Barney Frank Not Opposing Hagel Anymore

Right wing freak out helped him change his mind he says


Former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) walked back his opposition to President Obama's pick for Defense secretary on Monday.

Frank, who said last week before leaving Congress that he was "strongly opposed" to former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) over past comments calling a diplomatic nominee "aggressively gay," dialed down his position in an interview with the Boston Globe on Monday.
