Barney Frank to Haul TARP Recipients to Washington for Major Sassing


Pandit! Lewis! Dimon! Clear your calendars. Representative Barney Frank plans to call the heads of major bailed-out banks to testify before his committee next week to see how, exactly, they’ve been using their TARP funds. Or that’s what his aides say the meeting is for, anyway. We kind of suspect it’s just an excuse for Feisty Frank to razz Ken Lewis about his boytoy John Thain, and to get up in Vikram Pandit’s business about the private-jet fiasco(s). And this time, he has a week to think up the jokes. We can’t wait. [HuffPo]
