With Barney Frank’s marriage I’ve seen some outrage about the age gap between him and his partner.
Claims like ‘If a straight congressman married someone 30 years younger people would be outraged’
Barney Frank and his partner enjoying any bit of happiness is sure to outrage someone somewhere, so I hardly think outrage is a reasonable measurement to be applied here.
My question is what is the largest age difference between and any sitting congressman and their spouse? What was/is the record? What is the average?
My googling didn’t yield any specific chart so I’ll take any specific congress-critter that comes to mind.
You can throw U.S. Senators into the mix if you wish
My Congressman is John Olver his wife is less then a year younger then him so he isn’t setting any records.
