Politico: Barney Frank supports protesters, raises Wall St. cash.

Rep. Barney Frank might sympathize with the Occupy Wall Street protesters, but he’s still got friends in the financial world.

The Massachusetts Democrat is heading to New York hoping to raise tens of thousands of dollars Thursday at a fundraiser at the home of Charles Myers, a senior investment banking advisor at Evercore Partners. Myers is one of several Wall Street execs listed on the invite soliciting up to $2,500 from attendees for Frank’s reelection committee, according to a copy obtained by POLITICO.

This mirrors what we see from The Messiah, too. For, as Bryan Preston notes, Obama Has Raised More from Wall Street than All the GOP Contenders, Combined. And he's in support of the OWSers. One wonders just how bright many of these OWSers really are considering that half of them think the bank bailouts were necessary, and/or that Obama and his fellow Democrats really share their values.
