Barney Frank Does Not Want Secret Service at Wedding

One wonders at what point the President (current or future) will say "enough" when it comes to his 'layered protection" that shuts down an "entire region" when he travels--at some point the bureaucratic mindset of "more and more" has got to be tamed:

Barney Frank Does Not Want Secret Service at Wedding - NYTimes.com: ". . . “We’re having this in the city I live in, in Newton, Massachusetts, on a Saturday afternoon. I don’t want to be accused of having shut down the entire region for a five-mile radius on a holiday weekend. I don’t want my guests going through a magnetometer. I would be flattered to have the president do that, but it would ruin the party to have the Secret Service. I’m not critical of them, but they can go take their layered protection of the president somewhere else. Not to my party.”"
