Delgaudio Apologizes, Accepts Censure

Crackpot Eugene Delgaudio's long-running battle against his fellow Loudoun County supervisors might be over. Via the Washington Post:
For weeks, Delgaudio(R-Sterling) has vowed to fight the disciplinary action taken against him in July by the Board of Supervisors. But on Friday, he abruptly changed course and instead announced that he would accept the board’s vote to censure him, and would not appeal the dismissal of a lawsuit he had filed against the board. In his statement, Delgaudio said his “immediate objective” was assisting with the election of Republican candidates in November, adding that it had become clear that his lawsuit against the board was a distraction to serving his constituents and “mobilizing the Republican Party.” The supervisor also apologized to the public and to his fellow board members for the “embarrassment” the incident had caused. “There is a lot of fence mending I must do with my colleagues on the board,” he said. “I should have been more careful. I will be more careful.”
Local Democrats mocked Degaudio's apology, noting that he failed to also apologize for using a county employee to raise money for his political campaigns. Delgaudio continues to issue frantic pleas for donations to his hate group. (Tipped by JMG reader Jeff)
