Barney “the Gay Dinosaur” Frank Drops Out of 2012 Re-Election Bid

Probably the only other thing he’s ever dropped is a bar of soap:

Rep. Frank won’t run for reelection

The Hill

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) will announce Monday that he is not seeking re-election, ending a 32-year career in the House.

Frank, 71, is the top Democrat on the Financial Services Committee and the architect, with former Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), of the sweeping Wall Street regulatory reform law enacted in 2010.

He is scheduled to hold a press conference at 1 p.m. in his district, according to a spokesman, who said the congressman would announce at that time the reason for his decision. His retirement will deprive the House of one of its most colorful characters, a man known for his quick and often caustic wit.

Nope.  The article doesn’t mention his pot smoking nor his homosexual lover at Fannie Mae, Herb Moses.  Instead, we are treated to this:

His legislative legacy is likely to be the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill that passed in 2010 in the wake of the Wall Street meltdown that sent the economy into a tailspin in 2008. Hailed by the Obama administration, the law has drawn sharp criticism in the Republican presidential nomination fight, and one leading contender, former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), even suggested that Frank be jailed, along with Dodd, for their support of the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the lead-up to the financial crisis.

And, which financial institutions responsible for the 2008 crash were exempted from Barney’s Dodd-Frank Financial Deform Legislation?  Fannie & Freddie, that’s who!

  1. It’s ridiculous that in order to rid America of this stain on the American flag, Barney has to not run for re-election. Voters would have voted for him again. Dude is just nasty!


  2. With his departure we can override all his votes and set things right within congress… (or not).

    Meanwhile he was quite the joke of a person.

    After all…

    Having a gay ‘room-mate’ running gay hookers out of his apartment.

    Trying to out supposed gay republicans

    And supporting the hamas jihadis

    When men like Frank have a reprobate mind, the American people bail out the global economy. This is a great example of why our foreFathers did not allow Homosexuals in positions of leadership.

  4. Pete Says:

    It is a sad state of affairs when someone like barney frank gets reelected time after time, kind of like sen. byrd of west virginia, 48 years in the senate finally died at 92, in these 48 years was there NO ONE in all of west virginia better than byrd? It just goes to show how stupid the voter is to reelect frank this two faces charlatan for 32 years.

    I have nothing against frank for being a homosexual, there have been many homosexuals who have served this country with distinction. But I have nothing but bitter animosity against him for flaunting his position and along with that crook dodd nearly sending the US into another depression and blaming everyone but himself for the fiasco he helped cause. A narcissist of the worst order.
