Within days of arriving in Congress in 1981, Barney Frank said, “I’ve been like a kid with my nose pressed against the candy store window. If I can stay here for 30 years, my life will be fulfilled.” Frank did stay for 30 years, enriching not just his life, but the lives of all those for whom he fought.
