Former majority leader lobbying for online gambling opponents

Former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-Miss.), former Sen. John Breaux (D-La.) and a host of other former congressional staffers will lobby for a group pushing a ban on Internet gambling.

The Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling — backed by GOP donor and casino owner Sheldon Adelson — hired the lobbying firm Squire Patton Boggs, according to disclosures filed Tuesday.
