Earlier this year, Eugene Delgaudio stole Brian Edwards and Tom Privitere’s engagement photo, altered it, and used it in mailers to target two legislators in Colorado. Last week, the Southern Poverty Law Center filed suit on behalf of Edwards, Privitere and their photographer in Federal Court charging Delgaudio with misappropriating their likeness without permission and copyright infringement. That same day, the Washington Post revealed allegations that Delgaudio, Loudoun County, Virginia Supervisor, used county employees to perform work for his non-county related anti-gay political activities. He fired one for being “not political enough” and two others resigned. Delgaudio is feeling the heat:

Speaking of back-door tactics…

…You see, the SPLC and their allies in the Radical Homosexual Lobby are bankrolled to the tune of tens of millions of dollars by the Hollywood elite. And they know that Public Advocate doesn’t have the financial resources to go toe-to-toe with them in court. Since just fighting a legal battle — win or lose — will cost Public Advocate hundreds of thousands of dollars in court costs and legal fees, the Homosexual Lobby believes they’ve finally found the back-door tactic to shut Public Advocate down!

..Jim, as you know, Public Advocate is currently engaged in fierce battles against the Radical Homosexual Lobby on multiple fronts. And these fights aren’t cheap. That’s why I’m counting on pro-family folks like you to stand side-by-side with me in this fight.  So can I count on you to chip in $50, $25 – or even $10 – to help Public Advocate prepare for this looming legal battle?

Earlier this year, BTB’s Rob Tisinai reviewed Delgaudio’s IRS990 forms and found that out of a total of $1,276,232 raised in donations, Delgaudio paid himself $171,606 in “management fees” and other expenses. He also spent $849,691 for postage, printing, and computer and list maintenance to support his fundraising activities. Not one dime was spent for lobbying in 2009. But if there is any justice in the world, Edwards, Privitere, their photographer and a handful of Loudoun County employees will soon get their share of Delgaudio’s millions.

Here’s hoping they prevail! It would be great to see Delgaudio as a pauper.

There is another HUGE up side.

He’s bilking MILLIONS of dollars from fools and anti-gay bigots and doing NOTHING with it.

Every bigot dollar wasted is a good-guys dollar earned!

Go Eugene Go!

I have enormous admiration for Rob Tisinai, slogging away at things like the page-by-page examination and rebuttal of Robert George’s marriage manifesto last year and now this “follow-the-money” research on “Public Advocate.” He’s a mensch and a marvel.
