Newton News: Barney Frank Up Close
Congressman Barney Frank has been in the political arena for decades. Frank started out as a political aide before winning his first elected position in 1972 as a Democratic Representative for the 4th then 8th Suffolk Districts in Massachusetts. He decided to set his sights higher when Father Robert Drinan stepped down as US Representative for the 4th Congressional District in 1980. Frank won with 52 percent of the vote against Republican Richard Jones. Frank has remained in this seat since 1981. But now Congressman Frank has decided to retire and is here in the studio to discuss his decision to step down as well as what he has done in the past and what he may do in the future.
