Today welcomes the news that Rep. Barney Frank (D- Mass), won’t seek re-election in 2012.
Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) will announce Monday that he is not seeking re-election, a spokesman said Monday morning.
Gee, I wonder why? It’s not like he doesn’t have one of the safest seats, right? Could it have something to do with him being the ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee? Or maybe it could be allegations of insider trading? Maybe the guy is tired after 16 terms serving his constituency? Or maybe he’s tired after 16 terms of helping himself to the trough?
Whatever the reason, I’m sure he will miss Intern Week™.
