Delgaudio’s Critics Can’t Silence Him, But His Pals At The LTM Sure Can Silence His Critics

By Loudoun Insider

I guess Delgaudio campaign funder and LTM part owner Bill Dean had seen enough.

The LTM put up an article about the controversy that erupted when Delgaudio was chastised for using the Weekly Standard email list for one of his lying huckster appeals for money.  The title of the article was “Delgaudio:  Human Rights Campaign Can’t Silence Me”.  A nice headline making Delgaudio look like a hero.  But the comments were something else – over 100 comments with the vast majority calling out Delgaudio for what he is, a lying huckster out to stir up unnecessary trouble and make money off the unsuspecting.  The next most common group of comments were crazed rightwingers complaining about the evils of gays.  And boy oh boy did they look crazed and out of their minds.

So what does the LTM, who endorsed Delgaudio for re-election, do???  Deletes all of the comments making Delgaudio and his wacked out supporters look like the crazies they are.  Did they delete just a few that maybe crossed the line?  Nah, just got rid of each and every one, leaving behind that hero-like headline.  It must be nice to have such friends in high places in the local media when you’re a two-bit huckster.

If someone somewhere has a copy of those comments, please send them to me and I will post here as part of the record.

UPDATE:  There are some astute LTM watchers out there who regularly copy the comments when they get too hot, knowing that they may soon disappear.  All of the deleted comments are below the fold.

Many gay and lesbian servicemembers have made the ultimate sacrifice to guarantee that people like Dave and Rachel have the freedom to make their ignorant comments. In fact, the first wounded vet who lost a limb in Operation Iraqi Freedom was a gay man. Ironic, isn’t it?

Someone way down this thread made the claim that people who oppose equality for LGBT people are in the majority. That’s actually not the case. For example, 87% of Virginians say that gay and lesbian public employees should be protected from discrimination. Nationally, support for repealing DADT was running about 75%, and that was before it was repealed. Even support for full marriage equality is now above 50%, with opposition to any form of relationship recognition for gay couples in the 20+% range. The fact is that, like previous generations’ open racism, anti-gay sentiment is rapidly becoming a fringe viewpoint.

Being part of a shrinking minority doesn’t mean you guys don’t have the right to express such views – your right to do so is protected, as it should be – see above. But you will increasingly be seen as detached from reality and hateful, and your behavior as convincing evidence that explicit protection from you is necessary.

Research to date all points to there being no significant relationship between a homosexual lifestyle and child molestation. There appears to be practically no reportage of sexual molestation of girls by lesbian adults, and the adult male who sexually molests young boys is not likely to be homosexual.  Just as rape is not a sex act, but actually an act of violence, pedophilia is also not a sexual act, but a behavior of dominance over an inferior.  It is a mental illness, not a sexual choice. The figures on pedophilia can be found on any psychologcal or medical website.  Or is that science also a bunch of hokum drummed up by evil scientists?

It must be tough for people like Rachel, living in a world where homosexuals could be “anywhere”, just waiting for an opportunity to snatch your kid.  ANY man could be a homosexual just waiting to pounce and fulfill his sick desires.  Better keep little Johnny locked up in the basement.

What a pathetic distortion of reality you have created for yourself.

Something tells me that someday Delgaudio will join the ever growing list of staunch anti-gay activists who end up exposed for what they really are.  Maybe he’ll be like Ted Haggard and say he was “cured” six months after getting caught.

Rachel, don’t be so ignorant. There are both heterosexual and homosexual pedophiles, but there are far more heterosexuals pedophiles than homosexuals. In fact, the ratio is 11:1.  Gays want a partner of their own age, and most just want one partner (and have a “couples” relationship).  Pedophiles are mentally ill obsessive/compulsive individuals who want children to control/abuse.  Gays love their partners.  Pedophiles want to harm theirs.  Do some research and quit drinking tea.

Any dirty old man who wants to chase little boys is a homosexual. If he is married, he is a repressed homosexual. It just goes to show you that homosexuality encourages criminal sexual behavior and puts our children at risk.

Good luck if you are a parent of a little boy leaving your child alone in the presents of a homosexual man. I’m sure a sleep over at Johnny’s house with his homosexual Dad will make any parent think twice about homosexuals and their behavior.

Rachel, pedophiles are not gay.  They are men who want to have sex and torture children.  Big difference!  As for gays in the military, the Europeans, and Australians have always had gays serve openly and they’ve never had any issues.  They think our mentality is crazy.

“I don’t see whites listed among your groups, and whites are generally excluded from such legislation.”

Nope, whites are NOT excluded.  You can not legally be discriminated against because of your RACE – caucasian is a race.  If you were discriminated against or your child is bullied (by say a asian american) because he is white, you would have a case and would be afforded protection under the law.

Same thing with age as pointed out.  And YES there may be other people who deserve specific protection under the law – but the ones this addesses is homosexuals.

Sorry point of clarification.  Not want to serve with people who would have sex with a partner (male or female) in your room does not make you a bigot.  Restricting that judgement to just one sort of person DOES.

Imagine a gay person saying “I don’t want to serve with a straight person simply because I might walk in on him have sex with a woman and I find that disgusting.”  Would you not find that prejudiced – and also a bit obtuse?

Fact, children ion our schools who are gay or who are PERCEIVED to be gay ARE being bullied and discriminated against.  The fact that you do not wish to confront this issue and think nothing needs to be done is you approval of the practice.

African americans, asians, jewish people, hindus, christians, buddhists, women, men, hispanics, the disabled all have explicit protection against such actions.  You want to deny that protection to another minority child who are currently being abused.  Your inaction is approval.

“Children should not be discriminated agasint or bullied for any reason, period.  Why does the bill have to specify homosexuals?  Schools have absolutely no right to teach our children that it’s an exceptable behavior and on equal footing with a heterosexual relationship.”

You are right we should not need new laws to protect our children. However because there are people that have prejudices like yours that will likely look the other way when bulling happens. Hoping or thinking it will change the way the child behaves. It won’t it will damage them even more asking why would an adult not help them.

“California is forcing gay history classes down children’s throats while our jobs our being shipped to India and China (or we have to import our labor).”

I have no idea what one has to do with the other. And I would like you to post some kind of proof about your claim about gay history classes in CA. Something from a real source, not a blog.

“One teacher forced a class trip to her gay wedding.”

I have lived in the Herndon & Sterling areas of Virginia since 1997. Before that I have lived in cities all around this country and the world. You live in one of the safest areas in the country.

“Now it has infiltrated our military. I served 20 year sint he military and there is no place for this lifestyle in the military.”

Dave, I am sorry you feel this way but gays always have been, are, and always will be in the military.  You are right that there has been a shift in that they no longer want to be treated differently than you are but, frankly, I understand that.  But again this is not about DADT or gay pride parades, or anything else.  Its about children in school who are being abused and providing a mechanism to protect them.  I respect that some may not think this is not the right way to provide that protection.  I do not respect those who will use this bill to foment hate and fear toward fellow human beings.  That is what you are doing.

Regarding gay pride parades, I agree that they are not necessary and do no good to the homosexual’s cause, imo.  I suspect they view them as a form of protest, however, so I have a problem with outright condemnation until I have walked a mile in those shoes.

@ right wing freak:

“I don’t advertise my sexuality, my religion, or my ethnicity.”

There is no need to as again this has nothing to do with advertising one’s sexuality.  It has to do with protecting children from abuse BECAUSE of their sexuality.  Apparently you think its OK to abuse these youngsters.  Creep!

“And not to lump sexuality in with religion and ethnicity, because it’s not a heritage…it’s a perverted behavior, just like pedophilia and beastiality.”

A creep and a dolt.  Protection of race and religion is not about HERITAGE, it is about who people ARE.  You ARE (I’m guessing) heterosexual and you ARE therefore in the majority.  Homosexuals are a minority and they are discriminated against and abused simply because of who they ARE.  Bestiality and pedophilia are ACTIONS and are illegal actions to boot.  Homosexual SEX is an action and it is perfectly legal as well.

Maybe your kid is (or will be) homosexual.  Your outlook is that it is perfectly alright for someone to beat the crap out of him because of who he is. You are the lowest of the low.

But you still want to make this discussion about homosexual lifestyles and it is NOT about that.  It is about protecting a certain segment of our youth who are currently being abused because of who they are.  Your attempts to fear monger and incite hatred are exactly what Delgaudio has done.  Do you want people to send you money as well?

Rachel – You realize pedophilia is classified as its on sexual orientation outside the gay straight issue right? Also the vast majority of pedophiles are married men with children including those who molest boys. They have sex with the boys but never with men and do not think of themselves as gay in any way.

Gay men rarely molest.

Eugene Delgaudio holds a great deal of contempt for many groups, not just gays.  On June 20, 2008, during an interview on the Kojo Nnamdi Show he said, “This is a cesspool.  People are coming from outside of this culture and they are dumping their crap on the streets of our town.”  That’s an interesting way to characterize immigrants, regardless of their legal standing, isn’t it?  To Eugene, the immigrants are outsiders, not part of “this” culture, and apparently some of them are subhuman, or “crap” as he put it.  Delgaudio’s huge character flaws have been no secret for many years, and those who supported him should be ashamed.

There should be no SPECIAL laws for LGBT students. Convict bullying based on the laws in place, regardless of it being aimed at racial issues, LGBT, or any other category. The lives of LGBT youth are worth no more or less than straight students. This society is becoming fractured based on special rules for one group after another. Bullying is wrong, regardless of who is the victim.

As I read this article, I remembered a powerful personal sharing of the history of racism in Loudoun County by Mary Randolph at this year’s Loudoun Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration.  She spoke of the discrimination and exclusion she experienced growing up in Loudoun.  Hers was not a complaint, it was a simple statement of historic truth about the state of Loudoun.

The virulence of Mr. Delgaudio’s hate mongering is a sad commentary on the state of Loudoun today.  His continued re-election indicates that his party accepts his hateful utterances enough to continue to include him in their organization and support his re-election.  Loudoun residents who voted for Mr. Delgaudio bear responsibility for their decision to return him to office.  And those of us who know of Mr. Delgaudio’s hate agenda but do not stand up against his lies are also complicit in allowing him to continue to target the GLBT community.

Mr. Delgaudio uses fear to maintain his power.  The same fear that was used in the 1930’s in Germany and the 1950’s in Virginia to target a group and blame that group for society’s problems, justifying discriminatory behavior.

Mr. Delgaudio must not be allowed to continue his hate mongering.  This is a man who, as a Loudoun Supervisor, makes decisions about well-being of men and women in this county.  His votes impacts the safety of our children.

Our schools have identified bullying as a primary destructive behavior that causes children to fail.  Yet we have an elected official who denies the problem and, in fact, encourages its continuance in our society.  He must be stopped.

Just as Mary Randolph’s racist Loudoun existed because the community allowed it, we allow discrimination against the GLBT community to continue when we do not forcefully speak out, when we do not boldly stand up against this injustice.  Because when one of us is not safe, none of us are are safe.

If we oppose oppressive behavior like Mr. Delgaudio’s, if we tolerate hatred, then we are doomed to repeat our history.  We must not let that happen.

Eric, I read it twice man.  I felt like I was reading legislation brought to you by the trial lawyers association of America.  I don’t disagree with the premise, just the manner in which they are attempting to execute.  Section 2, line 2 is exactly what we should not be doing.  The bullying of a GLBT student is no more of a crime than the bullying of a straight student.

Like I asked before, where’s the legislation to protect fat kids, who protects ugly kids, who protects poor kids?  Gay kids are not the only ones being bullied.

Enacting solid anti-bullying legislation to serve all of our children is the most appropriate course of action.

Special interests do nothing but divide and breed contempt for those seeking special treatment.

Obviously Delgaudio is getting elected time and time again by the “Majority” who agrees that Homosexuality is not acceptable in society. All you Pro-Homosexuals should wake up and realize YOU ARE IN THE MINORITY. To add icing on the cake, we got Dick Black down in Richmond to make sure your Pro-Homo agenda is Dead on Arrival.

I live in Eastern Loudoun and have never supported or voted for Delgoofio.  He’s a loose cannon that’s not doing any good for the county in the way of PR or otherwise with his proselytizing and infusing personal bias in his rhetoric. Censure by the board would be appropriate, if he publishes anything like this under his ‘supervisor’ title.

I can’t believe Sterling elected a hate-monger to represent them to the BOS.  It’s wrong to discriminate against people because of who they are.  It isn’t some contagious disease.  It’s a sexual preference created by your perfect God.  How will you handle it?  What would Jesus do?  He was probably a homosexual?  Just sayin’

Check the topic of the article, Donna. We’re not the ones having a hissy fit. If you didn’t care, you wouldn’t be commenting – so please don’t be disingenuous. There would be no need to discuss the issue at all were it not for people like Mr. Delgaudio. I surely have other things to do.

You made me laugh, Donna P.

Here’s a synopsis of my “lifestyle” for the day so far: Work for client. Fold laundry. Walk dogs. Cook up some tasty venison from the freezer. Watch news. Disgusting, isn’t it? Maybe you should try getting to know some gay people.

I heard once about a library program where you could “rent” a kind of person you didn’t really know anything about for an hour, and ask them questions.

Not everyone who lives in Delgaudio’s district voted for him.  Please don’t say “all you Sterling people” etc., etc.  With redistricting this past year, Delgaudio’s district now encompasses a larger area.  Were they hoping these new districts would counter-vote the usual folks who have kept him in office?

Donna, it is better with the internet since there isn’t physical violence and the bullying is documented so it can’t be denied.

Since kids aren’t engaged in sexual orgies in school, no one has to accept homosexuality. The only people who are forced to accept homosexuality are men who are raped by other men.

What social conservatives are being forced to accept is that they cannot discriminate against others just because they perceive another might want to have sex in a way they disapprove.

Kids are going to bully other kids no matter what.  It’s worse now than ever before because of children’s access to the internet.  You can’t force others to accept homosexuality.  Some people find their lifestyle disgusting.

Its all about the money.  The more Mr. Delaudio can work up a “certain” crowd, the more money flows his way.  Shock system.  Working the crowd, selling snake oil for all that ails you.  Oh for the day that some people can stop the hate, and keep their money in their pockets, is the day that Degaudio will be unable to make his mortgage payments.

Regardless of whether you think the legislation is warranted or not, however, Delgaudio is simply lieing in his PA piece and is trying to incite fear and hatred against gays (and raise money to boot) through his writing and his response to being challenged for it.

I fully expect Clarke to call him out for his actions – NOT!!

“I am not an advocate of discrimination or bigotry, I am simply pointing out that every American deserves the same protection under the law.”

Jerk, that is exactly why this legislation is being proposed (see my response below).  Other minority groups are afforded greater protection under the law and homosexuals have fewer legal protections – yet ARE routinely discriminated against.  I would suggest you actually read the legislation as I cited below – it took me all of 15 minutes.

@ Jerkstore, your metaphor is far less relative than mine.  I give examples of congenital characteristics, you site geographic knowledge.  In addition, your poor use of grammar and punctuation indicates that you may be a slightly bigger idiot than I, my friend.

I love it when the hypocrites that are always screaming about all inclusiveness, open-mindedness and not being judgmental on how someone else chooses to live their lives, start criminalizing anyone that disagree’s with them.

I am not an advocate of discrimination or bigotry, I am simply pointing out that every American deserves the same protection under the law.  Those of you prejudging an entire group of people without knowing them based on what a few idiots write on some shitbox message board are just as guilty as the gay bashers, racists and anti-semites.

Do what you have to do, just don’t ask for special treatment or for someone else to pay for it.

Tue, Jan 17 at 04:04 PM by Embarrassing for all | Report this comment


Don’t be surprised when a major corporation decides not to locate in Loudoun because the folks in Sterling find it appropriate to elect a disgraceful human being to public office.

Outside of intolerant rednecks and Christians who think the Jesus would agree on limiting the rights of homosexuals, most people find this to be a non-issue.  In fact, corporate America embraces it and they don’t want to live in “backwards” areas of the country.  If some executive from California saw that Delgaudio was an elected official here, what do you think their perception of Loudoun would be?  Would they want to move their company HQ here?  I don’t think so.

Eugene Delgaudio is no different than a local KKK chapter who litters a neighborhood with flyers including hate speech toward non-whites and touting “White Power”.  Of course, some of the people around here would probably elect a Klansman too.

“(6) While Federal statutory protections expressly address discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, disability, and national origin, Federal civil rights statutes do not expressly include ‘sexual orientation’ or ‘gender identity’. As a result, students and parents have often had limited legal recourse to redress for discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.”

Also, go read the Act here:

It says nothing that could possibly be interpreted as Delgaudio says:

‘The Public Advocate email says the bill will “require schools to teach appalling homosexual acts … spin impressionable students in a whirlwind of sexual confusion and misinformation … force private and even religious schools to teach a pro-homosexual curriculum …”’

He needs to step down from the BOS acording to the Clarke Doctrine.

Not a single nutty claim he makes about the Student Non-Discrimination Act can be found in the text of the bill. Unfortunately, lying is not a legal cause for removal from office.

Meanwhile, commenter Sarah Cohen demonstrates the accuracy of my remarks: Mr. Delgaudio “defames us in a particularly inflammatory way, one designed to make his target audience fear for the safety of their children and all they hold dear. His lies about us inflame hatred.”

I guess I just don’t understand the need for specialized treatment for every individual special interest group.  I got bullied when I was a kid because I was the same size as the older kids, played in the same sports leagues as the older kids, but obviously wasn’t as mature as the older kids, so they tormented me.  Should I have a dedicated “big kid curriculum” so that future big kids aren’t picked on?

How about kids with red hair, glasses, fat kids, dumb kids, ugly kids?  Individual curricula?

Get over yourselves.  You’re not special, you’re just gay.

Have laws that protect everyone and enforce them blindly.  A gay kid that’s getting picked on is no more tragic than a straight kid that’s getting picked on.

God Bless Delgaudio. The homosexual agenda is to try and brain wash children into accepting their sick and disgusting behavior as a long term investment to change the legal, social, and economic fabric of society. They want brain washed children today to be rubber stamps for elections in the coming decades.
Keep Homosexuality OUT OF THE CLASSROOM. Children need to be learning about Math, Science, etc. Not about homosexuals dancing on cars with rainbow flags and leather outfits.

Excellent article, now on to the next step.  Delgaudio is raising millions with his special brand of fear mongering.  He raises most of this money by preying on the ignorant.  Add to this that he does very little if anything in way of actually lobbying for his self-aggrandizing cause and pockets a majority for himself as a management fee.  (details available via public records)

The IRS should have a field day investigating Delgaudio’s bogus and in jeopardy tax exempt status.

Wow!  Congrats on the new job Trevor!  So weird that you are writing for a newspaper that I get in my driveway!  Small world!  Looking forward to future articles!


  • Crap. I had hoped to hold off bagging on local Republicans as part of my New Year’s resolution. Between Delgaudio’s incendiary attacks on homosexuals and Reid’s right-out-of-the-box lies about cleaning the medians, that just ain’t gonna happen. LTM’s deletion of the comments, in my opinion, is not necessarily LTM’s fault. It’s the extremism embodied in Delgaudio’s email that draws out the extreme reactions not fit for print.

    I discussed Delguadio’s original email a few months ago (, and I feel a need to restate my bottom line:

    “Frankly, even if he were to shovel my driveway, cook my dinner and wipe my kids’ butts, no level of constituent service could justify voting for, much less openly supporting, such an individual.”

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Well said, Lloyd, but I have just seen too many instances of bias from the LTM regarding Bill dean’s favorite candidates. Also notice that the LTM has yet to put up any article dealing with the appointment controversies or the sign issues. After all, that might make Bill Dean’s BOS look bad.

    Just to refresh everyone’s minds about LTM owner Bill Dean’s donations:

    And those of his company, MC Dean:

    So with $1,500 to Delgaudio from Dean personally, and $14,500 to Delgaudio from the company that he alone controls, we have a total of $16,000 from the part owner of the “newspaper” to this huckster.

  • BlackOut says:

    Delgaudio was flying off the handle when folks started to mention that the IRS should look into his tax exempt status.

    Has anyone seen a third party validity audit of Public Advocate? Most legitimate operations will commission or cooperate with a third party auditor to obtain an independent clean financial bill of health. I’ve not been able to find any evidence of an audit.

    Isn’t there something requiring an audit if the organization raises over $500K?

    Nope they wiped all comments. I recall the wackjobs posting as “right wing freak” and “Ashburn Dave” among others.

    They spun this thing into DADT territory among others. Refused to focus on the issue at hand (anti-bullying legislation). Delgaudio simply lied in his PA statement about homosexual curriculum in order to incite hatred against homosexuals and (most importantly to him) drive up monetary contributions.

    Where is Janet Clarke when you need her…?

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Someone had copied all of the comments and just sent them to me, they’re posted below the fold in the post.

  • BlackOut says:

    I just read through the comments. What was the issue other than it calls out Delgaudio for issues he publicly defends in the article?

    Overall the dialog was reasonable. Certainly different opinions were being expressed but it really was out of hand. It seemed to be centered around the issue. Especially the more recent ones.

    BTW, the “Report This Comment” links still work. Good chance to report an issue with the censorship.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    I was told by someone at the LTM that the comments were getting too vulgar and they didn’t have the time to go through each and every comment. I don’t buy it. You would think maybe they would just ban the commenters who consistently make vulgar comments. Instead they let those people rule the roost and delete each and every comment, most of which were absolutely on topic, yet critical of the man they endorsed and to who their sugar daddy owner gave sixteen grand to.

  • BlackOut says:

    Vulgar? That might of been what Delgaudio called them when he made what I am sure were multiple calls of bitching.

    I didn’t read anything vulgar in the comment debate. Seemed reasonable to me.

  • LI, that’s what I thought, too.

    I logged off after making my last one around 7:30 last night, and this morning they were all gone. I wonder if there were defamatory comments after mine that precipitated it. Did anyone see them later than 7:30 last night?

  • BO, as for Public Advocate’s tax status, the fine print on its website says “Contributions or gifts to Public Advocate are not tax deductible. Public Advocate of the United States is a non-profit 501(c)4 organization.” Of course, the site DOESN’T say anything about non-deductibility on the donation page.

    As a (c)(4), it can lobby without jeopardizing its exempt status. However, it is not able to receive tax-deductible donations. That said, there’s still the question about how its funds are spent, and there’s no information about that available on line or through Charity Navigator.

  • BlackOut says:


    Lloyd, the financial data for Public Advocate comes from IRS Form 990. By definition, “Form 990 is an annual reporting return that certain federally tax-exempt organizations must file with the IRS. It provides information on the filing organization’s mission, programs, and finances.”

    According to

    Delgaudio filed 990s are available on this site but you need to register. It is free. The last filed 990 that Guidestar has is from 2009. Tons of questions come from that one. I wonder what he has been doing in recent years?
