Hotbottom did it.
As long as this story is out there, more people know about Frank’s malfeasance. His responses show he’s getting nervous.
Who can forget Sen. Chuck "You better get your money out of WaMu, it's going bust" Schumer?
i’d love to see frank and dodd in jail.
Barney Frank talking ethics???.. ethics???...
He might getting ethics lessons from Charlie Rangle..
I’m not sure Frank can even pronounce the word “ethics” correctly..
Entering into a conversation with a democrat..
Is like falling down a bunny hole.. Barney looks increasing like the Mad Hatter..
There is a divine intervention here though in that Bawney Fwank can’t pass on his genes...
Wonder how long it will take all the Newt Bashers to jump in and side with Barney.
Oh yes, we should believe Barney.
Now that is a debate I would like to see, frank trying to pull a hissy fit while debating Newt.
I don't think I can take much more of this.
Exccuuuuuze me, but I THINK something is a little wrong historically here with this article.
“The government created Freddie Mac in 1970, joining it with Fannie Mae, in an effort to make mortgages more affordable. Their troubles began in the 1990s as both took on risky loans and more debt at the urging of the Clinton and Bush administrations, which sought to increase home ownership.”\\
I’m just an old guy with a really bad memory. But I THINK Fanny and Freddie were created in THE FREAKIN 1930’S BY FDR. I read their home pages, and that’s what they say.
If I’m wrong, please someone correct me. Flame me all you want, but I do think those ‘quazi governmental’ entities waaay predate the ‘70s!!
So much bulls**t, so little time to correct.
Hoping that some other Freeper who is sane and sober can check this out.
That queer should be hung by his balls for his role in Fannie and Freddy. Ditto Chris Dodd!
If you want to put people in jail ... you ought to start with Barney Frank and Chris Dodd,
This kind of story will do nothing but help Newt.
Thank you Boston Globe.
It really sucks that this massive fee ever had to come to light. I know a large GOP ad house which was planning a major push next year focusing on Frank and Dodd and Fannie and Freddie, which was devastating. They are pissed now that Newt’s involvement will muddy the issue beyond repair as one of our strongest points against the RATs and Obama.
” The Bloomberg story reported that Gingrich earned $1.6 million to $1.8 million between 1999 to 2007.”
$1.8 Million divided by 9 years equals $200,000 per year. Nancy Pelosi makes that in 3 days of insider trading. Where is the Gingrich corruption?
Great advice to Freddy Newt. Got out just in time didn’t you?
Great advice re: who to support in the 23rd CD Newt
Are you giving advice re: climate change to the Princess of the Assembly, Newt?
Go to hell.
There’s no contest. Barney Frank and the Democrats set up Fannie and Freddie in such a way that the problems would be compounded, but whoever was running the agency at the time would make out like a bandit; think Franklin Raines. Newt got paid for the work he did, which according to the written contract, did NOT include lobbying. So Newt is not part of the Fannie and Freddie problem; that lies with Barney and his fellow Democrats, and the RINOs who enabled them to pass legislation creating the problem.
