WASHINGTON, D.C. — While pitcher Roger Clemens was testifying at a circus of a congressional hearing a few weeks ago, House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank was just down the hall, working away with a handful of other legislators at a hearing on how to modernize the Community Reinvestment Act.
