How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Poor Secret Service; Rep. Barney Frank Won’t Invite the Prez Because of the Agents

Rep. Barney Frank

Poor Secret Service.

Maligned after the Colombia hooker scandal.

And now this.

Rep. Barney Frank doesn’t want them at his wedding in July when he marries partner Jim Ready.

The New York Times reports that he wanted to invite the President, but he didn’t want the Secret Service there.

“If he and Michelle wanted to come, I would be delighted and honored to have him, but he will bring the Secret Service,” Frank said in an interview taped Friday for the C-Span program “Newsmakers.”

“We’re having this in the city I live in, in Newton, Massachusetts, on a Saturday afternoon. I don’t want to be accused of having shut down the entire region for a five-mile radius on a holiday weekend. I don’t want my guests going through a magnetometer. I would be flattered to have the president do that, but it would ruin the party to have the Secret Service. I’m not critical of them, but they can go take their layered protection of the president somewhere else. Not to my party.”
