Grapevine: Rep. Barney Frank marries long-time boyfriend

Becomes first congressman in same-sex marriage


And now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine...

Candid Camera

House Democrats are taking home videos to a new level that some say amounts to stalking. 
both parties utilize campaign trackers, operatives who follow opponents around recording their every move and every speech.

However, Politico reports Democrats aren't just posting public speeches online for all to see they're videotaping the Republicans' homes and including exact addresses in some cases.

Republicans say it's a gross invasion of privacy and could pose danger for the politicians' families. Democratic officials are not backing down, they say the videos serve a useful purpose and candidates are public figures.

Babe Gets His Wings

A new draft manual from the Transportation Department says pot-bellied pigs must be granted passage on airplanes if they are used for emotional support by their owners. 

As long as the animal does not obstruct the aisle or present safety issues pigs really can fly.

Just Married

Finally, Massachusetts Democrat Barney Frank is now the first congressman in a same sex marriage. 

Frank married longtime boyfriend Jim Ready over the weekend in Boston. Their vows were unique to say the least and read in part -– quote -- "Do you promise to love each other...in sickness and in health, in Congress or in retirement, under the Democrats or the Republicans... for better or for worse, on MSNBC or on Fox, for as long as you both shall live."
