Rep. Barney Frank endorsed Clinton Tuesday.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Rep. Barney Frank, D-Massachusetts, endorsed Sen. Hillary Clinton for president Tuesday, and will serve as an economic adviser to the New York Democrat.
“I am particularly pleased by her commitment to reverse the economic policies that have created a situation in which as the country progresses economically, only a small number of Americans benefit,” Frank, who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, said in a statement released by the campaign.
The openly gay Massachusetts Democrat also praised Clinton’s positions on social issues.
“Based on my work with her on issues involving discrimination, I am convinced that Hillary Clinton is the best candidate best equipped to pass laws that will treat all Americans with dignity and equality no matter who they are or who they love,” said Frank.

HA HA ! What a joke ! Wasn't Barney found to be running a brothel in Wash. DC ? Oh THAT'S real good
Rep Frank founded the Stonewall Democrats. OK , that's not in itself the most objectionable thing he has done. Are you people aware of what he was involved in at his Washington townhouse? Im sure cnn would not allow comment if I spelled it out.
LOL... only fitting! He too finds himself being "piled on" by boys... although he doesn't really mind it as much as Hillary.
Barney would make a great ambassador to Iran.
Does this mean Hillary is for gay marriage now??
Perhaps Barney thinks by endorsing Hillary the boys will begin piling on him??
Who cares? National endorsements don't matter. I'll worry when Hillary starts picking up more state senators, state assemblymen, and congressman in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. Massachusetts is not really a player and neither is Rep. Barney Frank. LGBT voters simply aren't concentrated enough in any given state to have any significant impact on an election even if they nationally support any given candidate. Sorry... but that's just how the numbers break down.
Ronnie the answer is NO!
Let the CNN Censorship begin!!
Don't expect them to approve ANY quips about Barney and Hillary. My two previous have been spiked.
Good job CNN!!
If you guys ever listen to what Barney Frank has to say, it's a whooooole lotta truth telling. That said, such an establishment endorsement is disappointing from him.
(By the way, I love the criticisms of Frank's sexual past. At least he's an out gay man and not living a lie while simultaneously making life hell for the next generation of gay Americans! Read: Larry Craig and, oh, about half the Republican Party.)
I can look in the mirror and be proud that I never voted for this loser.
What a disgrace to this state he is.
Don't look like your starving eh, Hot bottom.
I am shocked and chagrined that a Massachusetts liberal is endorsing Hillarity.
They have such an awesome track record on endorsements and liberal elitist candidates who run for office.
Hey Barney, You became Chairman of House Financial Services through the backdoor and now you want to be economic adviser to Hillary. What a joke... Look at your standing in the society.. I think Hillary will get votes from all gay people.. Amrican people.. watch out....
This endorsement is going to be very important for Hillary's campaign because all the people that are not being considered and treated equal by the government in the actuality, like homosexuals, trasvestis, etc., will strongly support her. This is also going to be a great progress for the equality in the country. However the people are going to decide if the homosexual people should have the same rights, like marriage, and adopt children, that the heterosexual people have.
Hillary Clinton would practically start the end of discrimantion to homosexual people in America, and it has been proved in many other countries such as Denmark that with the end of the discrimantion the social life will improve.
This is a great step for the equality in the country because now the people is going have the power on their hands to decided if the homosexual people should be considered equal to everybody no matter their likes.
It gets better everyday first Pat supports Guialini now this. This is great the media front runners are fading away. Maybe people will finally see them for what they really are Bush clones.
Thank you, Congressman Frank. As an openly gay man who passionately supports Hillary Clinton (particularly for her vow to end "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," pass ENDA, support Hate Crime legislation, and fight against the FMA), your added support is extremely crucial today. Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!
Another prize indorsement for the Clintons, no doubt...
But economy adviser? Does watching a revolving bathroom stall door count as economic experience these days?? It's a down right shame to have to worry about being exposed to Barney's wonderous life style every time we go to the bathroom. Or is that just me?
He endorsed Hillary because of all the business she has given him at his illegal escort service he runs out of his house.
I would rather have Bush endorse me than this loon!
I'm gay and i don't really care about him. In fact, he's been in office too long too.
This man has no shame. After all the bad publicity from the Clinton camp this past few weeks, this man comes out supporting Hillary.
It is a clear reflection of the man himself. Please people of Masachussetts vote this man out of office.
Vote Edward 2008
I think Barney Frank blew it
You're wrong Congressman.
Rep. Kucinich would be "best equipped to pass laws that will treat all Americans with dignity and equality no matter who they are or who they love”
Wasn't this the dude that had something to do with a gay prostitute ring years ago? Someone correct me if I'm wrong please.
What a shame? After all the question planting and flip flopping. Real reflection of the man himself. Please people of Masachussetts vote this man out of offices
What a joke? Are these people paid to do this or they are thinking for themselves
