Default Barney Frank not seeking reelection?

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/updates/2155

Well, damn. Dude's smart, not afraid to speak his mind, and just about the only serving legislator I would actually describe as remotely "liberal" in any meaningful sense.

Barney not running. The Libertards will be doing back flips. Bernie Sanders is the last man standing.

Has he said why not yet? I'll bet the head banging the wall might have something to do with it.

In his live press conference, Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) offered a laundry list of reasons for retirement, among them: the fact he would be campaigning in a new district, meaning it would be a tough re-election; the fact that he doesn’t like raising money; and the desire to spend his next few years focusing on academic writing.

Unstated reason: He was caught in an expensive hotel room with an appropriately aged woman. SCANDAL!

:gayladyburn:

lol that probably would be treated like a scandal. After Weinergate, I am convinced that the media can blow anything out of proportion. :lol:
