Corrupt Democrat Barney Frank Not Seeking Re-election in 2012

Barney Frank not seeking re-election in 2012


Massachusetts congressman Barney Frank, a prominent 16-term liberal Democrat and arch-enemy of political conservatives nationwide, announced Monday he does not intend to seek re-election in 2012, according to a statement from Frank's office.

Frank, 71, said his decision to retire from Congress was prompted partly by changes made to the boundaries of his U.S. House district. As part of Massachusetts' recently concluded redistricting process, Frank's 4th Congressional District will lose the heavily Democratic blue-collar port city of New Bedford while gaining several smaller, more conservative towns.

"I will miss this job, (but) the district is very substantially changed," with roughly 325,000 new constituents, Frank told reporters. The veteran congressman said he was planning to retire after 2014 regardless, but said he didn't "want to be torn" next year between the need to serve his existing constituents, reach out to new district residents and protect his signature Dodd-Frank financial regulatory reform law.

Wild Thing's comment.......

I heard on TV that Barney Frank almost did not get elected the last time, so if they redistrict his area they said he is almost sure not to win his next election.

If there was real justice in the world, Barney would be headed to prison for the things he has done. What he did with Fannie Mae and Mac was HUGE in how bad it was.

Bye Bye Barney Fwank.
