Barney Frank's former
Frank was thought to have helped Fannie Mae "cook the books" in order to help his boyfriend.
Rep. Frank and his companion Herb Moses have been together for over 13 years. Frank often refers to his relationship with Herb and the strength of their family in floor debates.
Frank and Herb are no longer an item.
While the relationship reportedly ended 10 years ago, Frank was serving on the House Banking Committee the entire 10 years they were together. The committee is the primary House body which along with the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) has jurisdiction over the government-sponsored enterprises.
He has served on the committee since becoming a congressman in 1981 and became the ranking Democrat on the committee in 2003. He became chairman of the committee, now called the House Financial Services Committee, in 2007.
Moses was the assistant director for product initiatives at Fannie Mae and had been at the forefront of relaxing lending restrictions at the company for rural customers, according to the Feb. 23, 1998, issue of National Mortgage News (NMN).
“Herb Moses, who helped develop many of Fannie Mae’s affordable housing and home improvement lending programs, has left the mortgage industry,” Darryl Hicks wrote for NMN. “Mr. Moses - whose last day was Feb. 13 - spent the past seven years at Fannie Mae, most recently as director of housing initiatives.
Over the course of time, he played an instrumental role in developing the company’s Title One and 203(k) home improvement lending programs.”
Of course Frank refuses to refer to a former boyfriend, Steve Gobie, who turned Frank's apartment into a homosexual whorehouse. Ain't this precious? Steve is on the right.
What's the purpose behind this post? Simply this:
If a straight Republican had pulled this same nonsense with a sexy blonde Fannie Mae executive, the media would be all over him screaming for his head on a platter.
