LCDC, Local PAC Focus on Delgaudio Probe
Renewed call for transparency after story in ‘The Washington Post’ reveals limited information shared with outside prosecutors.
The Loudoun County Democratic Committee and political action committee have issued calls for transparency as well as more information related to a probe of conduct with Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio’s (R-Stering) office.
Delgaudio has stated his actions met legal requirements.
The matter started when The Washington Post published a story in which a former aide for Delgaudio described work performed for the supervisor that allegedly crossed in to his campaign activities. The aide reported giving documents to Loudoun Board of Supervisors Chairman Scott K. York (R-At Large). York recently said the information was turned over to prosecutors who subsequently found no legal wrongdoing.
The Loudoun board voted to investigate the activities for possible violations for county policy, however the latest calls appear to seek a renewed legal investigation.
A more recent story in the Post indicates that outside prosecutors received limited information with which to make a determination about investigating Delgaudio. Following the story the LCDC — still regrouping after losing every seat on the board in last year's election — and Real Advocate PAC called for greater transparency in the case.

Real Advocate considers itself a nonpartisan group; it has open seats for "Republican Party" and "Democratic Party" liaisons. The members listed on the website — Stevens Miller, Elizabeth Miller, David Weintraub and Jonathan Weintraub — are all former LCDC members.
