Getting beaten for U.S. Senate was good for Blanche Lincoln's bank account. She's got her own lobbying business now and the client list grows. Comcast, Valero, Experia, Interstate Natural Gas Association and others now have a very high-powered addition — Monsanto.

Huffington Post reports.

Monsanto is a fit for the former Senate Agriculture Committee chair.

The seed giant's influence on Capitol Hill has been in the news quite a bit in the past year, thanks to the so-called Monsanto Protection Act, a provision slipped into a spending bill last March that protects companies that sell genetically modified seeds from lawsuits. While the company says it supports the measure, Monsanto has objected to the nickname opponents have given the bill, arguing that plenty of other agribusiness companies support it, too. Despite efforts to revive the act as part of a later spending bill, it was pulled from recent budget negotiations.
