Rigging elections has consequences: Georgia Governor-elect Brian Kemp hires the guy who tried (and failed) to kill the ACA and got caught misusing taxpayer funds on private jets. Tom Price is on Brian Kemp's transition team to advise on healthcare.

[Above: From 2017, Tom Price lies to a cancer patient that his plans do not include cutting off his Medicaid expansion. Republicans are still engaged in a lawsuit to stop guaranteed pre-existing condition coverage as defined by the ACA.]

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, saying "My Administration will be known as incredibly competent, obviously diverse, and clearly committed to doing the right thing – even when no one is looking. We will transition effectively, govern honestly, and always put hardworking Georgians first."

Then he put Tom Price on the transition committee.
