It's Good Being a Former Senator

The road to riches is paved with public service:(sub required)
Less than four months after he left office, former Sen. Trent Lott (R-Miss.) has already scored a major payday downtown. The firm he founded with former Sen. John Breaux (D-La.) earned at least $945,000 during its first quarter in business, according to House filings.
Nice post Senatorial gig. Via David Freddoso.

And what will be Lott's and Breaux's first job? To help push through the Delta-Northwest merger. Atlanta Journal Constitution:
Among those lined up are two of the best known former lawmakers in the lobbying world — Trent Lott of Mississippi, who until recently was the second highest-ranking Republican senator, and his new lobbying partner, former Democratic Sen. John Breaux of Louisiana.
That might bring in a dollar or two for the dynamic lobbying duo.
