Barney Frank Signs With WME

The retiring congressman is not looking to host a talk show.

He tells Variety’s Rachel Abrams, “I hope to write a book. It depends on how sentient I remain as I get
older. And give lectures and do media commentary
and teach some … I plan to essentially run my mouth for money.”

She writes that Frank plans to write a book about advocacy, and another about gay rights issues in the U.S.
Frank says he also hopes to do TV work, although no discussions have yet
begun due to conflict of interest issues.
