Obama not invited when Rep. Frank marries longtime partner

Frank announced in January his plans to marry longtime partner Jim Ready this July, before he retires from Congress, making him the first sitting member of Congress in a same-sex marriage.

“We’re having this in the city I live in, in Newton, Massachusetts, on a Saturday afternoon,” he told C-SPAN. “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.”

Massachusetts is one of six states, plus the District of Columbia, that legally recognizes marriages between couples of the same sex.
