Trent Lott resigns

Reported by Chrish - December 19, 2007 -

It's official. FOXNews.com is reporting that Trent Lott (R-MS) has left his Senate seat after 19 years, days before new ethics rules regarding the "revolving door" would have made him wait two years rather than one before he can begin lobbying his former colleagues and cronies. Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour will appoint a replacement to the seat until a special election is held next year.

Note: Amended 12/19 10am, after coffee, to reflect temporary nature of appointment.
