And, truth is, Taylor is likely to have his powers limited by Sen. Eric Johnson, R-Savannah, and the new GOP majority when the session begins in January.
But the discussion hasn't ended there. What better way to give Taylor a spoonful of comeuppance than by evicting him from his office under the Gold Dome?
The GOP has the power to do it, and rumors that Taylor would be relocated to the Legislative Office Building have circulated since Republicans took control of the Senate after the November elections. Even staffers in Taylor's office don't know whether they'll walk into work some Monday in January to find their belongings on Mitchell Street.
But at least one high-ranking Republican says such scenarios are "fanciful thinking" by revenge-minded senators or just a tongue-in-cheek joke that's taken on a life of its own. Whatever the case, it certainly shows the level of anxiety at the Capitol regarding the power shift.
Soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Thomas Price, R-Roswell, says he's heard the talk, but he's unaware of any plans to move the lieutenant governor. "I think I'd probably hear about it."
Price says he spoke recently with Taylor about the transition to Republican leadership, and Price says he's committed to changes that will "remain respectful of the office."
Evidently, that means Ryder trucks won't be necessary.
Sooooo....just curious how much did the city give Arthur Blank? Or how much is it…
