Bill Sammon, the Washington managing editor for Fox News Channel, claimed the donations from Fannie and Freddie influenced his support of their lending programs, and said that Frank did not play a strong enough role in reforming the institutions in the years leading up to the economic crisis of 2008.In response to criticism, Frank said, "In 2004, it was Bush who started to push Fannie and Freddie into subprime mortgages, because they were boasting about how they were expanding homeownership for low-income people.
Frank focused on Heckler's initial support for President Ronald Reagan's tax cuts, and won with 60% of the vote. Public opinion polling showed him facing his first credible challenge since defeating Heckler in 1982. On November 28, 2011, Frank announced at a news conference that he would not seek re-election in 2012. That year he hired Steve Gobie, a male prostitute, for sex, and they became "more friends than sexual partners." The Committee found no evidence that Frank had known of or been involved in the alleged illegal activity and dismissed all Gobie's more scandalous claims; they recommended a reprimand for Frank using his congressional office to fix 33 of Gobie's parking tickets and for misstatements of fact in a memorandum relating to Gobie's criminal probation record.In an op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal, Lawrence B.Lindsey, a former economic adviser to President George W. Frank also said that the Republican-led Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act of 1999, which repealed part of the Glass–Steagall Act of 1933 and removed the wall between commercial and investment banks, contributed to the financial meltdown.The bill, which had the support of Boston’s Police Commissioner, never came up for a vote.Later, when Frank was running for Congress, opponents erroneously portrayed him as having attempted to permit red-light districts in all Bay State communities.
The 2005 bill included Frank objectives, which were to impose tighter regulation of Fannie and Freddie and new funds for rental housing.
