Barney Frank - Re-elected by Very Rich People
Barney Frank - probably nationwide the most despised member of a most despised Congress - was easily re-elected yesterday.
He won by around 24,000 votes in the gerrymandered 4th Congressional district.
But that if you look at the town-by-town breakdown, you'll see that the entire differential comes from but 2 tony towns - Brookline and Newton.
And both of those towns sport households earning very healthy incomes - probably around 150k each ON AVERAGE.
And yet somehow....Barney is seen as the vanguard of the *little guy*!
