A Democrat Who Wants to Mind His Own Business?

Something looms under the surface here:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank on Wednesday said he will introduce a bill this week to lift a ban on online gambling.

“Why anyone thinks it is any of my business why some adult wants to gamble is absolutely beyond me,” Frank told a community bankers group conference.

Frank’s sudden an unexpected interest in minding his own business, a tenet so foreign to Democrats that it’s issued a Green Card on those rare occasions it rears its head, has me wondering what’s up with this. Feel free to speculate.
