Barney Frank To Campaign Contributors: I Thought About Texting, Sexting, Lip-Synching 'Danke Schoen'

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) wrote in a thank you letter to his campaign contributors that he was thinking of new ways to thank them, including "texting and sexting."

"I thought about lip-synching Eddie Fisher's version of 'Danke Schoen' on YouTube. Other possibilities suggested themselves -- some combination of friending, tweeting, texting and sexting," wrote Frank in the note obtained by Politico Influence.

The outspoken Massachusetts Democrat does not tweet. "I'm not at all interested in where my colleagues had lunch," he once quipped. He does have a Facebook page.

Frank raised just over $760,000 in the third quarter, having around $389,000 in cash on hand. Though his district is considered safe, he appeared vulnerable at one point during the 2010 election, lending his campaign $200,000. He won his seat by 11 points.

Frank, who paid back $100,000 in loans the third quarter to be debt-free, thanked his supporters for fending off "last year's right-wing onslaught."
