Rep. Frank Slams Town Hall Foe in Mass. Debate

NEWTON, Mass. (AP) - 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.
