Empty Lott

Trent Lott announced his intent to resign at the end of the year. He claims that he is not leaving for any reason aside from he wants to spend more time with his family. That's nice. He also said in his press conference that he hoped there would be more opportunities in his future and that there are opportunities he hopes he'll be able to consider. He also claims that the new law regarding employment by lobbyists had no bearing on his decision.


Excuse me.

I predict that by this time in '09 Trent will have himslef a cushy job with Petroleum company or lobby. I'll bet you 5 bucks.

Rent Boy on Sex With Outgoing Republican Senator Trent Lott: No Comment

by PageOneQ

"Once upon a time," writes Big Head DC, "there was a twentysomething boy-next-door type with reddish blond hair and a brillantly white smile."

This boy-next-door is male escort Benjamin Nicholas, whose blog 15 Minutes helped him make some connections in business and politics.

One of these connections is rumored to be Senator Trent Lott, Republican Minority Whip and former Senate Majority Leader, rumored to have planned a resignation by the end of this year to avoid being scandalized by Hustler publisher Larry Flynt. Flynt had, back in June, offered cash rewards for substantiated accounts of sexual liaisons with elected officials.

HUSTLER Magazine has received numerous inquiries regarding the involvement of Larry Flynt
and HUSTLER in the resignation of Trent Lott. Senator Lott has been the target of an ongoing HUSTLER investigation for some time now, due to confidential information that we have received.

Catherine: I wish it were true but here is something from the Huffington post:


A San Antonio-based gay male escort categorically denied Monday that outgoing GOP Sen. Trent Lott had ever procured his services, putting to bed one of the more stunning rumors to emerge following Lott's announcement earlier in the day that he was leaving Congress.

The charge was first published by the Washington DC blog Big Head DC, which claimed to have emails where the escort, Benjamin Nicholas, allegedly playing coy, declined to go on the record because "Trent is going through his fair share of scrutiny right now and I don't want to add to it."

But in an email message, Nicholas himself said the item was false.

"There's nothing to be said, as Lott and I have no connection whatsoever," Nicholas wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. "How these 'quotes' have been fabricated are beyond me. The Senator is someone I have had no personal dealings with, ever."

In a subsequent posting on his own Web site, Nicholas wrote, "I have not, nor have I ever seen or had contact with Senator Trent Lott. It's as simple as that. It never happened."

Big Head DC's founder, Rob Capriccioso, is no stranger to allegations of sloppy sleuthing.

Earlier this month, Radar Magazine dropped Capriccioso as a freelancer after he reported that veteran newsman Sam Donaldson's phone number was in the records of infamous DC Madam Deborah Jean Palfrey.

What Capriccioso failed to note, Radar wrote in an online post, was that Palfrey insisted that the single telephone call to Donaldson had nothing to do with prostitution, and was simply a wrong number.

Capriccioso defended the Lott piece, telling The Huffington Post "Big Head DC stands by our quotes and item 100 per cent," but he declined to share any of the emails Nicholas allegedly sent to the blog.

The item, peppered with links to YouTube videos of Nicholas flexing for the camera, quickly made the rounds of email inboxes inside the Beltway and beyond. It was even picked up by the wildly popular celebrity gossip site PerezHilton.com.

"The boy happens to be real, and his "stage name" is Benjamin Nicholas. One of the politicos Big Head DC has learned he's alleged to have been involved with is the married Sen. Trent Lott," read the original post on Big Head DC.

Nicholas later said the quotes attributed to him in the Big Head DC item were "falsely pieced-together" to "sensationalize a completely fabricated scoop."

Don't feel bad, Catherine. I wanted it to be true too.

HE HAS to have some skeleton in a closet or blue barrel somewhere!!

It's OK Catherine. He's actually a racist scumbag. This has come out repeatedly but the good people of Mississippi don't seem to care.

That is actually a subject I've been meaning to look into. Racism seems to be more open but somehow more tolerated in the south on both side of the divide. In the north it is more subtle and most people seem to think they are racist whn in fact they often do things that are inherently bigoted but that's a whole other post. Hell, that's a book!

I meant to say "most people seem to think they are NOT racist when in fact"
