Frank Says More Closeted Gays In Congress

Former Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) said that he believes there are still closeted gay members of Congress, the Jersey Journal reports.

“Frank, who is openly gay, has no qualms with these members staying in the closet as long as they are ‘supportive of legal protections’ for homosexuals.”

Said Frank: “The issue where they lose me is hypocrisy. What I think is unacceptable is to vote a certain set of rules as an elected official and then to violate them yourself. But if you are a Democrat, Republican, whatever, and you vote to allow people to do what you do, then I have no demand that you become public.”
