Heavens, no! It’s because he wants to make sure he can take advantage of that sweet, sweet Wingnut Welfare.
WASHINGTON (CNN) — Sen. Trent Lott, R-Mississippi, intends to resign by the end of the year and join the private sector, sources tell CNN.
Lott is expected to make the announcement Monday in Pascagoula, Mississippi.
A senior Republican source close to Lott said one reason for the decision is the new lobbying restrictions on former lawmakers.
A law kicks in on January 1 that forbids lawmakers from lobbying for two years after leaving office. Those who leave by the end of 2007 are covered by the previous law, which demands a wait of only one year.
Lott, the Republican whip, was elected last year to a fourth term in the Senate. His term lasts until 2012.
