Gay Hating VA Supervisor Eugene A. Delgaudio (R-Sterling) Calls Transexuals "IT" And "REAL LIFE TOOTSIES" Has Ties To Anti-Gay Group "Public Advocate of the United States"

Eugene A. Delgaudio (R-Sterling), a supervisor in Loudoun County, near Washington D.C., was “chastised” this week by fellow supervisors for remarks against an anti-discrimination ordinance passed by the county protecting citizens on the basis of sexual orientation:

At a Jan. 6 meeting, supervisors voted to expand Loudoun’s nondiscrimination policy to prohibit bias on the basis of sexual orientation in hiring by the county. Delgaudio fought the change in the meeting, saying he was especially offended by language in the measure that sought protection for transgendered people. In the debate, he called the board’s attempt to protect transgendered people “freaky” and “bizarre.” In a subsequent newsletter to supporters, Delgaudio wrote that “if a man dressed as a woman wants a job, you have to treat ‘it’ the same as a normal person.”

Almost equally as offensive was Delguadio’s non-apology:

Delgaudio responded, reading a revised statement with the word “it” taken out. He continued: “With apologies to real-life Tootsies” and “to all their defenders who are calling me all sorts of names and, like Mr. Burton, are saying I should apologize.”

But this is just the tip of the iceberg for anti-gay Delgaudio Delgaudio is executive director of Public Advocate of the United States, a lobbying group that reports spending more than $5 million between 1997 and 2000 on a nationwide campaign includes stopping “•Same sex marriage and the furtherance of Gay Rights”

These are just a few of the quotes that Delgaudio is responsiblr for in Public Advocate of the United States newsletters.

*”forcing the [Scouts] to hire homosexuals is the same as being an accessory to the rape of hundreds of boys.”

*”Just imagine a world where the police allow homosexual adults to rape young boys in the streets.”

*”As homosexuals die off due to AIDS, the remaining AIDS carriers prey on children to replenish the ‘Homosexual Community”

Delgaudio is a blackhearted, Republcan bigot and basically fucking nuts.  But even worse is that he is extremely dangerous.  With his proven anti-gay history the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors should do far more than just chastize him and we should not allow him to get off with only a slap on the wrist that resulted in a non-apology that was as offensive as his opriginal remark.

Contact the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Office and DEMAND that further action be taken against Eugene A. Delgaudio.  We can no longer allow people in the politicans to spew such homophobic and evil bullshit.
