We’re going to re-visit a conversation with a former Congressman who has been considered a champion of the labor movement for more than three decades. Barney Frank represented the fourth congressional district in Massachusetts for 31 years until his retirement in 2012, and he was in the middle of the mix during battles over some of the most historic pieces of legislation in recent American history. Issues like Wall Street Reform and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell bear his unique and unquestionable imprint, and in an autobiography he published last spring, we get a glimpse behind the scenes in the capital during his influential tenure.
