    How are you figuring there's not enough to resign?

    If a male employer went to a wedding with some young female employees, got drunk, said something to the effect of "I should be ****ing you," and then stroked that girl's hair, does anyone doubt that that could constitute sexual harassment?

    A viable sexual harassment claim is reason enough for a Congressman to resign, and when you add in the fact that it's a same-sex harassment allegation, he's a married man, and he's supposedly suffering from a recurrence of his cancer, I would have been astonished had he not resigned.

    Can you believe they continue to elect this absolute liar and criminal. Anyone else hires a prostitute in the House or Senate and they are DONE. Fried.

    The fact that Frank still sits in that House seat says everything that needs to be said about Democrats. None of this scandal or sexual misconduct upsets them in the least, they merely use it for political gain. As they do most issues of outrage. Casper the Friendly Ghost transparence.

    Barney Frank - Top 10 Political Sex Scandals - TIME

    only in massachusetts

    while overseeing fannie and fred in the house, barney's newest boyfirend, herb moses (a dignified gentleman more the congressman's age), was an exec for fannie (the bank), which made for another embarrassing conflict for mr frank

    Barney Frank - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In 2003, while the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee, Frank opposed a Bush administration proposal for transferring oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from Congress and the Department of Housing and Urban Development to a new agency that would be created within the Treasury Department. The proposal reflected the administration's belief that Congress "neither has the tools, nor the stature" for adequate oversight. Frank stated, "These two entities...are not facing any kind of financial crisis.... The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing."[48] The two companies, which together own or back more than half the home mortgages in the US became "hobbled" by loan defaults.[49] Frank clarified in 2009 that Fannie and Freddie were not in crisis at the time and many financial institutions, like Lehman Brothers, also fell into crisis from 2003 to 2008.[50]

    Conservative groups criticized Frank for campaign contributions totaling $42,350 between 1989 and 2008. They claim the donations from Fannie and Freddie influenced his support of their lending programs, and say that Frank did not play a strong enough role in reforming the institutions in the years leading up to the Economic crisis of 2008.[51][52] Frank's former partner, Herb Moses, was an executive at Fannie from 1991 to 1998, where Moses helped develop many of Fannie’s housing and home improvement lending programs. In 1991, Frank pushed for reduced restrictions on two- and three-family home mortgages. During the time that Frank was in a relationship with Moses, he blocked tougher regulations on the banking companies while voting for the Government Sponsored Housing Enterprises Financial Safety and Soundness Act of 1991 and the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992.[53] Frank and Moses' relationship ended around the same time Moses left the company.[54]

    Hey, I find it brilliant.

    Prof packs a plethora of punch with points in puny paragraphs.

    That's about all I got. LOL

    I have. The DC madam thing I believe, his phone number was found on one of her lists.

    And if she was allowed to prostitute out of the home Vitter owned and then Dave tried to explain to you and I that he had no knowledge....you wouldn't be lol-ing...you'd be calling for his ouster.

    Spare me your pretend objectivity, liblady.
