Loudoun Board of Supervisors to Eugene Delgaudio: ‘No committees for you. Two years.’

But he is under investigation for using a county staff member for political gain, as first reported by The Post’s Caitlin Gibson in September, and previously reported by the staff member to county Chairman Scott York six months before that.

Even odder, Delgaudio joined in the unanimous vote to chuck him off the finance and transportation/land use committees, Erika Jacobson Moore reports in Leesburg Today. On Thursday, his lawyer released a statement saying that Delgaudio “voted for the committee assignments to avoid embroiling the entire Board in another controversy.”

Delgaudio’s full-time job is keeping the world safe from homosexuals, which he does as head of the group Public Advocate of the United States. On Thursday, he published his analysis of some recent elections, noting that reelected Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) “supported our military commanders when they stood against open homosexual interference in the military.”

He also applauded the reelection of Rep. Trent Flanks (R-Ariz.), who “supports defending our military from open homosexual interference.” One might think that any interference with the military, regardless of sexuality, should be opposed by all patriotic Americans. But I guess you’ve got to start somewhere.
