Democrat Congressman Barney Frank of Massachusetts is not seeking reelection in 2012.¬† After “serving”¬† 16 terms and much destruction of the banking and housing industries, as well as Jerry Springer style scandals, we are losing one of America’s leftmost congressmen.

There is a reason to give thanks.

Barney will announce during a press conference  at 1 pm today, says CNN.
