The police found bongs, plants and paraphernalia. Frank’s boyfriend, James Ready, admitted it was all his and paid a fine. Bombastic Barney claims he was “on the other side of the house” and has no clue what pot plants even look like. As my twenty-something friends would say, “whatevs.”
BOSTON (FOX25, myfoxboston) – FOX25 has learned that Congressman Barney Frank was present during a marijuana arrest at James Ready’s home in Ogunquit, Maine. Ready is well-known for his relationship with Congressman Frank.
According to a police report, police charged Ready with marijuana possession, cultivation and use of drug paraphernalia in August of 2007. Ready admitted to civil possession and paid a fine. The remaining charges were dismissed in 2008.
Sources tell FOX25 that when Frank was questioned he told police that he did not live in the house and that he only smoked cigars.
Congressman Frank tells FOX25 that he was surprised and disappointed with what police found. He also tells us that he wouldn’t recognize a marijuana plant if he saw one because he is, “not a great outdoorsman,” and ,”wouldn’t recognize most plants.”
Fox 25 spoke to Frank yesterday. He gets testy with the reporter when she presses him on his claim of Mary J. ignorance.
