He's taken no responsibility for the financial mess although he was on the finance committee.

Good luck, he has a large power base. However, if any year was the year to vote 'hot bottom' out, it would be this one.

Sean Bielat is the first strong challenger to Barney Frank since the 1980s. His experience and accomplishments have shaped his views:

—As a businessman, Sean believes in focusing on economic growth and fiscal responsibility

—As a Marine, he believes in peace through strength

—As an American, he believes in a return to Constitutional values and citizen-legislators

Sean’s career highlights include—

Major, U.S Marine Corps Reserve
Independent Consultant. Helped client companies build market strategies
Program Manager, iRobot Corporation. Led $100 million, 100 person business line providing life-saving defense robots used to destroy roadside bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan
Chairman, NATO Industrial Armaments Group. Led an international team studying the potential for use of advanced reconnaissance technology in urban warfare
Management Consultant, Mckinsey & Company
Lieutenant, U.S. Marine Corps (active duty)
Sean and his wife are residents of Brookline, MA and recently had their first child, Theo. They are members of St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church in Brookline. Sean currently works as an independent consultant and serves as an officer in the Marine Corps Reserve.

Sean worked his way through college and graduate school, aided by scholarships and the GI Bill. He now holds a Master in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, a Bachelor of Arts from Georgetown University, and a Master of Business Administration from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus, the International Institute for Security Studies, and the Council on Emerging National Security Affairs.

we voted for Sean

I've been voting against Frank for years

"A government that does not trust it's law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms is itself unworthy of trust" James Madison

"The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so." Ronald Regan

The largest fishing port in the US will never vote for anyone but Frank.

Nobody else has paid their dues on the South Shore to oust Frank.

Don't worry, there will be shuttle busses to take them to the polls.

Doesn't matter, anyways. Thanks to gerrymandering in MA, Frank should be able to keep his seat for as long as he wants.

Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Conservatism is about empowering people to catch up, to give them tools at their disposal that make it possible for them to access all the hope, all the promise, all the opportunity that America offers. - Marco Rubio

Last weeks primary results (Frank getting 80% of the dem vote) is just more evidence to me that voters in Ma. are either brain dead or part of the corrupt establishment !

A self titled comm against Frank? Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

So how come the republican candidate hasn't gone to the working waterfront festival to speak?
