Barney Frank is setting his sights on
opening a gay brothel after retiring from Congress, Fox News' Greg
Gutfeld has suggested.
Frank, Congress' first openly gay

was behind his decision to retire.
President Barack Obama thanked
Frank for his decades of service and said that he would be missed
During a segment on Fox News' The
Five, Gutfeld predicted Frank's future after leaving Washington.
“Can I make a prediction?” Gutfeld
rhetorically asked. “I see a memoir in eight months called Being
Frank. 'Cause I think that's nice. He'll talk about being gay,
struggling with his weight. And then, he's going to later after
that, open up a bed and breakfast. There won't be any breakfast, it
will just be beds. It'll be highly successful.”
Columnist Robert Beckel hit back:

Gutfeld's bed and breakfast minus the
breakfast is a thinly veiled reference to allegations Stephen Gobie
made against Frank in 1989. Gobie told right-leaning media that he
ran a prostitution ring out of Frank's basement apartment with his
approval and knowledge. Frank denied the allegations.
Frank promoted a “deathstyle”; responsible for AIDS deaths, says Bryan
