(Politico) – Former Rep. Barney Frank, who wrote in POLITICO Magazine this month about the dilemmas he faced as a gay member of Congress who kept his sexuality private for 32 years, says that if Illinois Republican Rep. Aaron Schock is gay, he should be “exposed” due to his voting record on gay issues.

“When you are in public office and you vote opposite to the way you live your life, no I don’t think you have privacy,” Frank told ABC News in a video published Friday. “Anyone who is gay and votes in an anti-gay fashion has, it seems to me, lost their right to privacy, because it’s been converted to a right to hypocrisy.”

Frank also defended a joke he made earlier this week about Schock’s sexual orientation, following the Peoria-based representative’s announcement that he is resigning from office effective March 31.

In an interview with Business Insider, Frank, noting Schock’s toned physique, said, “He spent entirely too much time in the gym for a straight man.”
