On June 13th, 2010, during his debate with Rachel Brown in Brookline, MA, Barney Frank claimed that he had "voted against the repeal of Glass-Steagall". Well, not surprisingly, Barney Frank was lying ― not only did he whole-heartedly support the repeal of Glass-Steagall in 1999, but he remains the major obstacle to its re-introduction today.
