Rep. Frank: Gays should lobby elected officials - Yahoo! News
They cannot do both? Obama has been way too slow on pushing for gay marriage and ending DODT, so doing everything possible is what gays and their supporters should be doing.Associated Press Writer Andrew Miga, Associated Press Writer – 38 mins ago
WASHINGTON – Rep. Barney Frank, an openly gay member of Congress, says he'd rather see gay rights supporters lobbying their elected officials than marching in Washington this weekend, calling the demonstration "a waste of time at best."
Frank said in an interview with The Associated Press that he considers such demonstrations to be "an emotional release" that does little to pressure Congress.
"The only thing they're going to be putting pressure on is the grass," the Massachusetts Democrat said Friday.
Thousands of gay men and women are expected to gather for Sunday's National Equality March.
