Barney Frank and his longtime partner will soon say "I do."
AP reports that Frank and his partner, Jim Ready, plan to marry. No date has been set for the Frank/Ready wedding, but a spokesman for Frank confirmed it will take place in Massachusetts.
Frank, a Massachusetts Democrat, is the first openly gay member of Congress. Last year, Frank served as chairman of the House Financial Services Committee and was a major force behind the sweeping overhaul of financial regulations.
As we reported last fall, Frank, 71, announced that he will not seek re-election in 2012.
