Barney Frank justifies his using influence to get his boyfriend Herb Moses a job at Fannie Mae on the grounds that “everybody does it.”

Let’s Do It
—apologies to Cole Porter and “Let’s Do It”

Sneaks do it, sleaze do it
Frankly, congressional Barneys do it
Let’s do it
Let’s pull some strings

To avoid troublesome vets, do it
To be one of them that gets, do it
Let’s do it
Let’s pull some strings

If you want to pocket more, do it
And you’ll get a sinecure
If you’re lover’s a whore, do it
And you’ll make his job secure

Yes, that’s why fat cats do it
And connected Democrats do it
Let’s do it
Let’s pull some strings
