Comment: The Franklin Scandal

(See in situ)

The Franklin Scandal

didn't involve homosexual prostitution, it involved pedophilia. These young kids from Father Flanagan's Boys Town (and others) were used by Lawrence King for sex and drug parties in a house on Embassy Row in Washington, DC.

Barney Frank's significant other, Steven Gobi, was running young boys out of the basement apartment of his home in Washington. Barney claimed he didn't know anything about it. But Frank knew about Gobi's past:

"Gobie, then 28, was one of many young men "freelancing" in male prostitution. Gobie said he was born in Boston and grew up in a military family. He has felony convictions for possession of cocaine, oral sodomy and production of obscene items involving a juvenile."
