Barney Frank threw a fit when he was refused a senior discount. For $1. Yes. A meltdown over O-N-E dollar:
Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank caused a scene when he demanded a $1 senior discount on his ferry fare to Fire Island . . . . Frank was turned down by ticket clerks at the dock in Sayville because he didn’t have the required Suffolk County Senior Citizens ID. A witness reports, “Frank made such a drama over the senior rate that I contemplated offering him the dollar to cool down the situation.”
So here we have a guy who is notoriously liberal with other people’s money having a hissy over a buck. An alleged man of the people giving a poor clerk a hard time because he can’t follow the rules.
Would it be too much to ask Frank to show the same miserly attitude about other people’s money as he apparently does with his own?
We all know the answer to that, don’t we?
