Barney’s Boyfriend Heckles Barney’s Opponent

Despite all this equality talk coming from the various gay organizations, seems some gay Democrats don’t want to hold gay relationships to the same standards as straight ones. The unhappy Barney Frank has become the posterchild for this left-wing hypocrisy.

In the 1990s, he assured us there was no conflict of interest while he served on the House committee overseeing Fannie Mae while his then-boyfriend worked for that government-sponsored enterprise.  Now, his current-boyfriend heckles the mean-spirited Democrat’s Republican opponent:

Upon exiting the most recent debate with Barney Frank, located at WGBH studios in Boston, MA,  Republican Congressional candidate, Sean Bielat, gets heckled by a Barney Frank “supporter” while talking to the media.  While watching this video, we realized that we recognized this “supporter”. We received confirmation from two eyewitnesses that the mysterious cameraman was none other than Barney Frank’s pot-growing boyfriend, James Ready.

Imagine the outrage,” Doug Powers, who alerted me to the story above, quips, “from Camp Barney if Bielat had his wife following Frank around and heckling him during chats with reporters.”

Moe Lane all finds this very amusing:

But what I do find funny is that if you were to take out the names and redo this story in terms of Candidate A has to send Significant Other out to heckle Candidate B because there’s nobody else to do it and asked a bystander which candidate was the challenger, he or she would probably say Candidate A.

This is how long-term incumbents lose, you know: they assume that they’re never going to need to keep a proper campaign staff, so when they turn out to need one they have to hastily improvise, often to unintentionally hilarious results.

And that’s what makes it so much fun to blog about Barney.  You just can’t talk about this guy without laughing at his hypocrisy — and his arrogance.  Not to mention his self-righteousness.

You can support Sean Bielat here.



  1. Rep. Barney Frank is desperately seeking Susan. He is reduced to having disgraced President Bill Clinton campaign for him instead of the toxic, President Obama then Barney’s boyfriend has to heckle his opponent. Sad. But I’m enjoying Frank sweating bullets as his Congressional seat slips away.

  5. Has Barney Frank been on Sesame Street yet? Maybe he could get some needed attention showing too much plumber’s butt to Big Bird.

    Or, maybe he and his mate could paint their bellies like faces and do one of those horrific beer gut karaoke skits.

    The Democrat jackass doesn’t kick higher or bray louder than when a liberal legend-in-his-own-mind begins to fray and crumble.

  6. Is this the same boyfriend who was running a gay prostitution ring out of Barney Frank’s basement all those years back? Or is this a new boyfriend?

  7. So wait this is not the boyfriend who was using Frank’s congressional apartment for a prostitution side business?

    This must be the one who was in trouble from growing pot (You know the stuff you need to be an outdoors man to recognize) right?

    I see he picks the classy ones.

  8. Barney had better take care of business at hom(o), or else Bielat the Marine could be storming the shores of discontent.

  9. I know that Franks has no shame whatsoever but I can’t help feel embarassed for him. How sad that he has allowed himself to become… this.

  11. Another example of liberals playing politics of the personal and not being held to the same standard of their conservative counterparts.

  12. Absolutely priceless, barney has been on a free ride since 1981. How many of you have experienced a 287% pay increase over the last 30 years. He has earned $3,324,072 in salary never mind all the other benefits and trips provided by ‘friends’ and his PAC. No wonder he his getting nervous, the gravy train is in danger of coming off the tracks. Of course, he will still get a monster pension and healthcare for the rest of his life.

    Hopefully enough voters in his district will get a clue and vote for Bielat to send Barney on his own Obamacation like the 16,000,000 others who are unemployed.

  13. John, “Let himself go”?
    What on Earth makes you think that he was ever any different?

  14. DaveP: Franks wasn’t always like this, even if you have to go back to his time in the womb at some point in his life he was better than this but through a series of bad choices allowed himself to become what he is today.

  15. John, yes, what you’re describing is corruption. Barney Frank is corrupt.
