Fast and loose with bushels of our money, tight-fisted with one dollar of his own. Figures:

Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank caused a scene when he demanded a $1 senior discount on his ferry fare to Fire Island’s popular gay haunt, The Pines, last Friday. Frank was turned down by ticket clerks at the dock in Sayville because he didn’t have the required Suffolk County Senior Citizens ID.

A witness reports, “Frank made such a drama over the senior rate that I contemplated offering him the dollar to cool down the situation.”
Frank’s spokesperson confirmed to Page Six that his partner, James Ready, asked the ticket office for a regular ticket for himself and a senior ticket for Frank, “but was turned down because Frank didn’t have a resident ID.”

That’s okay, Barney — just pay yourself back out of Fannie & Freddie’s petty cash.

    He should have tried the sure-fire John Kerry line:

    "DON'T YOU KNOW WHO I AM!?!?!?!?!?!"

    Always a crowd pleaser when Kerry is cutting in line at Symphony Hall. I'm sure Kerry can teach Frank the proper way to toss your head and swing your hips for full effect.

    I'll bet John Kerry would give him and his boyfriend a free ride on his new yacht so long as they drive to NH. To hell with those little people in MA!
