Rep. Barney Frank to Marry Longtime Partner

 

Outgoing and outspoken Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., plans to marry his longtime partner Jim Ready in a Massachusetts ceremony, according to various reports.
Frank announced in November that he would not seek a 17th term, citing redistricting that had pushed him into an unexpectedly heated reelection campaign as a reason for the decision.
Among the most influential liberal lawmakers of his generation, Frank was first elected in 1980 and serves as the ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee. As chairman of the panel, he helped shepherd the Dodd-Frank overhaul of the nation's financial regulations.
The Almanac of American Politics described Frank as a "savvy legislator known for his keen intellect and sharp tongue."
