Between Scott York’s campaign mailer and an article from the Washington Post about the Chairman race, shots were fired at Charlie King, Delgaudio’s lawyer, for his support of Delgaudio and they aren’t pretty.
Delgaudio is circulating an online petition to oppose a Ryan run for House Speaker. The Loudoun supervisor says Ryan supports “the Gay Bill of Special Rights,” which he claims “tramples the Constitutional Rights of Americans who oppose the radical Homosexual Agenda, while granting ‘protected class’ status to sexual deviants …”(Source)
That’s right. Delgaudio wants to legally discriminate against people on a national level. He already opposed anti-discrimination on the local level:
At a Jan. 6 meeting, supervisors voted to expand Loudoun’s nondiscrimination policy to prohibit bias on the basis of sexual orientation in hiring by the county. Delgaudio fought the change in the meeting…
And was chastised for it
McGimsey said: “I think that the actions and words of Mr. Delgaudio prove why we needed to institute the policy that we did the other day. There’s clearly some people who need those kinds of policies in place.”
Donna Mateer was Delgaudio’s aide that brought to light his abuse of his Loudoun County office and to his staff. Here is her 8 page account of the abuse she had to endure while working for Delgaudio.(Apologies for the poor quality scan from the Blue Ridge Leader)
Subsequently Delgaudio was investigated by a Grand Jury and the FBI, Censured by the Board of Supervisors then had the nerve to oppose an ethics ordinance to prevent abuses from happening again. Is this the type of person you want representing Sterling?
Delgaudio has often said he’s against density packing in Sterling and in a recent “news”letter claimed his opponent, Koran Saines, is the real density packer. But that’s not quite the case when developers are giving Delgaudio campaign money in order to gain his political favor.
In typical two-faced fashion, Delgaudio voted to approve a density packed neighborhood called the Gatherings at Cascades in which 480 houses would be crammed onto 19 acres. That’s about 25 houses per acre. A typical Sterling Park home sits on about 1/4 acre lot.
Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling) is supporting the project despite his repeated objections to “density packing” in eastern Loudoun. Leinberger[the builder] has contributed $10,599 to Delgaudio’s election campaigns over the past five years. (Source)
Delgaudio has also taken money from other density packing developers
Delgaudio received money from a string of familiar names in the county, including Lansdowne Community Development ($5,000), Comstock Asset Management ($5,000), Van Metre Homes ($3,500), Centex Homes ($1,000), Toll Brothers ($500) and the Peterson Companies ($2,500).(source)
Delgaudio was “extremely against homosexuals” and he “spoke about them with extreme hatred.”
“He also made racial remarks about Asian people, making fun of the way they speak, mimicking them. He called them names, as well as he did with Hispanic people and black people,” Mateer notes.
Here’s a nice entry about Delgaudio in the Encyclopedia of American Loons. It contains an excellent summary, with sources, of the paranoid and delusional antics he’s commited over the years.
In another instance of Delgaudio making national news and embarrassing Loudoun County, Eugene sent out a letter to his hate group about Tampa’s annual Gasparilla Pirate Festival stating:
Word is that Radical Homosexuals have infiltrated as event organizers to promote homosexual events that are designed to prey upon unsuspecting college students by enticing them to join their “krewes” and help build parade floats in exchange for free alcohol. When the young men are sufficiently intoxicated, homosexuals dressed as pirates whisk them away to God knows where to take advantage of them sexually.
Delgaudio has a very vivid imagination when it comes to gay men.
Supervisor Eugene A. Delgaudio (R-Sterling), a longtime opponent of gay rights, is coming under increased criticism for recent comments viewed as homophobic and embarrassing to the community.
At a Board of Supervisors meeting Wednesday, five of his board counterparts used personal time to chastise the Sterling supervisor for anti-gay comments. One member, Andrea McGimsey (D-Potomac), apologized that Delgaudio made some of the remarks from the board dais.
“Loudoun County Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling) has never been shy about expressing his anti-gay opinions. Through his conservative nonprofit organization, Public Advocate of the United States, he has vehemently condemned any social or political development – from airport pat-down safety procedures, to anti-bullying legislation, to annual pirate festivals – that he deems part of a “homosexual agenda.”
As a result of those declarations, Delgaudio’s Falls Church-based organization was recently added to a list of designated hate groups compiled by theSouthern Poverty Law Center, an internationally recognized nonprofit civil rights organization.”
The Grand Jury that investigated Delgaudio issued a scathing special report about his actions(and lack of action serving his constituents). The Board of Supervisors ultimately censured Delgaudio due to his misconduct and he voted against an ethics ordinance prevent future misconduct. It should be no surprise that he supported another indicted local politician who lacked ethics.
Here are some highlights of the report:
