Israeli Newspaper Misidentified U.S. Senator As "Gay"

Earlier today, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz referred to Senator Al Franken (D-Minn) as "gay" in an entry on Twitter.  This, of course, would be a surprise to his wife Franni.  Why Franken was identified as "gay" is not known, but one reported possibility is that he was confused with openly gay former Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass), who has never been a U.S. Senator.  Franken has recently come out (if you'll forgive the expression) in favor of the recently-negotiated nuclear deal with Iran.  Besides being a Senator, he has also written and performed for NBC's Saturday Night Live, and has written books and screenplays.
