Barney Frank is a Big Shmegege


On “The G. Gordon Liddy Show” yesterday I called House Financial Services Committee chairman Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts) a “big shmegege” for supporting the Community Reinvestment Act, which helped to lay the foundation for our current economic problems.

We discussed the crisis on Wall Street and how liberal community activist groups such as ACORN, the Greenlining Institute, and the National Council of La Raza contributed to the market meltdown. We also discussed my article, “Financial Affirmative Action,” that was published in the American Spectator.

An audio file (MP3) of the interview is available here.
