A Florida attorney was caught on tape outlining his plan to vote illegally in Georgia’s runoff elections and encouraging fellow Republicans to do the same.

Attorney Bill Price was recorded on a since-deleted Facebook Live video describing his plan to commit voter fraud to the Bay County Republican Party members on Nov. 7, about a half hour after the presidential election was called for Joe Biden, reported WSB-TV.

“I’d love to tell you that there are legal avenues for success in the courts, but as a realist and as a lawyer myself, I know that that’s just not going to happen,” Price told the GOP gathering.

Price told the crowd that he was moving to his brother’s address in Hiram, Georgia, to register to vote in the Jan. 5, and he spells out his brother’s name and address as other Republicans take notes, and some can be heard murmuring the information as they write.

“We can truly register at that address?” asks one woman.

“Sure,” Price says, but suggests having mail sent there to show a move to the state.

“And can it be anywhere in the state of Georgia you can register?” another woman asks. “So if you’ve got cousins, dogs, cats that live somewhere else, it doesn’t need to be one particular county?”

“Yep,” Price says. “This is going to be a statewide election on Jan. 5. I’m going to be voting for Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.”

One woman asks about the registration deadline, which is Monday, and Price says he’s not sure but advises her how to check online.

“It can be done online or you can request your ballot at your new address in Georgia by mail,” Price says. “You just go to the secretary of state’s website for the state of Georgia and register to vote there.”

Price tells the Republican gathering that he’s planning to get a Georgia driver’s license and have mail sent to his brother’s house to vote in the runoff, and warns the crowd that the stakes are high.

“We have to win that election in Georgia, and so I’m moving to my brother’s house in Hiram, Georgia, and I’m registering to vote,” Price says, “and we are going to win that election in January. That’s what needs to be done. If you don’t want to do it, fine. Might as well move to Venezuela now. Get used to that lifestyle, because that’s what’s coming.”

Georgia’s deputy secretary of state Jordan Fuchs confirmed Wednesday that Price was under investigation for fraudulent voter registration, a felony charge.

“This isn’t California,” Fuchs said. “We actually investigate and seek to prosecute individuals who try vote here illegally. Our system is built to prevent this behavior— we will seek to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.”

Georgia officials have been warning for weeks that registering to vote in the state with no intention of staying there can be punishable with felony charge that can carry up to a 10-year prison term and $100,000 fine.

Price told WSB that his comments at the meeting were intended as a joke, and he insisted that he hadn’t actually gone through with the actions that he had described last month.

“I did not change my voter registration and I don’t have 2 million roommates,” Price said. “But if my humorous comments bring attention to the massive and widespread voter fraud in Georgia, I would submit to you that it’s a good thing.”

However, WSB confirmed that Price had, in fact, registered to vote Nov. 8 using his brother’s address and swearing to an affidavit that he was a Georgia resident and eligible to vote.

“We clearly know that he is not,” said Deidre Holden, Paulding County’s election supervisor.

Holden said her office was going to write Price and ask him to bring in his driver’s license to “cure” and complete his registration, and her office had been contacted by state elections investigators who flagged his registration address and shared the Facebook Live video with her.

“What kind of message is this sending out to our children and our grandchildren and our neighbors that if you don’t win an election, that you can just go out and steal one?” said Holden, who is also a Republican. “That’s absolutely unacceptable here in the State of Georgia.”

GOP Senator: Trump’s Not Going to be 2024 Republican Nominee

Avatar

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) urged his fellow Republicans to move past former President Donald Trump on Sunday, predicting that due to the damage Trump has done to the GOP, he likely won’t be the party’s presidential nominee in 2024.

Hours before Trump was set to deliver his first post-White House speech at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, Cassidy appeared on CNN’s State of the Union to discuss the current state of the Republican Party and Trump’s place in it.

The Louisiana lawmaker, who was one of seven GOP senators to vote to convict Trump during the ex-president’s second impeachment trial earlier this month, called on the GOP to make issues and policy front and center in the coming elections.

“We’ve got to win in two years, we’ve got to win in four years,” Cassidy told host Dana Bash. “If we do that, we’ll do that by speaking to those issues important to the American people, and there’s a lot of issues important to them right now, not by putting one person on a pedestal and making that one person our focal point.”

Bash, meanwhile, noted that Trump’s influence on the party is not diminishing, despite his impeachment for allegedly inciting an insurrectionist riot at the U.S. Capitol. Pointing out that Trump’s face was literally “embronzed” at CPAC and top Republicans are flying down to meet the former president, the CNN host asked how the GOP can move forward with Trump still in the spotlight.

“CPAC is not the entirety of the Republican Party,” he replied. “That’s number one. Number two, political organizations and campaigns are about winning. Over the last four years, we lost the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the presidency. That has not happened in a single four years under a president since Herbert Hoover. If we plan to win in 2022 and 2024, we have to listen to the voters.”

Asked whether he was personally faulting Trump for the GOP losing control of Congress, Cassidy demurred somewhat, insisting again that Republicans need to speak to policy solutions. At the same time, he did say that if they “idolize one person, we will lose.”

Noting that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell—who was highly critical of Trump’s role in the insurrection—has come out and said he will back Trump if he runs in 2024, Bash then pressed Cassidy on whether he feels Trump is fit to be president again.

“I don’t think—one, he’ll be 78 years old—but I don’t think he’ll be our nominee for the reasons I’ve said,” Cassidy responded. “Over the last four years, we’ve lost the House, the Senate, and the presidency. Political campaigns are about winning.”

“That’s a theoretical that I don’t think will come to pass,” he concluded. “I don’t mean to duck, but the truth is you could ask me [about] a lot of people, if they are fit. Point is, I don’t think he’ll be our nominee.”

New Republican group promises to have ‘Trump shaking in his boots’ over his future

Appearing on MSNBC early Sunday morning, a former member of Donald Trump’s administration teased the announcement of a newly formed group of Republicans and ex-Republicans whose goal is to make sure that the ex-president will never be a viable candidate for office again.

Speaking with hosts Kendis Gibson and Lindsey Reiser, former Homeland Security official Miles Taylor noted the current CPAC conference in Florida where the president is expected to get hero’s welcome from the far-right attendees and said it is important that traditional Republicans push back on Trump’s re-entry into the public square after losing re-election in November.

“I want to give you a number: 50 percent,” Taylor began. “Donald Trump can’t get to 50 percent. We just saw this in the most recent election, he cannot win elections. We’ve got to be able to, in the Republican Party, have someone who is a standard-bearer that can get us over 50 percent to win elections. He can’t, he lost in spectacular fashion in this election and that’s why I think it’s entirely inappropriate for us to continue to put him forward as the leader of this party. it’s a mistake that’s going the cause the GOP to lose elections in the future and it’s time to move on from Donald Trump.”

Pressed on his future plans to oppose Trump, Taylor first said, “There are a lot of people in the party ready to move beyond Donald Trump. In fact, most of us realize he is much better at golfing than governing which is really saying a lot if you know anything about Donald Trump’s golf game,” before adding, “Donald Trump lost, not because more Democrats came out. Donald Trump lost because his own voters defected from him.”

“I’m happy to share with you today a little bit of a tease,” he added. ” I can’t give you all the information, but we’re about to make an announcement in the very near future that’s going to make Donald Trump have the worst heartburn he’s had in the post-presidency. We’re going to be channeling this movement to challenge him to create an insurgency within and without the GOP to drive forward towards a better center-right political movement than Donald Trump can put together. It’s something he’s going to have to contend with.”

Pressed for more details he added, “You’re aware of the fact that we’ve been having conversations with very prominent people in the GOP and ex-Republicans about where we go beyond Trump, how do we move beyond Trump. You’re going to hear from us in the month of March about what’s coming next.”

“What’s coming next is going to make Donald Trump fear for his ability to continue to be a standard-bearer of this party,” he continued. “We are going to channel this movement, rally people together in the center, bring the Republican Party back from crazy to rational as best we can, and Trump should be shaking in his boots.”

At CPAC, Trump steps back into the conservative limelight after monthlong retreat

Former President Donald Trump will take the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Sunday afternoon in a position few would have imagined prior to November of 2020: Voted out of the White House, impeached (and acquitted) a second time, accused of fomenting a riot at the U.S. Capitol — yet still the major voice in the GOP, and perhaps the frontrunner for the party’s presidential nomination in 2024.

Trump’s own meteoric rise to the White House, which he accomplished in part by defeating the well-oiled Clinton political machine, was perhaps eclipsed only by his chaotic fall from power, which concluded amid violence at the Capitol and an unprecedented impeachment trial that took place after he had already left office. 

Still, after roughly a month of near-total silence from the former president — an uncharacteristic lull aided in part by his lifetime bans from multiple social media platforms — Trump nevertheless seems likely to remain a dominant force in the Republican Party he has so effectively reshaped in his own image. 

For one thing, repeated polls since the 2020 election have shown that Republicans are still solidly in favor of Trump, with consistent majorities of GOP voters stating their preference for the former president should he decide to run again for the party’s presidential nomination in 2024. 

Whether that support will hold — and whether it will translate into Republican victories in the 2022 midterms and through 2024 — will likely depend in large part on how both Trump and GOP leadership interact with each other over the next few years. The raucous, irreverent MAGA movement of which Trump is the leader has never meshed well with the relatively staid politics of the Grand Old Party.

Trump’s immense popularity among the GOP base during his presidency impelled many veteran establishment Republicans to grudgingly go along with him, if only in order to survive politically. With much of the media claiming Trump “incited” an uprising against the government on Jan. 6 — even as the riot appears to have been pre-planned — many of those same Republicans may be hoping to be able to extricate themselves from Trump now while appealing to GOP moderates who have accepted that media narrative.

A Republican break from Trump — or vice versa — could prove politically fatal to both, with Trump potentially taking his voting base to a doomed third-party option, the GOP foundering in national elections, and a mostly unified Democratic voting bloc claiming historic victories at the federal and state levels. 

Trump’s highly anticipated CPAC appearance, then, could be the beginning of his second chapter as a GOP standard-bearer — or it could be the beginning of the end, depending upon a complex set of political factors and decisions that play out over the next several years. 

The former president is scheduled to speak at 3:40 p.m. EST.
