Barney Frank

Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank may be retiring at the end of this term, but he still has plenty of fight left in him. Today, Mr. Frank sent out a fiery fundraising email slamming Tea Partiers on behalf of his colleague from Western New York, Louise Slaughter.

“These crazy tea party Republicans make logic disappear faster than Houdini. The worst part is that their crazy fat cat friends are literally throwing money at them to help them win so they can enact their cockamamie ideas,” Mr. Frank wrote.

The Congressman also noted “their ads are getting slimier and shadier.” Mr. Frank said he was motivated to fundraise for Ms. Slaughter because the Tea Partiers have “set their sights on her” and because she “has always been a fighter and a progressive who cares.”

Ms. Slaughter is running against Maggie Brooks, a Republican and County Executive of Monroe County who describes “fiscal-responsibility” as her top priority.

 Barney Frank Blasts Crazy Tea Party Republicans, With Cockamamie Ideas And Crazy Fat Cat Friends

These crazy tea party Republicans make logic disappear faster than Houdini. The worst part is that their crazy fat cat friends are literally throwing money at them to help them win so they can enact their cockamamie ideas. Their ads are getting slimier and shadier, and right now they have set their sights on my fellow member Louise Slaughter.

That’s why I have made it a point to join forces to help my friend Louise, who has always been a fighter and a progressive who cares. I have set a goal to help raise $10,000 in urgent resources before her July end of month budget deadline so that she can have the resources she needs to fight back.

Contribute now before tomorrow’s rapid response ad buy deadline.

Onward,

Barney”
