It's Official! Barney Frank To Tie the Knot

Democratic Congressman Barney Frank has announced that he will wed his boyfriend Jim Ready, the Washington Post reported.

Frank, 71, cited the desire to concentrate on his personal life as one of the reasons for stepping down from Congress after 32 years in office.

The Jewish Democrat said the nuptuals would be in Massachusetts, where gay marriage is kosher, but he wouldn’s say when or give any other details.

Ready, 42, is described in the piece as a “Todd Palin” look-a-like.
