Steve Gobie says: "When I play pool I am planning six shots ahead. It's that way with everything." He says: "I always had a knack of associating myself with very good people." He says: "I am not going to let something happen to me without making something good out of it." Gobie is not supposed to be talking. Penthouse magazine has purchased the rights to his stories for an undisclosed sum of money that, judging from his current digs and a pair of previous evictions, he can ill afford to lose.

The House Ethics Committee voted Tuesday to conduct a preliminary investigation of Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), who has acknowledged employing a male prostitute as a personal aide after initially hiring him for sex. Although Frank had formally sought the investigation, the committee chairman, Rep. Julian C. Dixon (D-Los Angeles), told reporters that the decision "was not based on his request" but on the panel's own initiative.

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), one of two acknowledged homosexuals in the House of Representatives, admitted Friday that he had employed a male prostitute as a personal aide, but he said that he fired him after learning that the congressman's Capitol Hill apartment was being used as a house of prostitution. Frank said he met the man, whom he identified as Steve Gobie, through an ad in a Washington gay newspaper in 1985 and paid to have sex with him.

Pressure increased Tuesday on Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) to resign from the House rather than endure the humiliation of an Ethics Committee investigation into his recent admission that he paid a male prostitute for sex and then hired him as a personal aide. Frank suffered his latest setback when House Minority Leader Robert H. Michel (R-Ill.) declared that the Massachusetts congressman's troubles were becoming "a stain upon the House of Representatives."

After nearly 10 years as "one of the truly gifted legislators of our time" (so says the Almanac of American Politics), Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) is being badgered to get out of politics because he was involved for 18 months with a male prostitute. Those demanding his ouster, including the super-civil-libertarian Boston Globe and various political columnists, including some liberals, should be asked: Where's your sense of due process? What's happened to your respect for popular democracy?
