Ex-Mississippi Senator Has Appendix Removed, Recovering


JACKSON, Miss. — Former Senator Trent Lott is doing well tonight after having his appendix removed at a Jackson hospital.  He was taken there after it ruptured.  A spokesperson for Baptist Medical Center says Lott is in fair condition.

The 71-year old Republican use to be the Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate; but stepped down in 2002 after making remarks at a birthday party for then Senator Strom Thurmond that seemed to support segregation.  He retired five years later.

Lott currently works as a lawyer and lobbyist.  He has a home and office in the Jackson area.
