    Another rat jumping off the sinking ship.

    He's the first since the mid-terms, I believe and no doubt he's not the last over the next several months.

    now he can devote more time to his pursuit of gay sex with underage boys

    Few have done so much harm to this nation as Barney Frank.

    Benedict Arnold, Tokyo Rose, the Rosenburgs, Jane Fonda.........he's somewhere in there.

    I think in light of this that Frank should be scrutinized closer. IOW, why now is this particular rat jumping ship? He needs to be investigated.

    It is because of the way they restructured his district. This news actually isn't all that surprising.

    Interesting that after all he has achieved in the liberal scheme of things, and now all of the sudden he packs it in? Funny how after a book outlining how these rats scammed the system comes out, he gets out. He is a crook, and should be investigated, by an independent entity.

    Good to hear. The more of these long termed corrupt politicians that get replaced the better.

    You can bet it has something to do with his Campaign War Chest, that's for sure.

    It's gonna be hard for him to use the old "I'd like to spend more time with my family" excuse. LOL

    This guy is a lifer, so this is not because he wants to step down. He's running from the boogeyman.
