Today, one of the most morally corrupt, economically damaging bastions of the House of Representatives has announce that he won’t be seeking reelection. In his last election, he narrowly (54%) defeated an unknown opponent in a heavily Democratic district. Now, due to redistricting of that area, he would have faced a much stiffer challenge with Brookline School Committee member Elizabeth Childs (R) or State Rep. Dan Winslow (R) waiting to run against him. Regardless of who wins his seat, (D or R) this will be a marked improvement over the person the people of Massachusetts have chosen to curse the rest of the country with. We all recall Barney Frank’s assurances that our federally subsidized banks, Freddie and Fannie, were in solid financial conditions while he had oversight of the banks when the Dems were in the majority of the House in 2007 and 08.
Even though he admitted to a lengthy relationship with a male prostitute who ran a bisexual prostitution service out of Frank’s apartment, he hasn’t announced any future plans to resume with such services.
