The Democratic Party of Georgia has been engaged in internecine fighting since February.
On Monday, Chairman Berlon opened himself up to the latest salvo by saying he needed to address a story posted on a certain blog about the DPG Political Director. I won’t link to the original story for a variety of reasons, mainly though because there are only charges of illegal behavior, no convictions or proof so as far as I’m concerned the man is innocent and I’ll leave it at that.
Berlon sent out an email to members of the State Committee on Monday. There are a few points that are not immaterial and worth refuting from the email, I believe. You can read the email, get reaction and see just what the once-mighty DPG has devolved into here.
For one, no posts that I’ve read have suggested that the individual has been “convicted” of anything (a pretty important distinction for a lawyer to make, I’d say), all the information was obtained via public record not a mole, how did this go unnoticed until a “local blogger” (pejorative implied) discovered it, and don’t bother following Mike’s advice to contact him with any questions as he says (over the years he’s never responded to one of my emails and as I understand it that’s par for the course).
