Today's Show: Challenging Barney Frank

3:30pm EST - Last week, we were joined by Congressman Barney Frank, talking about a number of issues, including ENDA and repealing DADT. When I asked about the leadership coming out of Washington and if we don't get these issues passed, who is to blame. Frank said that we should blame ourselves, saying that we aren't doing the lobbying that groups like the NRA have done successfully in the past. His answer has come to much criticism from the LGBT community. Joining us this afternoon is Dr. Jillian Weiss of Bilerico, who said of Frank, "He spent the entire time blaming the LGBT community for lack of movement in Congress. He was full of rage and contemptuous of the community. It was a shameful performance," in her article Rep. Frank, Stop Blaming The Community. She joins us to day to talk about it.
