    Fidelity Investments holds big fundraiser for Barney Frank, raising thousands of dollars for his campaign fund. Supporting Congressman connected to financial crisis, hate crimes bill, more. May 5, 2009 US Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) is probably among the most despised members of Congress these days. As Chairman of the House Banking Committee, most people have seen his arrogant, condescending manner in various television interviews over the past several months. Barney Frank's recent activities seem to range across the spectrum (and this is just his recent stuff): Financial meltdown. Frank's complicity in this country's financial crisis has become legendary.

    Former Missouri defensive end Michael Sam became the first openly gay player in NFL history to be drafted when the Rams took him with the 249th pick on Saturday, but Sam almost didn't make history because he almost fell out of the draft. Sam was taken with the eighth-to-last pick, meaning he almost wasn't drafted at all, something he found rather shocking. The NFL's first openly gay player said he should've been picked higher. "From last season alone, I should've been in the first three rounds -- SEC Defensive player of the year, All-American," Sam said, listing off his 2013...

    (Reuters) - U.S. Democratic Representative Barney Frank wed his longtime partner, James Ready, on Saturday, becoming the first sitting congressman to enter into a same-sex marriage. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick officiated the ceremony and added some levity by saying Frank, 72, and Ready, 42, had vowed to love each other through Democratic and Republican administrations alike, and even through appearances on Fox News, according to Al Green, a Democratic congressman from Texas. "Barney was beaming," said Green, who attended the ceremony. He added that Frank, a champion of gay rights and the sweeping reform of Wall Street, shed a tear...

In a proclamation earlier this month, the president stressed that his administration has worked to “level the playing field for lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people.” Obama’s recent declaration of support for gay marriage was celebrated as a key endorsement among gay rights groups. After the reception, the first family leaves for Chicago, where they will spend the night.

Daniel Garcia, whose application for a temporary stay of his deportation order was dismissed by the Federal Court on Friday, was set to board a plane back to Mexico, although his lawyer said the government has not disclosed when the flight would take place. Lawyer Joel Sandaluk said Garcia's deportation itinerary was "blacked out," something he called "very unusual." "I've been doing this for 10...

While WikiLeak.org is slated to release a new video of an alleged "massacre" by U.S. forces in Afghanistan, a 22 year old Pfc Army intelligence analyst serving in Iraq was detained about a month ago, accused of being the source of the leaked "Collateral Murder" video.

    Bradley Manning, 22, had just gone through a breakup. He had been demoted a rank in the Army after striking a fellow soldier. He felt he had no future, and yet he thought that by sharing classified information about his government's foreign policy, he might "actually change something." A series of instant messages from Manning to a stranger open a window into the anguished state of the former Army intelligence analyst, who was detained late last month for allegedly leaking classified video and documents to Wikileaks.org. The military has not detailed the allegations against Manning, who is being held in...

As the clock neared 1 a.m., the two sides were at an impasse. Mr. Obama stood up. “ ‘See what you guys can figure out,’ ” one participant remembers him saying, adding that the failed effort left the president mad.

    More than Ł1 million worth of counterfeit cigarettes filled with rabbit droppings instead of tobacco have been confiscated by customs officials in Spain. The fake cigarettes - due to be sold on the black market as famous brands - were discovered after British holidaymakers in the Canary Islands smelled a rat whenever they lit up. "They stunk. They smell just as you'd imagine burning poo to smell," said one customs official in Tenerife. Police and customs staff arrested 12 smugglers in an undercover operation to intercept the cigarettes as they landed on a boat from China. "They not only smell...

Baldwin, who currently stars in the NBC comedy "30 Rock," told Playboy magazine that he is seriously considering running for Congress. But he acknowledged his opponents would have plenty of fodder to use against him. "I'll put it this way," he told the magazine. "The desire is there; that's one component. The other component is opportunity." A native New Yorker, Baldwin said he has been approached by an unnamed Democratic law firm who wanted...

There was one little problem with 22-year-old Floyd Elliot’s story: The superficial wound was backward, as if it were made while looking into a mirror. Officials yesterday said that the slur also was burned into Elliot’s chest but said it was not backward. They say he filed the original report on Dec. 14 because he wanted more officers to patrol his Independence neighborhood.
