Email of the Day

Jim Burroway

July 25th, 2012

This email comes from a mysterious “Barry Caron, Attorney at Law,” whose practice is utterly invisible to Google.

The mysterious "Barry Caron"

** CONFIDENTIAL ** To Public Advocate supporters only:

Government agencies threaten legal action against Public Advocate of the U.S. over correspondence Mr. Delgaudio has sent to you. Mr. Delgaudio has told me that he cannot give up communication to you, that every Public Advocate member is vital to his efforts in Congress. That’s why he has hired me to evaluate the legal threat posed by these agencies and the bureaucrats that run them.

I am convinced Mr. Delgaudio has done nothing wrong. Unfortunately, right and wrong do not always matter to government bureaucrats.  That’s why I have informed Mr. Delgaudio that if he chooses to stand up to these threats, the consequences could be severe. The legal costs alone could be enormous. Public Advocate could even be forced to close its doors before a court rules in its favor (which I think is very likely). Unless members like you are 100% committed to supporting Public Advocate this year, I believe that Eugene Delgaudio has no choice but to shut down Public Advocate’s battle to stop the Homosexual Lobby.

If, on the other hand, every Public Advocate member is truly committed to support Mr. Delgaudio’s efforts, I believe the battle can be won. Mr. Delgaudio needs to hear back from you today so he can decide what to do next.  Please read his email here and let him know.

The link goes to a web page which begins:

Needs to make the boat payment.

In the past, the radical homosexuals have attempted to kill me, even threatening and stalking my family.  However, all that did was make me more determined than ever to fight them. And with your help, I did. Together, you and I have really rocked the Homosexual Lobby.  We’ve held off so much of their agenda for so many years.  You see your support is really the most important part of my efforts.

But now they want to take you out of the fight. I’ve received letters from three different government agencies ordering me to stop sending mail to members like you. One letter from a Post Office bureaucrat actually declared my correspondence with Public Advocate members to be obscene!

And if they can find a judge who agrees with them, the legal consequences could be severe.  Even if we win, the legal fees could destroy your Public Advocate. That’s why I’m desperate for you to send a contribution of $50 or even $75 today.  I need your help right away, so I ask you to send whatever you can afford today. …

Boat payments must be due.

Barry Caron is a self described extreme conservative who once ran for a seat in the 38th Congrssional District in Virginia and lost to a liberal Democrat. (Must be northern Virginia)

He has a minimal web trail which suggests cleansing or using aliases.

Not that Barry Caron. This one’s an attorney. Took about 2 minutes to come up with him. But details are mainly lacking. I suspect the first commenter has him down.

I’ve worked with Logistics Engineers. They aren’t even _close_ to being attorneys.


July 25th, 2012

I finally took a look at Mr. Delgaudio’s web site ( (not linking to it)). I am reminded of TimeCube.


July 25th, 2012

We will never see those threatening letters.


July 25th, 2012

Interestingly, the web firm that designs both the PublicAdvocate and the JoinEugene web sites also designs the web site for the Islamophobic organization AIDF. Does Eugene seem nervous to you?

I thought it was legal to send pornography through the mail except to certain states, such as Virginia and Utah. Unless he’s sending some pretty unusual premiums to contributors I can’t see what he would be in trouble for.

Of course this is Delgaudio we’re talking about, so logic and sanity don’t apply.


July 25th, 2012

The ABA has no attorney named Barry Caron nor does the Virginia State Bar. He most likely is impersonating an attorney which is another crime.

Here’s the same email, forwarded from Delgaudio back in 2010, opening with “I’m concerned that you might have missed the emails from my attorney Barry Caron.”

Public Advocate’s attorney of record and registered agent is a Vienna attorney named William J. Olson. I guess he didn’t want his name used.

What government agencies? He is being sued by a private person for copyright infringement. Or at least threatened so.


July 25th, 2012

Yes, yes, yes, it’s probably nothing but another anxious appeal for money.

But wouldn’t it be something if the Postal Service or the US Attorney’s Office or a grand jury really was investigating Eugene for fraud?

I so hope it’s true!

David Weintraub

July 25th, 2012

The email and the page it links to are vaguely worded enough that they can be reused (see comment above about it appearing in 2010), but the use of them now is probably supposed to evoke the threatened lawsuit and cease and desist letter from SPLC.

Google ads has also been contacted (including by one of our local Loudoun newspapers) with regard to the violation of their ad content policy, so he may have received notice from Google that his ads have been suspended. There may be other investigations yet to be reported.

“You see your support is really the most important part of my efforts.” – Eugene Delgaudio

I’d $ay he allowed a little bit of unintended hone$ty to $lip through in hi$ late$t $olicitation.


July 25th, 2012

The attorney’s writing style is suspiciously similar to that of Delguadio. Even if the attorney is real and is representing D., my bet is that Eugene wrote the draft for him.

Why is this a problem??????? Really the greedy ripping off the stupid greedy? Good thing they are not sending money to real anti-gay groups. Republicans lie, it’s what they do best nothing new, and it won’t change anytime soon. Since they are ripping off fellow Republicans chances are in time someone will go to jail. It is just as possible that the fraudster is in a different country. The more money they defraud the less will be spent to discriminate.

David Weintraub

July 26th, 2012

The fraudster is not in a different country. He is a sitting county supervisor in my community. His propensity for fraud and corruption is unlikely to be limited to his direct mail business. Stay tuned.


July 28th, 2012

Considering the language matches Delgaudio’s letters, I suspect he is the actual author. Does anyone else wonder if his bosses realize they’ve employed a delusional whack job?

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.

Straight From The Source: What the “Dutch Study” Really Says About Gay Couples

Anti-gay activists often cite the “Dutch Study” to claim that gay unions last only about 1½ years and that the these men have an average of eight additional partners per year outside of their steady relationship. In this report, we will take you step by step into the study to see whether the claims are true.

The FRC’s Briefs Are Showing

Daniel Fetty Doesn’t Count
