OUT: VENTURING DOWN THE HALL // IN: VENTURING DOWN TO SOUTH AMERICA

Democratic Congressman Barney Frank didn’t even have to leave his house to get buns; his male companion, prostitute Stevie Gobie, was invited to stay at the Massachusetts rep’s place and perform various paid tasks for him. (Ha!) This wound up backfiring, however, after said man-friend began using Frank’s digs as his own personal brothel. Perhaps he should’ve followed Mark Sanford’s example, who 20 years later, revealed just how far politicians were willing to go for their secret lovers: Argentina. After sketchily disappearing for close to a week, the South Carolina governor admitted that he’d been carrying on a yearlong affair with a woman in Buenos Aires.
