"Just as Congressman Frank was able to help persuade Democrats to turn away from an anti-LGBT record over the more than 25 years he served as an openly gay member of the House, we believe Richard Tisei's personal influence in the Republican caucus has the potential to change the hearts and minds of colleagues. That is how real change begins."

-- From a press release issued by the Victory Fund and touted by Richard Tisei's congressional campaign. Barney Frank said yesterday that voting for the gay Republican wasn't as good for LGBT rights as voting for the incumbent Democrat running against him.
