Crooks And Liars reports:
Grifters gotta grift. Tom Price donated the maximum from his leftover campaign funds to the Kemp for Governor campaign, and now he gets a spot on the transition team to “help” with healthcare policy. This is the guy who was fired by Trump because word of his love for private jet travel leaked out. Kemp announced his transition team in a tweet.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:
Kemp said Price, an orthopedic surgeon and former U.S. House member, will help him hone healthcare policy that includes a staunch opposition to expanding Medicaid but a promise to seek federal waivers to help stabilize insurance premiums.
Price and other members of Kemp’s “Georgians First” team will spend the next two months further developing policy initiatives, hashing out his initial budget proposal and proposing appointments to a powerful posts and boards.
After rigging an election in his favor, Brian Kemp immediately hires insider-trading swamp creature Tom Price to his transition team. The brazenness of the GOP is hard to fathom sometimes. There’s no shame in their game when it comes to being unethical.

Tom Price was fired at the US HHS Secretary because he flew on private jets at taxpayer expense. What about that is okay to a new Republican governor? https://t.co/Ysb3NAyNsm
