LCRC – Lunatic County Rage Committee

By Loudoun Insider


The Loudoun (Lunatic) County Republican Committee has devolved into a bunch of raging lunatics.  Keep this in mind when heading to the polls.  Think I’m being hyperbolic?

–  Of course exhibit number one is the recent firestorm over the LCRC sending out an official party communique with an image of President Barack Obama with a bullet hole in his forehead.  Which the official LCRC “apology” said was a light hearted attempt at satire, and that we should all get over it.  Cluelessness borne of rage against the duly elected President of the United States of America.

–  Then we have senior Republican Supervisor and party leader Eugene Delgaudio sending out the image above of a crime scene style graphic of a running pool of rainbow blood and a bloody hand print on a door.  See this post for more details and the original bloody red image.  Disgusting.

– Then there’s LCRC party elder Dick Black saying he can’t understand how you can rape a woman when “she’s in a nightie”.  Misogynism runs rampant in the paternalistic LCRC.

–  LCRC endorsed School Board candidate Kevin Kuesters was recently arrested for an incident where is wife was left with bruises and abrasions when he drove off in a rage with her half in his car.  Charges were later dropped by fellow LCRC member Jim Plowman, hopefully the bruises and abrasions have healed by now.

–  Although we haven’t seen them lately (because they are now firmly in control of the committee), LCRC meetings were once known for wackos dressed up in safari hunter outfits posing as RINO (Republican In Name Only) Hunters who would shout down and intimidate anyone who disagreed with their group think.

–  One of the LCRC’s most important strategists and officials (just ask him), Bulletproof Monk (hereafter known as Bullet Box Monk) has quotes on his website referring to the use of the bullet box when the ballot box doesn’t work and slitting throats.  He’s also threatened to knock my teeth out.  I’m not scared, but it’s creepy and full of rage.

–  A recent LCRC Executive Committee member, G. Stone, regularly gets into people’s faces in attempts to intimidate them while threatening to beat them up.  Seriously.  He’s tried this twice with me.  It didn’t work, but Rage should be his middle name.

–  And finally, not to leave out some of the wonderful “ladies” of the LCRC, we have the notorious LCRC Mean Girls who viciously attack any female who is thinner, better looking, or more popular than they are.  Rage is all the rage in the LCRC, from both sexes.

That’s your local Republican Committee in a nutshell, folks.  Rage away.  Do all LCRC candidates subscribe to these methods?  I don’t think so, but it’s hard to tell, some have yet to say anything at all about the latest national news, and others have some of the hotheads above as their most important advisors.  I’m sure you can figure out which candidates fall where on the LCRC Rage scale.

“Lunatic Fringe, I know you’re out there.  In Loudoun County Virginia,  in control of the LCRC.”


  • BlackOut says:

    JTR, I am not sure I follow you. You say Delgaudio’s picture has nothing to do with the LCRC and infer you don’t think it belong with a Republican sentiment, but then you go and say forget about it let’s go get the Senior Elected LCRC County official Delgaudio re-elected. (sic)

    You see that is the issue. No accountability from the LCRC. Just a look the other way and a dismissive excuse. That is what is happening here. I think the point of LIs post is that this theme occurs over and over again.

    There still hasn’t been an official statement from the LCRC on this. Only comments provided to the press by Sell. Nothing on the website, nothing submitted via the list serve used to send the “vile” photo out, nothing. Just press reports about what they heard the LCRC say through Sell, and a bunch of candidate statements.

    It reminds me of when Randy Minchew buried the controversy about Delgaudio’s campaign ad that changed all the “he and his” references to “she and her” when Eugene was running against Doug Reimel (open homosexual) in 2003. Behind closed doors Randy said Delgaudio should be censored but nothing ever happened because of the potential effect it would have on the Eugene’s election. An election that was two weeks away from the offensive language. No accountability. Oh there was outrage and statements saying Delgaudio was wrong, but it was all rhetoric and for public show, not reflective reform. Same thing is happening here. It’s about integrity and I don’t see any coming from the LCRC..

  • edmundburkenator says:

    “Now Donny is in the mix – as I said in his Leesburg Today letter – this only helps further convince Catoctin voters that Malcolm is with them and Higgins is a right wing ideologue who is being put forth primarily by out of district interests.”

    Donny used to work for Eugene (probably still does). Not sure how these guys sleep at night.

  • David says:

    Exactly BlackOut, I remember that well. I was extremely disappointed in Randy’s refusal to be accountable as the Chair for that behavior, just hoping it would blow over. That’s why we are at this point today. He’s been allowed to get away with it for so long, why would he even consider changing his behavior? Apparently no one in his party thinks it’s wrong.

    No integrity. No character.

  • BlackOut says:

    Donny boy started working with Delgaudio when he was a little fella. Delgaudio taught him everything he knows about how to twist things. They share very similar values and hatreds. Donny also learned how to play on people’s fears to raise cash.

    BTW, if I following Donny boys claim correctly I think Baldwin should be commended for banning “pam”, he gets extra points if he told her to shut up.

  • liz says:

    JTR, Sell delegated authority to the Comm Chair to send out emails in Sell’s name.

    That means that Sell has responsibility for what the person he delegated authority to does with that authority.

    Because you can delegate authority but not responsibility.

    And it’s pretty obvious from Sell’s first statement that he thought the images were just dandy and it was all our problems that we didn’t.

    Sell shouldn’t resign for the email…he should resign for his initial response.

    There’s a difference.

  • Eric the 1/2 troll says:

    Sounds like Anonymous Sally got banned again, eb…

  • David says:

    eb, their fundraising letters are identical in structure, tone and “hyperbole.” Draw your own conclusions.

    Oh, and Donny claims to be Eugene’s teacher.

  • JTR says:

    eb The link to the produce and funding request of Mr. Ferguson goes to items that do not mention even one republican candidate in the upcoming election. They do try to paint many of the opposition candidates negatively. This I believe is what is know as political free speech advocacy. I did note that there was no disclaimer on any of the items which is troubling. But I cannot assume he is representing or working for any specific party or candidate. Just as with the second picture above, the “LCRC” and the “Republicans” have not approved or endorsed those materials. The fact that Mr. Ferguson has previously participated in republican activities, so has LI and a whole host of others who may have opinions and produced writings that are not from the LCRC or even represent the mainstream thinking of committee members.

    David- Do you think just because Mr Delgaudio is a local elected supervisor and a member of the Republican party he is part of the committee management? He is not in any management position. He is recognized and respected for his successes as an elected official. Now what does that mean? He is a Republican and on most issues is fully in agreement with Republican principles. Does that mean all republicans agree with everything he believes or stands for, NO. Just as I am sure to your disapproval, there are a some of Democrats that are opposed to the gay agenda, but that doesn’t mean all Democrats disapprove of it. So too I believe the majority of Republicans are not in anyway anti-gay. I can assure you that the above picture does not represent the mainstream thinking of the LCRC or Republicans in general.

    All I am trying to say is that any and all of the above pictures and statements in the post at the top DO NOT represent the LCRC or Republicans in general. If you wish to support/work for or against any candidate based on your personal reasons, feel free. I would hope you would campaign and work FOR the candidate of your choice rather than the negative side. You will feel much better, and if successful Nov 8th will be a lot of fun.

  • David,

    As you recall, this is what I posted:

    Donny Ferguson said…

    Actually I’ve been doing this for almost 20 years, including a solid decade before I had ever even heard of Eugene Delgaudio.
    November 2, 2011 10:14 PM

    How do you get “Donny claims to be Eugene’s teacher” out of that?

  • David already failed a Rorschach test when he looked at a blotch of rainbow paint and immediately concocted an elaborate tale of murder and conspiracy. Now he’s weaving fictional statements from completely unrelated sentences.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    JT, there is a difference between free speech and free lies.

    And Donny doesn’t work for free, do you Donny? Is the LCRC paying you or is the money coming from other sources?

    JT, let’s see if he’s proud enough to answer. I’m glad you are troubled by his work. It marginalizes what’s left of a once proud party’s name.

  • JTR says:

    BO- You are delusional. I never said “now go get the senior elected official reelected…” I simply said his position on every single issue does not necessarily represent the position of the LCRC or all Republicans in general. As with any political party, not everyone agrees on every issue and never will. The particular view offered by the the picture is not a mainstream view of the LCRC and Republicans. The picture above was part of his regular day job as the director of an issue advocacy group, nothing to do with the LCRC except in LI’s world.

  • I’ve never received, or asked for, a penny from the LCRC. We are supported by grassroots contributions from around the country, including folks in Loudoun. Just sent out a round of thank-yous today. Biggest gift was $50.

    And everything I stated has been documented. Mr. Baldwin refused to answer his survey, then banned a nice young mother from his Facebook site for asking if he was for or against the Property Control Plan and shut down all comments from the public. All I want him to do is reverse his support for the Plan and apologize for refusing to answer a simple question about it.

  • If I am allowed to post links, you can read the situation in detail at and listen to the phone call that went out.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    He’s still taking comments, Donny. Did he ban you or something?

    He refused to answer who’s survey? Yours?

    You are a sad piece of work and I’m sure the LCRC was among your thank you notes…

  • TCJohnson says:

    So, deleting a post on Facebook is the same as saying shut up and mind your own business?

    What exactly was the woman’s post? Where did Baldwin say mind your own business?

    For a detailed account it is not very detailed.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    Donny will detail it for you. Just give him a second to make it up.

  • JTR says:

    You know when this is all over we must do Ben Dover beer blast. It will have been four years since the last.

  • BlackOut says:

    JTR, you’re correct I did take your comment further than what you really said. My apologies.

    However, it is germane to point out a committee, especially a political committee has a duty to police it’s own. Especially when someone steps out of line and creates a negative image of the body collective. Delgaudio is a perfect example. See my example above about Randy Minchew. See the lack of any response to Delgaudo’s blood photoshop.

    Sometimes integrity is more important than getting someone elected.

    I respect your view and your loyalty to your party. And do understand your wish to have a happy committee membership. But there is a big difference between accepting minor differences on policy and allowing someone to define your committee as hateful, deceptive, and arrogant. I believe as an outsider that is the image that is being sustained evident by the items I mentioned and those outlined by LI.

    All this is a big reason why I left the Republican party. I think it lost focus on issues that really matter to most Americans and has allowed extremists to hijack their agenda.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    What a mess, Donny’s BS deserves its own post, along with some other Catoctin craziness. Coming soon. Please save this portion of the discussion for that post. Back to Lunatic Fringe.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    “Sometimes integrity is more important than getting someone elected.”

    Now I owe YOU a beer.

  • Ref says:

    Donny, you are absolutely the worst kind of political mercenary. To contort Malcolm Baldwin’s completely legitimate exercise of control over his own Facebook page into some sort of sexist attack is really beyond the pale. People like you are why we can’t have a decent government in this county. Disgusting.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    New post with a fetching photo of Donny is up at the top, please move the Donny discussion there.

  • David says:

    “I can assure you that the above picture does not represent the mainstream thinking of the LCRC or Republicans in general.”

    JTR, I am well aware of that.

    No one who wants to be part of the mainstream world would publicly declare agreement with what Mr. Delgaudio says and does in his Public Advocate fundraising emails. To do so would put one squarely in KKK territory. But what we are seeing here is a Republican leadership that wants to squirm, avert its eyes and pretend it isn’t happening.

    “Sometimes integrity is more important than getting someone elected.” Yes, that.

  • David says:

    Donny, you claimed to have been doing the same thing you are doing now, “long before you ever heard of Mr. Delgaudio.” What other conclusion was possible?

    Made *me* laugh, anyway. A number of things have done that today.

  • Lloyd says:

    As to Kuesters, you need to read the statement of the prosecuting attorney at

  • JTR says:

    BO- the only ones allowing the independent actions of individuals to “define” the committee are you and LI. With regard to Mr. Delgaudio, I have never seen him claiming to speak for the committee or Republicans in any of his Public Advocacy literature. Why would you or anyone else claim he is speaking for me or the committee?

  • edmundburkenator says:

    “Why would you or anyone else claim he is speaking for me or the committee?”

    Does he or not JTR? The guy is out front at the LCRC events. If you don’t want to be associated with his antics, say so. The floor is yours.

    Delgaudio attempts to define the LCRC just as BO or LI do. Who do you really have a beef with?

  • David says:

    Read what I wrote at 10:08 and explain why you would find it acceptable to support him for public office. He runs a hate group.

  • Not Anthony Bedell says:

    There’s a committee in the county to your immediate east that does not put out $*(#@#* crazy mailings weeks before an election.

    Gonna have to go look them up..

  • BlackOut says:

    JTR, the entire Republican slate is running on the foundation of the LCRC. It’s in all their strategies. It’s integrated, it is a brand.

    Eugene Delgaudio is the senior elected member of that team. He IS by default the defacto leader.

    Just like one can’t separate Delgaudio from his day job/hate group, you can’t separate him from the LCRC or his orange hat.

    So if you don’t like his hate motivated policies then get a set and stand up and say something. Otherwise, as committee members you are complicit and approving his actions.

  • JTR says:

    There is a Virginia Republican Creed and it’s on the RPV website for you all to read. I can assure all candidates as well as members of our committee agree to the creed without any reservations. Non of the items being discussed in this thread are specified in the creed.
    BO= How can I be complicit if all of his so called hate motivated policies are his own and have not been part of any committee activity. EVER! If you have a beef with people supporting his policies than you need to take it up with the voters in his district. His record is very strong with respect to reelection and being renominated to be the candidate to represent those in his district, The LCRC does not nominate anyone to any office unless there is a vacancy at a time other than the regular cycle. The LCRC selects and administers the process by which candidates are selected. It is people within his district that actually nominate him to be the candidate. Therefore unless there is some dis-qualifier by rule or law, the LCRC must accept his nomination.
    Now if you are saying anyone associated with any body where someone is a member does something not involved with that body you deem beyond the pale all members either agree or must take some action? to remove that member. Then why shouldn’t the BOS take action against one of their members that you all say is not worthy or unfit? Is it not the same scenario? I an sure they would if such issues were part of a BOS function.

  • Fred says:

    For someone who’s made a living on the identity BlackOut to accuse anyone of hate is like the pot calling the kettle black.

  • BlackOut says:

    JTR, history tells us that the LCRC certainly doesn’t put much weight into pledges or creeds.

    In the case of Delgaudio he refuses to sign the BOS code of conduct. So much for signing anything that would promise integrity. I guess he’s worried about words of integrity or creeds being used against him when he rants against portions of our community.

    Fred, pointing out hatred isn’t the same as hating. I’ve said before I have nothing personal against Black, he comes off as a nice fellow when you talk to him. There are legitimate and documented reasons to fight the guy’s politics. He’s a hateful man when it comes to legislation against woman, homosexuals, and frankly anyone who doesn’t see the world the twisted way he sees it.

    As for making a living at being BlackOut, you don’t even know me so I guess one of my side interesting of holding Black accountable seems to have caught your attention. People like to think I do this all the time, so I must be consistent. And for that I thank you.

  • Fred says:

    I can’t say I’ve had the pleasure of meeting you so no, I do not know you personally. What I do know is your obsesive compulsive posting demonizing anything re: Black and those that support him. Funny thing, I looked up OCD on Wikipedia and your anti-Black rants were described to a tee.

    I would encourage you to pick up the phone next Tuesday night after the results come in and concede defeat to Col. Black and move on your your next project – re-electing Barrack Obama.

  • BlackOut says:

    Fred, I can assure you I am not worried nor am I consumed with Dick Black. Now he likes to tell people that I am as he has said to me before. It’s part of his defense mechanisms. It’s actually lazy if you ask me. Others who also can’t defend his extreme views always turn to personal attacks. I am use to that so are many others who share my views. You have to admit, Dick Black’s negatives are through the floor amongst those outside of the right wing viewers. I just happen to be a regular commentor with the energy to speak for the masses.

    As for re-electing Obama. We’ll have to wait and see. One of the great joys and freedoms of being an Independent is that we get to actually evaluate candidates and choose the best candidate based on options. So you’ll have to wait for my opinion.

  • […] up and brought their friends and family?  Hey, why not capitalize on all that Republican rage (spelled out in my Lunatic County Rage Committee post), and fire up the base with some anti-Obama hype, which would only be amplified when the inevitable […]
