Can’t sleep at night when his stack of Hamiltons runs low.

Eugene Delgaudio is worried:

Right now, the Supreme Court of the United States is holding the future of morality and marriage in their hands. I am very worried about the number of radical pro-homosexual cases the Court is currently considering.

…Despite overwhelming support and popularity, a federal court of appeals ruled that a legal definition of marriage as one man and one woman is somehow unconstitutional. And now the ruling is being appealed to the Supreme Court. Public Advocate has gathered hundreds of thousands of signatures to submit along with an amicus (Friend of the Court) brief in defense of Prop 8 once the Court starts proceedings.

But in just the past few weeks, I have filed two additional amicus briefs to assist in pro-Family battles. On August 2nd, Public Advocate submitted a brief asking the Courts to hold President Obama accountable for his refusal to enforce the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). It’s been more than a year since he declared that he would change the nation’s laws by presidential decree, yet he has faced no punishment for this illegal action. Public Advocate has also filled a brief opposing the activist ruling of Massachusetts’s First Circuit Court of Appeals. The First Court has tried to rule that DOMA is unconstitutional.

My friend, the fate of our nation is truly hanging in the balance right now. But I am confident that the amicus briefs Public Advocate has submitted will make a difference. When the Boy Scouts were forced to defend their moral leadership policy, Public Advocate’s amicus brief played a key role in their victory.

Of course, you know what eases his mind, don’t you?

P.S. Please prayerfully consider chipping in with a donation of $10 or more to help Public Advocate fight for traditional values.

I usually read the Delgaudio exploits on JoeMyGod, but you got to me first. I love reading the adventures and the pleading for cash each time.

My personal favorite was when Joe Delgaudo stumbled upon the gay warehouse, filled with hunky hirsute men filling trucks with the latest LGBT propaganda. They recognized Delgaudio and started to advance on him but luckily he got away.

It was almost as good a Tin Tin!

How the hell does this guy get away with his shit? He seems to have himself a personal charity…which gives money only to him. How the hell is this shit legal?

Not to mention, seriously, does he lie awake at night making up this crazy bullshit?

The fate of our country seems to be always hanging in the balance, doesn’t it?

Aren’t amicus briefs public record? I wonder if he has actually filed anything.

“Aren’t amicus briefs public record? I wonder if he has actually filed anything.”

I wonder too. Can someone verify this?

If he did not, would his email qualify as fraud?

Why do you post his crap? You know that all he has to say regarding anything related to gay people is going to be negative? What’s the point?

Joseph, many of us find it humourous when someone is seemingly terrified over something warm and cuddly.

I’m of two minds about Delgaudio. On the one hand, he takes money that might otherwise go to effective homophobic organizations. On the other, I imagine that the people he targets tend to be poor, elderly, and extremely naive. I’ve got a picture in my mind of an elderly baptist lady who’s eating catfood in her unheated home because she gave all her money to Public Advocate.

“If he did not [file amicus briefs], would his email qualify as fraud?”
Since he’s using it as a means of obtaining donations, there seems to be a very good chance it would so qualify.

@ Ed, I agree with your first reason. On your second reason, I’m both old and poor. I make choices between healthy food and political donations myself, and my only concern over old people who consume cat food so they can support haters is whether they’re driving up the cost of cat food. As for Delgaudio, his rich and twisted fantasies about assault threats from guys in warehouses is almost worth 10 bucks, except there’s a porn pic named “Warehouse” with bodies worth looking at. I haven’t seen that one yet but I’ve read the reviews, and it would seem a better investment than having to replace the mental image of Delgaudio with something sexy while paying for his copycat fantasy.

Have you noticed how worried Delgaudio is? I mean, he’s always worried.

I just wonder why he never seems to worry about something that’s actually a problem.

Yes, DelGaudio takes money that might otherwise go to effective homophobic organizations. Still, he stirs the flames of homophobia among those who take his emails seriously (and not for their entertainment value) and they go out and vote.

And yes, DelGaudio is always worried … about where his next yacht payment is going to come from.

Oh Delgaudio, perpetually worried the nation is always in the balance right now. Frankly Eugene, if it’s imbalance you’re after, I think you’ve got it.

Actually filing amicus briefs (a nice brand name there, if someone’s interested) costs money. This would threaten the million-dollar shoestring on which Eugene operates, so I doubt that he really filed anything. Further, amicus briefs must be even-handed to be considered useful; they must recognize opposing points and argue against them. Eugene’s “me too” and a thousand signatures won’t work.

Like the letters sent by government agencies threatening to shut Eugene up, these briefs are unlikely ever to be seen in public. Because they are imaginary.

Surprisingly, the Public Advocate did file an amicus brief on the Proposition 8 appeal, jointly with five other organizations. Here it is:
