Rep. Frank Slams Town Hall Foe in Mass. Debate

Wednesday, 08 Sep 2010 07:06 AM

 

Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank has criticized his Democratic primary challenger and former town hall foe for comparing President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler.

The 15-term congressman said Tuesday during his debate with Rachel Brown that the 29-year-old and her supporters offend many by carrying signs with Obama sporting a Hitler mustache.

Brown asked Frank at a town hall last year about his support for what she termed the "Nazi policy" of health care reform. Frank responded that talking to her was "like arguing with a dining room table."

Brown said Frank's criticism motivated her to run against him in the Sept. 14 primary for the state's 4th Congressional District.

On the Republican side, two businessmen are fighting for their party's nomination.
