Barney Frank's student interrogator running for Congress

Politico's Ben Smith notes that Joel Pollak, a recent Harvard Law grad running for Congress against the (for all intents and purposes) unassailable Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), is trumpeting an endorsement from Alan Dershowitz and attracting some attention from J Street. Indeed, the Dershowitz endorsement -- officially announced on May 24 -- is all about the politics of Israel. But you may have heard of Pollak before. He was the "conservative student" who grilled Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) about his stewardship of economic policy in the run-up to the financial crisis.

Pollak has raised nearly $90,000, but has $6,068 on hand according to OpenSecrets. Schakowsky, who has never won less than 70% of the vote, has $458,529 on hand.
