VIRGINIA: Loudoun County Says No Charges (Yet) For Euguene Delgaudio
issued a statement regarding the FBI investigation into anti-gay crackpot Eugene Delgaudio's illegal usage of public employees for his hate group's campaigns.
When the Board’s leadership team was made aware of these allegations against Supervisor Delgaudio, we asked that the complaint filed against Mr. Delgaudio be given to the Loudoun County Commonwealth Attorney Jim Plowman for review. Mr. Plowman then referred the matter to the Commonwealth Attorney’s office in Arlington for an independent assessment. Based on the information provided at that time, Arlington’s Commonwealth Attorney did not recommend pursuing any charges against Mr. Delgaudio. It has also been alleged in recent news articles that the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is also looking into this matter. At this time, the Board, County Administration or the County Attorney has not been contacted by the FBI. This Board believes it is incumbent upon any Board of Supervisors to operate with the highest of ethical standards and conduct. Regardless of any ongoing investigation by an outside party, it is imperative that this Board investigate this matter to ensure the integrity of the Board of Supervisors, and take action if a member of the Board has violated those standards.The board will meet tomorrow to vote on pursuing their own "independent investigation" of Delgaudio's crimes.
