Philip Frank, the significant other of Representative Mark Pocan of Madison, Wisconsin was issued the ID recently, granting him recognition as being the spouse of the Congressman, as opposed to a guest. Frank and Pocan were wed in a Canadian ceremony in 2006, but the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) only recognizes marriage as being between a man and a woman.
In the past, homosexual partners of federal lawmakers have been issued a designee ID as opposed to a spousal ID, which Frank maintained until approximately two weeks ago.

This is disgusting.
MATTHEW 24:37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
Nice to see Boehner was on the case.
I am sure they are a cute couple-—of bung holer’s.
Sexual deviants on Capitol Hill.
God is not mocked.
I would not want to be in their shoes on Judgment Day.
Answering the question of who’s Mark Pocan in Madison....
................Representative Mark Pocan of Madison, Wisconsin..................
Pocan! Is that his full name??
Or is his full name Poc-anus???
Why do they do this? I don’t think about congresscritters having sex...now whenever I see Mark Pocan or his name...ugh. If you can swim in the lake or the ocean, why would you choose a septic tank?
The MINORITY leader gets her way? Where the hell is Boner on this?
This says Pelosi got the House Sergeant at Arms to do this.
This is some kind of protocol change.
It isn’t subject to majority rule, it isn’t voted on like a law.
My guess is that the House Speaker is not in control of the Sergeant at Arms of the House.
Is the spouse’s last name now Pocan-Frank? Too funny.
sick. from my state too.
Ithn’t that thweeeet! /sarc
That degenerate coward Boehner with the rasta son in law that has has an arrest record for pot ought to grow a tiny pair and take it away.
nothing new here...
So basically they are violsting Federal Law.
What a surprise.
So I guess the House leadership’s defense of DOMA at the Supreme Court was an expensive sham to attempt to satisfy cultural conservatives because now they’ve essentially said ‘nevermind’.
Relative of Bowny Fwank?
