Top Barney Frank aide heading to Treasury
By Zach Goldfarb
The top spokesman for Barney Frank, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, is leaving Congress to help run public affairs for Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.
Steven Adamske, who has served as Frank's communications director through the tumult of the 2008 financial crisis and the effort to overhaul financial regulation, will replace Andrew Williams, deputy assistant secretary for public affairs.
Williams, who came to Washington, along with Geithner, from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, will leave Treasury next month.

Williams is returning to New York to take time off and figure out what's next.
