Why Barney Frank Quit

On November 28, 2011, after 16 terms and 30 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, Massachusetts Democrat Congressman Barney Frank shocked everyone when he announced he’s retiring and won’t be seeking reelection next year.

One of the ten most corrupt politicians of 2009, Frank long served and chaired the House’s powerful Financial Services Committee that supposedly supervises Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and financial institutions such as the bankrupt thieving MF Global.

Speculations abound as to why Miz Barney’s quitting, with most centering around the redrawing of Massachusetts’ electoral districts which will make more difficult his reelection.

Here’s the real reason!
