    I'll miss him... Rep. Frank won’t run for reelection
    By Erik Wasson and Russell Berman - 11/28/11 09:54 AM ET

    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.

    Smart thing he's doing - quitting/jumping ship.
    Avoiding his landslide defeat.
    How many other Dems will choose the same path?

He was previously chairman of the House Financial Services Committee but is now ranking member when Democrats lost the majority in the 2010 midterm election

    Yes, and for those who have signatures "disabled" I offer mine to show them how them how he loved the whole subprime, low-income mess he helped create.***

    I believe there has been more alarm raised about potential unsafty and unsoundness [of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac] than, in fact, exists."- Barney Frank... 9/25/2003

    I want to roll the dice a little bit more in this situation towards subsidized housing."--Barney Frank---9/25/2005

    "Fannie and Freddie are fundamentally sound, they are not in danger of going under----I do think their prospects of going forward are very solid." -- Barney Frank-- 7/14/2008
