U.S. Rep. Barney Frank is not known to keep his mouth shut or hold back a comment.
So it shouldn't be that much of a surprise that the retiring Congressman from Newton made another controversial comment.
Frank spoke during the commencement ceremony at UMass Dartmouth Sunday. The school gave awards to Frank and civic leader Hubert Jones.
"And Hubie, I think you now have a hoodie you can wear and no one will shoot at you. So I think you'll feel i hope pretty protected by that," Frank said. He also called Jones a great leader that he's worked with over the years.
