Barney Frank’s Seat Now Up for Grabs

Rep. Barney Frank will hold a press conference at 1 p.m. to discuss his decision not to seek re-election next year.

Redistricting might have something to do with it, or maybe Barney just feels like he’s run out of segments of the economy to help ruin. He always said he’d quit the day it stopped being fun.

I’ll bet he lands a sweet lobbying gig with Fannie Mae. Early unconfirmed reports say Frank is quitting because he got his dream job with the TSA.

Update: President Obama: “There has never been a congressman like Barney Frank and the House will not be the same without him.” – Thank God…
