However, Savage isn’t buying the powerful Democrat’s official reason for resigning. He told listeners:
Barney Franks claims it’s about “redistricting,” but all of us who’ve studied the situation know it’s not about that at all.
He’s really running away from the scandal that he paid big bonuses to his friends at the bailout-sucking Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac.
Frankly, I think he retired because he was about to be either investigated or indicted.
Remember: Barney Frank was literally sleeping with a top Fannie Mae executive while he sat on the House Banking Committee. His sexuality aside: Sorry, but that’s a foul ball.
But the question is this: How do we know Barney Frank is really leaving the public eye, one way or the other? Men like him don’t just retire and disappear.
Could he be thinking about a career as a clown at children’s parties? How about becoming assistant basketball coach at Syracuse University? Or the head of the athletic department at Penn State?
Or maybe he’ll follow in Newt Gingrich’s footsteps and become a “historical consultant” to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Remember that?
These two men are like bookends. You may not agree with me, but I see a lot of similarities between Gingrich and Barney Frank.
Like Frank, Gingrich has lived off the pork of Washington his whole life.
Gingrich is unelectable. At least I would sleep better at night if Mitt Romney were president instead of Obama.
