Barney Frank's TARP Lies May Launch Ethics Investigation
The LID/Judicial Watch ^ | 4/3/2010 | The Lid

Posted on 04/02/2010 11:14:40 PM PDT by Shellybenoit

Last January we reported that as part of the release of TARP dollars, Congressman Barney Frank directed funds to a local Massachusetts bank Cited by regulators for excesses (they bought the CEO a Porsche). Even worse the Bank has been cited for UNSOUND Business Practices:

Frank, head of the powerful House Financial Services Committee, acknowledged that last fall he inserted into the government’s $700 billion Troubled Assets Relief Program bill specific language to help OneUnited, New England’s only black-owned bank. He also said he contacted someone at the Treasury Department about OneUnited’s application for emergency TARP funds, though he insisted he never asked Treasury to bend any rules on behalf of OneUnited.

You can’t investigate Barney Frank, that’s homophobic.

Barney is gay. So go pick on someone straight and leave him alone.

While he finishes destroying the economy.

His boyfriend who ran a gay whorehouse out of Frank’s crib no doubt generated photos.

I remember that story, I’m surprised he stayed in office after that story broke.

Why? Barney Frank is from Massachusetts. This is the same state that kept re-electing a senator who killed someone. Quite a few voters up there have 0 problems with politicians who don't behave themselves.

The MSM will never hold any Dems accountable for any wrongdoings.

If anything, they will make excuses for them and rationalize their behavior once someone else like FNC or Drudge reports the story.

They sat on the Lewinsky story and the John Edwards story for at least a year on each and neither story would have ever seen the light of day if the MSM had it their way.

The MSM are complicit enablers for the Dems, especially the Dems that are criminals and/or are “ethically challenged”

Remember how CBS/Dan Rather absolutely refused to call Gary Condit a Democrat and instead referred to him as the “Conservative Congressman from California”

I STILL want to know who started the run on the banks. Why is there no investigation; RATs had their hearings on 9/11. Can we get info through FOIA?

Every election, the RATs accuse PUBs of planning an “October surprise”. And every election, they spring one on us. Turnabout is fair play.

What is just as important as taking back this country is prosecuting these criminals! This must not go unpunished!
