He's Out

Barney Frank won’t seek reelection next year, undoubtedly to spend more time with his family.


Will somebody please report in from MA and tell me if there’s a challenge brewing amongst the Democrats against Frank? He’s a good backbencher (no jokes, please) and has spent enough time now in the minority, that I doubt the prospect of two more years of minority-member status drove his decision.

So what is? Another scandal? He’s survived plenty of those already. He can’t be sick of the taste of Washington’s culture of corruption, since he’s one of its chefs. It would take… well, it would take a miracle for a Republican to unseat him.

So what’s going on back east? Chime in and let me know.
