Sean Bielat is running for U.S. Congress in Massachusetts's 4th district. His opponent is Barney Frank, the thirty-year House veteran who is openly homosexual. That's important only because Bielat was reportedly introduced to Frank's boyfriend during a heckling session following a debate on Thursday.
After exiting a debate with Barney Frank at the WGBH studios in Boston on Thursday, GOP opponent Sean Bielat was in the midst of giving an interview outside the studio when he was heckled by a passerby. By all accounts the passerby was none other than Frank’s boyfriend James Ready.
The heckling consisted of Ready (allegedly) walking up to Bielat in mid-interview with a handful of reporters and insulting him.
The video starts after a someone seemingly requests some information, to which Bielat responds that "we can send you some." The man alleged to be Ready fires back, "You gotta get used to it dude, if you're gonna you want to be a congressman, this is nothing."
Bielat: Yeah, but you're with Barney, right.
Bielat: Just-- that's cool.
Bielat: Sure is, at least if we can get the Congress back.
Man: Quit the jokes dude [inaudible] ...funny at all
Bielat: Are you serious?
Man: That was not funny. You just tried two jokes and they weren't even funny.
Bielat: You're really standing here and heckling me? Is that really what you're doing?
Man: You started talking to me first.
Bielat: You guys believe this?
The website flemingandhayes.com, which posted the video, says it received confirmation from two eyewitnesses that the man is Ready.
