Impeach Barney Frank

Will the people of Massachusetts stand up and clean house? The man responsible for our current condition continues to destroy our nation and you sit back and do nothing.

Barney Frank’s hypocrisy

Ah, the dirty little secret is out. That $700 billion TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) bill was in part simply a variation on congressional pork - except this time the recipients were banks with friends in high places.

One of those powerful friends was Rep. Barney Frank (D-Newton), chairman of the House Financial Services Committee. And one of the recipients of a $12 million infusion of federal cash was the troubled OneUnited Bank in Boston - a bank that had already been accused of “unsafe and unsound banking practices.” Its CEO, Kevin Cohee had also been criticized by regulators for “excessive” pay that included a Porsche.

Frank admits he included language in the TARP legislation specifically designed to bail out OneUnited. He also acknowledges contacting officials at the Treasury Department about the bank’s bailout application.

Reading the comments attached to the Boston Herald article give me hope for the state. Now they need to put the words into action.

I will continue to battle for America. I will continue to seek out those who look to bring America back to prominence and batter down those who seek her destruction.
We have a lot of work to do.
I have visited both your blogs and am proud to know you both.
We can continue to fight this battle together.
Thanks for coming by.

Congressmen and Senators can't be impeached. They can however be expelled by the other members of their own house by a 2/3 vote.

In theory this should be much easier than an impeachment which requires both houses to act. In practice though, I don't think it will happen. Barney Frank happens to be in the majority party. In this case, a party that wouldn't dream of turning on one of its own, unlike the current minority party.

Barney Frank, Chuck Schumer and Chris Dodd are fascist pigs. I'd like to see the three of them sent to prison and spending the rest of their days busting rocks.
