Dems’ ex-chief faces new criminal complaint | www.myajc.com

Legal problems keep piling on the former leader of Georgia’s Democratic Party.

A criminal complaint filed Thursday with the Walton County Sheriff’s Office accuses Mike Berlon, who resigned his chairmanship June 10, of swindling businessman James Quick out of $144,000 — money Berlon was supposed to use in establishing a trust fund on Quick’s behalf.

Berlon told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday that his contract with Quick, the owner of Quick Pour Foundations, gives him 30 days to refund the money, and that it would be returned next week.

“It will be resolved in the next three to four days,” Berlon said.

Berlon, a Grayson attorney who also owns an investment company, resigned from his political post after the AJC reported on a string of legal woes accusing him of neglecting and defrauding clients.
