Longtime liberal democrat, Representative Barney Frank (D-Mass), is calling it quits after serving 16 terms in the US House of Representatives. He cites that the 2012 campaign will be too strenuous for him due to redistricting.
Frank also said that he wants to devote his time to teaching, writing and lecturing. He said that he would not become a lobbyist.
Frank is now the 17th House Democrat to flat-out retire or step aside to seek other office. Republicans have announced seven retirements this cycle.
