Atlas Shrugs reviews the history
Barney Frank's Pot Bust
Barney Frank's lover, Stephen L. Gobie, ran a gay prostitution ring out of Frank's home.
Barney Frank's lover, Herb Moses, was a Fannie Mae executive at the forefront of the agency’s push to relax lending restrictions. Frank became the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee in 2007 after the Democratic Party won a majority in the House. The committee oversees the entire financial services industry, which includes the securities, insurance, banking, and housing industries.
And now Barney is pushing weed legislation while he dallies with his pothead lover.
This track record would doom the career of most politicians. But Frank seems to skate away from every scandal.
He is a member of the club, you see. That select club of the Washington elite that includes Larry Summers and Jamie Gorelick. Membership has its privileges. The most valuable of which is the presumption of righteousness anytime a member is caught up in something unseemly.
