Barney Frank, the former left-wing Congressman from Massachusetts who had a prostitution ring running out of his DC apartment, is coming to town next month to raise money for perennial political candidate Andrew Romanoff (D-Denver).
A fundraising invitation obtained by Colorado Peak Politics shows Frank is hosting an event in Denver on September 8th for Romanoff’s latest campaign — this time for the 6th Congressional District.
This marks the second controversial Democrat to come to Colorado for Romanoff’s campaign in as many months. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the most hated leader in Congress, was in Denver last week to raise money for Romanoff.
Both Pelosi and Frank represent the left wing of the Democratic Party in Congress and are likely not the image that Romanoff is seeking to present to constituents. We’re sure he’s more than glad to take the dollars from their events, but in a swing district like CD6, Romanoff better hope voters don’t see him in the same vein.
It’s also worth noting the event is in Denver — which is not in CD6 — as Romanoff has struggled to figure out where exactly he’s campaigning this time around. Last month, he was caught publishing pictures on Facebook that he alleged were with “constituents”, when, in fact, they were from his 2010 Senate run, including one picture taken in front of The Denver Post building on Colfax. CD6 is based in Aurora.
