Barney Frank Wants to Return to Washington as Senator: VIDEO


Barney Frank isn't finished, Politico reports:

Barney Frank, one day out of Congress, said on Friday that he has asked Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick to send him back as an interim senator when Sen. John Kerry becomes secretary of state.

“A month ago, or a few weeks ago, I said I wasn’t interested,” Frank said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “It was kind of like you’re about to graduate, and they said: ‘You gotta go to summer school.’ But [the fiscal cliff deal] now means that February, March and April are going to be among the most important months in American financial history.”

He added, “I’ve told the governor I would now like, frankly, to do that [serve as interim senator].”

Franks says he won't run for Kerry's seat in a summer special election.

Yesterday, he appeared on MSNBC on his final day as a Congressman, and talked about the 112th Congress, the worst ever.
