Barney Frank got married to his long-term partner Jim Ready in Newton, Massachusetts yesterday.
The New York Times’ Mike Grynbaum was there and got plenty of great details about the couple’s history and the details of the ceremony. We especially like the vows:
…Mr. Frank and Mr. Ready pledged to love each other “on MSNBC or on Fox” and “in Congress or in retirement,” a reference to Mr. Frank’s decision not to seek another term.
However, one person wasn’t present amongst the 300 or so guests — Barack Obama. From the Boston Globe:
President Obama was not invited because Frank said he did not want the Secret Service presence to inconvenience the town or his guests.
