Barney Frank Retiring in 2012

28 Nov

Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank, the powerful top Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, will announce Monday that he is retiring from the seat he has held for more than three decades.

During his 16 terms in office, Frank emerged as an icon – a no-holds-barred, often cantankerous liberal who was at the center of the House’s most contentious policy debates – most recently playing a key role in designing the 2009 bank bailout and the financial regulatory overhaul.

He is really one of the good guys.  He called things as he saw them often with no filter.  He was most definitely on the side of the average joe.
