixing that prostitute's tickets, for trying to fix the guy's probation, and for allowing the prostitute to run his "business" out of Frank's Congressional residence? Nada. Nothing."
Read the answers you're getting here...Many of the liberals are defending someone that they are PROVING they know nothing about...Even without his criminal background, his service record is absolutely deplorable...They don't care, as long as he has a (D) after his name, he can do whatever he wants and they'll defend him.
Why do you think Marion Barry kept getting re-elected?
- Question:-How come no one has booted Barney Frank from his position as Chair of the House Financial Services Committee?
In September 2003, Frank, then the ranking Democrat on the Republican-led Financial Services Committee, opposed Bush administration proposals for transferring oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac by creating an independent agency to supervise. The proposal would have moved oversight from Congress and the Department of Housing and Urban Development to the new agency. Frank stated in 2003, "The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing." Frank stated that the bill would potentially "[weaken] the bargaining power of poorer families and their ability to get affordable housing"
And his "boyfriend" was instrumental in crafting todays collapse.
Frank's former partner, Herb Moses, was an executive at Fannie from 1991 to 1998, where Moses helped develop many of Fannie’s affordable housing and home improvement lending programs. In 1991, Frank pushed for reduced restriction on two- and three-family home mortgages. Frank and Moses' relationship ended around the same time Moses left the company; Frank's support of Fannie and Freddie predated and continued past that relationship
With Obama more of the same old politics, so much for the change he lied about to get elected.

Answer:-Damn it!!! Lewinsky is at it again!!!! I knew he looked familiar!!!
- Question:-When will the public start blaming Barney Frank and Chris Dodd for this mess?
It is amazing that Barney Frank can sit before the camera and act innocent of blame. It was the failure of Him and Chris Dodd to run their committees properly and prevent this mess that caused this mess. Both of them defended AIG and others when Bush and others wanted to tighten the rules. Congress and the SEC failed to in their task and they should also be punished.
As long as most listen to the liberal media, few will even know the truth about these guys. Getting the news from Jon Stewart and David Letterman will insure that no one finds out how bad the Obama people are.
Barney Frank and Chris Dodd were heavily involved in the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac scandal. They created the economic crisis and they spend most of the time blaming everyone else for it.
AIG gave lots of money to these guys as campaign money in order to get this bail out, so they understand this drama. It's all just an act to distract the general public from the fact that half that money was given to other banks around the world.
So they go after employee compensations that Dodd approved just a year ago, while AIG gives 90 billion to other banks. No one seemed to care about bonuses given to Franklin Raines (90million) and Gorelick (30million) who were thrown out of Fannie Mae for cooking the books.
We've never had a worse bunch of greedy idiots running this country.
There's no one who could keep a straight face and say Bush was even close to this bad. Compared to the Obama administration, Bush's people were geniuses.
- Question:-Can we give Barney Frank credit for at least knowing what's in important legislation?
In his Townhall yesterday, protesters said the health care bill would insure illegal aliens, Frank said no it didn't, the protesters yelled "Read the Bill." Barney Frank then did read the section pointing out that illegals won't be covered.
Frank is a great legislator, even if I disagree with what he's doing most of the time.
Answer:-He is standing up to these bullies, thank goodness. Just because you yell something loudly, doesn't make it true. They are just trying to shout this bill down, they have no idea what it's about as they haven't even read it.
And I don't think they even know what Nazi means. How funny is it that they accused a gay Jewish congressman of supporting a Nazi policy? It seems they can't read, whether it's a healthcare bill or a history book.
- Question:-What are some issues barney frank has gotten behind obama on?
What issues has obama asked barney frank to get behind him on?
Answer:-I wouldn't ask Barney Frank to get behind me, if you know what I mean.
- Question:-What are the chances of Barney Frank becoming the first homosexual president?
I support Barney Frank in the 2012 presidential election. Barack Obama is not liberal enough because he compromises too much with the Tea Party. We need a true progressive who sticks to his principles. Frank has stood up for gay rights and helped countless poor people buy affordable houses. That's why I believe Obama should step down and let Barney Frank take the Democratic nomination.
Answer:-That's one of the most stupid f'n questions I've ever read on YA. He has as much chance of fulfilling your dreams as I do growing a 14" schwantz and getting into porn at age 65. Judas Priest, you are stupid.
- Question:-What was the word Barney Frank used to describe the woman he insulted at the town hall meeting?
I was watching AC 360 last night and Barney Frank was debating with someone. I can't find the word they both used to describe that woman but it sounded like "lah-loosh" .
Answer:-If you have the link, it might help. If you are referring to the woman who was using Nazi terminology, she's a supporter of Lyndon Larouche.
- Question:-What would you do if Barney Frank tried to seduce you?
Let's say you are visiting Washington, DC to see the place where guys like Jefferson and Madison served their country. Then, when visiting the Washington Monument, you see Barney Frank staring at it's huge phallus like appearance and drooling. Your eyes meet. He walks up to you and offers to buy you lunch and talk about inside the beltway secrets. At lunch, Barney makes sexual jokes and flirts with the male waiter.
He then starts running his foot up your pants leg.
What do you do next?
Answer:-Throw a bunch of gerbils at him and run away.
