Chet Lott, a registered lobbyist, secured the rights to the domain name on Oct. 16 — six weeks before his father announced his retirement from the upper chamber.
Two days after Sen. Lott’s stunning announcement, Breaux told his colleagues at Patton Boggs that he was leaving the firm to start a lobbying firm with his son, John Jr.
The Lott and Breaux developments triggered widespread speculation that Breaux, Lott and their sons would form what would likely become a lobbying force in the nation’s capital.
Breaux told the New Orleans Times-Picayune on Nov. 29 that he is very interested in working with Lott: “I would love to have him come on board. Hopefully, I will be one of the first he calls after he officially steps down.”
