I’m not a fan of Barney Frank.

I haven’t been since when he endorsed raging homophobe John Silber over pro-gay Bill Weld. Frank would sell our community out in half a heartbeat if it benefited him personally or his standing in the Democratic Party.

Nothing he’s done since has convinced me to change my perspective.
