Piss Poor Politicians Peter Pander

In its article about the House rejecting the ban of gay marriage, a bill refered to in the Republican caucus as "I'll trade your civil rights for a vote for me," the AP writes:

Rep. Barney Frank , D-Mass., one of just a few openly gay members of Congress, said he took the proposal personally.

Emphasis mine--but why, oh why is the AP holding out on us?

It's certainly better than wondering why this language got by editors:

The vote was 236-187 with one member voting "present," a slight improvement over the last House vote just before the 2004 election but still 46 short of the two-thirds majority needed to advance a constitutional amendment.
