Rep. Barney Frank Mocks Newt Gingrich

During a press conference in Newton, Massachusetts, Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) took a shot at current GOP front runner Newt Gingrich, quipping, “I will neither be a lobbyist or a historian” (video below) and “I didn’t think I lived a good enough life to see Newt Gingrich be the Republican nominee.” Frank said he would be interested to debate the repeal of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act with the (three time married and admitted adulterer) former House Speaker.

Frank also attributed his decision not to seek re-election in 2012 to the redistricting underway in the state of Massachusetts and a long-standing decision to exit public life before his 75th birthday. Frank added that he was weary of campaigning in a new district and worried that the addition of new constituents would force him to abandon signature issues.
