Break out the Champagne!
Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, a 16-term Democrat, will announce Monday he does not intend to seek re-election in 2012, according to a statement from Frank’s office.
Good riddance, don’t let the door hit you on the way out Congressman.

Update: Matt Mackowiak tweets:
With Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) retiring, next in line on the Dem side of the House Financial Services Committee is Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA).
Ouch, would it be wrong of me to say I hope Rep. Frank reconsiders?
