In an interview with Metro Weekly comedienne Kathy Griffin joked that out-and-proud Congressman (soon to be former Congressman) Barney Frank (D-Mass.) isn't really gay.
I have found that in D.C. the residents have just as much of a taste for Hollywood gossip as they do for making fun of Barney Frank, who I believe is a fake gay. I've never met a gay like Barney Frank in my life. So I believe that Barney Frank has been saying he's gay just to get votes all these years. I can't prove it, of course, it's just a theory of someone who's worked with the LGBT community and knows a lot of gay guys.
We've had our suspicions about Frank, too. I think it's his voice. Too manly.
