Ballasy’s Ballsy Shower Q Draws Rep. Frank’s Ire

This afternoon Gawker lays out questions posed by CNS News’ Nicholas Ballasy to Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) on Capitol Hill. Frank, who is gay, gets irate when the reporter asks him about repealing DADT and on straight military personnel showering together with homosexuals.

Frank replied, “What do you think happens in gyms all across America? … Do you think the spray makes it catching?…It’s a complete non-issue.” The congressman stepped back in faux shock and asked the reporter a pointed question in return: “Do you think gyms should have separate showers  for gay and straight people?”

Ballasy’s nerve (or something) deflates. He doesn’t answer the question.
