Democratic U.S. Rep. Barney Frank says supporting Republican congressional hopeful Richard Tisei will set back efforts to expand gay rights—even though both Frank and Tisei are openly gay.

Frank, who supports fellow Democrat and incumbent 6th District Rep. John Tierney, said electing Tisei will ensure Republicans retain control of the U.S. House, effectively blocking any gay rights bills.

Tisei is hoping to oust Tierney.
