Eugene Delgaudio Finally Disciplined By Loudoun County Board of Supervisors

Jim Burroway

July 18th, 2013

Censured.

It took the Loudin County (VA) Board of Supervisors an awfully long time to get around to censuring Eugene Delgaudio, but they finally did it:

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors took decisive disciplinary action against Sterling Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio on Wednesday night, issuing a strong condemnation of problems identified in a special grand jury’s report about the veteran public official last month.

In three separate votes, the supervisors moved to formally censure Delgaudio; to place his district budget under the control of the full board, except for minor expenditures; to remove his staff aides; and to prohibit him from serving on any county, local and regional committees.

The special grand jury looked into charges by a former staffer that he illegally used taxpayer-paid staff for his anti-gay fundraising activities. The grand jury didn’t hand down any indictments but…

…but the jurors took the unusual step of issuing a report that outlined a number of possible problems with the operation of Delgaudio’s public office. Those issues included the potential misuse of county resources and county employees; a suspicion of unreported campaign donations; a lack of focus on constituent services; a hostile work environment; and the blurring of lines between work done for his county office and his anti-gay, conservative nonprofit organization, Public Advocate of the United States.

Delgaudio used to be a regular feature of BTB’s Email of the Day, but his emails stopped showing up in my inbox at the end of 2012.

Thanks for the update on Eugene. I had been wondering why we hadn’t heard much from him. Perhaps he was telling the truth in his late-2012 fundraising emails after all: “if you don’t give me all your money now, I won’t be able to keep badgering you for more money.” We didn’t, so he can’t anymore.

But I suspect it was laying low while the grand jury investigation was underway.

It’s all those long-haired men with earrings at the warehouse. It’s their fault. They finally got to the board. Mwah! Hah! Hah! Hah!

SO KZ – we should assume Jim has to use a lot of conditioner and has both “day” and “evening” earrings? Because clearly Delgaudio has used his extreme powers of perception to realize Burroway is part of the evil agenda (sorry, Jim, your cover is blown).

If you saw my hair (or, more specifically, the lack thereof), you’d know I havent used conditioner in a couple of decades.

I, too, have been curious about the absence of emails from this buffoon. I kind of miss him, in a weird way.

Now, he has a fresh new load of fundraising fodder. His victimization has reached new heights (or depths, depending on how you look at it). The forces of evil, in the form of teh radical homosexual activists, have taken control of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors AND the legal system to oppress him and squelch his valient, quixotic efforts to … whatever it is he does.

The only way he can continue his fight (to make his yacht payments, or whatever) is if YOU send in more money!
