Called openly-gay Congressman Barney Frank "Barney Fag" during a 1995 radio show interview, but later denied it was intentional. However, on 2 August 2000, columnist (ambiguous link, Dave Barry) asked, "Are you really Dick Armey?" Armey replies: "Yes, I am Dick Armey. And if there is a dick army, Barney Frank would want to join up."

During the fervor of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, three women at North Texas State University documented inappropriate sexual behavior on the part of Dick Armey. They are Susan Aileen White, Anna Weniger, and Anne Marie Best. These incidents were particularly troublesome in that Armey runs on a platform of "Values Agenda" and "Recovering Our Moral Emphasis."
