Trent Lott to Resign Before the End of the Year

Faiz Shakir: The senator has "other opportunities" he plans to pursue, the official said, without elaborating.

Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS) is reportedly informing close allies that he plans to resign his Senate seat before the end of the year. NBC reports, "It's possible a formal announcement of his plans could take place as early as today." Politico adds, "If he resigns, Lott would become the sixth Republican senator to announce they were stepping down this election cycle."

UPDATE: Lott was forced from his Senate Majority Leader seat in disgrace in late 2002 after hailing the segregationist platform of former Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-SC). Speaking at a 100th birthday party celebration for Thurmond, Lott said, "I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years, either." He regained a leadership post after the 2006 midterm elections.

PBA tell me the number one reason you like being liberal.



Looks like Lott is about to follow the lobbying money and bails out of the Senate.


PBA tell me the number one reason you like being liberal. READ MY BOOK! ITS ONLY $19.95
To Skymaster, the number one reason i feel to be considered a Liberal, is that you try to see the big picture overall. I find a lot of people who say they are conservative a lot of agression and hate toward people who happen to be a little different. The indifference is not limited to way of thinking, but toward a persons skin color.

As an African=American who fought in the Viet Nam war, I was very offended when he APPEARED to endorse the segregation platform that Strom Thurmond ran on when ran for president. Senator Lott created this negativism on his on and not from what someone else said about him.

The republicans have left the party of Lincoln long ago. Remember, republicans are against civil rights and have always hated them. The republicans hated JFK. I remember in 1963 the republicans clapping their hands when our teacher informed us that JFK had been shot.

Do you feel the same way about Bill Clinton who`s mentor was a segregationalist or Al Gore who`s father was one too.What about Grand Klegal Robert Bird who was a member of the klan(and probably still is).As for Trent Lott he was a weak and pathetic leader who should have been voted out years ago.I say good riddance to spineless men like him.

Trent Lott to Resign Before the End of the Year.
excelman,
The story making the rounds is that they're doing this so that they can go directly to work as lobbyists. There's a reform that kicks in next year that would put a one (or is it two?) year moratorium on their joining the lobbyists.

Trent Lott is not forced to Resign !! He is doing it on his own. Trent knows, he will not be re-elected. He screwed Mississippi durning Katrina time.
Trent Lott could serve in the senate till he dies if he wanted to. He isn't independently wealthy like alot of the lifetime service dems so he's going to go get a real job.
As far as the Strom Thurman deal, all he was trying to do was make a 90 something old man feel good. If ou read any more into the comment than that you are a crack pot.
