Lott's lot

By Fogg

Well whaddaya know - Trent Lott is going to resign from Congress today, cheap wig and all -- or so the news is being told. Is it because, as he says, he wants to spend more time with the family or is he scurrying down the dock lines like a bilge rat before he's outed or indicted? Or is it just so that he can escape new and improved ethics laws that would require him to wait two years before getting on the Washington lobbyist gravy train? Maybe it's all of the above, but it's definitely good riddance.

His resignation allows him to bypass the new law requiring a two year wait (goes into effect at the end of this year) so he can serve himself as a lobbyist. Four weeks is worth $$$ millions. This is what Republican Reprehensibles always do best.

That seems to be the consensus on why he's leaving so suddenly.

Everything boils down to money, but as I said, he may just want to be out of town when he's finally outed.

Another strong possibility Fogg.

Update: Lott's brother-in-law and nephew were indicted yesterday on charges of bribing a judge.
