Washington (CNN) -- Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, a prominent 16-term liberal Democrat and arch-enemy of political conservatives nationwide, will announce Monday he does not intend to seek re-election in 2012, according to a statement from Frank's office.

Frank will hold a news conference in his district to discuss the decision at 1 p.m.

From David Hawkings' Daily Briefing (Congressional Quarterly/Rollcall) which comes into my inbox every day at lunchtime:

"The decision amounts to a tacit acknowledgment that he and other Democrats have concluded they have no real shot at reclaiming the House majority next fall, when Frank will be 72. (He is the ninth House Democrat this year to announce retirement plans.)"

Barney Frank to Announce He Won't Seek Re-Election (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2011/11/28/barney-frank-to-announce-retirement/#ixzz1f1Pg8kRv)
- Fox News

Longtime Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., will announce Monday he is not seeking re-election, holding an afternoon press conference in Newton, Mass., to offer details behind his decision.

The 16-term lawmaker, whose name is emblazoned on the banking reform law that passed Congress last year, had long been rumored to be ready for retirement. He was previously chairman of the House Financial Services Committee but is now ranking member since Democrats lost the majority in the 2010 midterm election.

The Dodd-Frank law, a contentious set of provisions that Republicans say add layers of regulatory burdens without preventing potential future meltdowns, was made in response to the near collapse of the banking industry in 2008. Among other actions, it created a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to oversee access to banking products and required listing ratios of executive pay to median employee salaries.

Frank, 71, was first elected to the House in 1980, and is one of the first lawmakers to announce he is homosexual. >>>

Frank is now the 17th House Democrat to flat-out retire or step aside to seek other office. Republicans have announced seven retirements this cycle. He is also the second House Democrat to announce his retirement in three days and the second Massachusetts Democrat to say he's stepping down. Rep. Charlie Gonzalez of Texas announced his retirement over the weekend. Rep. John Olver decided a few weeks ago not to run for another term.

Barney Frank blames redistricting in decision to quit



A somewhat bitter U.S. Rep. Barney Frank said today he will not seek re-election in 2012 in a move he said was triggered by redistricting that left him with too many new constituents to serve as a “lame-duck” legislator.


“There are too many constraints,” Frank said about his life as a politician and the energy it would take to meet new voters so late in his tenure.


“People are skeptical about incumbents,” he added. “There was also this — I don’t like raising money.”

About what I guessed. They redrew his district, and now he is guessing he may not be able to win another term. So then face a defeat, he's retiring.

Ether way, good-riddens.

I agree. But the "dancing queen" will now retire on our dime. And to add insult to injury he made off with about $40 million (via boyfriend he got a job for) at/from Fannie and Freddie. Life is good if your corrupt or a pervert in todays democrat party.

Exit Barney Frank (http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/284273/exit-barney-frank-editors)

Rep. Barney Frank will be remembered for three things: First, he was not only the first openly gay member of Congress but the first involved in a gay-prostitution scandal. Second, he said, “I do not want the same kind of focus on safety and soundness” regarding Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as exercised with regard to other government-affiliated agencies, preferring, as he memorably put it, to “roll the dice a little bit.” Third, he was co-author of the Frank-Dodd financial-reform legislation. Which is to say, Representative Frank will be remembered as an embarrassment, a reckless gambler, and a legislative malefactor.

Representative Frank was not much of a crusader on gay-rights issues, which was just as well. On the substance of those issues, he was on the wrong side. As a symbol, he was toxic — a powerful politician whose homosexual orientation was hardly the most remarkable feature of his private life, which included involvement with a gay hustler and convicted drug dealer whom the congressman was paying for sex, and who ended up running a prostitution operation out of the congressman’s home. Representative Frank was reprimanded by the House for making misleading statements to a Virginia prosecutor on behalf of the prostitute — whom the congressman eventually put on his own payroll — and for having fixed dozens of parking tickets on his behalf. Americans are broadly tolerant of homosexuality; they are rightly less tolerant of prostitution and political corruption. The congressman’s self-pitying account of the episode made the bad situation worse.

But though his private life spilled over into his public duties, it is as a champion of a different kind of pay-for-play operation, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, that the congressman did the most damage to the country. more ...

Barny Fwank did not want to risk a humiliating defeat- plain and simple. He is a coward in that regard. He did plenty of damage to this country and was one of the top three people to blame for the economic downfall of the country. He and his lefty butt kissers who share his diseased ideology are the reason that this country is headed rapidly toward bankruptcy. Go ahead liberals, kiss his butt all you want, it wont change the facts. Sure, he's gay, but that has nothing to do with his being a vile, reprehensible, detestable, despicable POC. No, his choice of sex partner only adds to his negative reputation, it does not define him.:cool:

Frank In Salary Negotiations For Elmer Fudd Role


NEW YORK – DreamWorks Studios announced today that they are in the final stages of salary negotiations with Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank for their new Looney Tunes Bugs Bunny movie. Frank is slated to play Elmer Fudd in the five hundred million dollar, two part, six hour movie epic. The Congressman expressed interest in the role when he heard that Bugs Bunny was going to be played by an actor who has expressed conservative political views in the past. We talked with Congressman Frank over brunch in the West Village where he was visiting a friend.

“It was wight before our summer wecess,” he recalled, “and Hawwy Weid took me aside and infowmed me that the character of Bugs Bunny was going to be played by a wacially insensitive wight wing wepublican!”

I personally couldn't care less where Barney puts his penis. His wrongs go substantially beyond his personal proclivities starting with the fact that almost no single member of Congress is more culpable for consciously causing and then ignoring what led to one of the greatest financial disasters in history. That's his real legacy and one that history will preface his chapter with, leaving his sexual disorientation as a minor footnote.

I am delighted he has chosen to discontinue inflicting himself upon this nation and I am grateful that his disservice is coming to an end. If only it had happened a decade ago.

The funny thing about this video is that a) liberals either refuse what is said or have wiped it from memory Men in Black style and b) continue to blame Bush for the housing meltdown. Even Frank himself refuses to acknowledge his own shortcomings not to mention Frank declared that Fannie and Freddie were sound and O'Reilly ripped him a new one for doing so:
