    Who'da thunk it? The Democrats push out Mr. Frank

    As the ever-honest Mr. Frank explains his retirement from congress, he keeps bringing up the redistricting plan as one of the top two things that are driving him from office.

    It is the best thing that ever happened in America by getting rid of this bum.
    He is A lying bum who screwed up Fannie and Freddie by letting them give loans to people who never should have gotten them. So if any one thing that is good for America it is his getting his big mouth out of congress

    If your name were Edward Moore...

    Steve LeBlanc's article, February 16, claims the Fourth District "stretches...to Fall River." While it stretches on now to New Bedford, it won't in the future. That was a key element of the reason Rep. Frank gave for retiring. He had invested heavily in the South Coast, to the extent that he was rarely seen in some other parts of the district.

    [ Steve LeBlanc, Associated Press, Joseph Kennedy, III, announcing bid for Congress in Massachusetts, Boston Globe, February 16, 2012, at http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2012/02/15/ap_source_joe_kennedy_iii_announcing_congress_bid_1329339493/ ]

    The current district has welcomed carpetbaggers, but the revised Fourth District will be closer to the outlines before the 1972 gerrymander that stretched it northwest to Gardner and the 1982 gerrymander that flipped and stretched it southeast to New Bedford.

    Historically that was not a liberal district, electing Republicans from early twentieth century through the Great Depression until Harold Donohue, 1947-1973, a conservative Democrat who supported the Vietnam War until 1969 and who opposed legalizing abortion.
