Rep. Barney Frank won't run for reelection
Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) announced Monday that he will not seek reelection in 2012, ending a three-decade 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.
He announced his decision at an afternoon press conference in his hometown of Newton, Mass., where he said redistricting played a major role in his retirement.
"I was planning to run again, and then congressional redistricting came," Frank said.

Good. One less scumbag in public office. Good riddance to the man most singly responsible for the collapse of the housing market.

If anything negative could come out of ol' Barney leaving is his replacement inline for his seat on the finacial services board is Maxine Waters .Although they are pretty much the same people i would almost rather have Barney. Maxine is the one who came out and said she/they would just take over companies and admitted she was for flat out socialism.
