Barney Frank's Nipples Steal The Show During House Address (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Outgoing Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) appeared to have the congressional equivalent of a wardrobe malfunction Monday, when he delivered an address from the House floor and ended up being upstaged by his own chest.

Dressed in a snug, light blue crew neck shirt with a jacket draped over his shoulders -- perhaps because he's now wearing a large cast on his left hand -- Frank stood at the lectern to deliver a speech on bank failures, and instead raised questions about how cold it was in the House chamber.

Frank has announced that he will retire when his current term is up. No longer beholden to electoral politics, it's possible that we'll see some more unusual sartorial decisions before he departs the halls of Congress.

Before he decides to go with this outfit again, which doesn't appear to fit under traditional House floor dress code, perhaps he should consider tracking down a "manzier," the undergarment invented by Cosmo Kramer in the 1990s sitcom "Seinfeld."
