In reference to Paul’s opposition to the renewal of the PAtriot Act, Frank told the Huffington Post, “I think Rand Paul sincerely believes what he says. On the other hand, my right to marry my husband is not one of the civil liberties that Sen. Paul was prepared to recognize, so I’m not ready to grant him the total crown.”
“What will now happen is Paul will be swept aside, ” he added. “Paul does not want to see the USA Freedom Bill … that’s now going to get adopted over Paul’s objection.”
