Frank's preemptive strike...

In an interview with CNBC, Representative Barney Frank says he wants to push for prosecution of the people who caused the country's financial meltdown.

The Massachusetts Democrat says he has no specific targets in mind, but says the most significant thing lawmakers can do is make past bad practices illegal.
On a separate note, Bill Clinton is slated to give a seminar on fidelity; Tim Geithner, Tom Daschel, and Charlie Rangel will give a talk on the importance of paying one’s taxes; and Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn will hold a punch social to discuss the dangers of playing with fireworks.

I'm pretty sure that prosecuting one's self is a conflict of interest to some extent.

Mr. Frank's audacity is mindboggling. The fact that the media lets him get away with it is less surprising.
