Skip to comments.Injured Barney Frank appears in sling on House floor
Posted on 12/19/2011 2:40:09 PM PST by COUNTrecount
Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), who announced earlier this year that he would not seek re-election in 2012, appeared on the House floor Wednesday in a t-shirt, jacket and with his left arm in a sling, but explained to members of the House that his injuries were minor.
"I deeply appreciate the solicitude of my colleagues on my appearance," he said. "I want to first assure them that there is much less here than meets the eye."
Frank said he wanted to explain it once to all members of the House so he would not have to repeat it, since "responding to it 400 times would seem a bit excessive."
Frank said a torn ligament was discovered, presumably in his left arm or shoulder, but that it was "easily repaired today."
"This had nothing to do with my retirement," he said. "At no point during my 31 years here was this ligament ever essential to the performance of my duties."
This isn't the first time Frank has shown up in a sling or discussed his health with his colleagues. He has also shown he gets tired when people show concern about an injury.

That's correct, it was his middle finger to America that he used the most.
He probably tried to pick up a straight guy who was upside down in his government-backed mortgage.....
Due to damage to the rear.
He got hurt in his basement.
Slipped trying to pick up his gerbil.
He needs a bra.

He got his bells in a sling.
but explained to members of the House that his injuries were (minor).
Man boobs. But he probably thinks he’s really cute. Maybe some boy toy didn’t agree.
I have to bite my tongue in order not to make any negative comments on this event.
No he needs a Manzier, or was it a Bro?
Did something rip?
I don’t even want to guess.
